Tier Breakdown

Every Thursday at 08:00:00 UTC, we calculate the trading data from last Thursday 08:00:00 UTC to this Thursday at 07:59:59 and then update the user's Tier according to the Tier rules. The Tier rules are as follows (configuration is supported):



Epoch trading amount >=1M USD



Epoch trading amount >=500K USD



Epoch trading amount >=250K USD


Note: The tier criteria and weights are subject to change based on pool liquidity and overall trading activity on the platform

Rewards will be distributed equally across all users who qualify for a certain tier

Trading Rewards calculation formula:

At the end of each trading reward cycle, the user’s effective trading volume in that cycle will be calculated to determine the weightage and amount of USDC rewards.

The formula for the number of specific rewards is: r = min{R * W/Sum(Wi), R * 20%}, the parameters are as follows:


Amount of USDC reward to be mined by the user for the current epoch


The reward of the current epoch R=(USDC value of ETH fee + USDC value of DAI fee + USDC value of BTC fee + USDC fee)*0.25, of which 1% Swap fee needs to be deducted when it comes to the settlement, for example: when the weekly ETH fee is 1 and the ETH Price is 2,000, the ETH fee for the USDC value = 1 * 2000 * 0.99


Weight corresponding to the user's Tier level


Total weight score of all users. Wi represents the weight of any user, and sum(Wi) represents sum weight scores of all users.

  • The max revenue share per user is capped at 20% of the revenue reserved for the program
