How are rewards calculated?

Reward calculation is based on two core activities: volume generation and liquidity provision. The more volume a user generates and the more liquidity he/she provides, the more rewards he/she will reap by the end of the campaign.

Low rates of slippage lead to greater rewards. The narrower the gap between desired buy and sell prices, the more rewards the liquidity provider earns.

Rewards for volume generation are based on the total volume a user has generated by the end of a given campaign. Users are rewarded according to how much volume (in percentage terms) they have generated relative to others. Example: if a user generates 50% of all created volume in a campaign, he/she would earn 50% of the available rewards.
