Liquidity Mining & Staking

Liquidity Mining

To incentivize participation in daily token pools, we are launching a liquidity mining program concurrent with MVP launch on Ethereum later this year.

In the manner of great DeFi projects like Synthetix and Balancer, this program will distribute a fixed amount of POLS tokens daily. All liquidity providers will receive POLS from this as-yet-undetermined fixed amount on a pro-rata basis.

For example, if there is 1000 ETH in fixed swap volume for 24 hours, a user that contributed 100 ETH of that volume will receive 10% of the total daily liquidity rewards.

Liquidity providers can claim their POLS token rewards after 24 hours and will have 7 days to claim their reward tokens on the Polkastarter dashboard. Unclaimed tokens will be sent back to the rewards pool for later distribution. Staking for Pool Access

For high-demand pools, access can be limited to the top liquidity and network contributors. Password protection and whitelisting are potential features that could provide additional limits. However, to best align the interests of the entire Polkastarter community, the POLS token can be used as a coordinating mechanism.

For instance, if community members want access to certain token pools, they must stake POLS tokens. Of course, token pool creators have full autonomy over this process. For projects that use the Polkastarter platform, our goal is to craft diverse token holder communities loyal to the project and invested in its long-term success.
