FLUID tokens will be used to reflect the overall performance of the ecosystem and to allow anyone (not only cross-chain liquidity providers) to participate in our revenue and reward streams - this can be accessed by users through two solutions:
FLUID - Revenue Recycling Pools
(RRP) FLUID - Fee Reduction Pools (FRP)
Staking FLUID tokens will be subject to loyalty appreciation - the longer people stake their tokens, the higher their staking score, rewards, and all other project-related bonuses.
Above the loyalty appreciation model incentives two layers of engagement:
Money-value of the involvement
Time-value of the involvement
The distribution of rewards will be based on FLUID token holders' staking score, calculated as an average of the FLUID token being held from the previous 12 months ($FLD tokens added to liquidity pools are counted twice).
Please refer to the table below for a better overview of how staking score is being accumulated:
Table 1 - staking score aggregation during the period of 12 months
As visible in the table above, the staking score for users staking 1000 tokens is being gradually increased each month until reaching 1000 in month 12.
Staking score can’t be higher than the principal staked amount, hence it would be still equal to 1000 in month 13, and the only way to keep increasing it is staking more $FLD tokens.
Staker can always ‘add stake’, but ‘partial unstake’ operation is not possible (so as to avoid exploiting the staking score mechanics) - stakers can only unstake 100% of staked tokens and unstaking means resetting staking score to 0.
Staking score is combined with staking level. Upon crossing specific staking score threshold, staker will unlock higher account level and hence rewards they would normally receive will be subject to appropriate multiplier - please refer to the table below:
Table 2 - staking score and levels
Rewards multipliers should not be understood as an actual mathematical multiplication on rewards received, but rather as a staker’s “weight” in a rewards distribution process - please see chart below for better understanding:
PWeighted rewards distribution model
As stated above, the multipliers are not affecting the core amount of tokens in a single drop, only the proportions of the split between the stakers.
