FLUID Liquidity Pools
The FLUID platform itself is simply a blockchain protocol that, by design, does not offer any resources for utilisation. As such, in order for the platform to perform its core function, users would need to be incentivised to become liquidity providers and stake their digital asset pairs (e.g. USDT/FLD) into the decentralised market making pools to provide the necessary liquidity for transactions. As compensation for opportunity costs, these liquidity providers which help to promote adoption of the FLUID platform by staking or including assets to liquidity pools in exchange for LP tokens would be rewarded with FLD (i.e. "yield farming" on the FLUID platform), according to each user's relative contribution after various adjustment and correction parameters.​
Where an exchange has their own pool if they choose to open it up, they will be able to: ​
  • Crowdsource liquidity
  • Reward loyalty by passing some of the extra upside to their users​
  • Choose what share of the available fee reduction is received as a rebate in FLDs tokens, or;
  • Choose how the rebate is shared between the owner and the public funding yield pools ​
Exchanges can choose to keep their pools closed, but this option limits rewards to those generated by FLUID that exchanges hold.
It is important to reiterate that each pool simply comprises a set of autonomous smart contracts deployed on the relevant blockchain network, operated directly by users calling functions on it (which allows them to interact with other users and/or pool their own selected assets in a peer-to-peer manner). There is no further control by or interaction with the original entity which had deployed the smart contract (which entity solely functions as a provider of technical tools for users, and is not offering any sort of securities product or regulated service).
