Synthetix Volume Program trial extended

Synthetix Volume Program trial extended

After three months of trialing our new Volume Program, we have decided to extend the trial for another three months as we explore making the Volume Program a permanent component of the Synthetix protocol.

The Synthetix Volume Program is a new initiative designed to incentivize native integration of the Synthetix protocol across DeFi platforms and protocols by providing a new revenue stream for these projects. This program offers a fee rebate to approved integrators who implement Synth-to-Synth swaps natively and generate protocol exchange volume through their interfaces.

Current Volume Program members

There are currently eight projects live on the Volume Program with several more in the process of integrating. The current Volume Program members are:

The Volume Program trial

The structure of the program's trial was as follows:

  1. The program launched Midnight UTC on the 1st September 2020
  2. 25% of the net fees paid would be rebated
  3. Rebates would be paid in SNX
  4. Three-month trial
  5. Capped at 100k SNX per month during the trial
  6. The cap may be raised at our discretion
  7. If the cap is hit rebates would be distributed pro-rata
  8. Participants must run a consumer-facing DeFi protocol, app, or website.
  9. Participants must fill out the application form here: Volume Program Application
  10. Once approved participants received a referral code that needed to be included in all transactions

Results

Since the inception of the program, we have tracked 1500+ trades and $26,000,000+ USD from Volume Program members. Soon, we will be adding a section to stats.synthetix.io which will allow anyone to track the performance of Volume Program members.

These statistics are exciting as they reflect measurable growth occurring beyond the output of the Synthetix Protocol's core contributors.

Moving forward

The structure of the program, as outlined above, will remain the same with the addition of one new rule:

11. Participants must produce a minimum of $5 USD worth of Volume Program rewards to qualify for rewards distribution during the trial

Rewards will also be sent out to participants on a monthly basis moving forward.
