πŸ¦… Launching the Eagle Club

We are excited to announce that we are launching The Eagle Club, a VIP program for top liquidity miners today. The goal of the Club is to enhance the user experience of top performing miners and to provide dedicated support to help them trade more confidently and perform better.

Along with the launch of the Eagle Club, we have also rolled out a real-time leaderboard where miners can see how they rank versus other miners.

🧩 Liquidity mining term change and updates for April

Reducing max spreads to 3%

Following feedback from miners and a decrease in market volatility, we have reduced the max spread for all campaigns to 3% (from 5% previously).

The new curve increases the relative weighting for miners placing orders with tighter spreads.

For the most part, miners were already generally using spreads tighter than 3%. Below is an example of the recent spread distribution for the Zcoin markets. The majority of orders being placed by miners were already 3% or lower.

Pausing Harmony ONE Campaign & Upcoming Campaigns

Following recent market volatility, Harmony has decided to put their campaign on hold and will evaluate when to restart the program.

For miners who were participating in ONE pairs, you can still earn rewards by joining the other campaigns for RLC, XZC, and ZIL.

We plan to bring more new campaigns onto the platform. Stayed tuned for an imminent announcement!
