Detailed rules about Privatize to Maximize Campaign IV

This round of incentive program has a total prize pool of 20,000,000 KMA and consists of two types of rewards: Gas Fee Paid Rewards and Score Rewards. All transactions made within the 4-week period are eligible for the following two types of rewards:

Part 1: Gas fee paid rewards

Users who conduct privatized stable assets transactions using MantaPay will receive a stipend that covers a certain percentage of their gas fee paid. With a total reward pool of 16,000,000 KMA, each week’s reward breakdown is as follows:

  • Week 1: 4,000,000 KMA
  • Week 2: 4,000,000 KMA
  • Week 3: 4,000,000 KMA
  • Week 4: 4,000,000 KMA

Transaction amount cap for Gas Fee Paid Rewards will be set at 100. The rewards percentage will be determined based on the following multiplier scale:

  • If Multiplier = 0.0002X, the rewards will be 30000% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.0002X, <= 0.1X, the rewards will be 1000% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.1X, <= 0.2X, the rewards will be 300% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.2X, <= 0.3X, the rewards will be 150% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.3X, <= 0.4X, the rewards will be 133% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.4X, <= 0.5X, the rewards will be 125% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.5X, <= 0.6X, the rewards will be 120% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.6X, <= 0.7X, the rewards will be 116% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.7X, <= 0.8X, the rewards will be 114% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.8X, <= 0.9X, the rewards will be 112% of users’ gas fee paid
  • If Multiplier > 0.9X, <= 1X, the rewards will be 100% of users’ gas fee paid

To ensure fairness, every address can only participate in one out of the four total incentive program weeks, which means addresses that initiate transactions in week 1 will not be counted in the reward system in following weeks.

Rewards will be distributed on a rolling basis, with rewards being claimed at the end of each week. Unclaimed rewards at the end of each week will be added into the pool of next week. Unclaimed rewards at the end of the four-week campaign will be carried over to future Calamari incentive programs.

Part 2: Score reward

In addition to the Part 1 rewards, we will also have the Manta Shield Score Reward, which is designed to further incentivize users to privatize their tokens and participate in the MantaPay ecosystem. The total reward pool will also be set at 4,000,000 KMA, split equally across the four-week period.

Users will earn a score based on two factors:

  1. Gas fees paid — dollar value
  2. To private tokens’ dollar value

The formula for calculating a user’s score is:

UserScore = ([Gas Fees Paid] ^ 0.8) * ([To-Private Value] ^ 0.2)

The top 100 users with the highest scores will be eligible to receive rewards at the end of each week. The top 6 users will receive 80,000 KMA each, and users ranked 7th through 100th will receive 5531.91488 KMA each.

Reward Vesting Schedule

After the conclusion of the four-week campaign, there will be a 7-day notice period to address any potential concerns regarding the accumulated rewards. The rewards will be distributed to the eligible participants 48 hours after the public notice period ends.
