Eligibility Requirements

  • The individual must have a minimum of 100 INJ successfully delegated to one of the validators participating in Equinox staking

Reward Amount

The specific reward amount is based on the amount of INJ that a person staked. So, a person with 200 INJ would receive more ETH relative to a person who only staked 100 INJ.

However if a linear distribution had been used, someone who staked 1M INJ would likely receive nearly all of the rewards while another person with 100 INJ would receive virtually nothing. So to make this process fair a bonding curve was utilized as illustrated below.

Within this form of distribution someone with more INJ would receive a higher reward amount but this amount would decrease over time.

These are the steps used to distribute the rewards:

  1. 149 individuals were randomly chosen from the pool of stakers (this was done to ensure fairness and to also provide a meaningful reward amount to each user)
  2. The stakers were then ranked based on the amount of their INJ holding
  3. The individual with the highest amount of INJ (rank 1) holding within this pool was given $105.817444 in ETH
  4. The rank 2 user was given $105.109638, etc.
  5. This pattern continued until the 149th person was given $39.190203 in ETH
  6. The price of ETH snapshot was taken today and was pegged to $2,117.20
  7. We then proceeded to transfer the ETH to each winner (we made sure to cover any and all gas fees in the process)
