Rubicon’s Maker Rewards Program will begin on July 1, 2023 at 12:00 UTC 🔴✨

Program Details

In total, 80,000 OP will be rewarded to liquidity providers on Rubicon over 3 months.

Every 4 weeks, 26,667 OP will be airdropped to addresses, proportional to their maker volume in the previous epoch. The program will run for an initial 3-month period, with an option to be renewed for two more months if it hits certain benchmarks.

Volume on the following token pairs will be counted for the Maker Program:


How is Maker Volume Calculated?

The RubiconV2_Optimism subgraph will be the source of truth for trading volumes throughout the contest.

Whether you are submitting limit orders through the Rubicon App or placing offers through an automated trading bot, all maker volume will earn rewards! 🥳

Program Objective

The rewards program was initially outlined in Rubicon’s grant proposal on the Optimism Governance forum, with the goal of incentivizing active market makers and liquidity providers, who are essential power users of the protocol. On average, maker addresses place more than 1000 offers, and adjusting for addresses with more than 100 offers, the average jumps to more than 37,000 offers!
