Liquidity mining is a community-based, data-driven approach to market making, in which a token issuer or exchange can reward a pool of miners to provide liquidity for a specified token.

Liquidity mining sets forth an analytical framework for determining market maker compensation based on (1) time (order book consistency), (2) order spreads, and (3) order sizes, in order to create a fair model for compensation that aligns a miner's risk with rewards.

Key dates

During the open beta, we track real exchange order books for real user-submitted orders, but we pay testnet Ethereum token rewards (no value). After the commencement of production launch, we will pay mainnet Ethereum token rewards.
