#4 Liquidity Mining Incentives for cSwap pools (Phase 3)


cSwap DEX has been launched on the Mainnet. With strong frameworks, good mechanisms, and a robust build, a good but healthy incentive system is imperative for the growth of the DEX. Keeping this in mind, we open the discussion to the community on an upcoming proposal to start the next phase of liquidity incentives on cSwap DEX by allocating 214,286 $CMDX for 7 days - to be distributed as per the model for Liquidity rewards. These rewards will start when the current reward phase ends.

The weighting of this week’s rewards is based on pool liquidity.

The Master pool will receive 50% of the total incentives allocated for the phase. The other 50% will be distributed equally amongst the Child pools as external incentives. A detailed breakdown of these incentives is in the table at the end of the discussion.

Let’s have a quick look at the rewards mechanism before proceeding further:

There are two types of pools on cSwap DEX: Master Pool and Child Pool. Master Pool would be used on cSwap and other apps as a prerequisite for earning token incentives.

cSwap has two types of incentive distribution parameters; the ‘Master Pool/Child Pool Rewards System’ mechanism and the ‘External Incentives’ mechanism.

There are multiple combinations for the rewards mechanics. Still, in a nutshell, any liquidity provider will earn maximum rewards only if they provide liquidity in both the master pool and one or more of the child pools. A better understanding of the reward mechanism can be gained from cSwap docs.

The pools incentivized for the next phase will be:

  • CMDX/axlUSDC

The breakup of rewards for each pool is as follows:

Note: Rewards are in $CMDX

We intend to run the incentives until the protocol matures. Post maturity, these incentives will be optimized again after discussion with the community.


Happy to see that my suggestion of having liquidity based incentives, iso equal weightage for all child pools is implemented.
This captures the essence of the pools better…
Happy to see CMST /ATOM get more incentives as lot of people trying to MINT CMST with ATOM need to swap while closing the Vault
There they need to swap on cSwap & we have got feedback about the liquidity issues there…


Hey, I agree it’s good to have rewards based on liquidity. The master pool keeps its liquidity, it’s great!!!

But an additional idea, some pool seems important to me for the HARBOR protocol, for example, the CMST / ATOM pool, and the CMDX / CMST and CMDX / AXUSDC pools, can we consider an additional reward (in harbor ) for these pools, for the moment since we can’t mint CMST with OSMO and JUNO we are not considering additional rewards in Harbor, do you see the idea?

Amazing… Happy to see nice rewards on the pools and hoping to participate in more.

Good to see this comes up every week at the moment. This gives the possibility to change on a very fast basis.

Is there also insight in the effect of these incentives? Is there a dashboard or overview where it is shown how cSwap matures and liquidity changes over time?

Hey @Leonoors_Cryptoman !
We don’t have a dashboard yet, but it is certainly in the pipeline to be built.
