I believe our recent atomic orders promotion, where traders were rewarded for using the new feature by trading volume, shows that the trade mining program we have in place at the exchange protocol level needs updating. Definitely when trading ETH tokens the reward feels very low compared to ETC.
It would be good to start discussing this now as updating the protocol’s trade mining price most likely means needing to deploy a new order book contract, so needs to be well planned in advance. I think there is two changes that would be good to make:
- Change the trade mining reward to be awarded by trade volume like the recent promotion (currently it goes off trading fees paid).
- Make the amount rewarded higher as currently it feels too low. Off the top of my head, if something like 1 ETH in trading volume were to equate 500 or 1000 SATURN tokens, then I think things are already looking better?
