IONX Rewards
Overview of IONX rewards programs available at rewards.charged.fi

Overview

Charged Particles is currently offering IONX rewards to community members who provide liquidity to the official IONX/ETH Uniswap V2 pool and/or stake their IONX at rewards.charged.fi. The Charged Particles Rewards program serves two purposes:
1) Distribute more IONX tokens to community members to help the protocol further decentralize
2) Reward users for providing Liquidity to the IONX/ETH pool on Uniswap V2 or holding their IONX long-term

V1, V2 and V3

Why are there 3 versions?
  • We only ran V1 and V2 for 12 weeks to ensure we could make improvements to contracts if needed. After running both programs successfully for 6 months, we launched V3 for another 24 weeks. The entire Rewards program will last 2 years, so V4 will be the final iteration.
  • After receiving feedback from V1 and V2, we made user interface changes and decided the contracts and reward amounts do not need to be changed at this time. The final version of the program (V4) will start at the end of V3 and will include additional
Timeline
  • The first 2 iterations of the IONX rewards program ran for 12 weeks
  • V2 ends Monday, November 22 at 21:43 UTC, and V3 begins directly afterwards.
    • After V2 has ended users will still be able to withdraw and harvest from the V1 contract, but they will only be able to deposit funds into the V3 contract via rewards.charged.fi
  • In order to continue earning rewards, users must withdraw their IONX from V1 and migrate them to V3

How to use rewards.charged.fi

Staking IONX
  • Connect your wallet
  • Click GET IONX button on UI to get IONX from Uniswap
    • IONX Address: 0x02D3A27Ac3f55d5D91Fb0f52759842696a864217
  • Approve token
  • Deposit IONX
Staking IONX/ETH LP Tokens
  • Connect your wallet
    • Click Get IONX/ETH button on UI
    • Provide both IONX and ETH to the Uniswap L2 pool
    • Approve token
    • Deposit
Harvesting
  • After each epoch ends, users are able to harvest the IONX they earned for participating in the prior Epoch
  • Harvesting begins in Epoch 2
    • Epoch 2 of V2 begins Monday, September 6th at 21:43 UTC
    • If you want to compound your rewards, re-stake your harvested IONX
Withdrawing
  • Click Withdraw on UI
  • If you withdraw before the end of an epoch, you forfeit your rewards for the epoch
  • You may withdraw after the end of an epoch and still earn rewards for it
    • e.g. if I stake for all of epoch 1, and withdraw in epoch 2, I will still get rewards for epoch 1, but I won't get any for epoch 2 once epoch 3 starts

Migrating IONX from V1 or V2 to V3

1) Click the Withdraw All button on the appropriate section (V1 or V2) of rewards.charged.fi to withdraw your IONX or IONX/ETH
2) After successfully withdrawing, Harvest your IONX rewards from the same tab you withdrew from
3) After Withdrawing and Harvesting, navigate to V3 of the Yield Farming program
4) Once on the V3 Tab, Approve the V3 Staking Contract to transfer your IONX or IONX/ETH (depending on which pool you're depositing into)
5) After you've successfully approved V3, Deposit your tokens to start earning IONX rewards

How Estimated Rewards are Calculated

Expected Rewards = (User Pool Balance * Epoch Multiplier) / Total Pool Balance
Variables: Expected Rewards = how much IONX a user can expect to earn User Pool Balance = user's balance of IONX or IONX/ETH in the staking pool Total Pool Balance = all IONX or IONX/ETH in the staking pool Epoch Multiplier = Starts at 1 and progresses to 0 over the course of an epoch, making it so users who are in the epoch for longer get higher rewards than those who join towards the end

Annual Percentage Return (APR)

DISCLAIMER: The stated APR (the 'Rate') is denominated in terms of $IONX, not USD or other fiat currency. The Rate is a forward-looking projection based on our good faith belief of how to reasonably project results over the relevant period, but such belief is subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties (including smart contract security risks and third-party actions) which could result in a materially different (lower or higher) token-denominated APY. The Rate is not a promise, guarantee or undertaking on the part of any person or group of persons, but depends entirely on the results of operation of smart contracts and other autonomous systems (including third-party systems) and how third parties interact with those systems after the time of your deposit. Even if the Rate is achieved as projected, you may still suffer a financial loss in fiat-denominated terms if the fiat-denominated value of the relevant tokens (your deposit and any tokens allocated or distributed to you pursuant to the Rate) declines during the deposit period.
APR Formula: (Total Rewards for Epoch * 52 weeks ) / Total Pool Balance
Assumptions:
  • Total Pool Balance = Total Pool Balance as of the last Ethereum block
  • User deposits at the beginning of an epoch, and therefore has an epoch multiplier of 1
  • User remains in the pool for the entire epoch
