Here at dYdX, we are passionate about creating the best trading experience possible. A big part of this experience is due to the community that we have built. To award those who continue to help expand the dYdX community and share our product, we are rolling out a self service affiliate program! This has been one of the most commonly requested features from our community, and we are excited to make it available today. The self service affiliate program will enable all dYdX users to spread the word about dYdX and earn in the process.
After completing the onboarding process within their profile page, those who use affiliate links to refer new users to the dYdX exchange will receive ongoing payments based on trading fees generated while new traders onboarded will earn a discount of 5% on trading fees. Revenue share will be settled every 28 days, matching the dYdX epoch schedule.
The revenue share % will be determined at the time of each calculation based on the affiliate’s $stkDYDX balance. Holding $stkDYDX will offer affiliates higher percentages of Trading Fees for those who use their affiliate link. Below is a table of fees earned based on the size of current holdings.
We hope that you are as excited about our new affiliate program as we are. Happy Trading!
