Waves.Exchange launches a market maker program enabling users to mine with their liquidity

As Waves.Exchange continues to grow, we would like to accelerate the growth by attracting more liquidity to USDN markets and enabling market makers to collect additional profits.

Therefore, we are excited to announce the launch of a market maker program. We will also reward market makers with a percentage of their liquidity volumes and compensate for rewards they are missing while not staking their USDN.

Participation rules

To qualify for participation you should follow these rules:

This is the minimum cumulative liquidity size required for participants’ orders from each side.

3. Bid/Offer Spread: 1%. A participant must open at least one Ask and one Bid order. (MaxAsk.price — MinBid.price) / (0.5*(MaxAsk.price + MinBid.price)) <= required_spread(0.01). The number of open orders is not limited and should be greater or equal to 1 on each side.

4. Qualifying Percentage: Support orders 50% of time, i.e. participants must hold their orders for at least 12 hours a day.

5. Only those matches qualify that occur in 5 seconds after opening an order. For example, if an order is matched in 3 seconds and then cancelled in 4 seconds, it will not be considered within the total traded volume.

6. Participants are prohibited from trading with themselves.

An example of how it works:

Consider the pair WAVES/USDN. Suppose a participant opens Ask for 11,500 WAVES at the WAVES rate of 1.65 USDN. The same participant opens Bid for 11,500 WAVES at 1.6418 USDN.

The spread is 1%: (1.65–1.6418) / (0.5*(1.65 + 1.6418)) = 0.004982077 < 0.01

The cumulative min. size (each side) = 11,500 WAVES

Therefore, the participant fulfilled the requirements and qualified to be rewarded.


Suppose a participant opens Bid and Ask orders with 20,000 USDN on each side. During the week, his total traded volume was 300,000 USDN and his average weekly balance was 30,000 USDN. Then, in a week, the participant receives a 300 USDN reward for volumes and another 70 USDN as a staking reward compensation.

Please keep in mind that Waves.Exchange charges a flat fee of 0.003 WAVES on each order.
