What are the benefits of the ABLMP for our ecosystem and our partners?

The AllianceBlock Liquidity Mining Partnership was designed to bring the communities of AllianceBlock and our partners closer, create a direct economic link between both projects, and build a strong foundation for future innovative technological collaboration. The program is open to all of our partners and is designed to empower both ecosystems and bring the following benefits:

Economics and Utility — Participation in ABLMP provides increased utility to participating projects and their tokens, and stimulates and provides additional liquidity to the open market. The increased presence and interest of buyers and sellers will positively impact trading volumes and tighten buy-sell spreads, increased liquidity will drastically decrease the slippage on secondary marketplaces and make them more efficient.

Community and Promotion — Introduction of joint liquidity mining solution provides direct economical and societal ties between the projects, bringing both communities together and allowing them to explore the innovative products and solutions developed by participating parties.

Cooperation and Partnership — Increased liquidity and community outreach allows both projects to efficiently integrate each other’s products and services into their respective ecosystems and build more robust solutions. The joint Liquidity Mining program acts as a strong symbol of commitment for future cooperation and intention to jointly innovate, grow, and succeed in the demanding and ever-changing landscape of Digital Assets.

What are the benefits of the ABLMP for token holders?

Apart from the aforementioned advantages of the introduction of ABLMP to AllianceBlock’s and partners’ ecosystems that indirectly benefit all the token holders, such as increased liquidity, additional utility, better project visibility, and more efficient secondary markets, the ABLMP participants will be able to enjoy direct participation incentives in the form of dual liquidity mining rewards. This means that holders providing liquidity in our new multi-asset pools will receive LM rewards from both projects in the form of their tokens claimable via ABLM User Interface.

The reward that the individual miner is entitled to, is a function of two variables:

  • The share of the total liquidity pool the miner provides
  • The duration for which the miner has provided liquidity for

Meaning the longer the liquidity miner mines for, and the greater their share of the liquidity pool is, the greater share of the reward pool he will be entitled to. This model incentivizes early adopters as they will be able to mine liquidity for longer and with lower competition.
