Users can unlock negative maker fees by holding more than 300,000 SWTH in Switcheo Chest (If running), or your contract balance and maintaining a 30-day trading volume of over 10,000 USD.

Event period: 19th February 2020 to 30th June 2020

The negative fee will be credited as a rebate in SWTH and can be traded or withdrawn after 6 months. Users can track their accrued rebates in their Switcheo Portfolio.

How to unlock negative fees:

Step 1: Login and deposit SWTH into your contract balance
Step 2: Lock up SWTH in Switcheo Chest (if event is currently available)
Step 3: Place maker orders as per normal! Hodl more SWTH and trade more to progress to higher tiers for better rewards.

Here is a breakdown of our fee structure after applying the fee rebate:

Note that taker fees are not reflected as the Tiered Trading Fee Discount Program is independent of the Negative Fees Program. 

In order to prevent abuse and wash trading, maker orders will attract rebates only after being open for 15 seconds and will accrue evenly on a per-second basis over 45 seconds. This means that the full rebate will be earned only if the order is filled after 60 seconds from the time it was successfully placed.

Example A:
Maker is a user who qualifies for Tier 3.

Example B:
Maker is a user who qualifies for Tier 5.

Example C:
Maker is a user who qualifies for Tier 8
