    Mining Details

    • Trading as Mining

    Mines approximately 60% of daily released VX. Currently, users are able to trade in four markets: BTC, ETH, VITE and USDT and receive VX rewards accordingly.
    Allocation: As mentioned above, ViteX is currently divided into four different markets: BTC, ETH, VITE and USDT. By trading in these markets, users are able to receive VX mining rewards. Each market will receive 15% of daily distributed VX.
    How to participate: By executing trades on eligible trading pairs and paying the corresponding trading fees, users mine VX (Trading as Mining).
    Mining reward calculation: VX rewards are calculated based on the proportion of a user's daily accumulated trading fee to the total accumulated fees in each market. For example, for a given day, if a trader accumulates 5% of the total BTC market trading fees, then that trader will receive 5% of the 15% of VX rewards allocated to the BTC market.

    • Staking as Mining

    By staking VITE to help ViteX obtain operational quota, users receive VX rewards.
    Allocation: 20% of daily released VX
    How to participate: stake VITE with the beneficiary set to the ViteX smart contract
    Staking amount: the minimum amount of VITE that users can stake is 134 VITE. There is no maximum cap.
    Staking duration: Stakes can be retrieved after 3 days. There is no maximum number of days for staking VITE. There will be a retrieving period of 7 days, and stakes will not be counted towards staking as mining rewards during this period.
    Mining reward calculation : the amount of VX rewards will be calculated based on the proportion of VITE staked by a user's account to the total amount of VITE staked that day.

    • Market-making as Mining

    Mines 10% of daily released VX; BTC market at 5%, ETH and VITE market equally at 1.5%, USDT market at 2%.
    Placing orders on ViteX will also earn users VX rewards. The amount of VX earned depends on three factors: 1) the amount of order, 2) the amount of time your order remains on the order book, and 3) the amount of deviation from the best bid and best offer in the order book spread.
    Allocation: 10% of daily released VX. BTC market at 5%, ETH and VITE market equally at 1.5%, USDT market at 2%.
    How to participate:
    Only eligible trading pairs will be considered for market-making as mining rewards
    Both buy and sell orders are considered for market-making as mining rewards
    Orders must not deviate from the designated mining range in the order book
    Mining reward calculation:
    The VX mining reward for market-making has a linear relationship with the order amount and order duration (i.e. amount of time the pending order stays on the order book). However, the mining reward has an exponential relationship with the order distance (i.e. the deviation from the best bid offer).

    For example, if Alice and Bob both place two separate orders for the same amount of token X. Both orders remain on the order book for the same amount of time. However, Alice prices her order on level 1 (i.e., extremely close to the best bid offer) and Bob prices his order on level 10 (i.e. further away from the best bid offer), the mining reward for Alice will be 100 times that of Bob's. This system is designed to incentive users to place orders as close to the best bid offer as possible.

    • Referring as Mining

    User can request invitation codes to invite friends to join the ViteX platform.
    Inviter will be rewarded with 5% of all invitees’ trading as mining proceeds and 2.5% of their market making as mining proceeds.

    • Listing as Mining (Operators Only)

    For each trading pair listed, the issuer’s VX reward is then calculated as if he/she executed a trade involving a transaction fee of 1,000 VITE.
    Operators can list trading pairs, customize transaction fees, and generate profits from users that choose to trade on their Zone.

    ViteX Operator Guide
    Operator Rights
    Token Ownership Rights
    By default, the token ownership rights belong to the Issuer. However, the Issuer can transfer the rights to their token to a third party. Once they do so, the third party has full access to the token and can list trading pairs.
    Listing Trading Pairs
    Only the token owner can list trading pairs involving the token he or she owns. In the case of ViteX, only BTC/ETH/USDT/VITE trading pairs can be listed. Attempting to open trading pairs to other cryptocurrencies will be rejected.
    Note: A cost of 10,000 VITE is required to open a trading pair.
    Transferring Token Ownership
    Token ownership can be transferred. The transfer of token ownership is irreversible.
    Token Trading Rights
    If an Issuer does not want to fully transfer the rights to his or her token, the Issuer can choose to transfer the Token Trading Rights instead. For example, the Issuer can first list a trading pair (i.e. Token A / BTC) and transfer the rights to this specific trading pair to a third party. In this case, the third party now has the right to the Token A / BTC pair — they cannot open additional trading pairs to other cryptocurrencies but can transfer their Token A / BTC right to another party should they wish to.
    Setting Transaction Fee
    Operators have the right to set an additional transaction fee (on top of the Base Transaction Fee) of 0 - 0.2%. Operators also reserve the right to adjust these fees.
    Trade Suspension
    The Operator reserve the right to suspend a trading pair. After they do so, the user cannot place orders involving the given trading pair but can withdraw the order if they already had one in place.
    Transferring Token Trading Right
    Token trading right can be transferred. The new owner will become the Operator of the trading pair. This operation is irreversible.

    The token ownership right and token trading right are two independent sets of rights.

    For example, Alice is the Issuer of Token A, so by default, she has the token ownership right to Token A. At the moment, only Alice can open trading pairs involving Token A. Now, Alice decides to open a trading pair: Token A / BTC. Now, she has two"sets" of rights: 1) Ownership of Token A and 2) Token A / BTC Trading.

    If Alice transfer the right of Token A / BTC to Bob, Alice now no longer has the right to list Token A / BTC pair. The transfer of trading rights to Bob is irreversible. However, since Alice still has the token A ownership rights, she decides to open another trading pair of Token A / ETH. Now, if Alice decides to transfer the Token A Ownership right to Charles, she permanently loses that right and can no longer open any additional trading pairs involving Token A. However, Alice still owns the Token A / ETH trading pair despite no longer having the Token A Ownership rights.

    Transaction Fee Formula

    For all transactions on ViteX, incomplete orders do not incur any trading fees.
    Total Transaction Fee = Base Transaction Fee + Operator Zone Fee
    Unlike other DEXes, ViteX does not charge fees for pending orders and withdrawals provided that users have the requisite amount of quota. Related documentation: What is quota.
    Base Transaction Fee: 0.2%
    This transaction fee will be applied to all trading pairs in the ViteX ecosystem. All the fees collected from this will be put into the shared dividend pool to be redistributed back to VX holders.
    Operator Zone Fee: 0 - 0.2%
    This is the fee that will be set by ViteX Operators for their respective Zones. Operators may set fees ranging from 0% to 0.2%. Proceeds from this fee belong to the Operators.
    Reducing Transaction Fees

    • Stake 10,000 VITE to become a VIP and receive 50% off basic trading fees
      (Minimum Staking Duration: 30 days)
    • Use a Referral Code and receive 10% off trading fees
      (Refer to Referring as Mining section for details)

    Note: For any VIP user using a referral code, another 10% will be taken off incurred trading fees after the 50% reduction.
