FTT weekly Buy & Burn
FTT's supply is reduced gradually via a weekly repurchase and burning mechanism. FTX will be repurchasing and burning tokens equal to:
- 33% of fees generated on FTX markets
- 10% of net additions to the backstop fund ('Socialized Gains')
- 5% of fees earned from other uses of the FTX platform
FTX will buy FTT on its FTT/USD market. Bought FTT will be burned on a weekly basis in accordance with a schedule adopted by FTX. The current schedule typically starts at 10 pm SGT each Monday, with purchased tokens burned by 11:59 pm, SGT Tuesday. The above fees are less promotional discounts, payment processor fees, referral fees, and third-party costs associated with such revenue.
Staking FTT on FTX gives the following benefits:
- Increased referral rates: referrers that stake FTT are paid a higher fraction of their referees' fees
- Maker fee rebates: stakers get maker fee rebates (in addition to the standard FTT fee discounts)
- Free swag NFTs: stakers can spin the non-fungible swag wheel for a chance to win a free NFT, redeemable for FTX-themed swag, or resellable at the NFT marketplace.
- Bonus votes: stakers get bonus votes in our polls (in addition to the standard number of votes, based on FTT held and trading volume)
- Increased airdrop rewards: stakers get increased SRM airdrops (and potentially later other airdrops and yields)
