Filled order volume vs. reward pool

While liquidity mining does not compensate miners for filled order volume, the increased liquidity and order book depth created by miners does translate into increased trading efficiency and, consequently, additional trading volume. Trading volume is important for issuers since exchanges typically use traded volume as a benchmark to decide whether or not to maintain or remove token listings.

Note: Liquidity mining does not reward for filled order volume nor does it guarantee a certain amount of filled order volume. The above figures are based on historical data from currently running and historical liquidity mining campaigns.
