Active Liquidity Incentives: Range Orders

200k ARB tokens will be used to incentivize traders that provide liquidity with Premia Blue’s Smart Range Orders.

The exact amount of individual rewards will be based on the volume traded, tightness of spread, and the pro-rata amount of Range Order liquidity provided within the most traded pools.

Partnerships (Options Liquidity Mining)

100k ARB tokens will be used to match Options Liquidity Mining for other Protocols that choose to launch an incentive plan (as available via stream).

Premia calls this suite the Hydraulic Solutions Framework. For Arbitrum-native projects that choose to launch an Options Liquidity Mining program on Premia, we are planning to further incentivize their contributions from this pool.

Premia Blue is the first non-custodial options settlement layer with fully customizable options parameters and risk exposure.
