To bootstrap and encourage liquidity for $PLOT, token holders who provide liquidity on the PLOT-ETH liquidity pool on Uniswap will be able to mine more $PLOT as rewards.
The liquidity mining program will run for a period of 1-month post Uniswap listing with 15,000 PLOT per day to be distributed as mining rewards each day to the liquidity providers. These PLOT rewards are over and above the Uniswap Fee which liquidity providers earn.
The motivation behind the PlotX Liquidity Mining program is three-fold:
It helps in bootstrapping token liquidity on Uniswap, leading to reduced volatility and a sustainable token growth
It helps a wider community to claim the tokens in a sensible, permissionless and predictable manner
It rewards PLOT Heads who directly contribute to the health of the $PLOT ecosystem
Here’s the flow:
Deposit ETH and PLOT into the PLOT-ETH liquidity pool on Uniswap. The address of the liquidity pool is: https://app.uniswap.org/#/add/ETH/0x72F020f8f3E8fd9382705723Cd26380f8D0c66Bb
Receive Uniswap V2 LP tokens of the liquidity pool.
Stake those LP Tokens in the PlotX Staking Smart Contract which will be accessible via the PlotX Liquidity Mining user interface.
And that's it!
Once you've staked the LP tokens, you can check the rewarded $PLOT using the PlotX Liquidity Mining user interface. You could even deposit more liquidity pool tokens or withdraw them whenever you want as there is no minimum vesting/lockup period.
Using the interface, you can also claim your $PLOTs instantly.
Rewards in $PLOT will be distributed every second in proportion to the LP tokens deposited by you and the total LP token deposits at that second.
For the first-month post mainnet launch, 15,000 PLOT will be distributed every day to the LP token depositors and after the first month, the Liquidity Mining program might be modified based on community feedback and suggestions.
15,000 $PLOT are allocated daily, which means ~0.1736 $PLOTs to be distributed every second [15000/(24*60*60)]
Now, if you have deposited 100 LP tokens and a total 1,000 LP tokens are deposited for a particular second, you own 10% of the pool in that second (100/1000)
This means, you can claim 10% of 0.1736 $PLOT which is 0.01736 $PLOT per second, equivalent to 1500 $PLOT per day or 45000 $PLOT over 30 days.
The formula for calculating APY is as follows: APY = Rewards to be distributed in 1 month * 12 / Worth of LP tokens deposited * 100%
The mined $PLOT are instantly claimable from the interface itself. The interesting part is that once claimed they can be used to provide even more liquidity, then increase participation in liquidity mining and ultimately mine even more $PLOT.
Also, note that depositing the LP tokens in the PlotX smart contracts does not stop you from earning the transaction fees on Uniswap.

No vesting/lockups. Rewards are distributed every second and are claimable anytime.
We hope this liquidity mining program distributes PLOT tokens into the hands of real users who are interested in participating in the PlotX protocol and its governance in the long-term.
Whenever you deposit liquidity into the DEXs (like Uniswap V2) you get a certain amount of tokens in exchange that represents your share of that pool (in this case PLOT/ETH pool). These tokens are called Liquidity Provider (LP) tokens or staking tokens or Uniswap-V2 LP tokens
After you get the LP tokens, you can hop on over to PlotX’s liquidity mining user interface (link TBA) to deposit those tokens for as long as you want with no minimum time and period restrictions.
The mined $PLOT are instantly claimable from the interface itself.
Yes. All benefits of the LP tokens (trading fees etc) are unchanged by participation in PlotX Liquidity Mining. The PlotX liquidity mining contracts simply hold the LP tokens for you and gives the ability to claim even more $PLOT tokens.
Uniswap incentivizes users to add liquidity to pools by rewarding providers with fees on trades. This activity, in general, is a complex one and has the risk of the participant also losing money (compared to just hodling) in the case of big directional moves of the underlying asset price which is traditionally called impermanent loss. It is recommended that all users are aware of the mechanics and the associated risks with this activity. You can read more about the associated risks here.
