Reward Rules

Zenlink SlotVault will provide ZLK as an additional incentive for users who participate in the crowdloan of our supported projects (Manta Network/Clover Finance/ChainX/Crust Network).

The ZLK incentives involved in SlotVault take the slot auction batches of Kusama/Polkadot as the cycle and are divided into four categories based on the amount of crowdloan. In the case of successful bidding for slots for a parachain project supported by Zenlink, the rewards for each category are as follows:

  • The first category: the total amount of crowdloan < 1,000 KSM. If the total amount of crowdloan participating in the project through SlotVault is less than the minimum incentive threshold of 1,000 KSM, then the user will not be able to get any ZLK reward.

  • The second category: 1,000 KSM ≤ total amount of crowdloan< 5,000 KSM. If the total amount of crowdloan participating in the project through SlotVault is greater than or equal to 1,000 KSM and less than 5,000 KSM, then each KSM will be rewarded with 3 ZLK.

  • The third category: 5,000 KSM ≤ total amount of crowdloan < 25,000 KSM. If the total amount of crowdloan participating in the project through SlotVault is greater than or equal to 5,000 KSM and less than 25,000 KSM, then each KSM will be rewarded with 4 ZLK.

  • The fourth category: the total amount of crowdloan ≥ 25,000 KSM. If the total amount of crowdloan participating in the project through SlotVault is greater than or equal to 25,000 KSM, then a contributor’s reward is determined based on that individual’s proportional contribution to the total number of KSM tokens in the crowdloan at auction close, for example, Your ZLK Rewards = (Your KSM Contribution From SlotVault/Total KSM Contributions From SlotVault) * 150,000 ZLK.


  • The above rules are for a single parachain project rather than all parachain projects.

  • If the SlotVault supported project fails to secure the slots, as long as the total amount of crowdloan for the project through SlotVault participation is greater than or equal to 1000 KSM to make each KSM receive a ZLK reward; otherwise, there is no ZLK award.

  • Reward release rule: 50% will be released immediately when Zenlink DEX DApp goes live and the current round of slot auctions ends, and the remaining 50% will need to be unlocked in the first month of ZLK launch after your Zenlink DEX DApp transaction volume reaches $1,000 or the injected liquidity exceeds $5,000. The unlocking time is one month from the date of the ZLK launch.

Take Calamari Network, the leading network of Manta Network, as an example. The expected incentive for users to vote for Calamari Network through SlotVault is 1 KSM = 10000 KMA + x ZLK (the KMA incentive rule comes from the official release of Manta Network). If the final Calamari Network succeeds in bidding for the slot, and the crowdloan amount of the user participating in the project through SlotVault is greater than or equal to 5,000 KSM and less than 25,000 KSM, the corresponding ZLK award quantity is x=4.

Calamari (Manta) incentive mechanism

Calamari Network is the leading network of Manta Network, a privacy-focused project building on Polkadot.

After the successful auction, Calamari Network plans to provide on-chain privacy services for the entire Kusama DeFi network, and its early products include: privacy payment MariPay, privacy-focued decentralized AMM trading platform MariSwap and so on.

Parachain slot auction plan:

  • A maximum of 3 billion KMA will be awarded to KSM contributors, accounting for 30 per cent of the initial total supply of KMA. Calamari will use the ladder ceiling to design the award ceiling.

  • Each locked KSM supporting Calamari slot auction will receive a fixed 10,000 KMA as a reward. Users' rewards for KMA will not change with the total number of KSM that supports Calamari.

  • In addition, the top 1,000 contributors will receive additional KMA awards: the top 500 contributors will receive 10 percent additional awards; the top 501 to 1000 contributors will receive 5 percent additional awards.

Hard Facts:

  • Target slot: 6–10

  • Lease duration: 8 periods (maximum lease duration ~48 weeks)

  • Max. lockup target: 200 000 KSM

To participate in the crowdloan, you need to lock your KSM and vote for Kintsugi to become a parachain.

Crowdloan Airdrop: 10% (1 million KINT) of the initial 4-year KINT supply

To create a proactive crowdloan process, Kintsugi features the following special airdrops:
