IDEX staking allows users to run specialized nodes that execute or manage specific functions related to IDEX. In return for helping decentralize various “tiers” of our product architecture, node operators are compensated 50% of trade fees in ether (ETH).
IDEX is expanding beyond Ethereum to operate on top of emerging layer-1 networks in an initiative called Multiverse. This expansion introduces new, independent native assets on the new blockchains that support the operation and receive 50% of the trade fees as compensation. To receive the new IDEX tokens, holders of the Ethereum-based IDEX tokens must participate in Community staking. In return for Community staking the whole duration, IDEX stakers will receive a 1 to 1 distribution of the new tokens.
