GFI Tier benefits will vary between the Gravity products and for the most part will be access related. This means you would need to hold a specific tier to gain access to that product. As an example some vaults will be exclusive to certain GFI tiers (or higher). These vaults may offer performance fee discounts and/or exclusive vault strategies.
To obtain a GFI Tier status, the following criteria applies:
Tier 1: 50,000 GFI or equivalent holdings in an Approved Gravity Smart Contract.
Tier 2: 250,000 GFI or equivalent holdings in an Approved Gravity Smart Contract.
Tier 3: 500,000 GFI or equivalent holdings in an Approved Gravity Smart Contract.
An “Approved Gravity Smart Contract” can consist of Exchange Liquidity Pools (LPs), Vaults and other future products. See the table below for the a list of contracts.
If you are depositing your GFI into an approved smart contract, you must deposit it directly from your wallet. If you are depositing into a third party smart contract such as an Adamant Vault, those GFI DO NOT contribute towards your eligibility.
Farms are not included in the eligibility test, however farming vaults (compounders) can be.
GFI holdings in your personal wallet and approved smart contracts are combined to determine your tier.
If you hold a T2 or T3, you can access all of the benefits of the lower tiers.
Special Events Eligibility (IDOs etc) and Benefits
To be eligible for exclusive special events (like IDO pools) the criteria is very similar to the “General Eligibility” however it is determined by a snapshot at a specific block (to prevent gaming the system).
The one specific difference is that GFI held in your personal wallet is not included in the eligibility test and only specific contract types are considered.
The benefits offered for each IDO will vary and will be announced prior to each IDO.
