With the beta launch of ApeX Pro, we are thrilled to announce the platform’s very first Retroactive Airdrop, where we’ll be sharing a pool of 1,500,000 esAPEX in rewards with professional traders and KOLs in the community!

Campaign Period

Beta Launch: Sept. 1, 2022

Mainnet Launch: To be confirmed — mainnet launch date may be adjusted depending on feedback from the Beta Launch period

ApeX Pro is almost ready to deliver limitless access to the perpetual swap market. The wait is over as traders, both existing and new, plus KOLs have a chance to claim their esAPEX tokens from this airdrop, as long as they make the cut.

➡️ 500,000 APEX: Open to KOLs

Be a part of the ApeX Pro content creation drive, where you can earn esAPEX for the content you create and share with your community of followers!

Step 1: Beta Launch Phase — Try Out Beta & Create Content

From Sept. 1, 2022 until the mainnet launches, here’s your chance to try the brand new ApeX Pro out during our public beta!

Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the ins-and-outs of the trading platform, it’s time for a review. Create at least two (2) videos and/or a Twitter thread comprising three (3) to five (5) tweets over the course of the 2-week period (do not forget to share with your community the ongoing Professional Trader campaign discussed below). Once done, reach out to the ApeX Pro team for any support you require. Don’t forget to also get the team’s approval for your content prior to sharing your content!

Step 2: Mainnet Phase — Deposit, Trade & Claim

You’ll be able to check if your created content is qualified for rewards once ApeX Pro is launched on mainnet. Then, all you need to do is deposit a minimum of $500 and record a trading volume of at least $1,000 before Dec. 19, 2022, to claim your tokens!

*You can deposit in any preferred crypto asset and trade on any available contracts on ApeX Pro. If participants reach the last tier of rewards, they will get access to all prize pool tiers.

The more you deposit, the larger the prize pool you’ll unlock and the more you’ll receive! The prize pool(s) are equally split amongst all the KOLs who qualify for each corresponding tier.

For example, if participant A deposits $1,600 and accumulates $4,000 in trades on ApeX Pro, they will get access to the 250,000 (100,000 from Tier 1 and 150,000 from Tier 2 combined) esAPEX airdrop pool. Assuming there are 15 qualified traders that reach Tier 1 and 10 qualified traders that reach Tier 2:

Participant A’s Final Reward: (100,000/15) + (150,000/10) = 21,667 esAPEX

➡️ 1,000,000 APEX: Open to Professional Traders

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been with ApeX Protocol from the start since its launch with ApeX eAMM, or haven’t gotten up to speed with ApeX Pro just yet, you’re eligible to join the airdrop event if you fall into any of the categories below:

If you do belong to any of the categories above, you’re only two steps away from your airdrop reward!

Deposit, Trade & Claim When ApeX Pro Mainnet Launches!

Once the mainnet launches, all you need to do is deposit and trade on ApeX Pro before Dec. 19, 2022, to earn and claim up to 1,000 esAPEX per address.

*You can deposit in any preferred crypto asset and trade on any available contracts on ApeX Pro. Participants will only be able to claim one reward based on their final and accumulated deposit and trading amounts.

Participating traders will be able to check if they are qualified for rewards once the mainnet launches.
