Trust Exchange Contribute to Earn Reward Summary

in #saaslast year (edited)


Today, the business information industry has several key problems that make the information they provide less than useful for critical aspects of business interactions. Two key issues are centralized data creation and centralized data validation. Currently, business information providers centralize and standardize “business data” by controlling the creation and validation of this information utilizing the antiquated bureau system. Similar to news agencies, information bureaus were designed to collect, verify and distribute information.

Like news agencies, information bureaus are challenged by advances in technology, inability to scale and the rate of change in the modern world. In short, they are still driving taxis in an uber world. They’re a closed system, focused on financial information and capture most of the value exchange centrally.

Trust Exchange has created a platform that can solve this problem. We enable participants to create their own information network, connect individuals, organizations and companies to collaborate in the creation and validation of mission critical information. To learn more about our plan and current functionality, you can visit

What follows is the current plan on distributing value throughout the network appropriately to all participants: information requestors, creators and validators.


Reward Distribution Summary

As described in the Trust Exchange Whitepaper participants in the network can earn rewards by contributing data to the platform. Trust Exchange has allocated 1.5 Billion TREX tokens to the reward pool for the purpose of incentivizing contributions to the platform in the form of data creation or data validation. TREX will be distributed daily to all participants based on their role in the network, active contributions and bonus rewards offered by requesters or Trust Exchange. Two types of rewards will be distributed: System Rewards and Bonus Rewards.

System Rewards

Token Reward Pool Allocations

We have set aside 1.5 Billion tokens for the daily reward pool. This total amount will be distributed to participants during the life of the project.

Yearly Allocations

During the first year of operation, 20% of the lifetime total (300 Million TREX) will be distributed to participants. The reward pool will be halved each subsequent year for the entire life of the project. Here is a breakdown of yearly allocations:

Year 1: 300M TREX
Year 2: 150M TREX
Year 3: 75M TREX
Year 4: 37.5M TREX
Year 5: 18.75M TREX

And so on until the lifetime total is fully distributed.

Each day, participants will receive their allocation of system rewards which will be calculated as follows:
System Rewards = Participation Reward + Contribution Reward

Participation rewards will be 10% of the total daily reward/number of participants (individuals or organizations holding Certificate Tokens (NFTs)

Contribution rewards will be a formulaic reward that distributes 90% of the daily rewards to participants based on their weighted contributions to the network. The formula can be modified in the Trust Exchange application layer to incentivize data creation, validation or manage the tokenomics.

Bonus rewards will be variable each day and will consist of third party rewards/bonuses and Trust Exchange rewards and bonuses. For example, Trust Exchange clients can provide additional bonuses for data they may need. A bank may provide bonuses for specific restaurants in order to prove that they are open and operating. A contributor would earn those by validating the restaurant is open and perhaps uploading a copy of their check or credit card receipt.

Total System rewards would be the sum of System Rewards plus Bonus Rewards. In the above example a contributor might earn the following total rewards:

Total = Participation rewards (Bronze Curator + Gold Validator) + Contribution Rewards + Contribution Bonus (from Trust Exchange Client)
