Kelp Miles & EigenLayer Points

Kelp Miles will help us understand their contribution to Kelp and define the proportion of distributing rewards later.

Kelp Miles = (Amount of rsETH)*Number of days*10,000

Kelp Carnival - 2nd Feb'24 to 9th Feb'24

Starting 02 Feb, 12 PM PT, the top 5 restakers for each LST daily will be eligible for a 2x bonus i.e. 200k Kelp Miles per rsETH minted. This will be over and above the regular Miles they stand to get. This campaign will be live for 7 days, between 02 Feb to 09 Feb, 12 pm PT.

5 (stETH) + 5 (sfrxETH) + 5 (ETHx) = 15 daily winners

15 (daily winners) x 7 (days) = 105 carnival winners

In addition to this, there is a special reward.

Kelp Super Troopers: Top 5 restakers with maximum deposit amount across 7 days, across assets get a 3x bonus on Kelp Miles (300k Miles per rsETH minted).

Winners of the Kelp Carnival can be tracked on this dune dashboard:

The bonus Kelp Miles will be allocated to the winners before 15th Feb.

EigenLayer Restaked Points

All the users who successfully restake with Kelp before the deposit caps on EigenLayer close are eligible to receive the EL Restaked Points.

The Restaked Points will be distributed at individual levels proportionate to the amount of LST deposited.

Please note: Assets restaked on Kelp are deposited into EigenLayer at a set frequency. There will be a small time gap between assets getting deposited on Kelp and Kelp depositing those assets on EigenLayer.

So, EL points are normalized for all the deposits at the time of daily snapshots. Due to this, there could be a small difference between ideal and actual EL points received by users. The Kelp DAO team is working to increase the frequency of the deposits to ensure the offset due to normalization is minimal.
