Strategy Incentives

What Are Strategy Incentives?

Jones retains incentives from strategies to power retention mechanisms and promote sustainability, while boosting yield for long-term depositors.
The protocol applies different incentives depending on the selected strategy.

Protocol Incentives*

Strategy
Action Performed
Incentive
Details
jGLP
Earn Yield
0%
jGLP vault users will earn ETH yield from base GLP, plus the ETH yield from leverage. Since esGMX is non-transferrable, any esGMX earned will not accrue to users.
jGLP
Withdraw
3%
jGLP users incur an incentive upon withdrawal of 3%. 1% goes back to the vault as extra yield and 2% goes to the protocol for providing the vault.
jGLP
Autocompound
2%
jGLP tokens are autocompounding wrapper tokens. 2% of autocompounding yield flows to the protocol for enabling this mechanism.
jUSDC
Withdraw
0.97% (less GMX incentive to redeem USDC)
jUSDC users incur an incentive upon withdrawal of 0.97%. The amount of incentive is determined by: 0.97% - GMX redemption incentive. When there is enough USDC in jUSDC to cover withdrawal requests, the max incentive applies. When GMX incentives > 0.97%, there is no retention incentive.
jUSDC
Autocompound
0%
jUSDC tokens are autocompounding wrapper tokens. None of the autocompounding yield flows to the protocol for enabling this mechanism.
Borrowed GLP
Acquire Leverage
20%
This incentive is retained from the amount of GLP backing jUSDC. It does not come from the yield end users receive from jUSDC.
*These incentives (and the related yields) are governed by upgradable smart contracts that are controlled by Jones DAO. Access to the tokens and products described herein may be denied based on the location, residency or citizenship of any person.

GMX Incentives

Details
jGLP
Deposit Collateral to Acquire GLP
0.25%*
This incentive is applied by GMX for the creation of new GLP tokens when a user deposits collateral other than GLP into the vault.
jGLP
Create GLP Leverage
0.25%*
This incentive is for minting new GLP from GMX when acquiring leverage.
jGLP
Deleverage GLP
0.25%*
This incentive is applied by GMX for the burning of GLP.
jGLP
Withdraw
0.25%*
This incentive is applied by GMX for the withdrawal of tokens other than GLP upon deleverage.
jUSDC
Withdraw
0.00 - 0.25%*
GMX charges an additional incentive to burn GLP and mint USDC. Liquidity for withdrawals is first sourced from any USDC that has not been used to mint GLP, avoiding this incentive. If there is no available USDC, further withdrawals will require burning of GLP and minting of USDC.
*Figures marked with an asterisk will vary based on differences in GMX platform incentives. The 25 bps shown in this chart represents a normalized incentive based on current data. Please note that these are GMX platform incentives, and are not controlled by Jones DAO or its affiliates. The GMX platform incentives may change at any time.
Incentive structure is subject to change without prior notice.

jAURA
Withdraw
3%
jAURA users incur an incentive upon withdrawal of 3%. 1% goes back to the vault as extra yield and 2% goes to the protocol for providing the vault.
jAURA
Rehypothecation
7.5%
5% goes to the wjAURA vault and 2% goes to the protocol. For information on rehypothecation, click here.

Unlike the other vaults, STIP farms for Jones strategies take retention incentives at time of deposit.
We chose this method because, unlike withdrawal incentives, it allows lenders to properly collect rewards for borrowers.
*NOTE - These incentives do not flow back to the vaults as retention yield.

Retention Mechanism

The Jones retention mechanism is built to support long-term holders. When strategy users withdraw from the vaults, they incur a withdrawal incentive. This withdrawal incentive is then routed back to the vaults and distributed to remaining holders as bonus yield. The amount of incentives that are sent back to the vault varies between each strategy.
You can find the amounts depicted in the tables above.
Through this mechanism, Jones is able to align users to the protocol by rewarding those who utilize the vaults for longer time periods.
