PulseX sacrificers will get a Volume Bonus Multiplier of up to 2.5x. Everyone’s Sacrifice is publicly viewable during the period by checking the public balances of the Sacrifice addresses list on each chain. This way you might know when you want to sacrifice some more to move up in the rankings.
How the Volume Bonus works
Imagine that each Sacrifice Point grows legs, puts on a shirt with his Sacrificer’s address on it and lines up in a big line out front of an auditorium.
The largest Sacrificer’s points line up first. Then the 2nd largest. They file in and fill up the rows from the front to the back. Now an attendant comes in, and starts handing out bonus cards. He goes down the rows, in the same order they entered, and hands everyone a card. When he’s done they see that the first card handed out is a 2.5x. Every card he handed out after was worth ever so slightly less till he got to the very back, where the last card was just barely more than 1x. The difference between each card and the next is always the same.
Now all the points stand up, and head to the changing room in the same order they entered the auditorium. The first point enters and out comes 2.5 points, all wearing the same Sacrificer’s address on their shirt. What does a half point look like you say? Fun sized is the answer. This continues until every Sacrificer’s points have all gotten the bonus they deserve. In math speak, it’s a linear bonding curve from 1x to 2.5x.
The top guy’s coins took up the most space and in the best location. The next guys points took up the 2nd most space and in the 2nd best location. And so forth. If someone adds to their Sacrifice, overtaking you before the end, your Sacrifice Points get pushed further down the bonus ranking.
The last 5 days
February 21st – 25th will have the worst rate and won’t get a variable Volume Bonus. Instead every Sacrifice on the last 5 days will get a flat 1.75x Bonus.
