Rewards

Reward Calculation

Rewards will be calculated according to the compensation design described in this forum post and this spreadsheet.

Please also see section “2(f) Tour de Sol Details” of the TOUR DE SOL PARTICIPATION TERMS for additional rewards details.

Requirements to Receive Rewards

Participants must have signed the Tour de SOL participation agreement, passed KYC/AML as an individual via CoinList’s platform, as well as filled out the W-8 BEN or W-9 tax form (depending on your residency) prior to participating in the Tour. A participant may participate in any and all stages that begin after they complete registration. The final registrations dates will be announced publicly on a stage-by-stage basis.

Lastly, participants must sign Solana’s standard Token Agreement. The Token Agreement will be made available by Solana prior to the rewards issuance date.

Please also see sections “2(i) & 2(j) Tour de Sol Details” of the TOUR DE SOL PARTICIPATION TERMS for additional details related to receiving rewards.

Tax Implications

Participants are entering into a service agreement with Solana with discretionary compensation associated with the services. They are not considered to be a full-time employee of the company and therefore Solana is collecting W-9 and W-8 BEN forms in order to support tax reporting obligations, if applicable. Solana recommends participants consult with a tax accountant to understand any potential tax implications.
