Get ready for battle — #JoinTheHerd season 3 is now live! We’ve rebalanced the formula so as to reward the most engaged members of the Herd, as well as our best ambassadors. Traffic and referral points are now at the core of the formula, while SDT and NFTs will boost your score.

No referral, no points. Play by the rules, or get rekt.

Game on!

Start: 26/11

End: 10/12

How do I get started and participate?

Step 1

Click on the following link:

Log in to Stake DAO using your email, Ledger, Metamask, or WalletConnect.

Step 2

Make sure you are logged into your Twitter account on your device.

Make sure you haven’t protected your tweets (click on the “more” button on the bottom left-hand corner of your account → click on “privacy and safety” tab → click on “audience and tagging” tab → unclick “protect your tweets)

Click on “Send Tweet.’’

A Twitter page will open and create a tweet for you. We kindly ask that you don’t modify the text here, as any other format will fail to be verified.

Tweet it. This will be the tweet to verify you, not your referral code! (This will come later!)

Step 3

Once you’ve tweeted, click on the tweet to open its web page and copy the link in the search bar of your browser.

What you have copied will look something like this:[your twitter handle]/status/[1234567891011]

Paste the URL into the box below “Tweet URL’’ and press submit.

After a few seconds, your profile and referral link will appear!

You can now share your referral code with your friends by clicking on the button to the right of your unique webpage. It will look like this:[your twitter handle]

New Point calculation :

For this season, we’ve put back referral and traffic points at the core of the calculation, whereas xSDT and NFT are now points boosters:

(Referral Points + Traffic Points)*xSDTWeight* NFTBoost

  • xSDT Weight: Depending on the number of xSDT you have, both on Ethereum (Palace & Sanctuary) and Polygon, you’ll get a boost in your point calculation.
  • Traffic points: every time you recruit new users via a click from your link, you get 1 point!
  • Referral points: every time users click on your link AND create a referral code for themselves by following the steps above, you get 10 points!
  • NFT Boost: what matters the most is the value of your rarest NFT.

NFT Boost = Base Boost of the rarer NFT owned + 0.05 * (Number of NFTs owned-1)

Base boost:

  • No NFT: x1.0
  • Common: x1.1
  • Rare: x1.2
  • Unique: x1.35

Additional boost: +0.05 for every other NFT owned

Referral simulator :

Use the simulator to estimate the prize you’ll get depending on the number of Referral and Traffic points you think you can accumulate.

New Prizes

The rewards are as follows:

  • 1st place: $1000
  • 2nd place: $750
  • 3rd place: $500

  • 10th place: $110

These rewards will be distributed in sdam3crv tokens (stablecoins) on Polygon — winners will have to claim their rewards from the Referral page.

When does the Stake DAO Herd Referral Competition run until?
