Referral Program

The API3 referral scheme has been created to harness the potential of our robust ecosystem and community partners to support the growth objectives of the DAO.


At the heart of API3's success is a collaborative network of contributors, clients, and influencers, each playing a pivotal role in expanding the reach and impact of API3's oracle technology. API3 DAO seeks to incentivize the growth of dAPIs by introducing a referral scheme. This program rewards affiliates for successfully introducing a DeFi protocol that leads to an integration of a dAPI price feed.

How does the referral scheme work?

  1. Introduction to a qualified dApp: $500 API3

  2. Integration of qualified dApp: $2500 API3

An introduction to a dApp is defined as an introduction to a decision maker withing a DeFi protocol that meets the below qualification. A dAPI Integration is defined as a DeFi protocol that is reading a dAPI within their contracts and can be verified on-chain.

For a dApp to qualify they will need to be:
