Dear KuCoin Users,

As the People's Exchange, KuCoin has focused on fulfilling our mission to bring more value to our users. To maximize the benefits for users holding Cosmos (ATOM) on the platform, KuCoin has launched the ATOM Soft Staking Program (hereinafter referred to as the "Program").

Eligibility and Starting Time: The Soft Staking Investment Strategy Service (hereinafter referred to as the "Service") is available to all KuCoin users, and the service will begin from July 4, 2019 (UTC+8).

Participation: All ATOM users are deemed to have agreed to the Service and authorized KuCoin to make use of their respective ATOM assets on behalf of them for Cosmos mainnet staking. KuCoin will adjust the staking proportion based on the total amount of token value and the withdrawal records of the platform wallet each calendar day. In order to service the best interest of our users, KuCoin will do its utmost in assisting our users to seek the maximum profit in the Cosmos mainnet staking process with the objective to not affecting ATOM token withdrawal. All the revenue generated will be distributed to users accordingly. As a general rule, users are able to withdraw their respective ATOM assets at any time without terminating the staking. The detailed rules are as follows:

  1. KuCoin will adjust the staking proportion of ATOM every calendar day and calculate the daily revenue of the users according to the snapshots of the ATOM amount held by users at 23:59:59 (UTC+8) each calendar day. The daily revenue will be distributed the next day. Users are able to check their revenue return at "My Bonus".
  2. Users will receive revenue only when the amount of the ATOM revenue is above 0.000001.
  3. Users have to take note that due to the participation of the Program, there will be a potential risk that a user may not be able to withdraw his/her designated ATOM in a timely manner or as he/she so expected although KuCoin will use its best efforts to avoid such inevitably delay. In order to ensure the smooth withdrawal process of ATOM, users who wish to withdraw their respective ATOM assets shall have to follow the withdrawal sequence.

A Separate Project: The Service provided by KuCoin herein will only affect the ATOM withdrawal, and will not directly or indirectly affect: (1) the trading of ATOM assets on our platform; and (2) the trading or withdrawal of any other digital asset on our platform. As such, in the event that any user is reluctant to follow the withdrawal sequence but are already lined up in the withdrawal queue, the said user may choose to exchange ATOM with other tokens, and withdraw the exchanged tokens immediately.

Withdrawal Sequence: The ATOM assets are securely stored on KuCoin. The withdrawal of ATOM will be strictly processed based on the queue up sequence and queue jumping or fraud operations will be strictly prohibited.
