The procedure of calculating monthly rewards

Per eToro, transparency towards its users is key in its operations. As such, the exchange provided a detailed explanation of how it calculates the monthly rewards for each user. This process involves the system capturing a daily snapshot of each users’ holdings at 00.00 UTC. Allegedly, this step helps show a user’s eligible staking units for all open positions.

At the end of each month, the system divides the total of the month’s snapshots by the number of days in the month to obtain an average daily amount. Afterwards, the system uses the average daily amount as the basic amount through which it calculates the monthly reward. After this, the exchange calculates the monthly yield percentage and then adds it to the applicable club member percentage. The exchange then pays out the reward provided it is above £0.77.
