What is Staking Incentives?
Based on the design and mechanism of coin yielding (Interest), CoinEx takes a snapshot (for statistics) of all holders of the specific coins/tokens on a monthly basis, and rewards the holder with the interest of the coin/token for their period of holdings. These interests will be credited to the accounts which are also known as Staking Incentives (e.g. Hold VET and get VTHO).
How to get staking incentives?

How are staking incentives calculated?
Take VET for example: Staking incentives are accumulated on a daily basis, and allocated to the account monthly;
User daily distributed VET = Daily accumulated VET received by CoinEx * User VET holdings ratio
User VTHO holdings ratio = Daily VTHO staked by User / total VTHO staked by CoinEx
Why didn’t I receive staking incentives when I hold the yielding coin?
1. The stakings can only be calculated when they reach the minimum amount of the placed order. As of now: 1000 VET; 0.1 NEO.
2. Currently, CoinEx will only take a snapshot of the balance of Spot Account, so if the yielding coin is transferred to Margin/Futures/Option/Contract Account, it will not be calculated thus the account will not be qualified for staking incentives.
Can I trade/withdraw staking incentives after receiving them?
