Quant trading strategy providers define their own terms in customizable trading smart contracts. They tell Bincentive members the duration of time they will provide their automatic trading services and how much they expect to be compensated for their services. Bincentive supports both pre-pay flat rates and post-pay profit sharing. If an expert trader chooses the latter option, the trading reward deposit shall be transferred from the subscribing member’s account to an Escrow account within the trading smart contract. Trading reward payment will remain in Escrow until the terms of the contract are met. When the smart contract reaches the end of its duration, trading reward payment is automatically triggered and the agreed upon amount is released from the Escrow to the respective parties.
Note that fees can be higher if a strategy's performance exceeds expectation. In this case, the system will activate a stake call for the member to deposit more reward tokens. Similarly, if the predicted fees surpass the actual calculated amount, members will be refunded the difference. If members do not make any profit, fees transferred to Escrow will be returned in full.
