Autumn is almost here under the sea, and we couldn’t be more excited. To celebrate the cozy fall weather (and the wonderful Orca community), we will be holding a special event: Orca’s first Fall Festival!
We have tons of new Aquafarms, Collectibles, and other surprises in store for you, all packed in between September 23rd and October 7th. Perhaps most importantly, we’ll be doubling ORCA rewards for this period from 300,000 ORCA to 600,000 ORCA per week and launching a number of new Double-Dip pools — that’s over $8 million in weekly rewards at the current price! To celebrate, all pools on Orca during this period will become Aquafarms and earn LPs ORCA rewards.
We’ve got a lot to cover in this article, so we’ll go through the events one by one. Let’s dive right in!
New Aquafarms and Double-Dip Pools
With over $300 million in total value locked in our pools, we’ve come a long way in a few short months since our launch in February! We’re always looking for new ways to reward Orca liquidity providers, and we’re premiering a brand new one during the Fall Festival: Double-Dip Pools.
Double-Dip Pools are built on top of our Aquafarms (farms where liquidity providers earn both ORCA tokens and trading fees as rewards), but kicked up another notch — LPs in these pools not only earn ORCA and trading fees, but also the native tokens of partner projects as well. Yes, you heard that correctly — these pools allow you to earn all three: fees, ORCA, and project tokens!
Our Double-Dip Pools will include:
ATLAS — USDC
POLIS — USDC
COPE — USDC
SLIM — USDC
SAMO — USDC
BOP — USDC
NINJA — SOL
HAPI — USDC
We’ll also be continuing the following Double-Dip pools:
LIQ — USDC
PORT — USDC
PAI — ORCA
pSOL — USDC
In addition, we’ve also launched several new standard pools for some of the most requested tokens on Solana, including:
SBR — USDC
GRAPE — USDC
SUNNY — USDC
Every pool on Orca during Fall Festival is an Aquafarm, earning LPs ORCA rewards. You can now deposit at orca.so/pools and rewards will begin today, September 23rd at 20:00 UTC. This is to ensure all of our community starts earning rewards at the same time!
ORCA and Collectible Rewards
Many community members have been asking for it, and it’s finally here. For a limited time, Orca Collectible holders will be able to stake their Collectibles to earn ORCA rewards!
Additionally, we’ll have a single-sided staking pool for ORCA tokens. This pool will also be incentivized with ORCA rewards. Stay tuned for a post outlining all the details and get excited for launch on Monday, September 27th!
Haven’t received an Orca Collectible yet? Don’t worry, we’ve got a great new opportunity for you to take home one of your very own! We’ll be giving out a total of 1,020 new Collectibles during the Fall Festival — 20 WHALE NFTs, and 1,000 CLOWNFISH. Here’s how to get your fins on one:
We’re bringing back the Whale Leaderboard — a leaderboard of top LPs across Orca. Each of the top 20 liquidity providers during the Fall Festival will earn one of our coveted WHALE collectibles!
Any wallet that trades on Orca between September 23rd and October 7th will be entered into a randomized raffle. Everyone will have an equal chance to win 1 of 1,000 cute CLOWNFISH!
AMAs and Giveaways
In addition to our partnered Double-Dip Pools, we’ll be gathering some friends from other Solana protocols for Discord AMAs. The Solana ecosystem has a wonderful sense of community, and we’re really looking forward to engaging with all of you! We’ll have some cool giveaways for participants in each AMA, too 😉 Keep an eye out for a list of dates and guests with your favorite projects on Solana.
Speaking of giveaways, we’ll also have some special physical swag giveaways each week. These are our first-ever physical items, so you won’t want to miss it. We can’t release the details quite yet, but keep a close eye on our Twitter for a chance to snag one.
