# Earning Points via Referrals

Earn extra DripPoints for referrals - for both the Referrer and the Referred.

**Here's how it works:**

**Here's how it works:**

Any deposit in Drip accrues 1) Base Points, and may be eligible for 2) Bonus Points. Using any referral link grants the referred party a 30% boost in bonus points earned. Genesis Invites have this 30% bonus activated intrinsically.

Base Points are calculated based on your own deposits and usage of Drip Pools.

Bonus Points are earned by engaging with Drip's referral system.

You can get Bonus Points simply by signing up with a referral code, as well as by referring others. You're even rewarded when your referrals make referrals! See the table at the bottom of this article for details.

The sky's the limit with Bonus Points. There's two levels to our bonus program, each with different reward rates:

Level 1 - 2x Boost:

At an accelerated rate, you can amass a total number of Bonus Points equal to your Base Points, effectively doubling your total points (hence, 2x).

Level 2 - The Trickle:

You can continue to accumulate Bonus Points beyond the 2x Boost to your heart's content. To avoid The Trickle and max out your 2x Boost, keep an eye and increase your base points earned as your referrals grow.

Boost Type | Your Referral Code | Your Referral | Their Referral |
---|---|---|---|

2x Boost | 30% of your base points | 30% of their base points | 15% of their base points |

The Trickle | 6% of their base points | 2% of their base points |

Special reward rates may be made available through our Genesis Invites program. Genesis Invites will periodically be given away by Drip as well as our partners, so keep your eyes peeled.

## Example:

Bob earns 10,000 base points + 3,000 bonus points per week from the referral link he used. Bob refers Alice to use Drip. Alice deposits and starts earning 1,000 base points + 300 bonus points per week.

For his referral, Bob now earns an additional 30% of Alice's 1,000 base points = 300 bonus points per week. Bob's bonus points cap from his referrals is 3,000 bonus points per week, but it was not hit.

Alice now increases her deposits and starts earning 50,000 base points + 15,000 bonus points. Bob now earns 10,000 base points + 3,000 bonus points + 10,000 bonus points from Alice, because his bonus points cap was hit.

Bob now increases his deposit to raise his weekly base points earnings to 60,000. His bonus increases to 18,000 bonus points from the referral link he used and to 15,000 bonus points from referring Alice, as his new cap (60,000) now exceeds the bonus points unlocked by Alice.

Alice now refers her friend Carol who deposits enough to earn 10,000 base points and 3,000 bonus points. Alice now receives 50,000 base points + 15,000 bonus points from Bob's referral link + 3,000 bonus points from referring Carol (with a cap of 50,000). Bob now receives 60,000 base points + 18,000 bonus points from the referral link he used, 15,000 bonus points from Alice as a first leg referral, and 1,500 bonus points from Carol as a second leg referral as he is still below his 60,000 bonus points cap.
