The affiliate program is designed so that anyone providing an affiliate link for new BUSTA players, traders and stakers, will automatically receive commission rewards every time someone who joined via their link does any of the following:
This is great for casual users to earn a little commission here and there from inviting friends, but affiliates with large social followings are easily able to create lucrative passive income streams. These will last indefinitely so long as the game has players and the token is traded and staked
Affiliates who invite friends and / or followers to participate in the BUSTA ecosystem have the ability to earn passive income in three ways. For the sake of simplicity the following will refer to a person who was been invited via an affiliate link as the "friend"
BUSTA games are set to have a 1% house edge. With BUSTA CRASH that edge is taken 1 in every 100 games on average through an immediate crash at a 1.00x multiplier. When an affiliate's friend is playing the game and gets caught in a 1.00x crash, the affiliate will receive 12.5% of the total bet lost to the house
When an affiliate's friend joins the BUSTA ecosystem and decide to make a trade, the AMM / Router will take a 4% transaction tax. This fee is distributed through the protocol with 1/8 of the 4% fee, better stated as 0.5% of the transaction, going to the affiliate
Providing liquidity on BUSTA FARM for yield is a large part of the ecosystem. When an affiliate brings on a friend who earns yield in a BUST pool, the affiliate profits as well. At the time that the friend claims rewards, 5% of the claimed amount is also given to the affiliate to collect. This 5% is taken out of a special affiliate reward pool instead of out of the friend's rewards, so the affiliate gains the extra tokens without the friend losing anything
It's not just the affiliate who earns these rewards but also the friend, with a 90 / 10 split (90% to the link provider, 10% to the friend). This makes it more beneficial for anyone new coming to the project to join via an affiliate link than just jumping straight in as if they don't join via a link then those bonus rewards just go to the BUSTA treasury instead
