State Objects

The x/incentives module keeps the following objects in state:

State ObjectDescriptionKeyValueStore


Incentive bytecode

[]byte{1} + []byte(contract)




Incentive id bytecode by erc20 contract bytes

[]byte{2} + []byte(contract) + []byte(participant)




Total allocation bytes by denom bytes

[]byte{3} + []byte(denom)




An instance that organizes distribution conditions for a given smart contract.

type Incentive struct {
	// contract address
	Contract string `protobuf:"bytes,1,opt,name=contract,proto3" json:"contract,omitempty"`
	// denoms and percentage of rewards to be allocated
	Allocations github_com_cosmos_cosmos_sdk_types.DecCoins `protobuf:"bytes,2,rep,name=allocations,proto3," json:"allocations"`
	// number of remaining epochs
	Epochs uint32 `protobuf:"varint,3,opt,name=epochs,proto3" json:"epochs,omitempty"`
	// distribution start time
	StartTime time.Time `protobuf:"bytes,4,opt,name=start_time,json=startTime,proto3,stdtime" json:"start_time"`
	// cumulative gas spent by all gasmeters of the incentive during the epoch
	TotalGas uint64 `protobuf:"varint,5,opt,name=total_gas,json=totalGas,proto3" json:"total_gas,omitempty"`

As long as an incentive has remaining epochs, it distributes rewards according to its allocations. The allocations are stored as sdk.DecCoins where each containing sdk.DecCoin describes the percentage of rewards (Amount) that are allocated to the contract for a given coin denomination (Denom). An incentive can contain several allocations, resulting in users to receive rewards in form of several different denominations.


Tracks the cumulative gas spent in a contract per participant during one epoch.

type GasMeter struct {
	// hex address of the incentivized contract
	Contract string `protobuf:"bytes,1,opt,name=contract,proto3" json:"contract,omitempty"`
	// participant address that interacts with the incentive
	Participant string `protobuf:"bytes,2,opt,name=participant,proto3" json:"participant,omitempty"`
	// cumulative gas spent during the epoch
	CumulativeGas uint64 `protobuf:"varint,3,opt,name=cumulative_gas,json=cumulativeGas,proto3" json:"cumulative_gas,omitempty"`


An allocation meter stores the sum of all registered incentives’ allocations for a given denomination and is used to limit the amount of registered incentives.

Say, there are several incentives that have registered an allocation for the $BCX coin and the allocation meter for $BCX is at 97%. Then a new incentive proposal can only include an $BCX allocation at up to 3%, claiming the last remaining allocation capacity from the $BCX rewards in the inflation pool.

Genesis State

The x/incentives module's GenesisState defines the state necessary for initializing the chain from a previously exported height. It contains the module parameters and the list of active incentives and their corresponding gas meters:

// GenesisState defines the module's genesis state.
type GenesisState struct {
	// module parameters
	Params Params `protobuf:"bytes,1,opt,name=params,proto3" json:"params"`
	// active incentives
	Incentives []Incentive `protobuf:"bytes,2,rep,name=incentives,proto3" json:"incentives"`
	// active Gasmeters
	GasMeters []GasMeter `protobuf:"bytes,3,rep,name=gas_meters,json=gasMeters,proto3" json:"gas_meters"`
