What is Velocity yield and how to start earning it?
The Velocity yield is designed to reward Kinesis users for adding to the transactional velocity of the Kinesis monetary system by using Kinesis gold (KAU) and Kinesis silver (KAG) as money. Kinesis system participants can do so by either trading KAU and KAG on the Kinesis Exchange or spending it via their Kinesis card.

Do I receive the Velocity yield on all assets I transact?
You will receive your Velocity yield on your KAU and KAG transactions only, including all KAU and KAG pairs on the Kinesis Exchange.
I joined Kinesis before the Yield Engine launch. Is the Velocity yield retroactive?

It’s important to note that the 10% Velocity Yield fee pool allocation came into effect on 1st November 2021, with the previous fee pool allocation of 5% applied to all transactions prior to that date.
What is the Velocity yield paid in?
You will receive a yield in gold on all qualifying Kinesis gold (KAU) you transact by either trading or spending.
Similarly, you will receive a Velocity yield in silver on all qualifying Kinesis silver (KAG) you transact by either spending or trading.
Where and how often will I get paid?
All activated yields are paid monthly, in the first week of each following month, for all yields accrued in the previous month.
Your earned yield will be paid into your Kinesis Money Account.
