How It Works

Kava Rise is the most simple, transparent developer incentive program in Web3. Just deploy on the Kava Network, drive usage, and earn your share of $750M developer incentives.

Distribution Method

  • The top 100 protocols will receive pro-rata reward distributions monthly based on usage.
  • Usage will be calculated by the time-weighted total value locked (TVL) of the protocol as a share of the collective TVL of the top 100 protocols.
  • Distributions will be sent to the official protocol address as liquid KAVA tokens.
  • Distribution is divided into a few phases: Phase One will release approximately 1M KAVA per month, with the dates and reward adjustments for future phases TBD, according to Kava Governance.


  • All projects must register their protocol with DeFi Llama
  • All projects must be deployed on the Kava Network at the time of the monthly distribution.
  • All projects must have a minimum Total Value Locked (TVL) of US$10,000 at the time of distribution, calculated by official measurements from DeFiLlama.com
