The Double-Sided Referral Boost BETA is scheduled to conclude in Vietnam on November 15th at 12PM PST. This feature has been operational for several weeks within the region, allowing the team to gather insights and user feedback for the improvement of the referral system.
During the BETA phase, a significant number of automated bots were detected originating from Vietnam, exploiting the referral boost feature. This exploitation has led to concerns over system fairness and the potential erosion of trust in the platform.
As a consequence of these challenges, the decision has been made to end the BETA phase for the Double-Sided Referral Boost in Vietnam. Following the termination of the BETA, the referral program will no longer offer a +2 Sat/hr mining rate boost.
While the specific feature is being discontinued in Vietnam, it may be reconsidered for future deployment after implementing measures to prevent similar abuses. Users in Vietnam will still be able to mine, participate in tournaments, and access other airdrops linked to their accounts. The resolution to cease the BETA phase stems from a need to preserve the integrity and user experience on the Ember platform.
What this means for you:
- Referrals will no longer provide a +2 Sat/hr mining rate boost starting on Nov 15th, 12PM PST
- The Double-Sided Referral Boost may return in the future
- You're still welcome to mine daily, enter tournaments, and unlock all other airdrops with your already linked friends
