How can I invite friends on Ethfinex
You can invite your friends from your Ethfinex referral page www.ethfinex.com/representatives.
Please generate your referral link and then invite your network via email or other channels.
How can I create my link?
From your Ethfinex referral page, you can generate your unique referral link by clicking on the button ‘Generate Link’.
Your new unique link and code will appear in your affiliate section.
How many users joined via my link?
You can see the number of registrations made via your link on your Affiliates table, as well as the associated usernames.

Where will the Nectar tokens I receive come from?
Fees generated on Ethfinex from trading can be paid in any currency. These other currencies are converted on the secondary market into Nectar tokens and are then paid out to you as referral fees.
For example if one of your affiliates pays 1,000 USD equivalent in fees, 240 USD equivalent of these are used to buy NEC on the market and these tokens are then credited into your account.
How can I succeed in the referral program?
Inviting traders within your personal network and raising awareness about the features and roadmap for Ethfinex is the best way to maximize your earnings.
In addition, producing marketing materials and content can also improve your success rates, for example price widgets using the APIs would fit a crypto blog very well. Get creative and let us know if we can provide more tools that would help you to be more successful!
How do I find my referral link?
You can go to your account/referral page and click on “Generate Link” to create your personal referral link. Anyone following the link which contains your personal code will be counted as your referral.
How can I view my referral earnings?
You can follow the numbers of registrations you have generated with your referral link on the representatives page.
In addition, the column Referral Bonus shows your turnover in Nectar token earned from the executed trading orders of your network. This is an exclusive offer, Ethfinex reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the referral program at any time without prior notice and for any reason it finds necessary.
Why are my referral earnings not showing up?
This can happen if the user you have invited has either not executed any minimum order on Ethfinex, or has not used your referral link. The referral bonuses are only paid if the user you invited starts to trade or lend out funds. By participating in the referral program you acknowledge that receiving pay-outs is not guaranteed by Ethfinex and the terms of the program may change in the future.
Are trades made via the Ethfinex API valid for referral bonuses?
Any trades made via the Ethfinex API are included in exactly the same way as orders made via the UI and revenue coming from orders executed through the API are therefore shared at the same rates.
