Renew Paradigm: the Next Chapter of New Paradigm

Unlock greater rewards with Manta and ecosystem partners

Built upon the success of Manta New Paradigm and enhancing the incentives of MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM, Renew Paradigm is now live! 3,000,000 MANTA are allocated across 11 projects as rewards; furthermore, participating projects offer their own rewards.

You can now engage with 11 projects in the Manta ecosystem using MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM to get Eco-Staked assets. Stake your associated Eco-Staked assets into Manta Renew Paradigm to earn extra eco projects‘ exclusive NFT rewards.

As the current largest modular L2, Manta network has constructed a highly efficient infrastructure with lower costs with Celestia and zkEVM. Manta Pacific powers over 200 innovative ecosystem projects, and provides users with exceptional opportunities to unlock beyond penta yield from MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM within the ecosystem with Renew Paradigm.

Moreover, the thrilling experience of forming teams and collecting Lucky Boxes from the previous game continues, and this time, we’re taking the yield to unprecedented levels.

Renew Paradigm: Beyond Monster Yield

Accelerate the yield on your MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM through Renew Paradigm. We’ve shifted the underlying assets to MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM.

3M $MANTA From New Paradigm Special Rewards Unlocked for Renew Paradigm

As part of the ongoing New Paradigm activities, 5M $MANTA were reserved for the category of Special Rewards. Out of that, 4.2M $MANTA will be distributed to projects participating in New Paradigm, indirectly benefiting New Paradigm participants. 1.2M $MANTA from the 4.2M pool have already been distributed to participating projects; the remaining 3M $MANTA will be allocated for rewards for Renew Paradigm. It will be distributed to participants in this event.

Read the MANTA tokenomics and the introduction about STONE and wUSDM in New Paradigm.

In the Manta Pacific Renew Paradigm, there are three types of Eco-Staked assets for staking:

  1. Regular wrapped ERC20 (i.e., IMANTA from Layerbank)
  2. Special ERC20 (i.e., Chip in ZKholdem, 1:1 mint ZChip after staking)
  3. ERC721 LP NFT (similar to ERC721 LP in Aperture V3)

The table below provides detailed information on which assets are supported for staking in the Renew Paradigm and how to obtain these Eco-staked assets for staking:

In addition to native yield and earnings from DeFi protocols, the staking assets you receive (e.g., lMANTA) will add another layer of yield. The graph below shows all of the yield opportunities available for Renew Paradigm:

  1. Fixed Yield: native yield from STONE and wUSDM
  2. Ecosystem Yield: activating additional yield through DeFi protocols (Lending, CDP, and DEX)
  3. Exclusive Incentives: Manta Rewards. Similar to New Paradigm, we have the crazy lucky box and NFT collection activity, earning MANTA token rewards and ecosystem project token incentives more than Penta yield. Earn Box Pieces/NFTs to earn rewards from a pool of 3M $MANTA (based on each project’s TVL rank).
  4. Exclusive Incentives: Ecosystem Rewards. Token incentives from Manta Pacific ecosystem projects. With Renew Paradigm, You can engage with 11 projects in the Manta ecosystem using MANTA, STONE, and wUSDM to get Eco-Staked assets. Stake your associated Eco-Staked assets into Manta Renew Paradigm to earn extra eco projects’ exclusive NFT rewards, which offer allocation in each ecosystem projects’ token rewards.
  5. Restaking: STONE. When you utilize STONE as the underlying asset for restaking on Manta Renew Paradigm, you earn additional point incentives including STONE points and Eigenlayer points (will be distributed by StakeStone).

NFT Collections for Ecosystem Project Rewards

Stake Eco-Staked Assets equivalent to the value of 1000 MANTA tokens will grant you 25 Box Pieces. Every 25 Box Pieces will be released over a 7-day period and automatically combine into a single Lucky Box — a mechanism very familiar for those who have participated in New Paradigm.

Each Lucky Box corresponds to a specific project and can be opened by collecting 25 Box Pieces associated with that project. Opening a Lucky Box for the corresponding ecosystem project earns you rewards through that project’s token rewards.

  • When opening a project’s Lucky Box, you will obtain one out of five NFTs for that project. Each project has five NFTs to collect; each NFT pertains to a certain rarity, and gives different allocation in the project’s rewards. The NFT you collect from a project’s box is not exchangeable for another project; e.g., if you received an NFT from the LayerBank box, you will receive allocation in LayerBank rewards.
  • If you have multiple NFTs from multiple projects, you will receive rewards from all of the projects you hold NFTs on. E.g., if you have NFTs from LayerBank, zkHoldem and ZeroLend, you will receive rewards from LayerBank, zkHoldem and ZeroLend.
  • Boxes can only be claimed during the first 30 days (Deposit Period — see Timeline below for more details).
  • You have until the end of the Renew Paradigm campaign (total 69-day period) to open your boxes to claim your NFTs.
  • The rewards you can claim from your NFTs will be available in accordance with each project’s token release schedule. The project will decide how they will distribute the rewards.

  • Stake Eco-Staked Assets: Secure your Box Pieces by staking the eco-staked tokens listed on the Renew Paradigm page.
