### ℹ️ “Validity period” in the membership activation for Hybrid Bot and Arbitrage Bot pools

🔅 Please take a look at an example of what “Validity period” means in the Hybrid Bot pool membership activation window and the Arbitration Bot pool membership activation window.

The drop-down menu of the “Validity period” section allows you to select the hold/stake period for the amount you plan to put into operation for the selected pool.

As a result of a more extended hold/stake period, you will also receive additional interest on the profit you will receive on a monthly basis, based on the results of the selected pool.

### 🔎 Take a look at a few examples 👇👇

**Example 1️⃣**

You are about to activate the Hybrid Bot pool membership and stake the minimum amount allowed — 100 IFGT, which is equivalent to 1000 USDT.

- When activating membership in the Hybrid Bot pool, you have the following options in the “Validity period” selection:

➖ 1 month (+5%)

✔️ 3 months (+10%)

➖ 6 months (+15%)

➖ 9 months (+20%)

➖12 months (+25%) - As an example, let’s consider how your profit will be calculated if you choose a three-month term (+10%).
- Let’s assume that in the first month after the activation of the membership according to the given parameters, the Hybrid Bot made a profit equal to 10% of the deposit amount, that is, 10 IFGT, or 100 USDT.
- Since the additional percentage of profitability (+10%) is specified in the 3-month hold period you have chosen, the monthly profit in your case will be based on:
- 100 USDT (net profit received for the month) + 10 USDT (those + 10% from profit) = 110 USDT

〰️This particular case can be expressed in the following formula:**10%(bot profitability for the past month) + (0.1*10%) = 11%**.

**Example 2️⃣**

As part of your Hybrid Bot membership, you will stake 230 IFGT, which is equivalent to 2300 USDT.

- In the “Validity period” selection, you have the following options when activating membership in the Hybrid Bot pool:

➖ 1 month (+5%)

➖ 3 months (+10%)

➖ 6 months (+15%)

✔️ 9 months (+20%)

➖ 12 months (+25%) - Let’s consider how your profit will be calculated when choosing a term of 9 months (+20%).
- Let’s assume that the Hybrid Bot made a profit of 15% of the deposit amount in the first month after activation of the membership according to the given parameters, that is, 34.5 IFGT or 345 USDT.
- The additional 20% profitability percentage is included in the 9-month hold period you chose, so the monthly profit in your case will be calculated as follows:
- 345 USDT (net profit received for the month) + 69 USDT (those + 20% from profit) = 414 USDT

〰️ This case can be expressed as follows in the form of a formula:**15%(bot profitability for the past month) + (0.2*15%) = 18%**
