1. What is Snowball?
Snowball (previously known as Protective Earn) is a structured product designed to offer you better security with higher yields. During the holding period, settlements will vary based on different price conditions.

2. How does settlement for Snowball work?
For Snowballs purchased with USDT:
1. No Knock-In or Knock-Out (observation price never exceeds take-profit price nor falls below protection price) Normal settlement at maturity, where: Settlement Amount = Principal + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term

2. Knock-Out (observation price exceeds take-profit price on any day) Settlement Amount = Principal + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term

3. Knock-In (observation price falls below protection price on any day) Settlement Amount = Principal / Initial Price of Target Currency + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term / Observation Price of Target Currency on Settlement Day

For Snowball purchased with target currencies (such as BTC/ETH):
The first and second scenarios are the same as above. 1. No Knock-In or Knock-Out (observation price never exceeds take-profit price nor falls below protection price) Normal settlement at maturity, where: Settlement Amount = Principal + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term 2. Knock-Out (observation price exceeds take-profit price on any day) Settlement Amount = Principal + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term

3. Knock-In (observation price falls below protection price on any day): Settlement Amount = Principal * Observation Price on Knock-In Day / Initial Price + Principal * APR / 365 * Holding Term

After subscribing to a Snowball, a notification will appear indicating whether its subscription is in progress or completed. From there, you can choose to toggle Auto-Compound on.

However, do note that Auto-Compound may not occur in instances where the max quota for the specific product has been met, if it is delisted, or in scenarios of extreme market fluctuations.
