Dev Update: | BonDAO Live| Branding Update| Synths |


Well, that was a busy week!

The first thing most people will notice is the refreshed colour-scheme within the UI.

An exciting feature dropped in this week is the first instance of the DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation). This first DAO-UI implementation is the ‘BonDAO’, which allows LP token holders to propose and vote on changes to Bond+Mint variables within the smart contract.

Those with a keen eye on our social channels will have also seen some sneak peeks at the synth developments that are underway.

SpartanDAO (BonDAO) — Now Live

The BonDAO allows the community to decide which tokens can be added to the curated list of assets eligible for the Bond+Mint distribution. They can also propose to allocate $SPARTA to the Bond+Mint contract in increments of 2.5 million SPARTA (up to a possible 100 million total distribution amount).

Choose to allocate SPARTA to Bond+Mint contract or decide which tokens you want to see curated

You will need to be a liquidity provider and join the SpartanProtocol DAO to be able to have your voice heard. There are no ‘fancy’ governance tokens required, just an active contribution to the protocols liquidity.

To incentivise participation, the plan is to funnel 10% of the SPARTA emissions to the DAO which will be ‘harvestable’ by DAO participants on the Lock+Earn page. This means you will get the usual rewards from ‘dividends’ & ‘slip fees’ in the pools you are participating in, plus your weighting of the DAO rewards as well.

Not only do you get to influence SpartanProtocol’s future; you will be rewarded for doing it actively.

Please take the time to read the deep dive article.

UI and Branding / Theme

There was a strong push from the community to bring back something resembling the old red/black colour scheme, suggested to be more fitting to the ecosystem. Ask nicely and you shall receive!

The freshly activated DAO sports the upgraded theme from day one

The contributors were ecstatic to take the scheme, remove a little bit of the harshness of the flat colours and I think it’s safe to say the results speak for themselves. There is still some work to be done with certain button colours etc so please add a GitHub issue whenever you spot a UI issue and the contributors will get onto it ASAP!
