TLDR: DAO proposals go live tomorrow, Tuesday the 19th. The contributors will begin the process of testing and enabling around 2.00 AM (GMT)

Community is a core mantra of Spartan Protocol & its shield wall, in line with this ethos and now that the following has been achieved, we can open up the DAO and begin making protocol-changing proposals in a more distributed manner!

  • Mainnet V2 protocol up and running for 2 weeks
  • TVL building steadily with confidence
  • The DaoVault weight is looking strong & distributing further each day

What is a DAO?

Decentralised Autonomous Organisation

DAOs place the community participants in control of the platform transparently and programmatically. The power of contracts enforced by mathematics means that a large number of automated actions within a contract can be set up and voted on, the results of which will be automatically actioned.

This would mean when applied to the above example; the community would be able to propose and vote on which tokens they want to be listed for ‘Bond’ for instance. On a successful vote, these tokens would be automatically listed. Resistant to external entities, governments and bad actors getting in the way of that decision.

The community is already familiar with the Spartan Protocol ethos being; ‘birthed by the community, for the community’ with the initial community building the platform the way they wanted to see it within the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem. Chosen for its power, speed and low fees.

Having Spartan Protocol run by a DAO was a central pillar of its development.

What is best for SPARTA!?

A focus on proposals that will benefit the platform in the long run, means focusing on things that help it grow, develop and improve reach before focusing on individual benefit. Community value will drive results in individual benefit, it most likely won’t work the other way around.

March onwards with our original goals of building the decentralised, yield-generating synthetics protocol on Binance Smart Chain

GitHub Activity — Spartan Contracts v2

Lending work has restarted with some fresh new ideas that have come about since the V2 refresh began. The current implementation leans towards utilizing our pools & liquidity providers instead of creating a more traditional ‘separate pool’ market. This brings some POL opportunities & significant potential revenue opportunities for our existing pools/liquidity providers which will also drive more TVL & help harden the goal to provide self-sustaining incentivised liquidity.

As a general explainer, what we might see is something like this:

  • Liquidity providers supply liquidity to the pools & receive LP tokens (just like normal)
  • There is an option for another form of utility for your LP tokens with a LendVault
  • The liquidity provider has a choice between staking them in the DaoVault or LendVault. Each with its own dynamic yield & utility advantages
  • The LP tokens staked in the LendVault will be added to a lending pool ready to be borrowed out by users
  • They can borrow a safe amount of a base asset (BUSD, BNB etc) and provide SPARTA as collateral
  • The LP tokens held in the LendVault are redeemed for the underlying assets, swapped if required (to the chosen asset) and sent to the borrower
  • When the borrower is ready to close their CDP and get their collateral back, they bring the chosen assets back and send in the full amount & receive their collateral minus the interest
  • There will obviously be liquidation opportunities

This implementation provides a lot of potential opportunities for the liquidity providers & therefore the whole ecosystem. It does however make it hard to provide any form of ‘single staking’ via the Lending contract like some of the previous implementations.

Whilst single-staking would be nice & will continue to be attempted to plug in somewhere in a sustainable protocol-benefitting way, it will not be the #1 priority when designing this lending system.

If single-staking works somewhere in the system, it will be plugged in. If it doesn’t or the Lending model requires major nerfing to make it work, it will be pushed to be attempted in another feature instead.

  3. Added some more injected translation IDs
  4. Forked the Assets repo to manually add token icons
  5. Changed number inputs to have a min of 0


  1. Conditionally show TrustWallet icon if TrustWallet ‘wallet type’ is detected



  1. Updated ArrowDownUp & ArrowLeftRight icons




  1. Conditionally show TrustWallet icon if TrustWallet ‘wallet type’ is detected

  2. Updated the pagination behaviour
  3. Changed the ‘ClearTxns’ button to a trash icon and added an alert/confirm when clearing


  1. Added a ‘txns’ tab with a ‘history’ style icon for the transactions history content
  2. Added a ‘clear wallet’ button if no wallet is connected to clear the local storage item in case a user has corrupted local storage selection for their lastWallet



  1. Changed Vault to Vaults
  2. Moved Bond into the Vaults
  3. Changed Overview to Pools




  1. Pointed getTwTokenLogo() to our forked version of the repo instead of TrustWallet's API & repo


  1. Added tooltip placeholder explaining the feature (could do with some rewriting/simplifying)


  1. Added in spot & swap rate logic
  2. Added in slip calc logic
  3. Added in ‘revenue’ logic inc dividends




GitHub Activity — Spartan Subgraph


  1. Updated the poolFactory contract address
  2. Updated the startBlock to the deployment blockstamp
