SpartanDEV: 14FEB22–20FEB22

Summary

Quite the stimulating week of liquidity wars with the USDT pool continuing to stockpile liquidity and the USDC pool coming out and startling everyone with a quick leap from one of the lowest TVL pools to surpassing the USDT pool and bouncing into the top 4!

Through the week we also saw an exciting new ONTO Wallet staking campaign, a new $RAZE pool listed by the community and much more. Read on below to get your week’s wrap-up of sizzling news.

USDC #OpenTheGates -> 200K

The USDC pool kicked off the week with some surprise liquidity suddenly coming in and plugging up the pool! The recent excitement over the USDT Curation and swap activity potential we are seeing there might have ignited some forward-thinking attraction from Spartans to get ahead and see what kind of revenue they can induce.

The liquidity caps for USDC were raised from 100K to 200K in reaction to this.

ONTO Wallet Staking Campaign

A big ONTO Wallet campaign kicked off during the week to incentivize users to stake USDTp LP tokens in the DaoVault earning them extra SPARTA yield and DAO weight in proposals. This campaign is now over and an update will be released once the numbers are crunched and the winner list is finalised.

USDC #OpenTheGates -> 400K

The USDC pool didn’t wait long before jumping to its liquidity caps yet again! An extra 100K must not have been enough for our hungry Spartans. In reaction to this, the liquidity caps doubled from 200K to 400K with USDC looking to be soon on the heels of the USDT pool.

USDC #OpenTheGates -> 650K

It once again did not take long for the USDC pool, impressively jumping up to its new liquidity caps. The caps were this time raised up to match the USDT pool at 650K. USDC at this point was not showing any signs of slowing down its liquidity drive forwards!

USDC + USDT #OpenTheGates -> 1M each

USDC soon asserted its seriousness by passing USDT in liquidity and then proceeding to hit its caps once again. Both the USDT & USDC pools were then raised to 1M caps each to allow in more liquidity. USDC actually then proceeded to hit its 1M caps before the week ended and had its caps raised yet again to 1.5M.

  • The USDT pool now sits at 680K liquidity
  • The USDC pool now sits at just over 1M liquidity

Both stablecoin pools are really starting to generate some decent revenue which should work towards making that liquidity stay and potentially help attract more.

It might be time to start discussing as a community whether we Curate the USDC pool next!

Friday #LearnToEarn Quiz Results

Our previous #FridayFor300 quiz results are in with 3 lucky winners to the question:

Which DAO function can anyone call to finalise a DAO proposal that has passed its cooloff period?

The correct answer was finaliseProposal()

Read more about managing DAO proposals here.

New Friday #LearnToEarn Quiz

There is a new #LearnToEarn quiz up and live for Spartans keen to learn more about the protocol and win some SPARTA in the process!

What fee model do the Spartan Protocol pools utilize?

Don’t forget to check the hint link in the Gleam task list if you aren’t sure, it links you directly to the docs where the answer is right in front of you, absorb the info and enter the comp!

After vetting correct answers and users who didn’t pass the Gleam verification checks each week the pool of potential winners that are randomly picked from is quite small relative to the usual Twitter competition out there, so the probability is quite high for Spartans who enter each week and take the time to do all the steps + answer correctly. Worthwhile doing this every week if you are on the fence Spartans!

New Pool: $RAZE

Towards the end of the week, we had a new pool created by a Spartan community member, listing $RAZE as a tradable asset within the Spartan Protocol ecosystem and its aggregation partners.

The token icon/info has now been updated and the pool is currently sitting almost at its liquidity caps, due for an #OpenTheGates in the coming week.

Have a read about Raze Network on their official website and learn more about their privacy protocol looking to help add a privacy layer to multiple public chains. Expect more info to follow soon from the Spartan Protocol community on what they like about the project and why they listed its token in a Spartan pool.

Most Traded Leaderboard: $SPARTA

We once again had more signs of heavy SPARTA token activity on-chain, with SPARTA popping in and out of a few leaderboards in some tools such as WhaleStats. Don’t forget Spartans, this is due to the very important utility that the SPARTA token provides and the entire protocol relies on.

Physical NFT Drum Giveaway

Our in-house chair-hater @ReidyPhillip (aka Thespis) & community rallying powerhouse has gone ahead and had a unique handmade drum made to give away to a lucky Spartan community member! Follow the Gleam.io link in the tweet to get involved, don’t hesitate though, only 1 week left to enter!

Some creativity & fun is recommended here in answering the tasks/questions, this drum is a massive prize and a huge symbol of Spartan pride & devotion. Show your alignment with Spartan Protocol by telling us what you love about it!

LiqAdd Form Type

Just a minor change in the DApp this week with the form/input format/type being changed over.

To Do:

The next major item for the DApp will be to create a new branch with all stylesheets ripped out, starting by rebuilding the responsive structure of the major elements of the DApp using CSS-grid, then re-organising the file structure to make it a little more friendly, then begin building out a revamped theme/style for the react-bootstrap elements (light & dark modes)

This component library has taken a bit of a back seat for now with a focus on cleaning up the existing DApp repo instead of rushing this one. Contributors can come back to this & work towards the initial plan of making it a whole component UI library (for all community DApps, not just the current one) instead of the in-between phase that it was becoming (the partial work will shift from here to a branch on the DApp repo soon for the DApp-refresh phase to continue)

Hence the below to-do list is now pointing towards what was previously meant to be the ‘next stage’:

To Do:

Create UI Library #00 · Issue #4 · spartan-protocol/spartan-ui-library
