SpartanProtocol — December 2020

Monthly Wrap Up — See Ya Later 2020


I think it would be safe to say that most people are keen to see 2020 pass to the annuals of the history books. It was a challenging year for many but the crypto community once again showed its strength and commitment to supporting each other by coming together to release and develop the Spartan Protocol.

The novel Burn for SPARTA distribution method resonated with many across the community, showing the commitment of the developers to grow the project for the long term. No founders tokens mean no rug pulls; something that has unfortunately been a theme in 2020. The early contributors have acquired their tokens the same way as all other holders.

The contributors have been working non-stop with the pool features live and running and continuing to grow with work on the DAO and synths just around the corner.

2021 is looking great across the board for both SpartanProtocol & the BSC ecosystem

Steady Growth on Social Platforms

SpartanProtocol shows steady organic growth in interest on Twitter with followers growing month on month.

Although it is great to see prominent members of the crypto sphere starting to take notice of SpartanProtocol, It should be noted that the core contributors are not interested in short bursts of hype and care more about educating people about the platform and on-going development progress.

Long term commitment and development is what is important for the success of the project, we remain steadfastly focused on delivering all features as promised in the initial Spartan Protocol whitepaper.

The idea is to focus on building out the rest of the platform (read DAO and Synths) before ramping up with a heavy marketing campaign.

Following this ethos, the team has worked hard at increasing the amount of educational material that has been released as seen by the weekly development updates and information about the various features of the project.



Currently 5 Pools Available for Bond+Mint

  • BNB
  • BTCB
  • BUSD
  • USDT
  • ETH

With the DAO UI close to completion, the DAO will be able to vote to list/delist BOND assets in the future. The DAO will also be able to vote to add more SPARTA to the BOND allocations up to the max 100m initial supply.


DAOv2 is coming along nicely in the GlobalUpgrade with the future functions already connected/plugged into the UI branch (currently being developed/tested on testnet)

DAOv2 will bring all DAO-related functions across to the central DAO contract and allow for these functions:

  • BOND — Increase BOND allocation
  • BOND — List asset for BOND+MINT
  • BOND — De-list asset for BOND+MINT
  • EMISSIONS — Turn on/off
  • EMISSIONS — Adjust the curve
  • EMISSIONS — Change era duration
  • EMISSIONS — Change eras to earn
  • Change cool-off-period for DAO proposals
  • Propose ‘grant’

Curated Pools

Also for the future feature ‘Curated Pools’ where there will be a higher tier of pools that will be allowed to be used for Synths, DAO weight, Dividends etc.

This will allow for listing any assets even if they have low depth without affecting the integrity of the ecosystem.

  • CURATED POOLS — Add pool to curated tier
  • CURATED POOLS — Remove pool from curated tier
  • CURATED POOLS — Challenge a curated pool
