The Buidl-Weekly: 02MAY22–08MAY22

SynthVault Claim Drop | SPIP-105

We had our first 1% SynthVault claim drop this week from 5% to 4%. If you missed out on the SPIP-105 discussions, get up to date via this article. TLDR: SynthVault harvest will reduce, so make sure you harvest before each drop!

The next 1% drop will occur some time during the week of 16th May 2022, so please make sure you have performed a SynthVault harvest if you want to receive the current 4% rate.

Stablecoin APY Update

This week we saw another stablecoin update go out, check out the community DApp for the latest APY estimates on the BUSD, USDT & USDC pools (currently estimated at 11% to 17% pool APY for stables + 35% additional for DaoVault staking)

WhaleStats Mentions

Whalestats tracks up to 4000 of the largest BNB Chain wallets (the “whales”) and provides some helpful metrics and data for users.

Weekly Community Call / Hangout

Don’t forget to tune into the Telegram channel each week with @ReidyPhillip to get updates on the project and broader ecosystem. Feel free to join in the discussion with any ideas and questions!

These are currently hosted every Wednesday but subject to change based on community feedback and availability. When the time is confirmed each week we will do our best to share a reminder via the socials but this can be difficult due to the distributed nature of the project and organisers.

Weekly LearnToEarn Quiz

Congratulations to the winners of the weekly Spartan Protocol LearnToEarn quiz. The theme this week was to remind us of the meaning of the term ‘slip’ which is the difference between the spot rate and the actual rate

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

Don’t forget to ask in the social channels if you are not sure! The community is there to help and these quizzes are all about learning!

GitHub Activity — Spartan Subgraph

General:

  • Added synth mints & burns to swap volume
  • Added a getDerivedToken() helper function

Changes for CoinGecko Integration:

  • Added volTOKEN to the MetricsPoolDay entity
  • Simplified logic in handleSwapped to use input or output instead of deriving from the input every time. ie. derivedSparta is now the input value if fromSparta is true and the output value is fromSparta is false. And the newly added derivedToken is the input value is fromSparta is true and the output value is fromSparta is false
  • Added extra arg to updateDayMetrics() for volTOKEN
  • Updated every use of updateDayMetrics() to hand in null or the derivedToken for the newly added arg
  • Added logic to calc the volume in TOKEN for every change instance of MetricsPoolDay

To Do:

GitHub Activity — Spartan API

General:

  • Updated the API docs to reflect the below changes to the pool objects
  • Changed some other ambiguous language in the API docs

Changes for CoinGecko integration in /pool endpoint:

  • Subgraph call now also grabs volSPARTA and volTOKEN and hands them into the returned pool object as .volume and .volume_quote as required for more accurate volume reporting in CoinGecko
  • Remove the type1 and type2 URL params from .swapUrl (more compact swap URL handed over)

Changes for CoinGecko integration in /pools endpoint:

  • Subgraph call now also grabs volSPARTA and volTOKEN and hands them into the returned pool object as .volume and .volume_quote as required for more accurate volume reporting in CoinGecko
  • Remove the type1 and type2 URL params from .swapUrl (more compact swap URL handed over)
