Hey @ScaleWeb3 thanks for the feedback and explanation!
We will be working on growing usage and taking another look at ask amount for the next round of proposals.
Glad to hear you had a positive experience with GYSR incentive mechanisms, and we agree it would be a great fit for Optimism! We think it is especially important to provide tooling for such a fast growing ecosystem.
And that’s a great suggestion, will reach out to connect with other projects launching incentive programs right now on Optimism.
We will revise our requested grant amount and break usage down to be much more granular in our next submission. And we did provide some feedback on that accountability thread! Thanks for all your work and thinking here.
Thank you for the tag and just a heads up, there will be no phase2, phase1 its an ongoing process until the fund is over, so i would suggest you to go though all the suggestion and amend the proposal so that you have ample amount of time before the next voting round
I am voting no on this proposal. I read the white paper. I think the team has put in serious effort in developing their product. In the end, I have a hard time seeing how the grant is more of a public good than a subsidy. I think the rewards-based platforms are incentivized (and disincentivized) well by market forces. While there may be derivative public benefit, I do not see the need for a grant as a catalyst. I would be interested in seeing if the team develops further products.
I’m still having a rough time understanding the full scope of what you all do. But doesn’t xToken Terminal do something similar to the easy liq mining setup? I think one thing that could be helpful would be to break down your product line and at least share a close analog for each for reference.
With regard to distros
60,000 OP (37.5%) to set up incentives for 3rd party Pools deployed on GYSR (on Optimism) for distribution over a year
My personal belief is that a year’s too long for these types of things – even three months are plenty of time for LPs to get in place, and saying it’s not enough is essentially admitting that the rewards aren’t sticky.
In addition, you say “By offering side-by-side rewards and incentives on Optimism, it will encourage users to move their assets to Optimism for better return rates.” What would be helpful would be some numbers demonstrating how this would be the case, expected rates, pool of capital likely to move, etc.
I’d almost say that #2 should be the only reward of the two offered, as that’s the only one guaranteeing new capital moving in in the first place – but am more than open to some data here.
40,000 OP (25%) towards new bond sale incentive mechanism tooling
a. 15,000 OP towards development
b. 25,000 OP towards audit costs
Would love a description of this intended tool. Is this similar to Olympus Pro? And if so, what will the fee breakdown be?
20,000 OP (12.5%) as bounty referral incentives
a. 1000 OP per referral over 50K USD in rewards locked
I think there’s an opportunity here to spell out how this piece of the grant adds value to the Optimism ecosystem.
Think what you’re offering is great – I’d at least personally love to see some more detail in what you’re offering and in how OP grants unlock growth for everybody.
Yeah you’re right, their solution does overlap with one use case for GYSR (our Uniswap v3 liquidity mining solution with Arrakis). But GYSR pools can be configured for a very wide variety of use cases.
Here’s a page that outlines some common mechanisms and use cases on GYSR
Agreed, one year is on the longer side. Most liquidity mining programs we see start ~90 days (and usually extend). This is just being conservative with the OP part of the distribution. Another approach we’d be open to is aligning the OP funding schedule with whatever period the project uses.
So we can give a lower bound on rewards here inherent to criteria for the distributions
