This team has extensive experience building useful tools for Cosmos Protocol. They implemented the upgrade for the Cosmos ATOM chain that has >$1B marketcap. They launched the Jobs platform for the Cosmos network that now hosts all the project jobs, influencers, and projects. They launched https://curvemarketcap.com/ which tracks the volumes and APYs of various Curve pools. They host the Telegram Group SF Cryptocurrency Devs.

Project Details:

Taariq and Gerrit believe the VolumeGauge will increase liquidity and volume on Curve. They believe this gauge will be used by current and new partners who wish to innovate on new trading incentives.

This is purely a Curve feature. The team will develop the VolumeGauge with community feedback on its functionality and resolve possible issues with the design. Upon completion of the gauge, they will submit a proposal to implement the design into the DAO.

Post-Grant Plans:

The team intends to launch a marketing DAO that leverages Curve VolumeGauges to acquire more daily active traders on Curve. If successful, they will extend Vyper-written volume gauges to other projects.

Requested Grant Size:

$50,000 to build out the VolumeGauges for Curve over the next 3 months.
