Title: gDAI / USDs Demeter Farm Incentive Request
Author(s): Gains Network Team
gTrade by Gains Network, a synthetic derivative trading platform launching on Arbitrum, is launching a gDAI / USDs Demeter Farm. The Demeter Genesis structure was approved via SIP-17, gTrade by Gains Network is requesting a SPA incentive match for their gDAI / USDs Demeter Farm.
gTrade is launching a gDAI / USDs Demeter Farm and are looking for a SPA incentive match for the amount that gDAI increases each month.
$gDAI is an ERC-4626 receipt token that:
- Is given when users supply $DAI into the gTrade $gDAI vault
- Servers as a counterparty to all trades made on the platform
- In exchange, receives a portion of trading fees which is proportionally split among all $gDAI
The Gains Network team is asking Sperax DAO for a SPA incentive to match the dollar value of $gDAI at every rebalance period, paid in SPA.
Historically this rate has been 10-12% APY but can vary based on trading volume. This was also prior to our launch on Abritrum and with our previous vault architecture. You can see the current $gDAI price here.
With a 10-12% APY the value of $gDAI would grow 1% per month so we ask that Sperax DAO match that .8%-1% growth per month in SPA incentives. A simple mental model would be to incentivize ~.8%-1% of the $USDs liquidity in the $gDAI-$USDs pool per month
For example, if there is $1M of liquidity in the $gDAI-$USDs pool ($500k of each asset), and we expect to see $gDAI grow by 10% APY to be worth $550k, we would ask that Sperax DAO match the $50K growth by contributing $50k SPA per year.
gTrade is seeking liquidity for gDAI for our launch on Arbitrum. By launching a gDAI / USDs Demeter farm, gTrade will have an instant liquidity solution and also take advantage of pairing against USDs for deep liquidity and receive some matching incentives.
Strong liquidity for gDAI will help create a strong, composable building block for all of Arbitrum DeFi. Pairing with USDs via Demeter will benefit the Sperax community by increasing USDs TVL, improving Univ3 routing for Arbitrum token pairs, and will start a partnership between Gains Network and Sperax.
Launching liquidity incentives for the gDAI pool will not only kickstart the relationship between Sperax and Gains Network, but it will also help create liquidity for gDAI as a strong, compositional building block throughout the Arbitrum ecosystem.
The gDAI/USDs farm will be incentivized by the growth of gTrade and the trading fees accumulating and compounding within $gDAI and seek 1:1 matching in SPA.
Farm: gDAI / USDs
Incentives: Monthly growth of $gDAI due to trading fees accumulated + Trade PNL
SPA match: 1:1 SPA match in dollar terms from the bootstrap liquidity budget to be rebalanced in dollar value on a 7 day TWAP every 2 weeks
Duration: Match guaranteed for balance of 90 days from Demeter launch unless altered via governance proposal. Demeter v2 logic will determine incentives following Demeter Genesis Campaign.
Farm Launch Date: As soon as the proposal is officially accepted by the DAO
Risk Management: If the gDAI / USDs farm goes out of price range SPA emissions will be halted until the farm is relaunched or it goes back in range.
