Ecosystem Fund Roadmap

A fund designed to support sustainable, long-term growth of the xDai chain

xDai STAKE Ecosystem fund unlocks begin March 31, 2021. This is an important fund designed to support the further development, expansion, and adoption of xDai and STAKE. As such, funds will be used in a number of ways.

Here we offer some initial use cases for the fund. We will continue to expand this page, adding additional uses and use-cases as they arise. If you have an idea for usage that aligns with xDai values (long-term growth, neutral ecosystem expansion, security and support, and sustainable project development) please feel free to propose in our forum.

Ecosystem Fund Details:

Funding Allocations Q2 2021

Funding amounts are approximate and provided in STAKE. We will include additional details such as tx hashes, gnosis safe addresses and other data as they become available.

We are exploring additional measures to ensure fund transparency and funding alignment with community and development needs. Look for more updates soon re: fund allocation governance and reporting.

Increase STAKE liquidity on DEX platforms

  • Amount TBD

  • When providing liquidity to DEXs in the ecosystem it is necessary to provide 2 different assets. To prevent the sale of STAKE to acquire these assets, we will leverage protocols such as Unit Protocol and MakerDAO to lock in STAKE and acquire additional collateral to support liquidity. Any positions we open will be with a high collateral to debt ratio to prevent unexpected liquidation and unnecessary risk.

Community Initiatives

  • Amount TBD

  • Community members can suggest usage for funds by creating a proposal and a linked snapshot where users can vote on proposed usage of the funds. This acts a signaling mechanism for the community and what innovations they would like to see on xDai.
