QuickSwap Dragon Dispatch: April & May 2022 Newsletter

QuickSwap’s community has been busy in April and May. We’ve talked about and submitted multiple governance votes that will affect the future of our DEX and token. Besides the token split, and other new features that we plan to add to our new UI, we also tried our best to take good care of each other. If the last two months have proved anything, it’s that the QuickSwap community is strong, and we’re here to build a legacy.

Here’s everything you need to know about what happened with QuickSwap in April & May 2022.

Major Highlights 🔥

  • On April 11th, US-based users were able to use Transak to buy Polygon’s native coin, MATIC, with credit/debit card directly on QuickSwap
  • On May 2nd, QuickSwap’s token split officially began. Users of QuickSwap’s New UI were able to convert their Old $QUICK to New $QUICK for a 1000x increase
  • We also moved our new UI from its alpha version to beta. You can check it out here: beta.quickswap.exchange/#/
  • QuickSwap DEX scored an 80% pass rate on the DefiSafety Process Quality Review
  • On May 13th, QuickSwap (along with several other DeFi protocols) suffered a domain hijacking attack. We quickly regained control of the protocol and moved QuickSwap to a more secure domain hosting service. On May 20th, we initiated a governance vote to create an endowment for those who were affected by the hijacking. 61.1% voted in favor of the proposal and the funds were distributed on May 30th
  • Ritzy — an experienced software developer and security analyst — joined our development team full-time
  • On May 27th, we introduced a governance discussion about whether QuickSwap should feature a predictions market built by PRDT Finance to increase revenue to Dragon’s Lair stakers and the QuickSwap Foundation. With the community behind the proposal, we moved to vote on May 30th. The vote concluded on June 3rd with 98.6% in favor, and the predictions market went live on June 10th.
  • The token split continued as we added the option to convert to our legacy UI and added liquidity mining rewards for LPs of New QUICK pools
