QuickSwap Governance Discussion: Should We Introduce an Isolated Lending & Borrowing Market?

2 min readJun 21, 2022

As the bear market of 2022 rages on, QuickSwap must do everything in our power to increase yield opportunities and create additional revenue streams for our dex and its users. Earlier this month, we voted for and implemented a predictions market to accomplish this goal, but we need multiple avenues of growth to stay ahead of the competition. That’s why we’d like to discuss the possibility of introducing an isolated lending and borrowing market natively on QuickSwap.

TL; DR:

  • During bear markets, DeFi platforms and the people who rely on them often struggle to maintain adequate revenue to sustain their growth and development.
  • We would like to start a discussion about the possibility of introducing an isolated lending and borrowing market built using Market XYZ’s tools natively on QuickSwap.
  • An isolated lending and borrowing market will increase yield opportunities and create an additional revenue stream for QUICK stakers and the QuickSwap Foundation.
  • Lending and borrowing markets also generate increased community economic activity.
  • From these markets, many other DeFi tools can be built upon to compound value.
  • We have already built the market using Market XYZ’s build a market tool and will be ready to deploy it on our user interface if and when the community votes in favor of the proposal.
  • Market XYZ has experience building such platforms and is a trusted friend of the Polygon ecosystem.
  • The code has already been audited and no security vulnerabilities were discovered.
  • We value your input, which is why we’re introducing this discussion before conducting a governance vote.
  • We would like to move quickly and (we hope) pass this proposal so that we can finalize the details and launch it.
  • Please read through this entire document carefully before forming an opinion.

  • We’re running a simultaneous discussion about the possibility of acquiring a v3 to take back volume from our competitors. Read more about that here.
