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

TL; DR:

  • Earlier this week, we opened a discussion forum asking our community if QuickSwap should introduce an Isolated Lending and Borrowing Market.
  • An isolated lending and borrowing market will generate increased community economic activity, increase yield opportunities, and create an additional revenue stream for QUICK stakers and the QuickSwap Foundation.
  • The QuickSwap community has expressed overwhelming support for the proposal, with many users asking “wen vote?”
  • We are now moving to the next phase: a governance vote.
  • The snapshot for the vote will take place on Sunday, June 26th.
  • The vote will begin immediately after the snapshot and will run until Thursday, June 30th.
  • If the vote passes, our developers will integrate the code for the lending and borrowing market to our beta UI and launch it within the next couple of weeks.
  • We have a simultaneous governance discussion and vote going on about moving forward with a V3 ‘Concentrated Liquidity’ model. QUICK holders can participate in both governance votes.
  • Details about the proposal, voting eligibility, and how to participate in QuickSwap’s upcoming governance vote follow.

What advantages does having an isolated lending and borrowing market offer?

  • 90% will go to the lenders
  • 5% will go to Market XYZ
  • 3.33% will be used to market buy QUICK and distribute to stakers in the Dragon’s Lair
  • 1.67% will go to QuickSwap’s Foundation, which we use to fund our development and operations costs

Voting Eligibility

You are eligible to vote if you meet any of the following conditions:

  • You hold Old QUICK in a MetaMask Wallet or another Polygon-enabled wallet to which you control the private keys. Please note: To qualify, your Old QUICK must be held on the Polygon Network and not on Ethereum, BSC, or any other chain.
  • You hold New QUICK in a MetaMask Wallet or another Polygon-enabled wallet to which you control the private keys. Please note: To qualify, your New QUICK must be held on the Polygon Network and not on Ethereum, BSC, or any other chain.
  • You deposited your Old QUICK into the Dragon’s Lair and are now holding dQUICK in its place while you accumulate more Old QUICK.
  • You deposited your Old QUICK into a Dragon’s Syrup Pool and are farming other tokens with it.
  • You deposited your New QUICK into a Dragon’s Syrup Pool and are farming other tokens with it.
  • You are providing liquidity for select New QUICK pairs on QuickSwap and have staked your LP so you’re earning trading fees and dQUICK rewards. Select pairs include:
  • New QUICK — ETH
  • New QUICK — USDC

You are not eligible to vote if:

  • You hold Old or New QUICK on a centralized exchange wallet (such as Binance, Coinbase, Crypto.com, etc) to which you do not hold the private keys.
  • You hold Old or New QUICK in a self-custodial wallet (like MetaMask), but you keep that QUICK on Ethereum, BSC, or any network other than Polygon.
  • You are providing liquidity for a QUICK pair not listed above on QuickSwap or for any QUICK pair on another DEX. (To be clear: Only the QUICK you are using to LP for pairs not mentioned above will be excluded from the snapshot. If you also hold QUICK that you are not using to LP with, you will be eligible to vote with that).
  • You have deposited your dQUICK in a vault outside of QuickSwap to lend or borrow.

Timeline

How to participate in the vote

  • The combined weight of Old QUICK, New QUICK, and dQUICK in your wallet at the time of the snapshot will dictate the weight of your vote
