    • Eligibility for the competition is reserved for copy trading users with trading volumes routed through GMX v2.
    • The competition will span 8 consecutive rounds, each lasting 2 weeks. A reward of $5,000 in $ARB tokens will be allocated for each round, exclusively for the Top 10 copiers exhibiting the highest copy trading performance based on Profit and Loss (PnL).
  • Launching an incentive program for participants achieving a minimum copy trading volume of $1,000 on Copin through GMX v2, utilizing a first-come, first-served mechanism.

How will receiving a grant enable you to foster growth or innovation within the GMX ecosystem?

Receiving this grant will significantly boost Copin’s capabilities to enhance growth and innovation within the GMX ecosystem in several ways:

  • Elevating Copy Trading: In both traditional finance and the crypto space, copy trading stands as a cornerstone product. It’s the easiest way to onboard new users into trading products, as copying skilled or profitable traders is an innate human desire. Copin’s blockchain-based development in the realm of perpetual DEX, with GMX as its pioneering flagbearer, provides a new level of personalization. Users can comfortably analyze, explore, and personalize their trading strategies before copying (with 100% transparent data).

  • Infrastructure for Analysis: Copin has established infrastructure aiding users in easy trader analysis and exploration with diverse tools like filtering and leaderboards. This grant from GMX will facilitate Copin in reaching a broader user base outside GMX. The grant will significantly drive new user participation in exploring GMX traders’ analyses and copying them through GMX v2, thereby reinforcing and disseminating GMX’s position as the top decentralized perpetual DEX.

  • Beyond Trader Analysis: Copin isn’t solely focused on developing on-chain trader analysis and copying features. It also serves as an on-chain data analytics solution tailored for perpetual DEX protocols. By aggregating data from on-chain traders across various perpetual DEXs, Copin opens new gateways for the perpetual DEX ecosystem at large, including GMX’s future landscape.

Execution Strategy:

  • The allocated grant funds will be meticulously managed and strictly overseen in accordance with a project plan approved by the entire team.

  • The grant funds designated for product development will be disbursed following thorough assessment and released over time as individual features are tested and launched. These include integrating use cases involving data from GMX v2, Telegram bot alerts, GMX v2 leaderboards, backtesting, and copy trading via GMX v2.

  • Funds allocated for the copy trading competition and incentive program will be distributed and managed as outlined below:

    • For the copy trading competition:

      • The competition will span 8 rounds, each lasting 2 weeks. Consequently, the prize pool for each round will be 40,000 $ARB / 8 rounds = 5,000 $ARB.

      • Top copiers can claim their eligible $ARB allocations through our Copier Leaderboard page every 2 weeks as per the contract.

    • For the incentives program:

      • A fixed amount of 10,000 $ARB tokens will be allocated.

      • Users can claim their eligible $ARB allocations through Galxe (Copin Analyzer | Galxe) utilizing a first-come, first-served mechanism.

Grant Timeline and Milestones:

Total Timeline: 4-5 months, segmented as follows:

  • Milestone 1: Allocation of 40,000 $ARB for GMX v2 integration, encompassing the aforementioned features. Expected completion within 1-2 months.

  • Milestone 2: 30,000 $ARB designated specifically for:

    • User incentives program (10,000 $ARB)

    • Activation of marketing and community campaigns (10,000 $ARB)

    • Conducting 2 rounds of the copy trading competition (10,000 $ARB). Anticipated to commence 1-2 months after the completion of milestone 1.

  • Milestone 3: Allocation of 30,000 $ARB to conduct 6 consecutive rounds of the copy trading competition continuously over the following 3 months.

Upon approval of this grant proposal, Copin proposes that an advance transfer of 20,000 $ARB from milestone 1 be made to expedite the completion of this initial phase. Upon fulfilling milestone 1, Copin will receive the remaining 20,000 $ARB from milestone 1. Subsequently, the grant from milestone 2 will be received to initiate marketing, incentive, and competition campaigns as outlined in the plan and milestones. Finally, milestone 3 will be executed to conclude the entire copy trading contest.

Fund Streaming:
While we strongly advocate for securing funding in alignment with the outlined plan within the grant’s timeline and milestones section, we remain open to the possibility of adapting the distribution of this grant’s funding to better suit the evolving needs of the Copin project. We believe such flexibility will contribute to the project’s optimal development. We are open to discussing and refining the funding distribution process as deemed suitable through collaborative dialogue.

Hi @CredegarFhristensen
Thank you for your feedback and interesting questions.
We’ve updated the detailed timing for integrating GMX v2 as follows, comprising two main integration phases:

1. GMX v2 data integration (trader profiles, position history, open positions, Telegram bot alerts, trader leaderboard, backtesting)

  • Testnet: 3/1
  • Mainnet: 10/1

2. GMX v2 decentralized copy trading

  • Testnet: 20/3/2024
  • Mainnet: 20/4/2024


  • Our core Copin development team, primarily based in Vietnam, will observe a Lunar New Year break from 8/2 to 14/2, affecting the overall progress of GMX v2 Copy Trading feature. Hence, we’ve scheduled the testnet and mainnet releases accordingly.
  • Upon the release of GMX v2 decentralized copy trading, we’ll initiate copy trading competitions and incentive programs as outlined in the grant proposal.
  • If this proposal’s timing doesn’t align with GMX’s roadmap or if adjustments are needed, please inform me. We can discuss adapting the development timeline for better alignment.

Copin’s current user base primarily consists of traders from the Vietnamese community and a user segment from perpetual DEX, interested in copying trades across these platforms. Additionally, traders view us as a reliable source for information, utilizing our data and analysis to enhance their trading skills.

Our core Copin team is predominantly from Vietnam, maintaining strong ties with trading communities in Vietnam, Southeast Asia, and Asia at large (China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Korea, etc.). These regions offer easy access for us to engage and collaborate with community leaders, inviting their participation in Copin competition & incentives programs.
