Applicant Name or Alias: Robin Nagpal (DoDAO)
Project Name: GMX Developer Academy
The proposal outlines the formation of the “GMX Developer Academy,” designed to create comprehensive educational content for developing on top of GMX. This project will leverage our team’s extensive experience and proven track record in developing educational materials for other notable DeFi platforms. The educational website will bear similarities to our most recent academy project, which can be found at https://uniswap.university. Uniswap’s university website aims to onboard liquidity providers, and we are now currently working on the Uniswap V4 Hooks developer documentation.
We have also recently been approved by Arbitrum Grants to create an academy website for onboarding users and developers onto Arbitrum.
The GMX Developer Academy will help:
- Increase developer involvement.
- Ensure more people learn about how to start developing on GMX v2, leading to higher adoption.
- Build lasting trust and reputation for GMX V2.
This proposal is specifically for a Developer Academy website. If you feel that we can submit a separate proposal to help educate and onboard traders and liquidity providers onto v2, please let us know.
Team Members and Qualifications:

GMX stands as a leading protocol in the DeFi world, known for its innovation. The latest version, GMX V2, offers enhanced flexibility for traders and liquidity providers, though this comes with a bit more complexity. V2’s design enables other protocols to easily integrate with GMX, fostering advanced trading and liquidity strategies.
Our goal is to simplify learning about GMX V2 for developers, starting from the basics. After an initial review of the V2 code, we’ve identified several topics to include in our educational content. This list may evolve as we delve deeper into the material and gain a fuller understanding.
- What are perpetuals
- How do perpetuals work (generic)?
- How perpetuals work in GMX
- Providing Liquidity - AMM vs GMX
- Fees in GMX (need to check this in detail)
