Neutra Finance is seeking 100,000 $ARB from the GMX Open Grants Program, aimed at facilitating the migration of our GLP Market Neutral strategy from GMX V1 to GMX V2, thereby advancing our technology.

Objectives #1: Pre-Development

This phase focuses on the groundwork necessary for a successful transition to GMX V2. It involves the creation of a robust mathematical model and the preliminary development of smart contracts, setting the foundation for the subsequent development phase.


  • Completion of an in-depth mathematical model for the GMX V2 Delta Neutral strategy.
  • Initial development and testing of smart contract prototypes.
  • Development of a detailed migration plan from GMX V1 to V2.

Objective #2: Development

This stage is centered on the completion and refinement of smart contracts, ensuring their readiness for deployment. It also includes the critical task of migrating the vault, which requires careful planning and execution to ensure user trust and platform stability.


  • Smart contracts for GMX V2 finalized and deployed.
  • Smooth and user-friendly migration of the vault from GMX V1 to V2.
  • Security audit completed with all identified issues resolved.

Objective #3: Launching

The final stage involves the official launch of the GMX V2 Delta Neutral vault. This phase is crucial for establishing market presence and includes strategies to attract and incentivize new users, as well as measures to subsidize protocol fees to encourage active participation.


  • Successful launch of the GMX V2 Delta Neutral vault with positive user feedback.
  • Target TVL achieved within the first quarter post-launch.
  • Effective incentivization program leading to a significant increase in user base.
  • Implementation of protocol fee subsidization resulting in higher transaction volumes and user engagement.

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

Receiving this grant will be a pivotal step in enabling Neutra to drive innovation and foster significant growth within the GMX V2 ecosystem. As a Project that has not received funding from venture capital or previous grants, this support is crucial for us.

Focusing on the Delta Neutral landscape, our strategy aims to assist DeFi users in acquiring GLP shares while minimizing market volatility. By employing a hedged position — using GMX to purchase GLP for long positions and simultaneously creating short positions — we achieve delta neutrality. This approach is beneficial not just for users in terms of risk management, but also contributes substantially to the GMX ecosystem by enhancing perpetual swap fees and increasing Total Value Locked (TVL).

Therefore, the grant would not only propel Neutra Finance forward but also bring tangible growth and innovation to the GMX community.

Justification for the size of the grant:

In our journey since the inception of Neutra Finance, we have been committed to building innovative solutions on DeFi. GLP Delta Neutral as our first Delta Neutral Strategy, launched on December 22, 2022, stands as a testament to our capacity and expertise in this field. The performance of nGLP vault has been competitive, even when juxtaposed with other delta-neutral projects, reinforcing our case for the 100,000 ARB grant.

This funding is pivotal for the development of our GMX V2 Market Neutral strategy, ensuring we maintain our competitive edge. Notably, Neutra Finance has reached its current position without any venture capital or grant funding, which, while demonstrating our resilience and capability, has also placed us at a relative disadvantage in the rapidly evolving DeFi landscape. The grant will bolster our commitment to delivering innovative solutions and enhancing the GMX ecosystem with our Delta Neutral Strategy.

Furthermore, our ethos at Neutra Finance is rooted in continuous innovation. We strive to emulate and surpass the achievements of leading DeFi platforms like GMX, creating exceptional products for both new and existing DeFi users. Our approach focuses on leveraging the potential of GMX V2 while effectively minimizing market volatility risks. Given our track record and future aspirations, we are confident that Neutra Finance is a deserving candidate for this grant, poised to contribute significantly to the DeFi community.

Execution Strategy:

Our execution plan is meticulously structured to ensure the efficient use of funds and successful delivery of the project. We will allocate resources across development, auditing, marketing, and user incentives. Specific pools and eligible assets will be carefully selected to align with the goals of the GMX V2 Market Neutral strategy. Risk management protocols will be established to safeguard against market volatility and security vulnerabilities.

Grant Timeline:

Phase Time Focus Activity Outcome
Phase 1 (Pre-Development) Q1 2024 Groundwork for transitioning to GMX V2. Developing a robust mathematical model for the GMX V2 Delta Neutral strategy and initial development of smart contract prototypes. A detailed migration plan from GMX V1 to V2

In response to

We want to make a clear statement:

Neutra Finance is committed to advancing decentralized finance with innovative, risk-hedged strategies. Our proposal for the GMX grant is to exclusively fund the development and marketing of the GMX V2 Delta Neutral Strategy. This strategy is designed to provide sustainable investment returns and boost long-term on-chain activity, including a significant increase in TVL and trading activity on GMX V2.

Hello Neutra Team,

We want to thank you for applying to the GMX grants program. The window for applications has recently closed. In the interest of clarity, and to ensure continued lines of collaboration, we want to notify that your grant did not muster full support from the community to move on to approval. Such developments tied only to the STIP grant program are not the end of GMX working with you all. We understand that the opportunity presented by the grants program might have left you in the middle of some developments - we are more than happy to find other ways outside the grants program to see these developments through to a productive end, or to adjust scope accordingly in the interest of such ends.
