The primary objectives of Tradao’s grant application are to enhance user engagement on the GMX platform, provide a suite of tools for effective derivatives portfolio tracking, and contribute to the overall growth and security of the GMX ecosystem.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):

  • Transaction Goal: Achieve 4,000 transactions per month on our platform as a direct result of our tools and services.

  • Trading Volume Target: Generate a trading volume of $5 million per month, indicating robust use and reliance on our platform within the GMX ecosystem.

  • Monthly Active Users (MAU): Reach 1,000 monthly active users, showcasing the demand and continuous engagement with Tradao.

  • New GMX Address Acquisition: Onboard 1,000 new addresses to GMX, demonstrating our platform’s effectiveness in attracting and retaining new users.

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

The grant will facilitate the development of Tradao’s upcoming features, such as the copy-trading system and integration with GMX v2, which are anticipated to drive user engagement and trading volume significantly. It will also support the audit process, ensuring the safety and reliability of the services provided.

Justification for the size of the grant:

The requested grant size is justified by the extensive development efforts required to build and maintain advanced tracking and trading tools, the cost of high-quality security audits, and robust marketing campaigns to attract and retain a significant user base.

Execution Strategy:

The grant will be strategically allocated to the completion of ongoing projects like the copy-trading feature and to commence vital new ones like the security audit and marketing campaigns. Risk management will be upheld through rigorous testing, continuous monitoring, and the implementation of the 2/3 multisig SAFE wallet for fund security.

We propose the following timeline for the grant, with a request for an initial batch of funds to cover completed subjects:

We agree to the remainder of the grant to be streamed as per the standard GMX grant streaming policy, and we acknowledge the multisig’s discretion in this process.

Hi @Wing, thanks for your proposal.

I got a chance to trail the TG bot @TradaoBot for checking new positions, would the team be willing to create filters by a certain project GMX V1 and GMX V2 for example?

Would the team also be willing to share access to the bot developments, just for more visibility?

Hey @shogun, thanks for your feedback.

Q1: We can create the filter for sure. But that would happen after our copy trading is done. Then, we will optimize the use experience of Tradaobot.
Q2: We can provide the API to the trader & developer for leveraging Tradao. Also, our frontend can be open source. For the bot development, it related to our database. Because of security reason, we won’t share the full access.

After implementing the requested changes in the milestones, we are excited to share with you that we will be accepting your applications. The proposed timeline is short and solid. Tradao has been very relevant in showcasing traders within GMX towards the wider ecosystem.
