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

1. New User Acquisition:

The grant enables us to offer enticing incentives, such as gas rebates and new user incentives, which will significantly reduce trading costs for users. By allocating these resources strategically, we can attract new users to the Arbitrum ecosystem. This influx of users will contribute to greater user activity within Arbitrum.

2. User Activation and Retention:

Incentives for the first few transactions will encourage new users to interact with our services, leading to higher activation rates. Furthermore, our commitment to ongoing user support ensures that users remain engaged and satisfied, contributing to increased retention rates.

3. Boost Trading Volumes on Arbitrum:

The allocation of resources from the grant to traders, including both regular traders and arbitrageurs, will attract a more significant trading community to the Arbitrum ecosystem. Reduced trading costs, combined with the allure of cross-chain swaps and access to multiple DEXs, will lead to a surge in trading volumes on Arbitrum.

4. Attracting More Projects to Arbitrum:

The integration incentives serve as a valuable catalyst for developers and projects to join the Arbitrum ecosystem. With easy to build SDKs and widget, we support developers to bring their projects to Arbitrum, further enriching the ecosystem.

Justification for the size of the grant:

While we acknowledge that we are relatively new in comparison to other projects, we possess unique technologies and innovative solutions that address part of pain points in the trading ecosystem. This grant of $200,000 will enable us to amplify our presence, making more individuals aware of our project and its distinctive offerings. With these funds, we can incentivize users to experience our platform’s features and launch strategic marketing initiatives to introduce our project and its integration with the Arbitrum ecosystem to a wider audience.

Execution Strategy:

We aim to strike a balance between incentivizing existing users and attracting new users from different blockchain ecosystems.

1. New user incentives (20,000):

  • Incentives for the first few transactions to encourage new users

2. Swap Gas Rebates (100,000):

  • Allocate a significant portion of these rebates to traders, including both regular traders and arbitrageurs, to incentivize them to trade on Arbitrum as 0xGen provides the best exchange rate and the optimal swap routing.
  • By providing gas rebates, we aim to reduce trading costs and improve the overall trading experience for our users on Arbitrum.

3. Cross-Chain swap Gas Rebates (60,000):

  • Focus on attracting users from other blockchain networks to Arbitrum.
  • Allocate these gas rebates to users who perform cross-chain swaps to Arbitrum, making 0xGen more appealing to those who want to move assets from different blockchains to Arbitrum.

4. Integration Incentives (On Arbitrum) (20,000):

  • 0xGen provides easy to build Widget and SDKs for other projects.
  • Offer integration incentives to projects that integrate us on Arbitrum.
  • Structure incentives to reward projects based on the complexity and significance of their integration, encouraging them to integrate more features 0xGen provides on Arbitrum.

Note that gas rebates will be distributed proportionally based on the user’s transaction volume.

Grant Timeline:

We plan to distribute the ARB over 16 weeks, the exact start date depends on when we finally receive the grant.
