SECTION 2: GRANT INFORMATION
Requested Grant Size: 500,000 ARB Tokens
With the facilitation of $140 million volumes during the past 4 months on the Arbitrum Network and a user base of 24,055 wallets conducting 66,442 transactions, Interport seeks to use the grant to enhance its performance and incentives additional liquidity on Arbitrum network.
250K ARB will be distributed among users during the 10 months campaign, to compensate for gas fees and encourage users to explore the Arbitrum ecosystem.
250K ARB will be used as incentives to Arbitrum’s stable coin liquidity pool, which would allow for scaling up the trading and bridging volumes to Arbitrum and more capital locked on Arbitrum network.
Currently there is $35 million average monthly trading volume via Interport with Arbitrum network. This includes bridging, cross-chain transactions and cross-chain arbitrage.
While the average TVL of a stable coin pool is only $1 million.
Therefore, increasing the TVL of stable coin pool on Arbitrum by $2 million dollars along with gas fees compensation and campaign incentivisation is expected to bootstrap the volumes.
With rough estimation, the grant of 500K ARB tokens will result in $2,2 billion trading and bridging volumes during the next 10-12 months.
Detailed breakdown and allocation of funds will be transparently shared and any unused funds will be returned to Arbitrum DAO treasury “0xf3fc178157fb3c87548baa86f9d24ba38e649b58”.
Interport Finance Multisig:
Funding Address Characteristics:
The address above is for a 3/4 gnosis safe. Each private key is held by a different member of the Interport finance team, and has not been shared anywhere. The wallet will only be used for managing grants from Arbitrum.
Upon approval of the grant, funds will be channeled through a dedicated smart contract designed to ensure streamlined and secure fee rebates to users. The address of this deployed contract will be made public following grant approval through the appropriate channels.
SECTION 3: GRANT OBJECTIVES AND EXECUTION
- Foster increased liquidity bridging into Arbitrum.
- Minimize fee barriers for new users exploring Arbitrum through Interport.
- Attract more stable coin liquidity to enhance bridge and cross-chain arbitrage volumes.
- Support and collaborate with other grant recipients to contribute to Arbitrum’s success.
- Facilitate effortless participation in the Arbitrum ecosystem for all users.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):
- Tracking the number of unique wallets receiving compensation making transactions into Arbitrum.
- Monitoring the influx of new wallets engaging with Arbitrum via Interport.
- Analyzing and tracking volumes into the Arbitrum network via Interport.
- Observing growth of a stable pool TVL at Interport on Arbitrum.
50% of the grant will be utilized for fee rebates for users bridging into Arbitrum, encouraging participation and investment in the Arbitrum ecosystem.
This will be done through the campaign model that Interport will launch. The campaign will track all cross chain transactions to the Arbitrum network by users and distribute 25K ARB tokens every month (over 10 months) to everyone in the percentage of wallet generated volume over total volume.
Another 50% of the grant will be used as incentives to stable pool liquidity providers.
Interport uses its own stable coin pools to route cross chain transactions.
Incentives will allow us to create a stable coin pool on Arbitrum and hence increase the trading volumes due to deeper liquidity on the Arbitrum chain.
250K ARB tokens will be distributed as incentives for 12 months and expected to attract around 2,5 million USDT/USDC into stable pools at roughly 10% APR for users.
That would potentially lead to significant increase in volumes. And enable way more liquidity for people to use for cross chain transactions and bridging capital.
The grant will begin its distribution among users and liquidity providers once available.
Gas fees compensation and incentives campaign will last 10 months.
The liquidity incentivization program will last for 12 months.
