Dear Arbitrum DAO,
As a long-time supporter of Arbitrum and co-founder of Pickle Finance, I would like to congratulate you on the successful launch of your DAO. I am writing to make a case for the inclusion of Pickle Finance in the Arbitrum DAO Airdrop (for protocols), as I believe our project was inadvertently omitted.
Considering Pickle Finance’s long-standing presence, ongoing activity, and strong relationships within the Arbitrum ecosystem, we kindly request that the Arbitrum DAO allocate a portion of the airdrop to our project.
Below, I present several key points that demonstrate Pickle Finance’s contributions to the Arbitrum ecosystem and our eligibility for inclusion in the airdrop.
Active Since 2021
Pickle Finance launched on Arbitrum in September 2021, making it our most active chain after the Ethereum mainnet: https://twitter.com/picklefinance/status/1443493637556359172
In conjunction with our launch, we established a partnership with Balancer to co-incentivize liquidity for the PICKLE token on Arbitrum, further supporting our liquidity mining incentives.
Since its launch, Pickle’s Arbitrum contracts have recorded over 15,000 transactions and continue to experience consistent activity. You can view the list of Pickle’s Arbitrum contracts in this Spreadsheet.
Comparison with Other Eligible Protocols
Pickle Finance currently boasts a higher TVL than other yield aggregators that were eligible for the airdrop, such as Harvest, Yearn, and Stake DAO. This will be evident by observing each protocol’s respective DefiLlama pages.
Pickle Finance is committed to fostering the growth of the Arbitrum ecosystem. We would utilize any DAO allocation to encourage our existing user base to explore the vast potential of the Arbitrum ecosystem through our platform. We appreciate your consideration of our request and look forward to your response.
