Stella’s grant request is very reasonable compared to many other applications, with well-defined goals, and solid ROI if approved. Hope to see RDNT/ETH Camelot v3 leverage up and running shortly!

A project with an innovative approach, from what I’ve seen. I’d be in favour of this reasonable grant request.

We’ve worked with the Stella team quite closely on the integration of Pendle assets. Needless to say, they are solid builders in the space and this proposal will serve the Arbitrum community well.

I’m always amazed by the level of their mathematical skills. The optimal swap equation on Uniswap V3 LP is a great testament to their expertise that no one in crypto world can match. A true innovator. :+1:

The 186k ARB grant is reasonable.

Stella rebranded from the original Alpha Venture DAO, but is essentially the same team. Why should the Arbitrum DAO fund a team that has an open issue in regards to user funds being “stuck” with no resolution at hand and no active communication?

Thank you for your question. Stella is indeed the same team as Alpha Venture DAO.

However, there are a few important points that the Stella team would like to clarify:

  • Stella is a completely separate product from Alpha Homora. Stella operates on a new contract, and user funds on Stella are not affected by the actions taken by Iron Bank, an integrating partner on Alpha Homora that upgraded their contract to freeze users’ funds.

  • When the incident took place in 2021 and hacker stole the funds, Alpha Homora and Iron Bank had agreed on how to resolve the bad debt. And this is the resolution that had been executed until Iron Bank froze users’ funds. Pls see more details on the agreement here:
    AHv2Repayment | Address 0x141e0541d87c6cbdbf2a6a8104248b4b922f629e | Etherscan.

  • As for the user funds that are stuck in Iron Bank, users voted to proceed with legal case again Iron Bank. Separately, Alpha Homora setup a goodwill fund for depositors and have an active bounty for any whitehat who can help recover funds stolen from hacker.

The Stella platform introduces innovation to Arbitrum by offering users the opportunity to access leveraged strategies. Stella is the first protocol to enable leveraged positions in Penpie pools, integrating with our wstETH pool from Lido and enhancing potential opportunities and benefits for users. The Magpie ecosystem supports Stella with their STIP application, and we believe that by receiving these incentives, the platform can boost user adoption and engagement within Arbitrum.

Stella’s prepared proposal is technically appropriate. It is also evident that they have made developments on Arbitrum with an innovative DeFi approach and a well-known team. Additionally, we believe that the mentioned incentive amount could be suitable incentives to add more traction to both Stella and Arbitrum, and we find the amount to be sufficient.
