Governance Update: Launching a DAI Market
SIP (#007) & (#008): Launching DAI 9-30 & Temporarily Ending SWIV/USDC incentives
Over the last week the Swivel DAO had two governance discussions progress to the proposal stage, and through a Snapshot vote!
Both SIP (#007) and SIP (#008) then passed quorum, with the most important result being the launch of a new DAI market on top of Compound!
SIP (#007): Compound Stablecoin Market Launch
As the biggest action item for the DAO, we’ve prioritized implementation of SIP (#007) with the immediate launch of a new market for Compound DAI, starting June 23rd, and maturing September 30th.
SIP (#007) was one of the closest votes that the DAO has had yet, with DAI receiving ~50.23% of the votes, and USDC a close second at ~45.75%.
Given the close vote, we will be launching a DAI market immediately, however, we will revisit a new USDC market once the DAI market accrues enough liquidity.
(Though Swivel v3 is right around the corner!)

With our June markets maturing in two days, make sure to remember to roll your positions over!

SIP (#008): Updated Liquidity Incentives
The second SIP related to the continuance of SWIV incentives on our SWIV/USDC pool.
After some interesting discussion throughout our community, as well as input from a number of external analysts, opinions appeared to support the continued reduction of incentives.
We had planned to shift towards incentives through a Rari Fuse pool; however in context of the recent Rari vulnerability, these plans are currently on hold.
With all this in consideration, SIP (#008) asked the community whether incentives should continue, be reduced, or temporarily discontinued until Rari or another efficient program is available.
The community voted to temporarily end our SWIV/USDC incentive program, with a significant ~57.91% support.
With this conclusion, the previous staking program concluded on 06/18/2022. We will revisit further incentive programs through the normal governance process.

Swivel 3.0 💥
We’ve been cooking up something big with Swivel 3.0! Heading into the arena again with Code4rena on 07/05 🐺
For some early alpha check out an early build (Link), and hang out in our discord / ask questions! Swivel 3.0 enables some revolutionary strategies that no other protocols can cover, and we’ll be dropping some strategy alpha over the coming weeks!
And our frens over at Illuminate are already in the arena themselves!
As one of our first integrations, the Swivilians are throwing all their support as the Illuminate devs face off against the wardens and rip their contracts apart.
If you want to participate in either Illuminate or our upcoming competition, check out Code4rena and become a warden: Link
