Developers Corner

Week 12th June - 19th June 2023

Over the past week, we have been ensuring that the deployment happens smoothly, and correcting any small issues that arose throughout. Small changes with UI were required to facilitate the deployment.

Week ahead plans:

  • Deploy lyLVL and Trading Ladder system on Arbitrum.

  • Add more features to our V2 frontend, working toward the goals to merge v1 into v2 end of month.

  • Working on the cross-chain Referral system

Keep reading for more information about the launch!

Updates & Announcements

Although the DEX has now been deployed, various features are still to be rolled out. Currently, users are able to use the Leveraged trading features on BTC, ETH & ARB. Users are also able to provide liquidity to our three tranches.

The Arbitrum front end is currently located at: 

In 1-2 weeks, this link will be merged with the BNB chain side, creating a seamless user experience for both BNB chain and Arbitrum chain usage on LEVEL.
From that point, will be the only link.

Another important point to note, is that LEVEL is using the official USDC token - Not bridged USDC or USDC.e.

Distribution of protocol revenue on Arbitrum

Revenue from Leveraged trading, swaps & add/remove liquidity is as follows:

  • 45% for LLP Providers

  • 30% for DAO Treasury

  • 5% for Dev Multisig

  • 10% for LVL Staking

  • 10% for LGO Staking

LVL & LGO fees will be accumulated to a reserve contract until omni-staking is ready. Those fees will be distributed once per week on BNB chain to LVL & LGO stakers.

We will make an announcement once Omni-staking is ready and deployed.

Other features to be rolled out

On Wednesday 21st June we will be launching:

  • lyLVL rewards

  • Trading Ladder rewards

  • LVL incentives for LLP providers

Throughout the coming weeks, our plans to bring fully Omnichain operations to our features include:

  • Incentive programs

  • Referral System

  • Staking (for LVL, LGO, DAO)

  • LGO redemption

NFT Drop Information

The success LEVEL has enjoyed so far wouldn't have been possible without the amazing support from our user community. To celebrate our initial strides towards becoming a cross-chain liquidity marketplace, we're planning to launch a unique utility-based NFT, a first of its kind.

These special items will be reserved exclusively for LEVEL's community, with distribution determined retroactively based on past interactions with our protocol on both Arbitrum and BNB Chain.

There will be three categories corresponding to the three main facets of LEVEL:

🦺 Stock Broker’s VestEarned through proving yourself as a trader. The life blood of any financial hub, a Trader needs to look the part at his desk.

🔨 Auctioneer’s Hammer A key group of mechanisms at LEVEL, Auctions serve to widen the reach of the ecosystem as a whole. Embody the power of the Auctioneer with their Hammer.

👒 Tattered Farmer’s HatWe wouldn’t we be anywhere without liquidity. LPs take on risk enabling the entire marketplace to function. It ain’t much, but it’s honest work

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about the NFT drop in the very near future.

 Governance Updates

No Governance proposals have been made through the last week, but expect a new one to be announced very soon!

Be sure that we will keep you posted.

Platform Metrics & Stats

Market Watch

The past week saw the crypto markets wobble due to concerns over the Federal Reserve's monetary tightening and ongoing regulatory battles involving top exchanges Binance and Coinbase.

Bitcoin and Ethereum took a hit with the anticipation of future rate hikes, while the SEC's enforcement actions on the industry added uncertainty. However, with inflation cooling to expected levels, the market bounced back somewhat, demonstrating its resilience.

The upcoming path is unpredictable due to the dynamic regulatory and economic landscape, reminding us of the inherent volatility in the crypto space.
