About the Bounty

Lifinity is a highly optimised proactive market maker designed to improve capital efficiency and reduce impermanent loss.

It uses concentrated liquidity, proactive market making & rebalancing to achieve this. Lifinity is also one of the few projects that has found the right balance of empowering their community while steering the product roadmap using the expertise of the core team.

As part of this bounty, we invite you to write a deep-dive on Lifinity’s products & their approach to community building and governance. Your essay should include, but not be limited to, the following.

  1. An overview of the key products and services available on the Lifinity DEX. How have they evolved over time, what are the key trade-offs made, and a comparison with a few strategic competitors of your selection.
  2. What is the Impact of their decision to have permissioned pools? Both for Lifinity and the DeFi ecosystem at large.
  3. How much revenue have they generated so far? Explore the different income streams, the buyback policies & return on capital to those who invested in the IDO & NFT sale.
  4. How did they raise capital? Who are the different stakeholders Lifinity has, and what are their expectations from the DEX and the core team?
  5. Present an overview of the governance model implemented by the core team. What are its pros and cons? What kind of tools have they used?
  6. List examples of decisions made with and without voting. Analyse their impact on the product and community.
  7. What kind of communication with the community is essential to operate this kind of governance model?
  8. Compare their community design with other DeFi protocols and list the relative pros and cons.
