dYdX Affiliate System Improvement
Kagan released an in-depth paper exploring improvements to the dYdX Affiliate system ahead of v4 to improve engagement and protocol growth. The paper explores the current affiliate system used to attract new users and promote dYdX, outlines areas for immediate improvement, and explores existing systems across other protocols in a comparative analysis. The community and dYdX stakeholders can begin exploring new areas of growth in light of this research. The Grants program will be issuing a retroactive grant based on the initial findings and commitment to growing dYdX.
dYdX Trading Journal and Profile Application
This grant will fund the building of an application that allows dYdX users to access their complete trade history with journaling, reporting, and tracking functions. The goal is to allow traders to track their PnL across multiple timeframes (e.g Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly) and journal their trade entries for historical referencing. Reporting will allow easier access to historical trades for external requirements (e.g. Taxes) and certifications. The Profile element will give users the ability to share their trading performance with other community members, including individual Trade Report Cards and an overall performance page with their accompanying Hedgie NFT (picture a Hedgie with Weekly/Monthly/YTD performance that can be shared publicly).
