MEV Dashboard Maintenance and Infrastructure
This is a follow-on grant to the previous Dashboard grant. As part of this grant, Skip will run between 5 to 10 custom geo-distributed dYdX nodes, modified to catch and measure specific MEV events for the existing MEV dashboard. The team will maintain the dashboard, with database services, uptime, and ongoing development. The grant will include submitting PRs and updating the dashboard as needed to continue measuring relevant MEV data.
VoteExtensions Development (Cosmos SDK)
A top priority for dYdX v4 price oracles and liquidations is the development and release of VoteExtensions on the Cosmos SDK. VoteExtensions will allow validators to vote and agree on the oracle price at each block, enabling a more efficient price discovery and liquidation system for the protocol. Skip Protocol are experienced Cosmos developers that will prioritize the development of VoteExtensions to ensure release ahead of the dYdX mainnet. This will allow the integration and testing of VoteExtensions on dYdX v4 ahead of mainnet launch. This team will be working closely with the other grant in similar scope.
