October marked another month of heads down building in preparation for the launch of Demeter protocol. The Sperax DAO, which includes community members and Sperax core team, pushed 3 new proposals through the forum and Snapshot this month. Lean about the SIPss and other key highlights from October below.

The GMX-USDs pool will be incentivized with $5k worth of GMX a week for 6 weeks. Emissions may be adjusted by GMX for the following weeks depending on TVL in the pool. This contribution will be matched with SPA.

VELA — Promising perpetuals Exchange
VELA-USDs pool will be incentivized with 20k VELA ($12,000) a month for 3 months. This contribution will be matched with SPA pending SIP-18 passing.
New DAOs can apply for matching rewards via SIP.
- The Plutus partnership went live with over 60M SPA being locked forever
- Risk Management structure for collateral took a step forward with a max cap being put on VST collateral.
- SIP-15: Apply Max Cap to VST — This is a step towards a more robust collateral risk management structure.
- SIP-16: Add Saddle Exchange USDC-FRAX-BP Strategy — Additional collateral strategy to prepare for Demeter launch and increase in USDs TVL.
- Sperax deployed their voting power on the Saddle gauge to help reduce SPA emissions. Sperax controls ~5% of the Saddle gauge.
- SPA was listed on Bitrue crypto currency exchange, with direct Arbitrum withdrawals.
- The SPA Buyback and TVL Booster was implemented and sold out in 20 minutes showing great community interest in this feature.
Looking Forward to November:
Now that the Demeter Genesis cohort has been announced, the full product launch is in full effect. Demeter front end will be enabled on November 14. Further partnerships and integrations are in the works, stay tuned for next month’s updates!
