Notes from call

Tamlyn:

  • Rolled out governance proposals for the purpose of market creation into our testnet. This includes:

    • Being able to submit a governance transaction to the blockchain that proposes a new futures market. Included in that transaction is of course, a bunch of data that defines the instrument and market.
    • Being able to vote on that proposal.
    • If the vote passes, having that market automatically launched into a “pending state” which comprises an opening auction, and then at the “enactment time” launches into a continuous trading mode with a limit order book.
  • Available via GRPC APIs on Testnet, with REST APIs coming in the next release.

  • Tamlyn demonstrating a walkthrough of this at Dystopia Labs’ Liquidity 2020 conference this Sunday 18th October 6.30pm London time.

  • Ran a (Covid-compliant) mini-hackathon with Vega team members and community members with the challenge of creating 2-3 markets to propose on Testnet. Created 2 markets; eth gas futures and YFI/DAI futures.

  • Next mini-hack will take place in the next 2-4 weeks and open to the community. This will be advertised on all channels.
