Agave Proposal AGVE-ELK Farms

Proposal will be posted in next 48hrs

Proposal description:
Minimal investment opportunity for a marketing proposal with positive upside for xdai and corresponding protocols interested in co-marketing with elk finance.

Elk finance was just rewarded $125,000 in $STAKE rewards to incentives liquidity providers and thus liquidity flow to xdai. Elk is a burn and mint bridge migrating to decentralized node operators which allows liquidity flow from any of the networks they are currently operating on over a dozen supported networks including; ftm, matic, avax, bsc, moonriver, xdai and many others. Elk is using the $STAKE rewards as an opportunity to ignite some cross marketing exposure by asking protocols if they are interested in partnering in this program.

Proposal Rationale
Elk finance’s presence on multiple networks provides this as an opportunity for exposing xdai protocols to crypto enthusiasts on other networks other than just xdai. Any amount is acceptable, the time period and matching amounts are based on initial amount provided along with analyzing trading volume.

Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
The idea is $STAKE is rewarding xdai-elk and stake-elk pools. $ELK is rewarding all other pools at a rate to maintain approximately 100% APR.

Sharing of comarketing will occur in advance share all potential partners involved.

1.) Dates are still TBD but it is estimated that on Wednesday Nov 17 farms will go live and Agave will begin double rewarding the ELK single side staking for 24hrs (aprx $750).
2.) After 24hr period The AGVE-ELK pair will be Dual rewarded ELK + AGVE.
3.) An AMA with ELK community will take place potentially on Nov 18th to educate the ELK and Agave community on the farms and the protocol.
4.) dual rewards will extend for months for duration of funds and may receive additional boost from ELK depending on trading volume from partnered pairs

Will the AGVE used to fund the ELK/AGVE pair be distributed as AGVE? Or would the AGVE provided need to be swapped to ELK to provide the incentives?
As long as this doesn’t cause sell large pressure on AGVE, it is a excellent idea. I’ll keep an eye out for the vote.
I use ELK on MATIC and Fantom. It’s a nice platform and they have the ELKnet bridge between all of the several chains they are on. I agree that this is an enormous opportunity because of all the connected chains.
I look forward to hearing more and voting on this.

More partnerships = noice

They will dual reward. 100% apr in elk and 100% apr in Agve.

The idea is to have as many protocols as possible dual rewarding to vamp the other networks all while these xdai rewards begin coming online… agave, symm, elk, swpr, shushi, curve, etc
