Co-Marketing with xDai and Elk Finance

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.

Why use elk finance for this and not just honeyswap or another dex?

Because elk finance is interested in supporting the work required to manage and execute this program which is mutually beneficial to all protocols. All that is needed from your project is the matching rewards + standard marketing of tweets, articles, videos whatever you are willing and interested in publishing.

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. Elk will be partnering with as many protocols interested in providing some amount of incentives such as $5,000 which would dual reward the ELK staking token for only 24hrs ($750). As theses rewards begin to expire a 2nd partner will come in and begin to reward a similar amount of their token over same time period. At the expiration of the first token partnership incentive (for ex $AGVE). ELK will begin boosting the partnered-ELK pair for aproximatly 7-14 days. This will result in high APRs for the partnered token which will be observed by those staking the ELK token also while traffic significantly increases on the STAKE-ELK and xDAI-ELK pair. As new partners rotate through the program they would see these projects receiving high rewards and would provide marketing and network exposure.

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.

STAKE incentives could begin as early as next week and would be an optimal time for beginning these rewards.

Sequence of Events:

  • Stake rewards go live for several days. As liquidity flows in this may benefit other farm pairs Elk may adjust rewards as needed to keep APRs ~100%
  • Partnered project provides 2x boost to the elk staking for 24hr time ($750). Elk markets this
  • On the same day a date for an ama is announced (1hive could tie in trivia during this time)
  • on the same day a 1 page article talking about the partner is released.
  • The next day the partnered-elk pair is 2x rewarded for aprx 1 month
  • AMA during the 2x reward period
  • ELK will continue to provide rewards for 6 months
  • Elk will come in to boost up to 3x if liquidity and volume flows in


How Much HNY Should we Consider?

  • $2,500

It looks a good one to explore… let’s look into it sir…$5000 wouldn’t be too small to start with

It is a very good idea or proposal, and the way you describe it is adequate !! great job

We need more of this!

It seems to me a very good idea, exposing the clear advantages of what this change can bring. :grinning:

This will be very beneficial to both parties because New Moose are ready to be set loose! xDai Moose NFTs go on sale this Saturday, with proceeds used to fund Elk’s upcoming Arbitrum launch. So the earlier the better

These types of partnerships are imperative to extend the 1Hive reach and bring liquidity and visibility. While 1Hive does have, in my mind, the top DAO on xDAI, I think bringing others into the fold and adopting the mutual support attitude, characteristic of chains that scale, that it would be in our best interest to embrace this.

There’s such competition in the sidechain space that I know LP token holders who won’t look at a pool without a 100% APR so keeping the push to keep up is a worthwhile exercise to attraction top liquidity providers.

I use ELK on Polygon and Fantom and it is a great DEX.
This is a huge opportunity for 1hive to attract some attention from other chains. I voted for $5000 for this reason.
I can probably help with some of social media push when this happens (depending on timing).

Agreed here, $5,000 is a small price to pay to bring some additional eyes to 1Hive. I’m all for it.

As many of you know elk-Hny has been funded $5k Hny and elk has funded the pair approximately 6months x 55 elk/day ~ $25k.

I would propose a second round but this time with xCOMB-elk. What’s the sentiment on this?

Note that a fox-Hny farm paid in approximately 350,000 fox over the next 6 months plus some other additional details is expected to start in the next few weeks.

  • Yes, elk-xcomb
  • No, farms
  • Yes, both elk-Hny & elk-xcomb
  • Yes, but Hny-elk only
