On-chain proposal: No on-chain proposal yet. Will be created shortly.


As a Karura user, I think we should list Aris/kUSD, and Karura foundation should only provide KAR ( or kUSD ) incentive for kUSD/x-tokens LP pool.



The result of the community vote is to enable the ARIS/KSM pair first, and the voting has closed, enabling the ARIS/KUSD pair can be done at a later date.
