List iBTC/aUSD pair on Acala Swap and incentive program for iBTC/aUSD liquidity providers


This proposal will start the bootstrapping period for trading pair iBTC/aUSD on Acala Swap.


  • Enable Bootstrap for iBTC/aUSD pool at block #1623724 (est. 2022/08/11 14:00 UTC)
  • 48 hours of bootstrapping period ends at #1638124 (est. 2022/08/13 14:00 UTC)
  • Minimum liquidity target is 1.1 iBTC OR 25,000 aUSD
  • Minimum contribution requirement is 0.0003 iBTC OR 5 aUSD

No trading is allowed during Bootstrap, and trading can only be enabled once the following criteria are met:

  • The Not Before block #1638124 (est. 2022/08/13 14:00 UTC) has passed AND
  • Either the pool has 1.1 iBTC OR 25,000 aUSD in liquidity
  • Both iBTC & aUSD have >0 liquidity

If this referendum passes, and Bootstrap kicks off:

  • It will start at block #1623724 til #1638124 (roughly 48 hours)
  • NO trading is allowed during this period
  • You can contribute liquidity for iBTC, or aUSD, or iBTC & aUSD at the same time. The actual exchange rate of iBTC/aUSD can only be known once the Bootstrap is completed .
  • At the time of your contribution, you are allocated a number of LP tokens, and indicative LP shares of the pool, which are subject to change as more liquidity is added.
  • You should only participate if you want to become a liquidity provider for the pool. Please be aware of various risks associated with being a liquidity provider.
  • If you just want to trade, then please wait till the trading is enabled.

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

The post says an on-chain proposal would be created, but to my knowledge this never happened. This proposal was implemented without any on-chain vote. How was this possible? If the community were able to analyse the on-chain proposal and hold a vote then perhaps the damage from this buggy listing could have been avoided.


100% agree

This should be one of the first proposals being made for governance after the operations are fully resumed:
Any new LP being introduced should pass a community proposal, where the users can review a decoded metadata of:
tokens included
rewards included (and their ratios, applicable)
