FreeTON Dex Implementation Stage 1 Proposal

Hi everyone,

Here is the draft for stage 1 implementation of dex proposal, feel free to give your comments and suggestions:

FreeTon DEX Implementation Stage 1 Contest Proposal

Contest dates

  • Warm-up period: mid January 2021
  • Submission Stage 1 period: 20 January(00:00:00 UTC) - 15 February(23:59:59) 2020

General description

The goal of this contest is to prove the ability of free ton blockchain to perform fast and cheap non-custodial exchange operations.

The DEX, or FreeDEX for short, should be general purpose and let the users/governance create an arbitrary number of liquidity pools, manage the order and transactions fees, support different types of referral programs and of course yielding mechanics for the participation in the dex marketing and development.

Furthermore the primary differentiator of FreeDex should be support for staking through TON depool contracts and voting using TON SMV contracts, support for TIP-3 tokens and self-governed structure of the DEX from initial launch.

Roadmap

Stages:

  1. Current. Set of dex smart contracts with debot interface
  2. Complex liquidity pool mechanics
  3. Complex automated market maker mechanics

Implementation stage 1

Stage 1 implementation should include set of open source smart contracts for TON network which would allow:

  1. Make initial distribution of governance token with the rest staying in the DEX giver
  2. Holders of governance tokens to deploy (and redeploy when needed) exchange contracts and change DEX parameters
  3. Exchange contracts supporting exchange function of two arbitrary tokens
  4. Liquidity Pool (LP) contracts to add either external liquidity through the bridges or TIP-3 tokens
  5. Exchange can be performed between two users or user and LP using AMM (automated market maker)
  6. All operations should be performed through debot interface

General contest requirements

Your submission should include:

  • The basic economic model and description of money flow in the system
  • The general technical architecture of the solution including all of the features listed below in the hard evaluation criteria section along with the proposed customer journeys
  • Detailed technical specification of the proposed implementation with the justification of the selected approach: smart contracts, integration layer, interfaces
  • Deployed implementation in Free Ton devnet with ability to test the functionality using debot interface
  • Name and contact information of the contestant for communication (Telegram username, e-mail)

Your work and the proposed solution must be:

  • Original. It should not include more than 10% of other contestants’ works;
  • Implementable. Keep in mind the peculiarities and goals of FreeTON;
  • Consistent. Its elements should not contradict each other and the FreeTON Declaration of Decentralization;
  • Safe. It must ensure a due level of funds security;
  • Modern. Inspire by the leading market solutions.

Evaluation criteria and winning conditions

Hard criteria

  • Support for non-custody exchange of any tokens within the FreeTON network
  • Support for adding liquidity to the exchange from external blockchains at least through smart contract system or using atomic swap bridges described in atomic swap contest
  • Non-custody approach to both exchange and liquidity provision
  • Support of de-bot interface for at least testing purposes

Artifacts

  • Link to github/gitlab with executable code and thorough README on how to deploy and run

Soft criteria

  • Good economics with working prototype
  • Mostly everyday English to facilitate understanding of technical paper

А почему не лям за первое место? Почти целый месяц же пыхтеть.

I propose to add to contest draft:

  • 1-year support requirement
  • iterative payment
  • free open-source license requirement
  • min avg score requirement for getting any prize

this is just the first stage. for all 4 stages it will be around 1 mln for the best work.

iterative payment is reached via stages.
1-year support I suggest can be done if we add requirement for free open-source license, giving ability for the community to make fork, if necessary.
as for min avg score agree.

Да вы с чувством юмора! Безусловно в распилах участвуют только неординарные личности.

Instead of insulting people constructive feedback is appreciated. I gave you warning!

Это конструктивный комплимент вам: “Неординарный человек с чувством юмора”.

Но обидчивый.

I don’t need your compliments or comments, thank you, there are plenty of other places for you to exercise your “sense of humor”. Here we discuss the proposal and what can be improved. The sums btw are a collective decision of defi telegram group, not mine.

proposed by a strong team svoi.dev, who developed for instance timer smart contract for Free TON, led to some arguments in the defi subgroup, on the last defi weekly call and in telegram discussion group. We reached a decision that I will try to merge their proposal with the dex, to keep the dex implementation still generic but better suited for uniswap model. Here is what came out (also added two laugans points about minimum average point and free open source license):

FreeTon DEX Implementation proposal

Contest dates

  • Warm-up period: mid January 2021
  • Submission Stage 1 period: 22 January(00:00:00 UTC) - 28 February(23:59:59) 2020

General description

The goal of this contest is to prove the ability of free ton blockchain to perform fast and cheap non-custodial exchange operations, such as exchange of tokens, loans, IOUs or other types of liabilities.

The Free TON DEX, or FreeDEX for short, should be general purpose and let the users/governance create an arbitrary number of liquidity pools, manage the order and transactions fees, support different types of referral programs and of course yielding mechanics for the participation in the dex marketing and development.

Furthermore the primary differentiator of FreeDex should be support for staking through TON depool contracts and voting using TON SMV contracts, support for TIP-3 tokens and self-governed structure of the DEX from initial launch. FreeDex can be either OB (order-book) dex, LP (liquidity provision) dex, any combination of those or any other possible yet unknown type.

Roadmap

Stages:

  1. Set of dex smart contracts (exchange, liquidity pools, etc) with mandatory debot interface and optional UI (Stage 1. Current)
  2. Complex liquidity pool mechanics (pool explorers, pool factories for LP dexes, cross margin and complex FOK IOC order for order-based dexes) (Stage 2)
  3. Complex automated market maker mechanics (Stage 3)
  4. Additional necessary improvements like UI/UX, governance mechanics, voting mechanics, yielding mechanics, etc (Stage 4)

Implementation stage 1

Stage 1 implementation should include set of open source smart contracts for TON network which would allow:

  1. Exchange contracts supporting exchange function of two arbitrary tokens, either through order book for OB dex implementation or LP for LP dex implementation
  2. OB dex should allow user to put or cancel order, LP dex to add either external liquidity through the bridges or TIP-3 tokens
  3. Exchange can be performed between two users or user and LP using AMM (automated market maker) for both OB and LP dexes
  4. All operations should be performed through debot interface but additional UI interfaces are welcome as well

Products of the work should include:

  • source code of smart contracts in a public repository
  • smart contracts deployed on the testnet
  • description of scenarios for calls of smart contract methods for main use cases
  • debot interface and/or web application interface development based on best practices of OB or LP DEXes (adding tokens to LP, exchanging, canceling, etc)

General contest requirements

Your submission should include:

  • The basic economic model and description of money flow in the system
  • The general technical architecture of the solution including all of the features listed below in the hard evaluation criteria section along with the proposed customer journeys

Так вот я и пытаюсь обсудить с вами тот факт, что вы оборзели с размерами наград. Это не лезет ни в какие рамки. За месяц работы даже целой команды эти деньги несопоставимы ни с какой приличной деятельностью.

ok, let’s count, 250k ton at current price 40c makes 100k$. For an average team of 10 people including testers, products and developers, their average cost would be around 10ppl * 5k$ = 50k$. With potential downside of ton to 20c with current volatility plus the winning team should have some margin imho. The second and third team would just recover the costs with minimum margin if at all.

The defi group decided to increase the previous standard prizes due to the fall of the token price.

That means, you don’t believe your work will increase the value of FreeTON? :slight_smile: There is no logic in it. Why the price of token should drop after your brilliant work?

me personally, I believe it will grow, especially after first defi projects go into mainstream production, but it takes time and it’s also question of the marketing, pr, market and a lot of factors that are outside of participants’ control, while the costs are arising from the start, with no guarantee for compensation.

Thank you for your feedback and a serious approach in considering and taking into account our proposal

Taking into account the level and importance of the Dex project, we propose to make the following adjustments to the current version of the draft proposal for the implementation of Dex:

  1. we consider the governance token are not that much needed at the first stage
    (i.e. let’s focus on exactly what is important for the defi)
  2. to enable other interfaces besides debot
  3. make a “ladder of rewards”
    1st place - 250
    2nd place - 225
    3rd place - 200
    4th place - 175
    5th - 150
    taking into account the complexity of the task
    or do as it was with the W&D sg contests (below certain points only stay without awards): with a table of reward depending on the points given:
  • at least a month and a half (this will allow fresh teams to join the community)

Thank you

10, почему не 20 или 30?) Был бы повод еще прибедниться. Для решения этой задачи достаточно 2-3 профессионала. Все остальные люди нужны лишь для усваивания бюджета.

agree, I was doubting regarding governance, will move it to next stages. As for rewards I will try to redistribute it towards upper places.

I have developed several matching engines and trading terminals, 2-3 people are only backend developers + ui + testing + tech analyst and tech writers, including product owner it’s closer to 10. Afaik top notch exchanges have core teams closer to 20-30 people. If 2-3 people don’t sleep, work for 3 roles and wins I personally won’t have any remorses.

moved governance mechanics to 4th stage, changed redistribution of rewards and added additional interfaces to current stage

Sorry, but based on a reasonable understanding of the work ahead, we still kindly ask:

  1. can you pls provide the ability to use not only the debot interface within the entire program, and also give an option to use other interfaces in the following as well:

a)

b)

c)

  1. We also believe that the redistribution of the prize pool between the top five winners will have an exceptionally beneficial effect on the result as follows:
    1st - 250
    2nd - 200
    3rd - 150
    4th - 100
    5th - 50
    taking into account, among other things, the term of the exclusion of the possibility of receiving prizes by teams with less than 3 av.points

  2. Taking into account the complexity of the task, we also ask very much to prolong the submission period to one and a half months.

We think that the adoption of these proposals will allow to attract more wide variety of teams to the community and get the maximum possible positive result on the project.
