During this period

DXD Buyback

  • Put the Gnosis Provotol v1 solvers on autopilot. We have the solver and price estimator running on DigitalOcean.

Swapr Dapp

  • Helped Milan onboard The Graph and started contributing to subgraphs
  • Moved Swapr subgraph repo to DXgraphs organization. Anyone with access to the GitHub org can now deploy and update subgraphs; less dependency on a single developer.
  • Worked on the Single-Sided Staking Campaigns implementation for Swapr’s subgraph
  • Prepared and helped Swapr SDK v0.11.0
  • Updated all Swapr subgraphs to the new versions with Single-Sided Staking campaigns. Current endpoints are

  • Added ENS avatar support to user nav menu

  • Added Curve Finance for xDAI and Arbitrum One. A working demo can be deployed at
  • Migrated the new code to the new SDK version. Coming with Curve Finance implementation).
  • Added Curve Finance (including mainnet) to the Eco Router, still pending some finalization and a PR review.

Misc

  • Reached out to a few audit firms regarding Aqua. Potentially not happen until Q2 2022.

Done well

  • Buyback program: running the GPv1 solvers is completely on autopilot. I do not do much about it, except for cleaning old logs periodically and checking health status.
  • Onboarding and helping Milan to start helping with The Graph.
  • Helped with the Single-Sided Staking campaign subgraph.

Could have done better

  • I could not do many code reviews because of the time constraints on my own tasks
  • I failed on the Accountability document. Again, due to time constraints…
