Jorge Lopes Contributor Proposal [18 July 2022 - 18 September 2022]

Background & Retrospective:

I’ve been integrated the Swapr team for a few months now and started collaborating with them to extend its functionalities, working with the EcoRouter in particular.

Positive: I have been involved in several small features, spreading from refresh quotes to work on curve pools and adding the optimism chain. At this point I am working on a few bug fixes. ETHCC Paris was also a great opportunity to gain perspective. I talked to a variety of people and gained some understanding of how the community views DXDao and what we do.
To improve: Despite my efforts to expose myself to as much of the project as possible, my lack of web development background is noticeable. It was suggested that I do a few courses and attempt to explore web dev projects. As well as improve my response time.
For the future: Although I have developer experience, it is not specific to web development. The plan for the near future is to get acquainted with the tools we are using. After javascript I intend to explore React courses. On the long term, after establishing as a productive member of the team, I’d like to learn Solidity and contribute according to the needs of the DAO.

Proposed Scope of Contribution:

  • Fix curve pools
  • Add a new network to ecoRouter - Optimism
  • Pick and fix 1/2 issues from the backlog
  • Further deepen knowledge in frontend tools as well as web3 ecosystem


  • Collaboration with the existing Swapr team
  • PR review and low-level design decision
  • Software development
