Welcome to another weekly wrap-up, Spartans! Thanks to all the community contributors and friends who helped Buidl, promote and support during the week! Read on for the update.

BUIDL-Weekly: 09MAY22 - 15MAY22

SynthVault Claim Drop | SPIP-105

If you missed out on the SPIP-105 discussions, get up to date via this article. TLDR: SynthVault harvest will reduce, so make sure you harvest before each drop!

The next 1% drop will occur sometime this week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday, so please ensure you have performed a SynthVault harvest to receive the current 4% rate.

HodlersHub | Community Interview

Thanks to @HodlersHub for reaching out and interviewing some contributors from the community. And a big thanks to the community members who took the time to answer the questions, there is some cool information on distributed organisations and especially the earlier stages of the project to read up on.

OpenTheGates UST

With the volatile situation around LUNA & UST throughout the week, the UST price changes caused the SPARTA:UST liquidity caps to be reached. This led to some reactive raises of the caps:

OpenTheGates USDT

USDT also had some very brief peg troubles during the week which when combined with some SPARTA price volatility led to the pool's caps being hit. They were raised:

OpenTheGates BTCB

The BTCB pool also reached its caps and was raised accordingly:

Weekly Community Call / Hangout

Don't forget to tune into the Telegram channel each week with @ReidyPhillip to get updates on the project and broader ecosystem. Feel free to join in the discussion with any ideas and questions!

These are currently hosted every Wednesday but are subject to change based on community feedback and availability. When the time is confirmed each week we will do our best to share a reminder via the socials but this can be difficult due to the distributed nature of the project and organisers.

Weekly LearnToEarn Quiz

Congratulations to the winners of the weekly Spartan Protocol LearnToEarn quiz. The theme this week was to remind us about sustainable incentives and why we do not have a single-staking program

There is a new #LearnToEarn quiz up and live for Spartans keen to learn and win some SPARTA in the process!

Don't forget to ask in the social channels if you are not sure! The community is there to help and these quizzes are all about learning!

SpartAnalytics Report

Our community collates the public Spartan Protocol data into a PDF report each month covering Google Search (impressions, clicks, devices, keywords & geographical) & Twitter analytics. You can find the full April report here.

GitHub Activity - Spartan DApp

Swap Page

  • Added logic to handle WBNB address being handed into the URL params
  • This is especially important with the URL generated by the API which CMC & CG use and potentially display for users who are searching for listed token markets

Liquidity Page

  • Added logic to handle WBNB in the URL param (not particularly important, as we don't generate a link anywhere for this, but still handy for future-proofing)
  • Added a 'confirm asym' notification with a confirm slider button when adding or removing liquidity asymmetrically

BondVault Page

  • Changed the end date for a BondVault item to display '100% Claimed' once a user has claimed 100% of their Bond instead of continuing to show a date

Web3 Utils

  • Re-enabled the Ankr public RPC

To Do

GitHub Activity - Spartan Site

  • Created a new branch in prep for building the alternate style website

To Do

  • Create an alternative style mockup then review and build for 'A/B comparisons' with the other new website

GitHub Activity - Spartan V3 Contracts

'Init' Branch
  • Added general BEP20 functions (tsf, mint, burn etc)

GitHub Activity - Spartan Docs

To Do

GitHub Activity - Spartan <> Bram NFTs

Completed, all that remains is distribution! Please be patient and allow the contributors time to work out how these NFTs will be distributed. In the meantime please check out Bram on Twitter and show your support!

To Do

  • Distribute the NFTs

GitHub Activity - Spartan Subgraph


  • Added volRollingSPARTA && volRollingTOKEN && volRollingUSD to MetricsPoolDay entity
  • Created a new MetricsPoolHour entity to help track rolling 24hr volume as an alternative to the current behaviour where it resets to zero at the start of each day


  • Calculate the hourStart and hand in to new checkPoolMetricsHour function
  • Every time updateDayMetrics is called, run additional logic to update the metricPoolHr (this is not optimal efficiency and involves some double-handling but sync speed is still acceptable)
  • Also update the daily metricPool with a volRollingSPARTA & volRollingTOKEN & volRollingUSD which is a rolling figure and in theory should be identical to volSPART etc when the daily entity finalises and closes out, but not identical during an incomplete day (most recent) until the end of that day
  • checkPoolMetricsHour() function added to handle all the initial setup logic for each hourly 'candle' (this rolls back to the protocol's first block and builds a bunch of empty hourlies upon first pool interaction which is not optimal efficiency, but good for error handling)

GitHub Activity - Spartan API

Pool && Pools

  • Pull in new volTOKEN API call to replace the temporary volQuote figure (this gives API-callers a more exact token volume figure)

To Do

GitHub Activity - Spartan Resources

GitHub Activity - Arena Contracts

GitHub Activity - Spartan V2 Contracts
