Moonlight News

Our recent partnership with Moonlight & their unique tool 'BubbleMaps' has kicked off with our community leader Thespis jumping into an AMA with Moonlight's community this week.

We also breached their top 10 list for most used Bubblemaps:

Phase 2 of $SPARTA Burns - Complete

Massive news this week, with a grand total of 57,480,300 tokens (over 37% of the current total supply) sent to the 0x0..DEAD address closing out the token distribution phase of the project after a very long road!

This brings some major changes to the tokenomics of the project, and as seen by the token price movements following the big burn event, the Spartans consider it to be a very positive step for the project. Please read more about the big burn and it's effect on us all here

And join the convo on Twitter here:

Fallen Spartans Closed

Coinciding with the big burns and closure of the token distribution phase of the project, the remaining SPARTA in the FallenSpartans contract has now been expired too (a month or two after the due expiry date to give more time for Spartans to claim). The remaining $SPARTA has been transferred to the reserve and removed from the circulating supply.

Please note this has nothing to do with the 'upgrade' function of V1 token holders to V2 tokens. This remains open with no expiry date at this time.

V1 tokens holders can still upgrade to V2 via the DApp! No expiry date!

DEX All-Time-Highs

An exciting few days at the end of last week where we saw All-Time-High values for almost every protocol metric we can think of!

The contributors are truly excited that protocol activity is increasing across all metrics & with general growth/integration building up. The protocol was built for the community so it is rewarding to see that dream come to fruition.

CEX All-Time-Highs

The centralised exchanges didn't miss out on the action either, flippening even LUNA's massive volume on Binance as seen below! Crazy stuff! Ongoing volume like this is what we need to see if we want to work towards a stablecoin pairing on Binance.

Mainnet Global Safety Tests  

The large run-up in price triggered inbuilt systems that paused value extraction methods within the protocol (automated and as expected; without centralised reliance). The swaps remained active, allowing arbs to come in and balance pools. As Spartans have learned, arbitrage & time are crucial aspects of a balanced pool, critical in keeping the pools in a 'safe' state.

The intent of this and other similar features is to prevent nefarious value extractions from the protocol. Sometimes false positives occur such as large run-up in value as seen recently, this was totally expected and discussed as a community during the building and testnet testing processes. Amazing to see these safety features triggered and acting perfectly (and the community actioning the public function to re-enable value extraction features once pools were rebalanced)

Twitter Followers

Another ATH for the protocol is seeing 20,000 warriors join the Twitter shield wall. Let them hear our voice...

Aroo..Aroo..Aroo (Yes... 300 is our Christmas Movie!)

#FridayFor300 Quiz

With the recent big burn event, the token distribution phaseof the project is officially over. This means there will never be any more Bond allocations. The Bond program has now been retired! With that said, the DApp has a lot of calls, functions and general elements in place that are for the sole purpose of new Bonds.

Some time was allocated this week to going through every component/view and removing any of the Bond calls/functions/general bloat that are no longer required. This leaves us with a thinner DApp leading into the happy holidays so it can fill up on more Xmas ham🎅

  • Removed all Bond-related calls & txn-parse logic from the global DataManager (less RPC calls per minute)
  • Removed the Bond redux store calls from the Supply componentRemoved the reliance on Bond calls to be loaded for most isLoading() state checks (faster dapp load)
  • Commented out the parse logic in web3.js to do with 'new bond txns'
  • Removed all Bond relatedDao proposals from the front end (List/delist bond asset, new Bond allocation)
  • Deleted the whole Bond component from the Liquidity page along with any usaged of it throughout codebase

Unix Timestamp Helpers

It was noticed that the charts were displaying different 'current day' results based on different timezones (the timezone for Unix start-of-day should be constant for everyone, not varying) so the helper was modified to fix this.

  • Fixed getUnixStartOfDay() to use actual UNIX time instead of timezone adjusted based on browser
  • Added another helper to get the end-of-day unix timestamp too (might be helpful later) getUnixEndOfDay()

Donation Page - Loading State

  • Added loading state to all balances on the donation page (previously showed 'NaN' for a few seconds)

Partners Page

Quick change-up to the partners page to make it a bit more universal and balanced for general partners to be added in. This will obviously get a nicer revamp after the new DApp comes through later on but for now this is good.

  • Changed grid to 320px for 3-col layout on most devices
  • Changed the header for each card to the partner's logo instead of their name in plaintext
  • Changed the body of each card to a short explainer of each project rather than a few short words on their relevance to Spartan Protocol
  • Changed the footer to a button linking to the partner's page with the relevance to Spartan protocol in plaintext rather than the logo of the project
  • Added ONTO wallet as a partner


  • Culled any no longer required Bond calls/logic
  • Instead of showing all Bond listed assets (even if you don't hold any) this has now been changed to detect if you have any Bond positions and if not, show 'You have no active Bond positions'
  • Removed links to 'Bond TOKENp' (perform a Bond) now that its no longer relevant

Spartan Protocol is at its core, a community-driven and led project. In this vein, the more contributors the better. There is a great opportunity for community members to contribute by making LP reward analysis tools, etc.

Recently, community members have been graciously funnelling in to contribute to explainer articles, ideas and even $SPARTA donations to support the growth of the platform.‌
