#LearnToEarn Quiz #011
Winners have been drawn for the 11th Spartan Protocol #LearnToEarn quiz with the question:
What does the DAO proposal 'ADD_CURATED_POOL' do?
This proposal upgrades a normal liquidity pool into a 'Curated' pool, enabling it for extra features such as:
- DaoVault Staking
- DAO proposal weight
- Enables Synths for that asset (And the SynthVault of course)
Learn more in the docs here.
New #FridayFor300 Quiz
The new quiz then kicked off with a new topic involving a fancy Router function.
Which Router function swaps your LP tokens for a different pool's LP tokens? ie. Swap BNBp -> BUSDp?
If you are scared by the question, don't be! It's multichoice and there is a hint which links you literally directly to the answer in the source code. This quiz is currently open and will remain open until ~Thursday so feel free to jump on & answer the question to be in the running for a SPARTA prize!
Community, Community, Community
I know we rattle on about it in here, but we should all live and breathe the open-source, distributed community foundations of this project. We should be proud and motivated by the fact that everything that has been built and is being built is by contributors from the community of all shapes and sizes.
Weekly Community Calls
Thespis is out there every week, fighting for the community and helping in a lot of ways, especially with community motivation and education/communication. One of these ways is the weekly community hangout that he hosts.
If you arent aware Spartans, it's hosted every Friday via the community Discord!

Open The Gates! $BUSD:$SPARTA
Thanks to Leonidas I for pre-empting the liquidity caps being breached in the BUSD pool this week. Caps were raised today to let in more liquidity after assessing the pools.
Physical NFT Drum Giveaway
Our in-house chair-hater @ReidyPhillip (aka Thespis) & community rallying powerhouse has gone ahead and had a unique handmade drum made to give away to a lucky Spartan community member! Follow the Gleam.io link in the tweet to get involved.
Some creativity & fun is recommended here in answering the tasks/questions, this drum is a massive prize and a huge symbol of Spartan pride & devotion. Show your alignment with Spartan Protocol by telling us what you love about it!
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 December report here.
The January report should be ready next week which will probably not be as 'off-the-charts' as December with the bear run in the market and also changes to the documentation URLs/SEO which will take some time to recover and build back up.
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!
- Plan & distribute the NFTs
GitHub Activity - Spartan UI Library
This component library has taken a bit of a back seat for now with a focus on cleaning up the existing DApp repo instead of rushing this one. Contributors can come back to this & work towards the initial plan of making it a whole component UI library (for all community DApps, not just the current one) instead of the in-between phase that it was becoming (the partial work will shift from here to a branch on the DApp repo soon for the DApp-refresh phase to continue)
Hence the below to-do list is now pointing towards what was previously meant to be the 'next stage':
GitHub Activity - Spartan Docs
Major update on the documentation repo this week with a few contributors putting sole focus into it for the week. It is now live here.
Completed this week:
- Added favicon, metadata, opengraph etc (header work)
- Added 'tabs' plugin
- Text content & guides for 'DAO' section
- Text content & guides for 'Positions' section
- Text content & guides for 'Vaults/Staking' section
- Text content & guides for 'Synths' section
- Text content & guides for 'Swap' section
- Text content & guides for 'Liquidity' section
- Text content & guides for 'Getting Started' section
- Text content & guides for 'Introduction' section
- Deployed live to public 'docs.spartanprotocol.org' domain
The focus will come off the docs a little now and be redirected back at the new website/landing page again. However, we still need a lot of ongoing help to continue expanding and improving the docs if more contributors are up for it. See below what we need!
Need help with all sections ranging from grammar/spelling to copy-content creation, graphics (need to make it more visually appealing now!), to video versions of the text guides (these would be great under each relevant section), text guides and so on.
Some GitHub tasks are setup here:
After Coinbase Wallet integration:
GitHub Activity - Spartan DApp
This week we had some changes across the DApp mainly to do with making sure all the new docs links are correct so that there are no broken or missing links since the change-over.
GitHub Activity - Spartan Subgraph
The sync was finally completed this week, got a few changes lined up but won't merge them and redeploy for probably a month or so, don't want to waste weeks waiting for it to sync small changes again so changes to the subgraph will be less frequent from now on.
GitHub Activity - Spartan Resources
No activity in this repo for the week.
GitHub Activity - Spartan Site
Nothing merged into the pending 'new-one-pager' branch this week for the new Spartan Protocol landing page / website. However, this will become a focus again with the documentation reaching a level that's suitable to make public/live.
GitHub Activity - Spartan Arena Contracts
No public Github activity on the NFT/Gaming contracts this week.
GitHub Activity - Spartan API
No public Github activity on the API this week.
GitHub Activity - Spartan Contracts
No public Github activity on the DeFi contracts this week.

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.
