Smarty with the help of the CEC are actively removing scammers/bots Unfortunately this continues to be a daily activity.

Community

Feedback channel was opened to get feedback and improvement ideas directly from the community and users. A first cut was made, with a first document prepared collecting more than 5 feedbacks and they were presented to the team through Benny. Users were given a response directly in the feedback channel. We think it was a good first impression and we want all users to join this channel to make Across better for everyone.

The committee has been assisting over on the technical team providing support to other relayers and aspiring relayers in the relayers channel, he also provides support in support tickets and the developer channel

Snapshot strategies
Britt launched a task to create the Across strategies in snapshot that are still missing and be able to obtain voting power wherever an ACX exists.

More details here: ⁠

We took the task of organizing a chat group with those users who were willing to accept the challenge. Currently Excluded The following “flavors” of ACX are NOT currently captured in our set of Snapshot strategies:

  • ACX pooled on Uniswap (LP token)
  • ACX pooled on Balancer (LP token)
  • ACX pooled on Velodrome (LP token on OP)
  • Staked 50wstETH-50ACX
  • Unclaimed ACX rewards earned on staked USDT, 50wstETH-50ACX
  • Unclaimed referral rewards

Of these excluded strategies, we managed to do these (These strategies still have to be approved by someone on the team):

  • Staked 50wstETH-50ACX in Across
  • Staked 50wstETH-50ACX in Balancer
  • Unclaimed ACX rewards earned on staked USDT, 50wstETH-50ACX

This included hard teamwork, since a lot of information and even programming were needed.

Currently waiting for feedback from the team to be able to verify that the work done is correct and to be able to continue.

The committee assisted Pooltogether team in adding funding to the Risk Labs relayer and to the Across POOL LP to increase POOL token bridge liquidity. Communicated between Across development team and Pooltogether community. If Pooltogether’s new launch is successful, then Across will be a big player in moving POOL cross chain. There will be a POOL staking pool on each chain where Pooltogether is live and they have 5 new chains to be added on top of the current lineup of Optimism, BASE, Arbitrum, and Ethereum. Pooltogether is a prize saving account where you can forgo your interest without risking your principal and the interest is awarded as prizes.
