As a result of the last voting, the community of Graviton approved a proposal called Pathway that stipulates the usage of its treasury assets for market making of the governance token GTON, in accordance with the parameters and expectations that seem realistic for the majority of token holders. Following this governance decision, the team began deeper research into the implementation of Pathway for Graviton.

At the moment, we envision a four-phase introduction of Pathway:

  • Semi-automated approach (Stage 0)
  • Automated approach based on a centralized backend (Stage 1)
  • Automated through smart contracts (Stage 2)
  • Automated through smart contracts and fully calibrated…

In this article, I present PATHWAY, a protocol for automated market making of DAO projects, and propose to put it into practice for Graviton treasury fund management.


Market Making

Launching a tokenized project in the field of decentralized finance necessitates bootstrapping initial liquidity for the new token and keeping a large enough backing for sustainable and efficient market making. A multitude of such projects launch via a direct token sale or an initial DEX offering. In many instances, the project’s team itself is not willing to engage in market making, and it unfolds either organically (mainly on AMM decentralized exchanges) or with…

Graviton governance is set in motion through treasury farming, a novel concept that revolves around self-financing of decentralized development and issuance of a governance token. This article briefly describes the mechanics of farming as it unfolds in the Treasury of the Graviton project.

At its core, Graviton treasury uses Ethereum as a primary blockchain, with a range of 8 preselected liquid USD-pegged stablecoins. Treasury backers can deposit a stablecoin into the treasury by transferring it to a multisig contract based on Gnosis Safe. …

This article is part of Gravity documentation that pertains to the technical aspects of the protocol and network. It provides an all-encompassing, example-based overview that demonstrates what a developer may encounter when integrating a new blockchain into the Gravity crosschain network, using Ethereum & BSC integrations as an example.

Writing extensions

In order to extend the Gravity Protocol by adding support for a new blockchain, a sequence of several commits is expected into Gravity-Tech/gravity-core and a few other Github repositories mentioned throughout this article. These source modifications can be divided into four parts:

  1. Gravity Ledger Node logic (adaptor)
  2. Gravity Oracle logic
  3. Gravity…

In this article, we’re introducing the integration of Binance Smart Chain testnet to the Gravity test framework via an Ankr node, focusing on the key steps of incorporating a new target chain into the network.

Gravity’s recently launched devnet version is designed for public testing of upcoming Gravity updates to maintain compatibility and synchronization with regularly updated integrated networks.

One of the crucial ideas that can help retain blockchain agnosticism of the protocol is the integration of a wide range of major target chains, besides Ethereum and Waves, which have been part of the network since the start. …
