Objective:

This proposal aims to outline the potential listing of the innovative rToken - $rManta - on the rLaunchpad program. Additionally, it proposes the creation of the rManta to initiate a liquidity pool and showcase the diverse use cases of the $Manta token within the StaFi and Manta ecosystem.

Proposal to StaFi DAO

  1. Initial Liquidity for Manta
    The Manta team is happy to provide initial liquidity to bootstrap Liquid staking pool for rManta token.

  2. Future incentives to drive users
    Manta team is happy to involve user engagement with some campaigns which can help to bring users to StaFi and deposit their Manta tokens to get rManta. Apart from the normal staking rewards, we will plan some more incentives for the users so they can be attracted.

  3. Additional support in future
    Based on the TVL after launching rManta, We will provide more support in terms of liquidity and incentives to the users so the growth can be sustained and partnership can be built more strongly.

  4. Marketing and PR
    As Manta is now the third largest L2, we would like to push our partnership strongly to our 1m+ community members and holders of Manta tokens.

Integration on rLaunchpad:

The integration of $Manta on the rLaunchpad program is intended to achieve the following goals:

  1. Expand StaFi’s Ecosystem Coverage:
    Introducing $Manta extends StaFi’s reach into various ecosystems, enriching its presence in DeFi sectors such as leveraged yield farming, liquid staking, and on-chain derivatives. The adoption of the $Manta token will bring more users to the ecosystem for staking and getting rewards on their holding.

  2. Enhance rToken Utility:
    By incorporating $Manta, we seek to drive higher staking volume and foster capital appreciation for rToken holders, thereby increasing the overall utility of the rToken ecosystem. We will plan some incentives programs so the users will stake $manta to get rManta out of it.

  3. Boost Community Involvement:
    Integration with rLaunchpad features incentivizes community participation, creating an environment that encourages deeper engagement. This initiative aims to attract new community members while strengthening the bond between StaFi and its user base.

Use Case

  1. Staking Rewards:
    Users staking $Manta in the DAO will be eligible for rewards, fostering active participation and long-term commitment.

  2. Liquidity Mining:
    The DAO will implement a liquidity mining program to incentivize users to contribute liquidity to the $Manta liquidity pool, thereby enhancing the overall liquidity of the token.

  3. rManta as the collateral in lending market on Manta Pacific
    rManta can be used as collateral in lending marketing in Manta ecosystem like LayerBank and shoebill

  4. rManta can be paired in Dexes
    rManta can be paired with $Manta token in DEXes like Quickswap / Aperture / Izumi to have liquidity for users to gain multi-layer of yields

Final Statement

Since its launch in late September 2023, the Total Value Locked (TVL) of the Manta Network has been experiencing rapid growth, with its primary user base coming from 12 regional communities. Currently, Manta boasts a market cap exceeding $929,809,967 and has forged partnerships with more than 400 partners and ecosystem projects. The Current TVL of Manta is $1.7B+ with a share of 8.5% in overall L2 market. The integration of rManta on the rLaunchpad program, coupled with the establishment of the Manta Ecosystem. This represents a strategic move to drive StaFi protocol adoption, enhance community engagement, and provide tangible benefits to rToken holders. We invite the StaFi community to participate in shaping the future of the rManta ecosystem through active involvement in the proposed rManta.

I wholeheartedly support this proposal. Having personally engaged in Manta Network’s staking, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed exploring its ecosystem and have been fortunate to receive $manta airdrop as well. The remarkable achievements and rapid growth of Manta Network are truly impressive, as evidenced by the Defillama statistics. In just a month, the Total Value Locked (TVL) has surged from $14 million to an astounding $400 million.

I am convinced that the introduction of $rMANTA on the rLaunchpad would be mutually beneficial for both protocols. This strategic move has the potential to create a positive impact and foster collaboration, ultimately contributing to the success of both project.

I think the objective of listing the rToken - $rManta - on the rLaunchpad program is clear and compelling. It would enable Manta token holders to access the liquidity and flexibility of rTokens, while also increasing the demand and utility for rToken holders in the process. It would also showcase the innovation and interoperability of both platforms and attract more users and developers to the cross-chain staking derivatives ecosystem. I fully support.
