Ooki Initiatives Planning Stages

Below are a few of the Ooki initiatives in the early discussion phases.

Railgun integration and deployment

Railgun is a privacy protocol on Ethereum and Polygon which would enable Ooki traders to trade with 100% privacy. This integration is in exploratory phase. The protocol will enable high alpha strategies to remain private from other users, in order to maintain profitability and prevent copying by other traders.

Railgun is a DAO and would offer liquidity incentives and deployment incentives if Ooki submitted an application. Depending on community interest in this integration, the Railgun integration priority can be increased or decreased. The extent to which this deployment is prioritized and the technical requirements are still under discussion.

Moonbeam integration and deployment

Moonbeam is another blockchain that Ooki is in exploratory phase of deploying on. Moonbeam is offering deployment grants and liquidity incentives. The extent to which this deployment is prioritized and the technical requirements are still under discussion.
