  2. Proposal/Project Discussions: The following community members have volunteered to discuss the proposals and projects they are working on or considering working on.
  • Tarun Chitra - COMP vesting proposal update

Lastly, the call will be audio-recorded; the recording and written notes will be shared in this thread for anyone who can’t make it.

Hope to see you on the call tomorrow!


Thank you to everyone who was able to join the community call today!

Unfortunately my recording of the call failed to save, and very unluckily our backup recording failed as well. We’ll make sure this never happens again, and we always have successful recordings going forward.

That said, the call was vibrant and engaging. Our notes are lighter than usual, but if you have any questions/comments, the community is always happy to discuss in more detail here on or in the Compound Discord.

Compound Developer Community Call Notes

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

  • Julia Wu shared DeFi Terminal, a new app that she has been working on. The project is a web app that is built on Compound.js and the Compound API. It fetches data from the API and creates data visualizations like charts and graphs. The community had very positive feedback on the project as well as suggestions of what could be added to improve the app. In addition to Compound, the app also supports Yearn data visualizations.

  • The Gauntlet team gave a quick update of their progress. They are currently awaiting results of a professional audit. John from Gauntlet thanked the community for its continued analysis and detailed feedback on the proposed changes.

  • Sorawit, CTO of Band Protocol gave a presentation on his progress on the Open Price Feed changes. The repository of his work is here: GitHub - sorawit/open-oracle-medianizer. There was discussion on how to approach gas price issues and posting prices on chain. Getty mentioned that posting is somewhat subsidized by liquidators because it is in their best interest to post prices on chain in order to perform liquidations. In the early form of the Medianizer there will not be any new considerations to gas costs. Sorawit mentioned that the code in the repository is a rough draft and that further optimizations will be made once the community provides some feedback on the proposed implementation. Notably Jared from Compound Labs sought to encourage discussion towards using completely decentralized prices (e.g. Uniswap).

Thanks for the recap, although I’m really sad theres no recording as I skipped the live viewing.
