Protocol Sweep

Maestros, bringing you the protocol revenue results for the month of November:

At the time of collection, fees totaled $30.0k.

Tech

Tech, tech, and more TECH. The Beets dev crew have had their heads down, fine-tuning, oiling up, and upgrading the beautiful machine that is Beethoven X. This week it's time to push some under-the-hood upgrades.

First up, here's an exciting one for all you analytics junkies out there. Beethoven X is now supported on Token Terminal. For those of you who don't know Token Terminal is an on-chain data platform providing tools to track and evaluate your favorite crypto protocols/chains. It's time to dive into some never-before-seen analytics.

Next, and the first of our under-the-hood upgrades, this week Beethoven X will be integrating Mimic into its operations processes. Mimic is a decentralized platform that models and automates DeFi operations for some of the biggest players in crypto, including Balancer, 1inch, Paraswap, and The Graph. Beethoven X will use Mimic to automatically sweep and sell pool transaction fees.

And last but not least, this week the Smart Order Router should be seeing a fresh lick of paint with its latest upgrade. She’ll now be running smoother than ever with faster responses and routes with more hops.
