We’re thrilled to announce that the Wagmi protocol has been deployed on the Kava Chain.

A brief history of Wagmi

The first version of the Wagmi protocol was launched on Zksync Era and Fantom in April of this year as a CLAMM (Concentrated Liquidity AMM). Following this deployment, we began development on V2, which introduced the multipool concentrator, GMI, and the Wagmi token. The migration from ICE began in September.

Our protocol documentation’s release and subsequent migration garnered significant attention from the community and various network foundations. In September, we established a forum where over 100 users registered within days, engaging in discussions about our first proposal for deployment and partnership with the Kava Chain.

Here is the link to our Forum where you can read the discussion about our launch.

Community voting and proposal

Following these discussions, our community participated in a vote on Snapshot. 221 wallets participated, with 56.88% voting in favor of deploying on Kava. To read the full proposal on snapshot, here is the link: Snapshot Voting

The next step involved securing approval from the Kava community and validators. The vote achieved a quorum, with over 95% in support of the proposal.

Summary of the proposal

The WAGMI DAO proposes to launch their protocol on Kava, requesting 2,898,550 KAVA tokens to bootstrap liquidity. The KAVA will be sent to the multisig address provided. In return, the WAGMI DAO will reserve 200,000,000 WAGMI tokens for Kava DAO’s future use.

We’re introducing the following initial liquidity pools on WAGMI:

  • KAVA/WAGMI
