Dolomite’s proposal to the Arbitrum Short-Term Incentive Program successfully passed this October! The Arbitrum Short-Term Incentive Program comprises up to a 50,000,000 ARB budget earmarked for incentive grants for eligible protocols. To succeed, an application must reach a 71.51M ARB Quorum and receive more than 50% of votes in favor of the proposal. As a part of the proposal, Dolomite will receive 1 million $ARB to incentivize liquidity on the platform.

Dolomite plans is use the awarded $ARB to increase total value locked on the Dolomite platform to underwrite loans for larger positions. The Dolomite platform has frequently brushed up against liquidity caps and has grown to $7M — $8M in TVL without any use of incentives. If the Dolomite team can leverage the recent award from Arbitrum to reach $15M in TVL, the Dolomite platform will be cemented as the third largest lending protocol on Arbitrum!
