Neptune Mutual Protocol Update

Following the launch of vote escrow and the liquidity gauge pool on the Polygon Mumbai testnet, the features are now live on the mainnet of the Arbitrum network. The launch on the mainnet was announced on our official Twitter account on April 12.

LPs on the Arbitrum network can now lock their NPM tokens to receive veNPM for boosted voting power that can influence NPM token emissions in their favor.

Speaking of NPM emissions, snapshot voting was open for gauge controller Epoch #1. It was to emit and distribute a total of 375,000 NPM tokens to Prime dApps and Popular dApps on Arbitrum.

The voting was open for 10 days, from April 17th to April 27th. During the period, NPM and veNPM holders could vote on the Snapshot platform to influence how the 375,000 of NPM tokens would be distributed across the pools. As the voting has ended, the gauge controller will allocate the NPM emissions to the respective pools. LPs who lock their POD tokens will be eligible to receive NPM emissions.

We have published two helpful tutorial videos relating to vote escrow and liquidity gauge pools on the following topics:

  1. Navigating the veNPM and Liquidity Gauge Features
