How to get your token listed on Mesa
Mesa is the first dapp built on Gnosis Protocol, it facilitates a general trading interface. Mesa is maintained, owned, and hosted by DXdao, an organization leading the evolution toward a more “de”-centralized DeFi.
The website is hosted on IPFS under an ENS domain (mesa.eth) owned by DXdao. New releases require a passed proposal from DXdao which makes it more secure and less prone to various hacks like domain hijacking.
Listing on Mesa is technically done through adding the token to a special on-chain list maintained by DXdao. Below we’ll explain how you should go about doing it.
This guide consists two parts:
- Creating a proposal through Alchemy for DXdao to vote for or against the listing of a token on Mesa. Creating a proposal does not guarantee it will get ratified, however DXdao believes anyone who wishes to propose something should have the tools and knowledge on how to do so.
- How to approach the DXdao community to increase the chances of your listing proposal being ratified.
A prerequisite for being listed on Mesa is adding the token to Gnosis Protocol. Anyone can do this following this tutorial.
Step 1 — Creating a listing proposal in Alchemy (DXdao’s governance interface)
In the new proposal page (Image below) those are the needed parameters:
- Title and Description — Fill in your own title and description for the proposal
- ListId: 1
- Tokens: token address of the listed token
Step 2 — Introducing the listing proposal to the DXdao community
Start a thread about your token listing on the Forum: Daotalk.org.
Let the DXdao’s community know on one of its communication channels:
The introduction is recommended to include the following information:
- A brief description of the project including the purpose of the token.
- Complete token allocation and release schedule
- Relevant links to the project’s page, team and community channels
- Link to the on chain proposal (if already created)
- Proposed collaborations with DXdao (if relevant)
- You can ask to present the project during a Monday BizDev call (if relevant)
If the DXdao community decides to list the proposed token, the on-chain proposal will be ratified.
