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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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)

The DX token registry schema page is available here. You can look at this as an example of a successfully submitted proposal.

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
Alchemy form for submitting a new proposal for adding a 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.
