Hi Everyone,

This proposal has been a long time running and has required me to have meetings with quite a few market makers in the past 4-6 months. I was introduced to a major MM company often used on Binance and recommended by them, WinterMute. Their requirements at this stage are out of budget as we would need over a million dollars in liquidity excluding their fee. Market making is a norm of practice for all exchanges that provide orders to facilitate trades. If it is done in a correct manner it also attracts others that run trading bots as well as other investors. If we can establish a healthy market it also assists with payment providers that use Binance as a gateway such as NowPayments and other swap aggregators. Keeping spread down is key to growth.

The guys from CoinAlpha have worked with us well over 2 cycles now to provide a liquidity mining campaign on their Hummingbot Miner Platform. This has attracted new investors, stabilized our markets and provided much needed liquidity to facilitate healthy trades. After some initial research by them they have recommendeded a MM strategy that provides the required liquidity as well as trades in a way to attract new investors and other trading bots. The strategy would be deployed by CoinAlpha's wholly owned Malaysian subsidiary, Armada Labs.

Why do we need a market maker on Binance?
Market making is a requirement set by all exchanges, I have made it clear to Binance that we aim to get a PIVX/USDT pair. The requirements provided by them was a more attractive market that consisted of healthy liquidity and an active order book. This market making will assist with meeting this requirement. I will then proceed to discuss this pair again and see if additional requirements are in place.

We will start at the minimum liquidity amount which will be held in custody by CoinAlpha but will always be owned by the PIVX DAO. This amounts to 20K USD worth of BTC and 20K USD worth of PIVX. They will also offer us a discounted service fee of $2000 monthly.
I will use this proposal to cover 3 months initially of this service fee. Due to the size of this proposal I will divide it over 2 cycles. Should price change drastically I may need to submit a top up or if I have remaining funds they will be used towards future proposals to minus down from the amount requested.

Liquidity - 40K USD ( 188,292 PIVX)
Service Fees - 6K USD ( 28,246 PIVX)
Due to volatility and potential price change within these 2 cycles I will also ask for an additional 10% - 4600 USD (21,648 PIVX)
Submission fees - 50 PIVX
Total - 238 236 PIVX (119 118 PIVX / cycle)

I will be sharing some additional information from them once provided but will proceed to submit this.

Thank you for all your support. Lets keep building

Please note any and all market making activities are done via Armada Labs. Due to previous dealings with coinalpha for the HummingBot campaign their name was specified. However this entity does not receive payment or instruction for taking out market making activity

The lack of any discussion here is worrying, are people starting to think that their opinion is not important? It's already been liked by the two 'king-makers' so we may aswell accept that its going to happen and move on.

Our recent community campaign with them attained over 3 million dollars of volume that supported liquidity and reduced spreads. This is based on their public campaign which you can see some stats here provided by them for the past 30 days

This extra liquidity and support in reducing spread is what got us the Binance USDT pair. This is a condition they made known. Now we can aim bigger and get direct MM from the company that runs hummungbot and in doing that aim for bigger integrations of services such as Binance Pay and futures in due time
Hey all there will be some updates to this , As we did get a USDT pair the MM wil be switched to the USDT pair. The market making is also done by a subsidiary so that will be edited in too.
Lastly someone suggested that now that we are priced higher and there are funds remaining likely after this to use it all for liquidity. If price remains the same we will meet their recommended liquidity and provide for a much healthier market therefore I will utilise all cycle funds towards liquidity. As discussed with them in my meeting today. This will also likely be used on our other exchanges to improve our liquidity etc
