TL;DR:

Ouroboros Research has proposed a plan to monitor and report on the use of grant funds across 30 projects under the Arbitrum Short-Term Incentive Program (STIP) Data Monitoring and Reporting RFP, including the creation of an open-source dashboard and analytics tooling. The community is actively engaged in the discussion, with the proposal seen as a positive step towards transparency and accountability, despite concerns about the omission of certain aspects like wash trading and team farming.

What is this about?

This discussion revolves around the Arbitrum Short-Term Incentive Program (STIP) Data Monitoring and Reporting RFP. Ouroboros Research has proposed a plan to monitor and report on the use of grant funds across 30 projects. The proposal includes the creation of an open-source dashboard and analytics tooling, bi-weekly reporting to the Arbitrum Community, and a final impact report. The proposed team for the project includes 0xRamen (head of research) and three other analysts (0xMize, FabulousDegen, and 0xVega)..) The total request for the project is 100k ARB, with payment to be made in three milestones1.

How is the community reacting?

The community is actively engaged in the discussion. 0xRamen has proposed a plan to build two dashboards: an Impact Dashboard and a Claimant Dashboard, to understand the effectiveness of the grants in incentivizing activity, the stickiness of users once incentivization activity ends, and whether the funds are fully utilized1. Longshortleftight has expressed interest in undertaking the project for 50% of the ARB request3. Burns has asked 0xRamen several questions about their proposal, including what metrics will be shown in the dashboard, whether grant matching and ROIs will be tracked, what the final report will cover, the team's experience in data analysis, and their capacity to work on the project4.

Why this is positive?

The proposal by Ouroboros Research is a positive step towards ensuring transparency and accountability in the use of grant funds. The proposed dashboards will provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of the grants and the behavior of users. The team's experience in data analysis and their commitment to provide actionable recommendations for future incentive programs is also a positive aspect5.

Why this is negative?

The proposal does not cover certain aspects such as wash trading or team farming. This could potentially limit the comprehensiveness of the monitoring and reporting process. Additionally, the project's success depends on the team's ability to blend on-chain data with reported data from grantees to formulate a full picture, which could be challenging1.
