Shoyu Tech Update – The Indexer:
0xSalman gave us a breakdown of Shoyu’s Indexer. In a nutshell, Indexer indexes. To understand the importance of this we must consider the incredible feat at hand.
The NFT-scape is vast and scattered. To find all the NFTs on a blockchain without an indexing solution would be slow and cumbersome and detract from the experience of Shoyu. The alternative to the indexer is reliance on external nodes via RPCs. This is fine for many protocols and practically all end-users. In fact, we are all here enjoying Sushi’s services thanks to decentralized nodes containing the on-chain public ledgers, but for a serious ecosystem like Sushi, it only makes sense to maintain its own internal nodes. And that is what Sushi has done. The Indexer takes this one step further.
The Indexer takes the blocks from the node, pulls the NFT data – ignoring the other on-chain garbage – and catalogues it. This indexed data is stored on fast and reliable data servers that The Indexer continually updates from the in-house node. This well catalogued, fast serving library will allow Sushi to deliver a superior experience to Shoyu users.
This is what The Indexer brings us.
The first 41 minutes of the Sushi Forum #85 contain all the details put forward by 0xSalman and can be found here:
Other News of the Week:
Carbon offsetting with KlimaDAO:
KlimaDAO x Sushi Carbon Offset Integration Signal has passed the Snapshot. This means further work will be underway to introduce a carbon offsetting opt-in feature on the DEX. Did we save the planet? Probably not, but it might be a step in the right direction.
Multisig Member Rotation:
A quick discussion about rotating the signers of the multisig occurred again on the forum. The proposal currently has 20 votes for bringing in some fresh and engaged signers, and rotating out some of the less interested signers. This proposal will likely go to snapshot soon. If you think there’s a good reason to keep the afk-signers on the multisig, go make your argument on the forum while you still have a chance.
Migrator Death Trap:
It has been pointed out on the forum that the migrator leaves people open to MEV arbitrage bots scooping up their tokens. The Sushi team is looking to fix/replace the migrator to make it more useable. In the interim the team is looking to put some warnings in place to make unfamiliar users aware that there is no protection from slippage on the migrator.
SushiGuard is up and running. You can toggle it off-and-on in the settings wheel on swaps. It is a sad day for MEV-Bots, but a good day for Sushi!
Nabe – A Community Metaverse Proposal:
Briefly touched on the forum call was the Nabe proposal put forward on the Sushi Forum. This proposal was put together by the team of Party.Space. To summarize in brief, Sushi needs a 3d interactive metaverse to allow Sushi degens to engage more with each other… a Sushiverse?
Nabe – presumably short for neighbourhood – would be this space. Check out some of the links to other metaverses put together by Party.Space and discuss their proposal on the from the Sushi Forum
