On November 1, 2023, Uniswap Foundation publicized the selections for the first round of Request for Proposals (RFPs) for Uniswap V4 through their official Twitter handle, @UniswapFND. The announcement is a significant stride towards enhancing Uniswap V4, with several teams and projects earmarked to contribute various improvements to the protocol.
The first RFP, titled “Provide Liquidity Widget,” has been awarded to the team Polya (@polya_ai). The primary objective of this RFP is to develop a Deposit Liquidity Widget that would facilitate easy integration across a myriad of front-end platforms.
The second RFP for creating an Open-Source Design Package for Uniswap’s LP User Experience has been given to Airfoil Studio (@AirfoilStudio). The project aims at creating comprehensive supporting documentation for hook developers along with a sample set of Proof of Concept (POC) hooks to enhance the Liquidity Provider (LP) user experience on Uniswap.
For the third RFP concerning POC Hook Developer Docs, the responsibility has been shared between two teams: Umbrella Labs (@0xUmbrella) and Brokkr (@BrokkrFinance). The focus here is to compile a robust set of POC hooks complemented by comprehensive supporting documentation for the developer community.
The fourth RFP is centered on research regarding the appearance of bad hooks and has been awarded to Robert Chen from Ottersec (@NotDeGhost), Composable Security (@Composable_Sec), and BlockSec (@BlockSecTeam). This RFP is directed towards exploring the “malicious design space” of hooks, and understanding how protocol stakeholders should reason about their security to prevent potential threats.
Uniswap Foundation expressed its enthusiasm towards the innovative contributions these selected teams are expected to bring to the Uniswap ecosystem. The Foundation also extended its gratitude to all the applicants and hinted at future RFP opportunities, underscoring the high-quality submissions they received which made the selection process highly competitive.
