“However liquidity mining
and impression mining incentives were zero this month,
which have historically been a large cost.”
How come no rewards were paid out for Impression Mining for the month of March?

@Finance.Nest -
Thanks for these reports. I find them to be informative and easy to read. As I look to learn more, it is possible to post up an outline or a links to any operational / investment accounts? I am not looking for a balance sheet or statement of cashflows, but it would be interesting to know where to look if I want to get a better picture of flows in and out of accounts.
thanks

Hi @shawn16400,

Do note: The vast majority of transactions are related to the launch of products GMI and icETH, and in providing POL. There is also this github directory which probably is out of date now, but should contain all the wallets addresses. We only just created the POL account and will be moving POL from the Operations Account to the POL Account in time. This will reduce the amount of capital held in one wallet along with a number of other benefits.

Index Coop 2022 Q1 Financial Review

Finance Nest is pleased to present the 2022 Q1 financial review for the Index Coop! The report takes a deep dive into the Index Coop financials and performance looking back over the last 3 months.

Here is the pdf version of the report:
Index Coop Q1 2022 Financial Report (3).pdf (4.9 MB)

Or alternatively, grab yourself a hot or cold drink and join your favourite hosts @Hammad1412 and @ElliottWatts to run you through a high level overview of the report.

Below we provide some key highlights from the Q1 financial review.

  • Revenue totaled $877K, down 56% from the previous quarter

  • Total Q1 loss stands at $1.7M

  • The largest contributor to revenue to date is ETH2x-FLI accounting for 59% of the total revenue

  • Our community treasury stands at $42.5M ($INDEX makes up 77%)

  • We have released 7 new products since the last quarter!

  • Total TVL is down 33% from Q4 from $362.5M to $239.2M

  • We have also seen aggregate trading volume on a 7 day moving average drop to $4.43M a 59% decrease

  • Total unit supply for all products increased from 1.9M units at the end of December to 2.9M at the end of March, largely due to the launch of our FLI product suite on polygon. This has accounted for nearly 1M units in March.

  • For season 1 and the first two months of Q1 we have seen an average of $268k worth of spend being paid in stablecoins
  • Stablecoin holdings are $8.7M
  • 33 month stablecoin runway, calculated at the gross burn rate - treasury tables / stables average monthly spend

  • Two standout performers are DPI and ETH2x-FLi which has amassed $5m for the Coop since launch and contributed to 82.68% of total revenue for Q1 of 2022.
  • Also worth noting here that not all of the rebalancing costs are borne by the Index Coop and Set pay for the gas costs, in the coming months set is positioning to transfer this cost over the Index Coop.

You can find the product profitability metrics since launch in the presentation alongside the review for the polygon product suite.

  • Contributor rewards are 11% down compared to January spend (which was the last month before the start of season 1)
  • Other expenses are down by 7% since January largely due to impression mining costs being down 53%

Dive into the report for a budget vs actuals review of the whole quarter.

You can find the detailed financial statements (profit/loss statement, token flow statement and balance sheet) within the report. As always, please let us know your thoughts and if there is anything else you’d like to see in the next iteration.

Thanks for sharing. One question: the slide with the product profitability BTC2x-FLI2 is missing the rebalancing costs. Aren’t there any?

I have updated the presentation and slide above. The rebalancing costs for the quarter were $17.15K, and total profit for BTC2x-FLI therefore was $8.53K.

Thank you @Hammad1412 these summaries are an excellent resource for the community and $INDEX holders.

I’m not sure I agree with the classification of the $INDEX given to GMI stakers as “Liquidity mining”. As I recall, all the incentives were given to people who staked 100% $GMI (and so contributed nothing to $GMI liquidity, if anything the incentive was to NOT provide liquidity).

Hi OA,

That’s a good spot I’ll make the change to ‘staking incentives’ and going forward classify it under that category.
