Our work “Altruistic and Profit-oriented: Making Sense of Roles in Web3 Community from Airdrop Perspective” is accepted by ACM CHI’23

Many decentralized applications (DApps) issue airdrops to early supporters for their contributions. However, most eligible users are motivated by financial profit or preferential access to tokens with governance rights to obtain quick cash. In this paper, we take ParaSwap as a representative example, trying to evaluate the Web 3.0 community and the effectiveness of allocation principles through the analysis of eligible users’ behavior and token transaction network.

Our paper “Economic Analysis of Decentralized Exchange Market with Transaction Fee Mining” received the Best Paper Award from ACM BSCI‘22!

In this paper, we establish the DEX market with transaction fee mining and formulate our model based on the Hotelling model. Besides, we propose a two-stage game to formulate the interaction between DEXs and users and derive the equilibriums under different conditions of two parameters: the transaction cost difference and users’ stickiness. We show that though the service provider with a lower transaction cost can win the market, users’ stickiness can offset the market advantage. Thus, incentivizing users with transaction fee mining has become a crucial strategy in the duopoly competition.
