Options AMM by Gene Aumson, Paul Vienhage, & Ron Bernstein
A team of options nerds on a mission to bring liquid DeFi options to Matcha. We made progress towards that by building a set of tools to value options. To support our exploration of valuation models, we crafted a SQL query to produce historical volatilities from existing hourly price data, across many assets and time frames.

Ritual (Recurring Buys) by Alex Kroeger, Alex Towle, Brandon Millman, & Michael Zhu
Trustless, automated dollar-cost averaging on Matcha. In just two transactions, users can set up a recurring trade with their choice of trade interval and amount. 0x API takes it from there, surfacing these recurring trades as competitively priced limit orders in Matcha and other integrators.

Depth Chart by Amir Bandeali, Greg Hysen, John Johnson, Jacob Evans, & Theo Gonella
The team worked on a primer for DEX aggregators: a market depth chart to help Matcha users get more details about the liquidity available for the specific pair. And that’s not all: the chart comes with the breakdown of all the different sources used. We’ve already implemented the charts on some of the Curve and Keep markets — more to come!

Matcha Through History by Clay Robbins, Matt Taylor, & Rui Zhang
Matcha not only caffeinates and powers the entire 0x Labs team but also the decentralized exchange ecosystem. This project explored how Matcha, a mystical, finely ground tea, influenced key events from the dawn of time to today. The team uncovered graphical artifacts from the Big Bang through the industrial revolution, to the age of cryptocurrency that shows just how critical Matcha has influenced history. Learn more about Matcha through History by this agglomerate timeline.

ZOO Token by Alex Browne, Ben Burns, Daniel Pyrathon, Kim Persson, Max Torres, & Steve Klebanoff
The ZOO token is an experiment in fractional ownership, tokenization, and community incentives. We commissioned the creation of a virtual zoo in The Bronx neighborhood of Cryptovoxels. We are depositing the parcel into our custom ZOO smart contract, which will mint 10,000 tokens, which represent fractional ownership in the ZOO. The token will be distributed to the Cryptovoxels community — including neighbors, artists, and architects.
On January 30th, 2021, the ZOO smart contract will automatically initiate a dutch auction to sell parcel in its entirety. Upon the sale completing, all proceeds will be distributed amongst ZOO token holders based on proportional ownership. Visit zootoken.club to learn more and get notified of the launch!
