this is a statement summarizing the state of discussions between devs and community members from teia with devs/managers from objktcom in regards to which swaps (lists) will show up on which marketplace.
if you want to read more about the new teia swapping contract, you can do so on the Blogpost about our new teia smartcontracts.
the new, freshly audited marketplace contract will be implemented soon and with it the question arises which marketplaces other than teia will support the swapping contract.
Teia will keep on using hicetnuncs OBJKT minting contract for the time being. that means the OBJKTs minted on teia will show up on all marketplaces that show hicetnunc OBJKTs (i.e. hicetnunc.xyz, objktcom, rarible, hic.af, etc) this wont change no matter which platform supports which swapping contract. This discussion is only about which “listings/swapps” will appear on which site.
if a marketplace X supports the swapping contract of marketplace Y, it means that OBJKTs swapped for trade on the marketplace Y contract will be also tradeable on marketplace X and even though the token got traded on marketplace X the fees will go to marketplace Y (if bought through the Y contract)
currently objktcom support hicetnuncs v2 marketplace contract but the hicetnunc.xyz marketplace does not support objktcoms swapping contract, meaning: swaps from hicetnunc show up and are tradeable at objktcom but hicetnunc OBJKTs swapped on objktcom can’t be traded on hicetnunc.xyz.
this of course means that swapping on hicetnunc is incentivised as the swaps show up on both marketplaces. Now that there is a 3rd swapping contract in the mix (teia swapping contract) the question of who is showing who’s swaps on their marketplace naturally arises.
objkts that are currently swapped on teia, hicetnunc.art or another hen mirror get swapped and traded on the hicetnunc v2 swapping contract. once the new teia swapping contract is live, swapps on teia will automatically get swapped onto the teia marketplace contract. but old swaps would need to be reswapped in order to be on the teia swapping contract
the current consensus seems to be that teia wants to support both the teia and the hicetnunc v2 swapping contract for now so that the users don’t have to reswap everything to be listed on teia but new swaps on teia will be created onto the new teia smartcontract. but the question of whether supporting objktcoms marketplace contract has not been fully discussed yet.
the hicetnunc v2 marketplace contract directs the platform fees of objkts traded through it to crzypatchwork. from crzypatchworks discord statements it looks like he doesnt plan for hicetnunc.xyz to support other marketplace contracts than v2. (s. i.e. Discord)
Over the last few weeks, some developers and community members from teia have had direct private contact with marchingsquare and nftprotector from objktcom to sync ideas and knowledge.
objktcom is a private company and they will act and decide as they wish, they are however open to discussing options and have been communicating with our project.
an option raised pretty early on our discord was to agree on showing each others swaps. this idea was brought to objktcom and they agreed that this would be a viable option. the main question is: what does the community think about this option? (s. i.e. Discord)
it is not clear whether objktcom would show, next to objktcom swaps, both teia and v2 swaps or teia swaps only.
objktcom supporting only teia swaps and not listing v2 swaps would incentivise the use of the teia swap as it would be the swapping contract that would show up on teia and objktcom. this would on the other hand mean that currently swapped tokens (on v2) would need to be reswapped onto either teia or objktcom in order to appear on objktcom.
if both teia and v2 was supported on objktcom this would immensely incentivise swapping on hicetnuncs v2 contract as swaps from there would show up everywhere (hicetnunc.xyz, teia.art and objktcom) while swaps from teias and objkts don’t appear on hicetnunc.xyz.
share your concerns, wishes, opinions in this discourse thread please:
the two main questions are:
should we show objktcom swaps on or platform teia as long as they show ours?
what does the community think about hicetnunc v2 swaps listed on objktcom? what would you like to see objktcom doing? and note again: the decision of what objktcom does is out of our hands but they are very open to hear our opinion. a side note would be that in order for objktcom to show both swapping contracts on their end, they asked us to offset the swapping ID, which would require additional of work for @jagracar and also probably delay the start of the teia swapping contract.
Update 7feb 2022: objktcom just let us know that they plan to support only teia swaps and no more v2 swaps in the future
of course the same discussion can come up with any other swapping contract. for OBJKTs there is however mainly teias, v2, and objktcoms swapping contracts in the mix. maybe defining a standard like “we show all swaps of OBJKTs” or “we show swaps of marketplaces that show our swaps” would be a worthwhile discussion to have
This discussion is not about us showing NFTs minted through objktcom! It is only about showing swaps of hicetnunc OBJKTs done on objktcom on our marketplace
ADD3: "supporting "swapps in this case only means listing prices (not auctions or offers for now due to mostly technical reasons)
here is a UI mockup by @denscimonk of how “showing multiple swaps” could look like in practice.
(main button = cheapest price ?)
