Camelot welcomes Tarot Protocol to the Round Table

Camelot DEX
4 min readJan 5, 2023

Tarot is a multi-chain decentralized lending protocol that allows users to leverage farm their LPs. Users can maximize yield and limit impermanent loss through their novel pool design.

Tarot has recently expanded its market offering to Arbitrum, and we are therefore proud to welcome them to the Round Table and support the first $TAROT liquidity on the chain. Camelot aims to build deep and sustainable liquidity for $TAROT on Arbitrum, enabling further innovation and creating more opportunities for their community.

Users can already provide liquidity and swap $TAROT, with the first farm going live on Friday, 6th Jan at 6 pm UTC.

A long-term partnership to support innovation on Arbitrum

Camelot is a custom-built protocol that aims to become the native Arbitrum DEX. By building multiple novel features from the ground up, Camelot enables higher capital efficiency and attempts to bring the real-yield approach to a DEX. Tarot is a multi-chain, decentralized lending protocol where users can participate as lenders or borrowers in isolated lending pools.

While Tarot has several pools live on Arbitrum, there is currently no DEX liquidity for their token. By welcoming Tarot to the Round Table, we are committed to providing farming incentives to the TAROT/USDC pool and supporting liquidity with our various custom-built features. Tarot is committed to seeding the pool with initial protocol-owned liquidity, and we’re excited that this will support their further expansion on Arbitrum. In addition, Tarot is working on the future integration of Camelot’s custom spNFTs, opening up the opportunity for significant capital efficiency gains as users can borrow, lend, and leverage their Camelot positions.

Tarot is an innovative protocol focused on building decentralized and permissionless primitives, and it is a privilege to support them on Arbitrum by welcoming them to the Round Table.

The Round Table comprises the key Arbitrum builders, and we are excited that this partnership will further align the ecosystem with collaborating, innovating, and building.

Tarot Protocol

Tarot is a multi-chain, decentralized lending protocol where users can participate as lenders or borrowers in isolated lending pools. Native to Fantom, Tarot is also currently deployed on Optimism and Arbitrum, with Mainnet and BSC expected soon.

Lenders can supply tokens to any lending pool in the Tarot Protocol to earn passive yield without impermanent loss. Borrowers can deposit LP tokens in a lending pool to borrow additional tokens in the token pair. This enables borrowers to leverage their LP tokens for even more LP tokens, allowing for leveraged yield farming and enhanced LP rewards.

Custom-built Liquidity Infrastructure

Camelot’s vision is to build innovative infrastructure that supports other Arbitrum builders through unique custom features:

  • Unique AMM implementation that supports volatile & stable assets with dynamic fees (custom fees per pool, as well as per buy or sell direction)
  • A custom NFT wrapper for staked positions that allows LPs to be reused for further capital efficiency gains
  • Nitro pools allow protocols to incentivize liquidity based on custom requirements permissionlessly
  • Innovative escrowed tokenomics that enable a more sustainable protocol that can capture real yield for holders

Camelot will leverage all its unique features to ensure that liquidity is deep and adaptable — tailored to what is most effective for the $TAROT token. For example, Nitro pools would allow us to incentivize liquidity in a custom way, such as by only rewarding LPs that lock for a certain time and deposit over a certain amount.

In addition, we could set custom fees for $TAROT pools or add even further custom requirements to Nitro pools. This high level of control will allow us to support the Tarot protocol to build an efficient rewards structure for their token liquidity. Therefore, we can enable highly efficient returns on $TAROT liquidity while bootstrapping critical infrastructure that benefits the entire ecosystem.

Most importantly, by welcoming Tarot to the Round Table and building deep liquidity for their token, we hope to foster further innovation within the Arbitrum ecosystem. For example, deeper liquidity for Tarot could open up new opportunities for use in other DeFi primitives.

The quest for GRAIL

After launching one month ago, we’re proud to have set the initial foundations for Camelot to become the Arbitrum native DEX.

Before launching, we announced the formation of the Round Table with our Genesis partners: GMX, Umami, Jones, Buffer, GMD, Sperax, and Nitro Cartel. With our partner’s support, our genesis pools allowed us to bootstrap $15m TVL before even having a token live!

Following our initial partners and genesis pools, we proceeded with the fair launch of our $GRAIL token. We’re proud to have had a smooth sale, raising over $3.8m with a final valuation of $25m FDV! No VC, no presale, $GRAIL was an utterly fair opportunity for the community to purchase.

From the beginning, Camelot is designed as a custom-built protocol that prioritizes sustainable tokenomics and long-term behavior. We’re proud that our Genesis farms & fair launch sale demonstrated these commitments to the community.

Now that the foundation has been set, we’re excited to move forward at full speed, with some very exciting announcements planned for the coming weeks.
