Integrating entire chains (or L2s in this case) is on the higher end of effort required. We’d need to not only update our backend, front end, servers, docs, etc… but maintain them for the foreseeable future. So, we should be sure that the effort is worth the benefits to the 1inch Network.
Some things we should look at before pushing for a new deployment:
$1.5M is very low. I see what you mean regarding the potential for future growth, but we’d want this to be at around 2-orders of magnitude higher to justify the work ($100M+). I don’t think there have been any firm number thrown around, I’m just going off of past integrations.
Number of DEXs / liquidity sources
If the TVL is sufficient, this is probably the most important factor seeing as 1inch is primarily an aggregator (if all liquidity sits in a single DEX, then there isn’t much of a point in using an aggregator in the first place).
DeFi Llama should start tracking most of these metrics once they add Arbitrum Nova. With all the information in a single location, it should make the decision-making process easier for the DAO.
