This proposal requests the approval for a strategic grant of 250,000 STRK tokens from the Strike Finance treasury. This grant is designated for significant protocol development and enhancements, gearing up for two pivotal events in the crypto space: the upcoming Bitcoin (BTC) halving and the anticipated approval of a Bitcoin ETF. These events are expected to bring substantial exposure and volume to the cryptocurrency market, and it is imperative that Strike Finance is optimally positioned to leverage these developments.
The crypto-financial landscape is on the cusp of two major milestones:

Ensuring our token is listed on leading exchanges to enhance visibility and accessibility, crucial for increasing trading volume and expanding our user base.
Enhancing our platform’s security measures to protect against sophisticated threats, ensuring the safety and trust of our users.

The proposed funding will enable Strike Finance to undertake these essential initiatives, keeping us competitive and ensuring our readiness for the transformative period ahead.
The specifics of the grant are outlined as follows:
