The project is governed by a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization), providing the token holders and community with voting rights to make changes to the protocol, emissions, and more.

What is the most interesting engineering challenge in working together?

With the aid of the Chainstack infrastructure support, the process of establishing farming aggregator contracts on the Polygon network was eased. Pickle Finance’s core infrastructure integrity is assured by Chainstack as the number of transactions and user interactions rose. This extension into the Polygon network resulted in a considerable increase in the number of users, transactions, and harvests with the farms running each day. Using Chainstack, Pickle Finance is able to shift from weekly to hourly harvests, and in various instances, transact and handle harvests smoothly even when it is carried out within a couple of minutes.
