185,000 ARB Up for Grabs from Arbitrum’s LTIPP

We're excited to begin distribution of Origin Ether’s Arbitrum LTIPP grant to fuel our growth in the Arbitrum ecosystem. This grant opens up exciting yield farming opportunities for wOETH holders, allowing you to earn ARB rewards to maximize your yield.

There are 185,000 ARB up for grabs which is being distributed to wOETH users on Arbitrum over the next 12 weeks, so take advantage of this opportunity while it lasts.

How to Earn ARB by Using wOETH on Arbitrum

The ARB incentives aim to grow wOETH usage on Arbitrum and fully integrate our LST across AMMs and money markets on the network. This involves getting rewards into the hands of DeFi yield farmers and users that want to borrow against wOETH in money markets and provide liquidity in decentralized exchanges we have partnered with.


We've deployed a wOETH/ETH pool on Balancer in partnership with Gyroscope. This pool distributes 3,968 ARB per week to liquidity providers, with additional incentives available through Hidden Hand or direct pool incentives.

You can get started by providing liquidity on the wOETH/ETH pool today.


We have teamed up with the Ramses team to grow the Ramses wOETH/ETH pool and will allocate 500 ARB per week to the pool. Additionally, the Ramses team is matching this on a 100% basis (1,000 ARB/week total). Ramses is also offering RAM incentives to the wOETH/ETH pool to increase the rewards for liquidity providers that deposit wOETH and ETH liquidity into the pool.

Earn ARB and RAM by providing liquidity on the wOETH/ETH Ramses Pool.

Silo Finance

10,792 ARB per week is being allocated to the Silo Finance money market for users that want to borrow against their wOETH on the platform. We are allocating a large portion of ARB incentives to this market to ensure there is ample liquidity for users to borrow against as it requires users to deposit either ETH or USDC to kickstart the market.

Users that deposit USDC or ETH in the wOETH Silo money market or use wOETH as collateral for borrowing purposes are eligible for ARB incentives. Visit the Silo dapp to get started today.
