In 2023 the DOS has spent a total of 679.6k USDC. As you can see in the monthly breakdown this is not evenly distributed but is strictly correlated to the launch of the trading front end as well as the dYdX Chain infrastructure pieces we support (IBC Relayers, Archival Nodes and AML Checking provider) going live.
The largest expense of the DOS by far, as expected, is the Indexer, making the data of the dYdX Chain readily available in a easily searchable format requires a lot of AWS storage and compute which is expensive. Although this is a lot it is less than we had expected and than what was originally budgeted, since we are still experiencing and definitely also hoping for increased usage of the exchange we are prepared for this number to grow.
In conclusion we wanted to mention again that we are working with our accounting provider to create a dashboard enabling a more detailed and day by day overview of the dYdX Operations subDAO financials. Stay tuned for that. If you have any questions in the meantime please reach out.
