What is the purpose of Scooper pools for SundaeSwap?

I understand that delegating to them allows you to participate in the ISO. My question is twofold.

  1. why limit the ISO to only people who delegate to those particular pools? This caused massive amounts of ADA to move from other pools to these scooper pools, which will likely have a very negative impact on many other pools that are struggling to operate.

  2. why limit the pools that can process transactions for SundaeSwap? This seems to be causing a huge traffic jam with significant side effects. Is there something special those pools need to do in order to process transactions for SundaeSwap?

I own a staking pool - IAG - (It’s All Good). - and feel like this decision is causing a lot of harm and I am not seeing the purpose or the value.

  1. I don’t have an issue for their support. I have a question about why something works the way it does. 2) they don’t have a way to contact “online support” on their website 3) even if they do have a support team that could somehow be contacted, I’m sure they are massively overwhelmed right now with the hundreds of thousands of failed and pending transactions they have.

Rather, this is a question to the broader group of people who own and operate staking pools or are familiar enough with Cardano to explain why it would make sense to use this “scooper” concept from an architectural perspective.

That’s exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

I’ve been following as much about Sundaeswap dex development since september. I understand I would say the top two layers of the network but nothing about the programming. But there are a couple fleeting questions I have that if somebody out there knows, if you can answer them I would, I’d really appreciate it. How many orders are they processing per day and how do I know in what order in line my order is to get processed through what they call a scoop? My recent action on the network was two canceled Sundaeswap orders since the price range was too far off slippage. And one order of the liquidity for the Sundaeswap/ADA pool. Order was made January 23rd at 4:30 p.m. Central standard time. It’s still in waiting que for scoop.

They added a “Queue” point in their user interface. You can see how many orders are waiting (at the moment 10750 for SUNDAE, 800 for WMT, and just 0 to 4 for all the others), but you can’t know, where in the queue your order is waiting.

You don’t have to cancel if it is out of price range. I cancelled the first order for SUNDAE, but the second one I just let in the queue. It went out of price range, but is now in price range again for quite some time, hope it gets processed one day.

Orders for other tokens seem to go through in reasonable time. My order for MILK went through in less than an hour on Sunday, but the non-cancelled SUNDAE order is also waiting since Monday.

I heard there was a way to see were you are in the que using Utxo and cardano scan. I wish :sweat_smile: I knew how to read that.

I can read them pretty well, but have no idea how to find that information.

I could see, when my order transaction was exactly (2022-01-24 19:31:46 UTC) and when the order transaction of the most recent scoops were, though. There was a recent transaction that looks like a successful swap at 2022-01-28 15:45:06 UTC and one of the swap requests for that was at 2022-01-23 06:05:54 UTC. (All times are linked to the transactions on Cardanoscan.)

Seems to have something like 5.5 days delay, right now.

What my plan is, is that once the adding to the liquidity order goes through, is to add more to it from there. Do you know how it works from there? I don’t know whether there are buttons to click just to add more liquidity to same order or if I have to make a new order to the same pool.

You will need to create new orders to add more liquidity. You can’t update an order once it’s been processed.
