Prime Rating
Report Update Proposal (RUP) Overview
This process only applies to raters with more than 50 RXPs


This process addresses the need to frequently update already-rated projects, to improve Prime Rating's efficiency as well as accuracy of the scores. Additionally, it will give analysts the possibility to update their own reports and thus creating an incentivize to stay on top of what is going on in the protocols they rated.

What is a RUP?

A RUP (Report Update Proposal) is a proposal to accept an updated version of an existing report, into the overall rating score. The process is similar to a RAP, the difference is that a RUP concerns a report that was already accepted via a RAP.

Proposing a RUP - Qualification

  • RUP allows raters to update their own reports
  • The report can be updated once every quarter, or after an event of high significance directly impacting the protocol (e.g. an exploit, new release, other significant updates)
  • Raters are required to update every section of the report. If there was a significant change in only one area, other section can be commented with "no updates"
  • To facilitate the review process, analysts are asked to highlight all changes in the document (e.g. via use of background coloring)
  • Standard rewards are 50% of a new report (min. $75 USDC, 100 $D2D, 5 RXP)
  • For submitting a RUP the latest RAP Template version is used (changing the title to RUP)
  • Analysts need a minimum of 50 RXPs to submit a RUP. This rule is in place to support our committed raters and ensure a high quality standard
  • Like for normal reports RUPs are eligible for Season and Rate-athon rewards

The RUP Lifecycle

The following steps are required to initiate and effectively queue a vote (same as RAP):
  1. 1.
    Submission of a report via Typeform and notification of governor via the ⤴│submit-report channel in Discord
  2. 2.
    A governor will check the report for formatting and upload it to IPFS, and for voting onto Snapshot. Make sure that the RUP uses the latest version of the RAP Template. This typically takes place within two days of submission
  3. 3.
    After adding it to Snapshot, the governor will inform the other governors to vote
  4. 4.
    A RUP is queued on Snapshot and runs for 72 hours
  5. 5.
    Once the vote has passed, the updated report is added to the rating webpage
