UMA Developer Mining Update

tl;dr —While we don’t encourage pure copycats, whitelisting for rewards will not evaluate product originality. When we announced Developer Mining months ago, we did so with some anticipation of the program being gamed in certain ways. One of these ways was through copycats — We worried that if a team put effort into creating an UMIP, and launching a UI, they might suffer a vampire attack for their liquidity: a competing team could launch their own copy of the token, offer higher liquidity mining rewards, and steal the customers without doing original work.
