That’s a good point @ansteadm!
Past dYdX users who have traded on dYdX protocols (perpetual, margin, spot) on Layer 2 or Layer 1 or deposited funds into dYdX’s borrow / supply pools are eligible to receive DYDX through retroactive rewards.
According to this piece, Idle protocol is eligible to receive such rewards.
To claim the full allocation of DYDX tokens, users must meet their specific target volume tier trading perpetuals on the dYdX Layer 2 Protocol
Idle protocol does not trade perpetuals and does not support that L2. Unfortunately, this means that the Governance can not claim the rewards.
In line with restrictions on the availability of DYDX and the dYdX Layer 2 Protocol in the United States, retroactive mining is not available to users who are residents of, or incorporated or headquartered in, the United States or any other prohibited jurisdiction.
Lastly, this paragraph definitely blocks any chance. The DAO is not incorporated and Idle Labs is incorporated in the US (by the way it can not complete the KYC on behalf of the gov).
Happy to hear smart solutions that could overcome the mentioned problems
