Thanks @texochat
I personally don’t see the benefit of a dedicated fundraising platform for CoW Swap.
I think there are enough alternatives in the market including Gnosis Auction which was built by CoW team members and uses a fair price discovery mechanism.

Having said that, I want to thank you for submitting your proposal :heavy_heart_exclamation:
