[MRC-96] Remove Swap Route Verification


The objective of this proposal is to address an issue with pool validation (dynamic routing) on the Osmosis chain, specifically concerning the pool located at Explorer | Celatone Explorer for Cosmos chain. Currently, our Swapper contract for this pool fails during deserialization due to the unique structure of the pool. This proposal suggests modifying our contract logic to support dynamic routing and eliminate the need for route validation.


Previously, validating pools for pre-configured routing served as a safeguard against incorrect route configurations during swapping. However, with the advent of dynamic routing on Mars smart contracts, the necessity for route validation diminishes. Instead, relying on Osmosis/Astroport DEXes to validate routes during swap execution proves to be more efficient. Moreover, the unpredictability of optimal routing provided by Osmosis/Astroport underscores the importance of ensuring support for all pool types in advance.


Implementing this upgrade involves modifying the smart contract code, which inherently carries the risk of introducing new bugs or unforeseen issues. However, the proposed changes are minor and have been carefully reviewed to minimize potential risks.


This upgrade will entail updating the logic within the Swapper contract to remove route validation.

The changes required for this upgrade can be found in the PR.

This is a signaling proposal, not an executable proposal.

The Mars smart contracts on the Osmosis chain are currently controlled by the Builder Multisig address. If this proposal passes, the builders will utilize their multisig to make the necessary parameter changes.
