Proposal: Extend LM Rewards for ROOK

Proposal to Extend LM Rewards for ROOK

This proposal is expected to appear on Snapshot for voting on Monday 24th May 2021 at 12:00 pm UTC.


  • The liquidity mining (LM) rewards program started on the 28th of February 2021.
  • First 12 weeks of LM rewards for the ROOKBNT pool will be over on the 23rd of May 2021.
  • On the 5th of March (earliest data on Dune Analytics), the pool liquidity was ~33,829.16 ROOK (~$14,209,662.46), and has since grown to ~37,520.82 ROOK (~$12,876,755.27), captured on the 19th of May [1].
  • In the past month, the pool has attracted an average of $3,392.95 in daily fees and an average daily volume of $1,693,083.5 [2].
  • The ROOKBNT pool is the deepest ROOK DEX&CEX pool, with roughly triple the liquidity of Uniswap ($4,095,993) [3].


KeeperDAO has had a good synergy with Bancor. An example of such is the integration of their gasless limit order functionality in the Bancor swap widget.

Here is a comparison of the fees obtained in the past 60 days from the pools with currently active LM rewards:

I think this pool needs more time. Has great potential. Will be a YES vote for me.


Will be voting yes here.


As it currently stands, the BNT-ROOK pool has drawn ~16M in liquidity and we have succeeded in becoming the deepest pool compared to uniswap and sushiswap:


The liquidity on the ROOK side of the pool roughly filled up completely on the week of 3/1:

and hasn’t changed much since then. The weekly fees for this pool have been in the range of ~$6K-~$46K and the peak was on the week of 4/12:

which correspond to the following volume:

Here are the total fees that have been collected since the week of 3/1 for the ROOK pool and others that have come up for renewal recently:
