  • Increase ICHI Trading Liquidity to 1M BNT from 700k BNT


Since the most recent trading liquidity limit increase, ICHI launched Decentralized Monetary Authorities (DMAs) for ShapeShift, DODO, and BOOT. Additionally ICHI released the newest innovation in DeFi 2.0 - Angel Vaults! Since their release, ICHI has already launched its first cohort of Vaults, locking in an additional $10M in TVL in the first month. After the ICHI Angel Vault was released, ICHI’s price increased from ~$5.51 to ~$13.15 through the bear market (Nov. 29th, 2021 - Jan 24th, 2022).

ICHI plans to work with the Bancor core-team to partner and build both a DMA and Angel Vault for the Bancor community to help support BNT price and create a stable currency for Bancor operational use.

Trading Liquidity Limit Increase Justification

ICHI liquidity on Bancor is now the largest liquidity pool for the ICHI token but there is only space available for 1,270 more ICHI. With the recent release of ICHI’s Angel Vaults and its price increase, Bancor has been able to continue to grow its TVL through the market downturn. ICHI currently provides a 41.42% APY to this pool via xICHI rewards. An increase in trading liquidity limit to 1M BNT will enable Bancor to strengthen the partnership with ICHI and continue to grow TVL.
