Proposal: Increase TEMP trading liquidity to 500k BNT from 100k BNT

This proposal is expected to appear on Snapshot for voting on 2022-03-06T00:00:00Z. Make sure to stake your vBNT for voting before this date and time to participate in the DAO decision.

This proposal needs a quorum of 35% and 66.7% FOR votes to pass.


Increase TEMP Trading Liquidity to 500k BNT from 100k BNT


  • TEMP was whitelisted on February 9th, 2022, with an overwhelming response of 54% quorum and 76.2% ‘FOR’ votes.

Since the most recent whitelisting, Tempus has launched on the Fantom network and currently has approx $14m TVL. Additionally, the TEMP token was also whitelisted on SpookySwap (Fantom) and is being actively traded on there now. Finally, we have updated our documentation with an overview of our roadmap for 2022 and beyond.

Trading Liquidity Limit Increase Justification

The TEMP-BNT pool has already amassed ~$446k (as of 28 February 2022) of liquidity, which means there is insufficient balance in the pool. Clearly, our community has more demand to participate in the Bancor pool. An increase in trading liquidity limit to 500k BNT will bring it closer in line with the liquidity available on other DEXs, enabling Bancor to strengthen the partnership with Tempus and continue to grow Bancor’s TVL.

We see Bancor being a key DEX to trade the TEMP token and looking forward to deepening our relationship for the long term.

[[Update 1/3/2022: We have also proposed to allocate $750,000 worth of TEMP to the Bancor pool upon it being increased :handshake: ]]

Tempus News Highlights Since Last Proposal


Increase TEMP Trading Liquidity to 500k BNT from 100k BNT


Keep TEMP Trading Liquidity at 100k BNT


WOW, yes, we 100% need more space in the TEMP pool.

How many TEMP will the team agree to stake from the treasury? @RTP


Thank you for the support!

Nothing has been agreed just yet, we will need to take a community vote on this (#soon), but there is still a good amount of TEMP on the sidelines, so there should be enough “organic demand” to fill the capacity once increased. :handshake:


FYI - this is now in motion Ser :sunglasses: - [Proposal] Fund the TEMP/BNT pool on Bancor with approx. $750k in TEMP - Proposals - Tempus


Hey Bancorians! This is David, co-founder of Tempus. In my opinion this capacity increase is really needed to make the Bancor pool competitive with our Uniswap, Balancer, and Spookyswap pools, which are already well capitalized. We’re pushing through a proposal via Tempus governance to fund the AMM with $750k in TEMP, which we expect to pass before voting on this proposal ends. Thanks for your support!

edit: some clarification on timeline


GM Bancor community! I’m Josh, the BD Lead at Tempus. Just wanted to echo the views already shared above - there is clearly great demand from our community to participate in the Bancor pool and this liquidity limit increase is much needed to facilitate that. We’d also love to enhance our long term cooperation with Bancor. We would be grateful for your support!

GM all - this is Dhruv, BD manager at Tempus. Given our community is keen to further participate in the Bancor pool, I agree with David’s and Josh’s view that the capacity increase is needed. Many thanks for your support!


Thank you, appreciate the Tempus team’s support for the proposal and welcome to our governance forum!
