Proposal to disable BNT deposits in Bancor 3

Expected on Snapshot on October 22, 2023

This proposal is split from the discussion that has happened in this thread

and Bancorians should read that post to have an understanding about this proposal


BNT is now a governance token of the Bancor protocol. Users can stake their BNT in the new governance contract to get voting power. BNT should no longer be allowed to be staked into the Bancor 3 protocol which is being sunset.


This is a fairly simple and straight forward proposal. Bancor 3 is a protocol in the process of being sunset and to be shutdown. Bancorians should NOT have any dependency on Bancor 3. This proposal is looking to disable BNT staking into a protocol that is being sunset.

Bancorians should be able to stake BNT on the new Bancor site and be able get voting power in governance. How will BNT staking be disabled from Bancor 3? That I will leave to the devs, the only thing that’s important is that it happens safe manner.


Disable BNT deposits into Bancor 3


Do nothing.


If this proposal passes then bancorians have to wait for the new BNT site to be active

I will leave that to the DEVs for when the changes are made as disabling BNT staking in bancor 3 has to be done after the new site is live.

This has now been done
