Proposal to Whitelist Token Pillar (PLR) with 50K BNT co-investment

Proposal to Whitelist Token Pillar (PLR)

This proposal is expected to appear on Snapshot for voting on July 12th 2021


  • Proposal to whitelist PLR
  • Proposed co-investment is 50,000 BNT, as we currently have around $50,000 in an existing PLR/BNT liquidity pool
  • There are no apparent security concerns that would prohibit whitelist status.
  • There is no reason to doubt the legitimacy of the Pillar project.
  • The benefit to Bancor is clear.

PLR token address: 0xe3818504c1b32bf1557b16c238b2e01fd3149c17

Token Security

PLR does not have an elastic supply, or rebase mechanism. The Pillar contracts do not have permissions that grant administrators unrestricted mint/burn capabilities. The PLR token supply is fixed at 800,000,000.00 of which 259,348,201.00 are in current circulation.
The contracts and addresses with the highest concentration of PLR tokens are those set aside in a wallet for the PLR DAO Fund and tokens which have been donated to the Pillar Project Foundation.

Benefits for Bancor

We have recently launched our V.2 wallet that fully supports BNT, which has brought a lot of attention amongst our large active Pillar community, and wider DeFi community. We have an in-house and outsourced marketing team who can promote the pool to a wider audience via active outreach and encourage engagement via our various social media platforms. We have also begun a rollout of weekly webinars which promotes the projects of those who we work with, including a discussion on “NFTs & the Chasm” featuring Bancor’s Nate Hindman as a panelist. We are also exploring the possibility of single sided staking within the wallet and wider discussions are taking place to understand the scope associated with this.


I’m for it. Pillar has been on Bancor since forever.


I will read as much as I can about this project, since I really like what I see so far. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use it, though. :disappointed:

Cool project and glad to support a wallet that is looking to integrate Bancor single sided staking directly into their app. I will be voting to support this proposal which already has some decent liquidity on our end:


without being whitelisted.


As Glenn points out it makes absolute sense to whitelist projects that have stayed with us despite not receiving our main major advantage of IL Protection and Single Sided Staking. Pools like this with existing liquidity and appreciation for our system will always earn my vote.

Also this was a real good panel, appreciate it.


@Amberr - you are from PILLAR right? Will you announce if this passes and drive LPs to Bancor?


Yes I am! If we are able to be whitelisted we will 100% make an announcement on all our channels promoting the pool! We are mid marketing campaign for out V.2 launch, so perfect timing!
