Proposal: Whitelist SHEESHA with 100k BNT co-investment

Proposal to Whitelist Sheesha Finance (SHEESHA)

For this proposal to pass, it requires 35% quorum and 66.7% supermajority.

This proposal is expected to appear on Snapshot for voting on 2021-12-05T17:00:00Z. Make sure to stake your vBNT for voting before this date and time to participate in the DAO decision.


  • Proposal to whitelist SHEESHA.
  • Co-investment of 100,000 BNT.
  • There are no security concerns that could prohibit whitelist status.
  • There is no reason to doubt the legitimacy of the Sheesha Finance project. The team members are fully disclosed and can be found here.
  • The benefit to Bancor is clear. Providing SHESHA liquidity will attract token LPs from the SHEESHA community to swap on Bancor, and increase protocol trade volume.

The Deepest SHESHA pools are:

The SHEESHA/ETH Uniswap v2 pool on Ethereum with $6,643,390 liquidity, $23,324 daily volume, and an extrapolated APR from the 24hr fees of 0.38% [1].

The SHEESHA/WBNB PancakeSwap pool on BSC with $4.98m liquidity, $6.17K daily volume [2].

A co-investment of 100,000BNT opens up space for at least $412k of liquidity in the pool, with BNT at $4.12.

Token Security

There are two Sheesha Finance chains, on ERC20 and BEP20.

SHEESHA does not have an elastic supply, or rebase mechanism. The SEESHA token has a max supply cap of 100,000 SHEESHA for each chain. 15,000 tokens on each chain were “burnt” during a smart contract migration event on both chains. Contracts are standard ERC-20 OpenZeppelin contracts. The contracts don’t have any permissions that grant administrators unrestricted mint/burn capabilities.

The top 15 contracts and addresses with the highest concentration of SHEESHA are the Uniswap v2 pool contract, Sheesha Vault contracts, token contract, team wallets for allocation, and wallets with 0.5667%, 0.4250%, 0.1417% , 0.1417% and 0.1148% of circulating supply.

There are two Sheesha Finance chains, on ERC20 and BEP20.

Each chain was created with 100,000 tokens. 15,000 tokens on each chain were “burnt” during a smart contract migration event on both chains.

Whilst the fully diluted supply is 100,000 on both chains, only 85,000 of these tokens will be accessible to the team and community.

During the LGEs, 15,000 tokens on each chain were made available for liquidity and are staked as LP on Uniswap and Pancakeswap for 24 months from April 2021 with fees to unstake beginning at 96% and decreasing by 4% every month.

Sheesha Finance native token rewards are distributed every network block.

Via the staking contracts each chain has available for 24 months from April 2021: - 10,000 SHEESHA token rewards for wallets staking single-sided SHEESHA tokens - 20,000 SHEESHA token rewards for wallets staking SHEESHA-LP tokens (tokens created by combining SHEESHA and ETH/BNB to an equal value on a DEX and then staked on the Sheesha platform.)

After the end of the 24 month period from the LGE, staking rewards will continue via redistribution of unstaking fees in order to reward and incentivise the staking community.

At Sheesha Finance, we know how important it is to advocate decentralized finance and build an engaged community. So we have allocated 10,000 tokens on both chains for marketing. A further 10,000 tokens are for team, legal costs, advisors, and ongoing development.

The token reserve of 20,000 tokens on both chains is for token swaps with partner projects as we fund the revolution in DeFi.

Hi @sheeshateam,

Thanks for bringing up this proposal to the Bancor DAO (looks great :+1:). I don’t see much of an issue with this proposal from my end and the co-investment certainly seems small enough that I am comfortable with voting “for” this whitelisting. Any reason why I can’t find your token on coingecko?

I’m late to this weeks vote (and missed the call last week :roll_eyes:).

However, I’m likely to vote AGAINST.

Mainly because I don’t understand the logic in wanting a Bancor white list. As I understand it the business model is to buy $SEESHA and stake it, then you get a drip of prelaunch / small cap tokens to produce a diversified portfolio - so far so good. They also allow staking the $SESHA:ETH pair on Uni v2 for the same reward tokens (> $6 M on Uni v2).

Bancor v2, doesn’t give a receipt token, so I think any $SEESHA deposits into Bancor are a huge disadvantage to direct staking or Uni v2 LP staking. So why a $BNT pool?

[Is the SEESHA protocol planning to fill the Bancor pool from treasury to increase liquidity without buying ETH :thinking:]

We have seen with other protocols that are also incentivizing their Uni/Sushi pools that the IL experienced is never overcome by the number of rewards that they are receiving. Some LPs for those tokens do end up using Bancor regardless even though they might be getting TKN rewards in another DEX (spell comes to mind).

Single-sided staking is also attractive to TKN holders that are not willing to sell their stack (those that are long on their tokens). Note that security and economic requirements for whitelisting a token are the dimensions that we should consider for whitelisting. If they are also willing to promote via social channels, integrate bancor into their product somehow, etc… then these are good pluses as well. I am of the opinion that we should whitelist as much as possible if they meet those requirements.


Some very good points that I hadn’t considered ( I have a tendency to over think…)

Thank you.

In the end I forgot to go back to the snapshot, so I effectively abstained :roll_eyes:
