The following proposal that is currently up for vote is too vague.
As we move projects towards deeper levels of priveledge within the bancor network, we need to ensure that proposals are well thought out and of mutual benefit to both bancor and the tkn under consideration.
B tokens such as bbadger and bdigg are representative of badger / digg tokens within a vault and are not extensively traded elsewhere. The underlying badger / digg are highly liquid on their own.
Because of this, there is no real benefit, IMO, to having a competitive pool fee on bbadger / bdigg pools.
I Suggest making an alternate proposal.
Bbadger / Bdigg pool fees raised to 1%.
Bbadger / Bdigg coinvestment increase to 5million BNT each.
Addition of liquidity mining rewards to both pools.
The badger community is forged from diamond hands and all walks of defi.
The vast majority of badger / digg are staking within these vaults.
Because of this, and a lack of use cases for the issued b Tokens, I believe there will be a very high subscription to single sided pools on Bancor.
If the community can get liquidity to a certain threshold with the higher coinvestment limits, I believe that the volume generated from the arbitrage on bbadger / bdigg vs badger / digg at a 1% fee would make LM rewards well worth it for BOTH the bancor and badger communities.
Voting yes on this proposal is agreeing to the three conditions outlined above.
Let’s make it happen!!! BNT is holding the line really well compared to other alts and we are feasting on high volume, time to stoke the flames with a new LM pool, the incentive to buy the dip combined with super high LM APY will be irresistible. SEND IT!!!
Without ample liquidity (which will exist through high coinvestment), arbs w/ a 1% fee would be infrequent.
The aim here is to create an environment to where the arbitrage is enticing / reap the fees from frequent arbitrage.
Edit to add:
There are several other interest bearing tokens that bancor could list in this fashion… because we know for a fact that there will be heavy subscription by badger community, I believe that these pools can establish precedent for future listings, such as aave’s interest bearing tokens.
I have heard the argument for “massive arbitrage volume” and it never happens. This will turn into another diluted double dip pool where the badger adds no value to bancor, especially since these coins are not traded.
