BAL Whitelist Modifications for Week 37

On behalf of the Balancer community, I’d like to propose the following modifications to the token whitelist used for BAL governance token distribution. All new tokens will be placed at cap1 ($1M) as described in the updated whitelist proposal. At any time, community members may propose on the forum to increase a token’s cap to the next tier.

As a reminder, these whitelist proposals are pre-approved on objective technical criteria, so they are not subject to community vote. To suggest a token for inclusion in one of these proposals, please use the #token-requests channel in the Balancer Discord. Requested tokens will be vetted in a single batch each Friday, to take effect the following Monday. The official instructions and listing criteria can be found here.

For reference, the active whitelist can be found here. Note that the additions suggested within this proposal are unlikely to appear on the official list until a few days after publication. Also see the original motivation for creating the whitelist.

Proposed Modifications

I would like to propose adding the following new tokens to the whitelist:

    ADD		BUILD	0x6e36556B3ee5Aa28Def2a8EC3DAe30eC2B208739
    ADD		CAP		0x43044f861ec040DB59A7e324c40507adDb673142
    ADD		GLM		0x7DD9c5Cba05E151C895FDe1CF355C9A1D5DA6429
    ADD		NCT		0x8A9c4dfe8b9D8962B31e4e16F8321C44d48e246E
    ADD		RAZOR	0x50DE6856358Cc35f3A9a57eAAA34BD4cB707d2cd

The proposed changes will go into effect at 00:00 UTC on Monday, February 8. Pools containing newly whitelisted tokens will begin to accrue BAL beginning at 00:00 UTC on Monday; but they may not appear on the Balancer pools UI with symbol/logo until a few days later. Furthermore, whitelisted tokens will not be added to the Balancer exchange UI; the core team adds tokens to the official exchange UI at their own discretion and considers a variety of factors. Tokens can always be traded using contract addresses in place of symbols, and anyone is free to fork the open source exchange UI to add more symbols.

Resulting Soft/Hard Pegs

The following price pegs will be added to the BAL mining scripts in response to the whitelist changes. At time of writing, soft pegs receive a wrapFactor of 0.2 and hard pegs receive a wrapFactor of 0.1. For reference, please see the wrapFactor proposal.

There are no new price pegs introduced this week.


No requested tokens were omitted this week.
