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.
I would like to propose adding the following new tokens to the whitelist:
ADD AIN 0x3A810ff7211b40c4fA76205a14efe161615d0385 ADD KICK 0xC12D1c73eE7DC3615BA4e37E4ABFdbDDFA38907E ADD PAR 0x68037790A0229e9Ce6EaA8A99ea92964106C4703
The proposed changes will go into effect at 00:00 UTC on Monday, April 5, 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
There are no new pegs introduced this week.
No requested tokens were omitted this week.
