@chainlife I assume the larger part of people will be staking so the share of graviton allocated to investments of LP (per dollar) will be larger anyways. Given the difference in liquidity of both groups I wouldn’t lower this pool at all.
@alexp I propose a scheme to boost the reward for liquidity providers (staking/pairs) that lock their assets for a given amount of time. This is interesting to deincentivise from day trading and improves the stability of the token. A more stable coin would also reduce the cost incurred by arbitrage done by Pathway, as less dips and heights will occur.
I can think of two implementations:
- The reward goes up as the asset has been present in the pool for a longer time. This would involve more work to find a proper formula that doesn’t explode too much for larger times. Practically, everybody will be ‘by default’ included to the boosted reward as it doesn’t require any extra involvement from the liquidity holders.
- The user decides on the locking time beforehand, after which a boost is given from the start which is constant. Unlike the previous implementation, liquidity providers wouldn’t be able to retract their assets at all. Additionally, as this choice requires an action from liquidity providers (and some premeditation on the optimal locking period), not as many users will be included to this. As locking away assets has a higher effect on the liquidity providers, I would imagine the second implementation to have a higher reward.
Overall, I think this idea falls in line with the goal of the graviton dev team to push graviton forward as a stable investment.
