10,000 YFI is allocated evenly between the yEarn, Balancer, and Governance pools for liquidity mining.
This proposal decides on whether or not the YFI supply should be capped in perpetuity or if the protocol should retain the ability to mint additional YFI tokens in the future as new pools come into play.
For: Allow future YFI to be minted. This will be superseded by a new proposal to discuss (and then vote) on weekly YFI allocations.
Against: The supply of YFI will be capped at 30,000 tokens.
I’m just thinking about GRIN and it’s infinite supply. It sort of disincentivizes the kind of behaviour that lead to YFI’s value increase, no? Meaning the LP’s would definitely never have profits like they do now. And how would you calculate the correct timing for release?
People need to take profits, this is how tokens get distributed. But I agree that it does benefit those in the loop the last feel days. I say let’s wait for the dust to settle before allowing for more issuance. It’s best to wait for the data once emissions end before making a rushed decision. There are a lot of questions that still need to be answered regarding issuance.
How much is optimal?
Which ways should they be distributed?
Of course we can always YOLO and do it like Andre has been doing. After all, it seems to be working.
Agree with time locked. Could potentially mint FIY and mint options with higher valuations as well, similarly to employee stock options. If adds value, options get exercised and early holders win. No continuous dump.
Happy to support FIY on our options protocol. Already ready
The whole purpose of token distribution is to actually distribute tokes, time lock is an artificial way to create demand. YFI is the only liquidity mining token that I have decided to not sell. This is because I think the project has incredible potential, there was no VC distribution and the tokenomics make sense. If the people want to sell, others that see the potential in the project will buy. I don’t think we should have a time lock.
Sure, but there is real utility in the product. I agree we need to subsidize in the beginning to get traction, and to have people learn more about the product. But after that the product needs to continue on its own merit.
Come to think about it, instead of a time lock. Why not just incentive YFI token holder to actually stake their YFI to be eligible for more YFI if we are not going to have limited issuance. We are at least giving people the right to choose what they want to do.
