While participating in the LP pool for POOL/ETH, one can not vote with those held POOL tokens. Can voting be enabled for the POOL in the LP, or the POOL that was entered in the LP at time of LP token minting?
Unfortunately it can’t, because the voting power of the POOL tokens is held in the Uniswap pair. The Uniswap Pair can’t delegate the voting power.
It would be possible to create a Snapshot vote for the LPs, but what votes would it actually control? It’s a tricky problem.
If solved it would incentivize two things the platform needs to be successful.
- Ample supply of liquidity on uniswap for acquiring and exchanging POOL tokens.
- Participation in governance of the protocol/platform while ensuring liquidity is available for others.
One should not have to chose between the two.
