Moved this discussion here to keep other topic on Badger trial.
Really like this topic and had seen some good discussion on it on discord as well.
Something we discussed on discord was that if the reserve rate on a pool was changed to 25% there are some good ways to divide those funds to bring more appeal for protocols to work with Pooltogether community. One split I mention was 10/10/5 Pooltogether Treasury/Selected Pool Community(UNI,
Badger, etc) Treasury/Gitcoin contribution.
One thing I left out is that I think some funds should be allocated to a fair jackpot. This could either be achieved by splitting things differently or increasing the amount of the take to 30%.
Option A: 10/10/5 Pooltogether Treasury/Selected community pool treasury/Fair Jackpot. I wouldn’t want to leave out gitcoin as I think it’s important. Maybe in pools like DAI and USDC pools which have a higher yield and no community treasury to donate to we could replace the “selected community pool treasury” field with the gitcoin donation.
Option B: 10/10/5/5 Pooltogether treasury/Selected community pool treasury/Fair Jackpot/Gitcoin.
Back to the discussion of how to pay out the funds in a way that supports other communities. I think in the case of a UNI pool that is collecting 25%(10/10/5) to treasury and 10 of that getting distributed back to UNI, it should just be UNI going back to them to do with as they please. All governance protocols have the same issue with depleting reserves and our contribution could be really helpful once the pools get big. This also keeps us from dumping other protocols tokens.
Interested to see where this discussion goes but I think paying back the ecosystem is a recipe for success. We can always set something up and play with the numbers as we go. Maybe down the road the Pooltogether will be so big and diversified that we don’t need to collect funds for our treasury anymore and can redistribute to POOL holders or to New prize pools.
