On March 31st UMA completed an airdrop of 1,000,000 KPI options(uTVL-0621) to 7135 addresses that interacted in governance of several protocols. It targeted Yearn, Yam, Sushi, BadgerDAO, and Balancer governance participants.
What are KPI options?
KPI options are an incentive mechanism that can be used to grow TVL. The options can be sent to a wallet and then be redeemed by that wallet on a specific date. The value of the options on that date is determined by reaching predetermined growth milestones.
In the case of uTVL-0621 options they will be redeemable for a maximum of 2 UMA tokens if UMA TVL reaches 2B TVL on June 30th. Current TVL for UMA is 175 Million locked which makes each option worth 0.175 UMA.
How can KPI options be used to Pooltogether’s benefit?
We as a community could set a goal to reach 2B TVL(or more) by a certain date and airdrop options to a carefully curated list of addresses of protocols that we believe align with our values and will bring growth to Pooltogether. This move would incentivize users to do their part to promote the growth of Pooltogether. I think the key value this adds would be targeting users who are strong and active crypto participants to try out Pooltogether and help promote it’s growth by reaching a common goal.
Just wanted to start a formal discussion to see what the community thinks and determine if this would be a good fit for Pooltogether. I think if we were to do something like this is would be good to time with our rewards reduction. Maybe the community can come up with ways to tweak this a bit and make it even more beneficial.
