[BIP-59] Enable MAI/USDC Gauge on Ethereum

Vote: Yes

Rationale: QiDao is a team that keeps delivering to the Balancer ecosystem. Given the size and multi chain nature of MAI, AC would prefer this to be 2%, but voting yes.

Vote: Yes

[BIP-63] Enable IB/WETH 80/20 Gauge w/2% emissions cap [Optimism]

Vote: No

Rationale: Doesn’t seem like a valid use of resources given the nature of the pool and token.
An 8020 pool with a token with such low mcap and daily trading volume just doesn’t seem like a pool composition that should get balancer rewards in our opinion. 5050 pool with yield bearing wstETH or something would make more sense.

Vote: Yes

Rationale: Seems like a necessary migration path.

[BIP-73] Whitelist the gauge for the USDD/FRAX/USDC Pool to receive BAL emissions

[BIP-77] Friendly Balancer Protocol Fees for Integrators

Vote: Yes

Rationale: This is a worthwhile proposal and should provide Balancer and potential partners the flexibility needed to develop long term partnerships. A positive step with communication now being the next key step here to ensure potential partners are aware of how they can best start building and integrating with Balancer.

[BIP-78] Delegate Aave Holding to Llama

Vote: Yes

Rationale: Llama has been a stalwart for governance in the Aave community and they are very familiar with the ecosystem. The delegation of voting power to Llama is a positive and practical approach.

[BIP-79] Enable COMP/wstETH Gauge [Ethereum]

Vote: Yes

Rationale: This pool provides an opportunity for large holders of the COMP token to spread their votes out to other pools, and this pool would significantly increase any yield earned over time. This appears to be a better solution as it provides better yield for Balancer.

[BIP-80] Enable bb-rf-asUSD/bb-rf-aUSD Gauge [Optimism]

Vote: Yes

Rationale: These pools have a lot of potential moving forward providing they get picked up easily by DEX aggregators and cowswap.

[BIP-81] Enable wstETH/bb-rf-aUSD/bb-rf-aWBTC 50/25/25 Gauge [Optimism]

Vote: Yes

Rationale: As per BIP 80. Again a great option with yield bearing pools and additional fee revenues for Balancer.

[BIP-82] Enable bb-rf-aWETH/wstETH Gauge [Optimism]

Vote: Yes

Rationale: as above
