On behalf of the Balancer community, I’d like to propose the following modifications to the token whitelist used for BAL governance token distribution. All new tokens will be placed at
cap1 ($1M) as described in the updated whitelist proposal. At any time, community members may propose on the forum to increase a token’s cap to the next tier.
As a reminder, these whitelist proposals are pre-approved on objective technical criteria, so they are not subject to community vote. To suggest a token for inclusion in one of these proposals, please use the #token-requests channel in the Balancer Discord. Requested tokens will be vetted in a single batch each Friday, to take effect the following Monday. The official instructions and listing criteria can be found here.
For reference, the active whitelist can be found here. Note that the additions suggested within this proposal are unlikely to appear on the official list until a few days after publication. Also see the original motivation for creating the whitelist.
I would like to propose adding the following new token to the whitelist:
ADD cBSN 0x7d4B1d793239707445305D8d2456D2c735F6B25B ADD EURS 0xdB25f211AB05b1c97D595516F45794528a807ad8 ADD RAZE 0x5Eaa69B29f99C84Fe5dE8200340b4e9b4Ab38EaC ADD sEUR 0xD71eCFF9342A5Ced620049e616c5035F1dB98620
The proposed changes will go into effect at 00:00 UTC on Monday, April 19. Whitelisted tokens will not be added to the Balancer exchange UI; the core team adds tokens to the official exchange UI at their own discretion and considers a variety of factors. Tokens can always be traded using contract addresses in place of symbols, and anyone is free to fork the open source exchange UI to add more symbols.
The following price pegs will be added to the BAL mining scripts in response to the whitelist changes. At time of writing, soft pegs receive a
wrapFactor of 0.2 and hard pegs receive a
wrapFactor of 0.1. For reference, please see the
SOFT EURS <-> Euro group SOFT sEUR <-> Euro group
No requested tokens were omitted this week.
