BAL Whitelist Modifications for Week 56

There were no tokens requested for the whitelist this week. For the sake of consistency, the template below is maintained (but largely useless).

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.

Proposed Modifications

There are no proposed modifications this week, as the community did not make a single request.

The proposed changes will go into effect at 00:00 UTC on Monday, June 21. 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.

Resulting Soft/Hard Pegs

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 wrapFactor proposal.

There are no new price pegs introduced this week.

Omissions

No requested tokens were omitted this week.
