[BIP-204] Enable bb-ag WBTC/WETH/USD Gauge [Gnosis]

PR with multisig payload


This pool uses the WeightedPoolFactory-v3and is composed of 2 Agave Finance linear pools and the bb-ag-USD boosted pool. The underlying tokens are WBTC, WETH, USDC, USDT and DAI. These will each be wrapped through Agave’s lending market to earn LPs additional yield. This gauge would enter as a “core pool” under BIP-19, meaning protocol fees earned by this pool would be used to bribe for votes on it. The gauge can be uncapped based on the contents being large cap tokens only. Agave is a fork of Aave and native to the Gnosis chain making it the logical choice for boosted rewards for Balancer LPs to access on the new network.

Protocol Description:

Agave, as stated, is a direct fork of Aave’s money market, this encompasses both a lending and borrowing side for users. Agave was built by 1Hive to bring Defi to what is now Gnosis Chain for lower fees to participate overall. WBTC, WETH, and the three major stable coins speak for themselves. These pairs are crucial to support and in theory will facilitate as a base for trades on Balancer’s Gnosis Chain deployment.


This Agave boosted pool couples the boosted WBTC, WETH and bb-ag-USD tokens to facilitate a strong liquidity base on Balancer with Gnosis. Supporting the major pairs encompassed in this pool will position Balancer as a pillar in the ecosystem for trade aggregation to occur through. The boosted APR yield to this pool that will persist for users organically and kickstart a flywheel for incentives to drive liquidity depth on Gnosis Chain. By expanding to a new chain, getting boosted pools off the ground first thing sets a precedent for net positive growth for Balancer and LPs on the network.


  1. Governance: Gnosis’ forum here.
  2. Oracles: This pool only relies on the rate providers of the linear pools to inform when yield is earned.
  3. Audits: N/A
  4. Centralization vectors: N/A
  5. Market History: See GNO.
  6. Value: We will earn the protocol fee on the underlying yields, plus trading fees. BIP-19 will incentivize TVL to continue to grow here with trading volume and this implementation will continue to draw in new volume, as well as showcase the power of these pool types.
