[BIP-25] Enable AURA/ETH 50/50 Gauge

Whitelist the gauge for the newly created AURA/ETH 50/50 Pool

Previously, the proposal for an 80/20 AURA/ETH gauge was rejected. This 50/50 pool is more in line with Balancers longer term ecosystem plans and will generate much deeper liquidity and trading fees for veBAL. I propose for this new pool to be whitelisted instead.

Protocol Description:

See here: [Proposal] Allowlist Aura Finance in Balancer VotingEscrow

Centered around @BalancerLabs’s veBAL, Aura coordinates incentives around vote-escrowed tokens to boost yield potential and governance power of DeFi liquidity providers, governance token stakers and voters.


The synergies between Balancer and Aura are widely known. The approval of this gauge for the 50/50 AURA/ETH pool will set Aura up for a successful launch period and continue to provide deep liquidity for AURA in the years to come.


  1. Governance: Provide current information on the protocol’s governance structure. Provide links to any admin and/or multisig addresses, and describe the powers afforded to these addresses. If there are plans to change the governance system in the future, please explain.

  1. Oracles: Does the protocol rely on external oracles? If so, provide details about the oracles and their implementation in the protocol.


  1. Audits: Provide links to audit reports and any relevant details about security practices.
  1. Centralization vectors: Is there any component of the protocol that has centralization vectors? E.g. if only 1 dev manages the project, that is a centralized vector. If price oracles need to be updated by a bot, that is a centralized vector. If liquidations are done by the protocol, that is also a centralization vector.

Aura is a non custodial, non pausable platform.

  1. Market History: Has the asset observed severe volatility? In the case of stablecoins, has it depegged? In the case of an unpegged asset, have there been extreme price change events in the past? Provide specific information about the Balancer pool: how long has it been active, TVL, historical volume? You must provide a direct link to the pool AND a link to your pool’s gauge.

Big fan of this proposal and think the gauge is necessary for the success of $AURA.

$AURA providing a boost for farmers will pull in a large amount of TVL for Balancer. A strong $AURA price supports a strong Balancer ecosystem with more efficient trades and deeper liquidity.


In full support as Aura is an essential layer on top of Balancer!
