[BIP-284] Enable wbETH/wstETH Gauge [Ethereum]


This pool uses the composable stable pool factory and contains two liquid staking derivatives of ethereum, wbETH and wstETH. The reason for this pool deployment is to include Binance’s beacon ETH token in the Balancer ecosystem. Pairing with wstETH will add additional yield for LPs and Balancer as opposed to WETH. This pool is a win win for all parties. The pool will be included as core pool meaning the revenue it earns will be recycled as bribes as described in BIP-19.

Protocol Description:

wbETH is Binance’s liquid staking derivative for ethereum, while wstETH is Lido’s wrapped staking derivative as featured in many other Balancer pools.


Described in the summary, Balancer should welcome more LSDs into the ecosystem based on the mutual benefits they bring to LPs and the ecosystem.


  1. Governance: [wbETH](What Is WBETH | Binance Support FAQ linked as governance is not applicapable, wstETH.
  2. Oracles: See each rate provider contract linked here respectively wbETH, wstETH ,
  3. Audits: See wstETH.
  4. Centralization vectors: wbETH is from Binance and therefore inherently has centralization risks. For Lido and wstETH please read here.
  5. Market History: See wbETH , wstETH
  6. Value: Balancer will earn the protocol fee on all assets in the pool and so will LPs. The BIP-19 flywheel will incentivize TVL to grow here with trading volume and our staked ethereum pillars will continue to have Balancer as their ideal liquidity destination.
