This proposal enables the following gauges on Gnosis:
GNO: the token of GnosisDAO, which operates Gnosis Chain.
COW: the token of CowSwap the Coincidence-Of-Wants DEX.
EURe: EUR stablecoin by Monerium, regulated in the European Union.
agEUR: CDP EUR by Angle Protocol.
wxDAI: when bridging DAI to Gnosis Chain, xDAI is minted on the Gnosis Chain. Given that xDAI is the native token of GC, it needs to be wrapped to become ERC20 compatible - just as with ETH on mainnet.
The reason behind incentivizing these pools is to enhance liquidity, promote user adoption, and ensure efficient trading for the corresponding assets. Providing incentives can attract more participants, reduce slippage, and improve trade execution. Additionally, this could foster further integration and synergies between Gnosis, Balancer, CowSwap, Monerium, and Angle protocol.
This strategy follows GnosisDAOs goal to boost the DeFi ecosystem on the Gnosis Chain by creating a set of base pools with gauges similar to what other chains have previously done. Balancer is already positioned at the core of the Gnosis DeFi ecosystem with over $14M of TVL, we expect this TVL to increase significantly over the next months partially also due to these proposed gauges.
- Governance: Find more information about GnosisDAO governance here, Cow governance here, Angle governance here, MakerDAO governance here. USDC, USDT and EURe are centralized and don’t have governance.
- Oracles: the EURe/bb-ag-USD and wstETH/WETH each use a Chainlink oracle as rate provider.
- Audits: N.A.
- Centralization vectors: There are centralization risks with USDC, DAI, and EURe though the market has clearly accepted those as minor for now.

agEUR saw a depeg due to the Euler exploit but has since recovered peg and adjusted its protocol to reduce risk exposure.

eth:0xc38c5f97B34E175FFd35407fc91a937300E33860 will interact with the
0x5DbAd78818D4c8958EfF2d5b95b28385A22113Cd and call the
addGauge function with the following arguments:
0xf8C85bd74FeE26831336B51A90587145391a27Ba which corresponds to the uncapped gauge for this pool
0x7F75ecd3cFd8cE8bf45f9639A226121ca8bBe4ff which corresponds to the uncapped gauge for this pool
COW/GNO (2% cap):
0xc61e7E858b5a60122607f5C7DF223a53b01a1389 which corresponds to the uncapped gauge for this pool
