[BIP-616] Enable gauge for sDAI/aUSDC Rehype pool [Gnosis]

PR with Payload


This is a proposal to enable one uncapped Balancer gauge for an sDAI/aUSDC Rehype Pool on Gnosis Chain.

Rehype Pools hold at least one Aave deposit receipt token and thus allow LPs to receive the lending market yield, in addition to swap fee revenue, and third-party incentives. Rehype Pools build on top of the E-CLP’s asymmetric concentrated liquidity profile, improving capital efficiency on two fronts. As per previous arrangements between Balancer and Gnosis this pool shall not bear any protocol fees for the time being.

Protocol description

  • “Savings Dai (sDAI) is a tokenized representation of Dai deposited in the Dai Savings Rate (DSR) offered by MakerDAO. The sDAI token enables users to receive returns on their DSR deposits while still being able to transfer, stake, lend and use it in any way they want.” - Spark
  • aUSDC is the deposit receipt token issued by the Aave protocol to lenders of USDC. Since aTokens are rebasing, this pool uses BGD Labs’s statA wrapper that is a repricing representation of statA tokens that reflects the accruing lending yield.


Gyroscope is expanding to Gnosis Chain.



The Gyroscope Protocol will be governed by a DAO and relevant stakeholder with the full launch on Ethereum. For now, the FTL Labs multi-sig can pause the pool, change the swap fee and set the protocol fee. As a custom pool by Gyroscope, the E-CLP will be controlled by Gyroscope governance upon its launch.




Audit reports by Nethermind, Trail of Bits, and Runtime Verification can be accessed here (the E-CLP is called the “CEMM” in these reports). In addition, the E-CLP code has been live in production on Polygon since November 2022.

Centralization vectors

No centralization vectors. The FTL Labs team’s multi-sig can - currently - pause the pool, change the swap fee and set the protocol fee.

Market History

The Gyroscope Protocol is live on Ethereum since EOY23, with E-CLPs on several other chains. Details available here .


As per “Motivation”.
