[BIP-625] Enable gauge for WETH/rETH on [Gnosis]

PR with Payload


  • This is a proposal to enable one uncapped Balancer gauge for WETH/rETH on Gnosis chain.
  • E-CLP’s asymmetric concentrated liquidity profile offers capital efficiency improvements. As per previous arrangements between Balancer and Gnosis this pool shall not bear any protocol fees for the time being.

Protocol Description:

  • [When staking ETH with RocketPool] you will be given a token called rETH. rETH represents both how much ETH you deposited, and when you deposited it. The ratio includes rewards that Rocket Pool node operators earn from: The Beacon Chain itself, Priority fees from block proposals, and MEV rewards from block proposals. - RocketPool
  • WETH is a wrapper-token and an ERC-20 token representing ETH at a 1:1 ratio.
  • The E-CLP uses an internal conversion to avoid a unit drift of yield-accruing tokens.


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”.
