Protocol Description:

What is C.R.E.A.M. Finance?
CREAM Finance is a decentralized lending protocol for individuals and protocols to access financial services. The protocol is permissionless, transparent, and non-custodial.
Currently, CREAM is live on Polygon, Arbitrum and Binance Smart Chain .
CREAM Finance’s smart contract money markets are focused on longtail assets – with the goal of increasing capital efficiency for all assets in crypto markets.
Users are able to lend any supported assets on our markets, and use the provided capital as collateral to borrow another supported asset.
CREAM offers a wide range of tokens on our money markets, including: stablecoins (USDT, USDC, BUSD); interest-bearing stablecoins defi tokens LP-tokens and other cryptocurrencies. This list is not exhaustive.


This proposal aims to add veBAL gauge for the CREAM/WETH 80/20 pool. BAL incentives would help deepen CREAM liquidity as 24-hour trading volume on exchange averages $2 million, it would bring sizable CREAM trading volume on Balancer.


  1. Governance:
    CREAM tokens serve as the governance token for the C.R.E.A.M. Finance network. CREAM token holders can vote on governance proposals through CREAM’s snapshot. CREAM forum is also used to discuss potential protocol changes and improvements.

  2. Oracles:
    We have Chainlink as our main price oracle.

  3. Audits:
    Audit Report: publications/CREAMSummary.pdf at master · trailofbits/publications · GitHub

  4. Centralization vectors:
    The token is not upgradeable or pausable.
    The owner has limited minting capabilities and cannot blacklist the contract.
    The team behind the token is known and can be held responsible for abuse.

  5. Market History:
    Although CREAM protocol suffered a flash loan attack on its ETH platform, all other platforms are
    currently functioning optimally.
    According to defillama Total Value Locked is $318.06

What’s the thinking around who is going to vote for this CREAM pool? Are you planning to bribe?

We are in the process of acquiring BAL for votelock. And together with some cream users already invested in veBAL, we are confident to meet the minimum quorum during vote.

Would appreciate this proposal be pushed to a snapshot vote.
