The vote handed updates to “implement new swap mechanics, in order that Max Swap Quantity of USDN>WAVES swaps will depend upon the present BR worth.” The replace elevated the utmost allowable worth of $USDN that may be swapped into $WAVES relying on the backing ratio (BR.) The BR is the share of $WAVES tokens in relation to the $USDN provide.
One other vote to “Enhance protocol payment for USDN>WAVES swaps” was rejected by the group, with 62% voting “No.”
The group did move a 3rd proposal to “implement new BR safety mechanics, in order that BR can’t go decrease than 10%.” This replace is probably going a part of the “pressing measures” required to “stabilize the protocol and make sure the safety of its reserves.”
Including safety to the backing ratio to make sure it can’t go outdoors a set vary is a part of the technique to defend the peg. Nonetheless, given the stablecoin has not recovered from its 4% drop, questions need to be raised in regards to the replace’s effectiveness.
A ultimate proposal additionally handed with a large majority of 95%, remodeling the reward distribution for gNSBT staked tokens. Beforehand, $SURF token holders solely acquired 2% of rewards; the proposal will increase this primarily based on particular market circumstances.
