Hello Marc, thanks for the good wishes and suggestions!
We’ll open the github repo by the time this proposal is up for voting. The draft will be edited by the time!
They will be aligned with the current weight of the pools for SONNE distribution speeds. The future holds if there will be new collaterals/assets in the protocol, but the $OPs will be rewarded based on their weights for speeds at the time.
For example right now, stablecoins have each 3/16 weight and wETH and OP have 2/16 weight respectfully. ( If 3 $SONNE is going to sUSD reward pool, 2 $SONNE is going to wETH reward pool, so if 3 $OP is going to sUSD supply incentive pool, 2 $OP will go to wETH supply incentive pool).
SONNE/USDC pool on Velodrome will be incentivized with 10%. Updating the draft.
Updating the other team members as well.
Our long-term goal is to align not just accepting tokens like ETH/OP but liquid financial NFTs to be accepted in our lending protocol. For example, when veVELO is liquid enough (probably not happening in short term), we will consider listing it as a collateralizable asset. This will also enable us to accept real world assets (like real estate) in the very long term. We are already brainstorming and in touch with Turkish real estate exchange but this will take a very long time as well. We think and believe that in order for blockchains and DeFi to achieve its full potential, it needs to start gaining traction in areas where it hasn’t already touched. We are here not just to provide on-chain solutions, but experiment on off-chain ramp.
But for now, we are sticking to the safest approach possible.
For Sonne to achieve $1B to $2B level, Optimism ecosystem needs to gain traction as well. Vampiring AAVE will not be enough for us. We believe that incentives are running the market for now, and Optimism grants are doing a great work onboarding new builders, but the ecosystem in general lacks incentives for onboarding new users. With the unique staking model of ours, we are able to offer good incentives while holding the price of the token (it’s traded more than the LGE price), and 20% yield on stablecoins like USDC is just hard to deny. We already partnered up with Reaper Farm, and will be partnering up with Beefy which enables huge crowd action towards Optimism ecosystem, and Sonne.
Thanks for the suggestions again, editing the draft, and will appreciate the future feedbacks as well! If there are still questions on your mind, or if our answers didn’t satisfy, we’ll try to answer them again!
