Decreasing CVP Inflation

To reflect Proposal 22’s accepted changes, Liquidity Mining rewards are decreased across all Indices.

Here you can see all currently active rewards:

A quick summary of PowerPool’s best farming opportunities:

1. YETI-ETH pair on Sushi offers 60% APY thanks to the Onsen program’s rewards

-> Add ETH to YETI, supply liquidity to Sushi, and stake SLP token in Onsen

2. PIPT-ETH pair offers 86% APY based on CVP LM Program

-> Supply PIPT + ETH to Sushi pair and after that stake SLP token in the Farming section at powerindex.io (selecting PIPT)

3. $YLA offers incredible APY (up to 90%!) on stablecoins thanks to the CVP Boost applied to YLA-USDC pair LP tokens (SLP).

4. $ASSY offers 25% APY, without a boost, and up to 75% APY. If you hold $ASSY and have additional $CVP, you can supply it to the Boost and receive a higher APY. Additionally, ASSY-ETH Sushiswap pair offers 48% APY thanks to the Onsen program.

Proposal 31: apply CVP boost for YLA, not YLA-USDC SLP

Using CVP Boost for the YLA-USDC SLP token is inefficient and too complicated, and costly for PowerPool users. We should use CVP boost for YLA staking - this will simplify things and offer additional interest for just holding YLA. Additionally that, we should prolong CVP Boost for YLA to next month.

If proposal accepted, YLA Boost program participation will be seamless and capital efficient:

  1. Use ZAP to mint YLA: YLA yields around 30% $APY

  2. Stake $YLA & $CVP to get 80% plus APY on all your capital

  3. Profit 🤑

Proposal 29: Amending the Allocation for Beta and Gamma Testers & Launching a New Vesting Contract

Proposal 29 was accepted by the community, resulting in:

  • 9,600,000 CVP burn (9.6% CVP total supply) from the Beta and Gamma's Vesting contract

  • New total CVP supply of 90,400,000

  • Smart-contract with individual vesting rules for testes will be deployed to give the PowerPool community tools to work with testers.

This proposal sparked a heated debate. A group of active testers quickly collaborated with the Management Board (Authors of the proposal). It issued a follow-up proposal to set a trial period of changes for individual tester's allocations to 4 months.
