Simple Summary

After a successful token swap, the recently acquired SDL will be used to redirect SDL emissions to the USDs pool on Saddle Exchange. A reduction in SPA emissions on the pool can maintain a constant TVL thanks to the new SDL emissions. The proposal suggests extending the farm until new SDL emissions are added, at which point the rate will be reduced by 50%.


Extend the USDs farm on Saddle with its current emissions rate of 111.111K SPA/day, funded by the Bootstrap Liquidity budget. This emission rate will last until October 7th. After October 7th the SPA emission rate will be reduced by 50% and subsidized with new SDL emissions.


Reduce liquidity bootstrapping burn rate: Once the SDL is emitting starting October 7th, reduce SPA emission rate by 50%.


Sperax executed a successful token swap with Saddle Finance. The purpose of this swap was to give each respective group governing power in the others ecosystem by staking the tokens. The 2,000,000 SDL will staked and used to redirect as many SDL to the USDs pool on Saddle as possible. Additional SDL which will be emitted to the pool after our participation in the Minichef Reward Allocation vote. The upcoming vote is for emissions which will start on October 7th.

Technical Specification

Continue the USDs Saddle farm in its current iteration. 111.111K SPA/day in rewards to be supplied from the Bootstrap Liquidity budget until October 7th at which point the emission rate will be reduced to 55,555 SPA/day until another governance proposal suggests otherwise.

Big supporter of this.
Let’s assess the TVL and APR of the pool after the minichef allocation for October 7th - 21st.

After a few weeks we will have a better grasp on the necessary SPA emission rate to hit a healthy TVL.


Good amount of liquidity in that farm. I think its necessary to bridge the gap to gauge control, then can reconsider protocol emissions. I support this proposal.
