SIP - 57: Introduce protocol owned liquidity


Introduce protocol owned liquidity via sales of SPA bonds using the bond protocol and treasury tokens.


With SIP-56 the protocol aims to significantly reduce emissions. This could lead to a reduction of incentives for liquidity providers of the SPA/USDs farm. With the current market conditions it is important to have deeper liquidity for SPA token and not completely rely on non sticky external liquidity providers.

Having protocol owned liquidity will also allow the protocol to earn from the volatile crypto markets and reinvest the earnings back into the improvement of liquidity for the protocol. Also providing liquidity in a tighter range will allow the protocol to have greater liquidity depth.

Technical Specifications

SPA tokens will be auctioned using the sequential Dutch auction method, vesting over 7 days and with a maximum discount to current price of 5%. Maximum USDs purchased in a month will be in the range of 1,000 USDs per month. In case the bond market fails, the discount can be further increased upto a maximum of 10%.

The USDs tokens will be paired with the required amount of SPA tokens from protocol Treasury to provide liquidity on Uniswap v3 within the tight range of 0.001 USDs/ SPA to 0.006 USDs/ SPA. All fee earnings would either go back to the protocol Treasury or reinvested into providing liquidity.

“Maximum USDs purchased in a month will be in the range of 1,000 USDs per month.”

That means max protocol owned liquidity is $2k per month, right?
