SushiSwap CEO Jared Grey has initiated a pivotal proposal titled “Deploy new tokenomics for Sushi.” This initiative, which seeks to overhaul the platform’s existing token economic model, has now entered the crucial stage of community voting on Snapshot. The voting process, critical for determining the future course of SushiSwap, began recently and is set to conclude on November 25, 2023, at 1:00.
The core of the proposal is to generate a consensus within the community. Its details and the initial draft can be found on the Sushi forum, providing comprehensive insights into the proposed changes. Grey’s initiative emphasizes the need to restructure Sushi’s token model to enhance its role in the protocol’s ongoing success and contribute to its growth trajectory. Since its inception, SushiSwap has been a front-runner in tokenomics with innovative initiatives like MasterChef and xSushi. The new proposal is a culmination of feedback from both the Sushi and DeFi communities, aiming to set the platform on a sustainable growth path.
The proposed model is built on three fundamental pillars: protocol sustainability, token utility enhancement, and treasury diversification. It addresses several key challenges, including improving rewards efficiency to reduce the annual cost of Sushi emissions, establishing a balanced approach to emissions distribution, addressing financial stability concerns, recalibrating LP incentives, and revising xSushi staking mechanisms.
Furthermore, the economic model proposed scales strategically through various innovations. These include generating primary revenue from LP transactions through trading fees, income from trade fees via aggregation, potential revenue from staking rewards, and forming strategic partnerships. The model also considers the interests of key stakeholders such as Liquidity Providers, xSushi holders, traders, token projects, DAOs, and the Sushi Treasury.
The objectives of the revised proposal are manifold. They include promoting decentralized ownership, amplifying liquidity, encouraging sustainable growth, enhancing the protocol’s sustainability, bolstering $SUSHI utility, and diversifying the treasury for robust financial operations. This new model aims to enhance liquidity, offer non-dilutive token rewards, institute a balanced supply, and ensure competitiveness in the evolving DeFi landscape.
The ongoing voting process is a decisive step for SushiSwap. A positive outcome will lead to the enactment of the proposed framework, reshaping Sushi’s token model to align with its ecosystem goals, increase decentralized ownership via the DAO, realign stakeholders optimally, and promote ecosystem growth with sustainable emissions and value.
