Votium is a tool to bribe voters to push liquidity incentives toward a specific Curve pool. This proposal entails the utilization of Votium to bring deposits to iTokens. This will be a multi-step process involving the creation of a Curve factory pool for iTokens and allocating funds to bribe voters.
The process for creating a Curve factory pool is now fully permissionless. This will allow us to be able to create an iToken pool without significant struggle. The iToken pool will likely consist of iUSDC, iUSDT, and iDAI as these are the three stable pairs. These are also the most borrowed tokens generally so it is vital to attract liquidity.
The bribing process requires the allocation of treasury assets to bribe voters to vote for directing incentives to our Curve pool. Votes occur bi-weekly for directing incentives and we will need to bribe on the votes so emissions are directed towards our pools. The asset used can be native tokens, but need to be whitelisted on Votium. After the whitelisting process is completed and the Curve factory pool is created, only then will we be able to submit bribes for the voting process.
This post is to field the initial interest in this and discuss allocation amounts towards the bribing initiative.
