Considering the brutal bear conditions, I believe it is prudent to perform consolidation & simplification - acknowledging what liquidity has low demand. Thus, I would propose changes to “maintenance mode” a.k.a. 1 SHD of emissions per day.
I would propose the following to be converted to maintenance mode:
- SILK / IST
Additionally, as per @Jiricepelka.scrt recommendations, I would propose we remove the following pairs:
- stkATOM / ATOM
- qATOM / ATOM
- stkATOM / SILK
- qATOM / SILK
To replace these, two stableswap pairs would be started:
- stkATOM / stATOM
- qATOM / stATOM
Trades then look like: qATOM ↔ stATOM → SILK or ATOM ↔ stATOM ↔ stkATOM
This easily cuts 100+ SHD per day from emissions, and puts our staking derivative pairing infrastructure in a much more effective set up. Partner teams may be unhappy to hear about the cuts, but they are free to bring whatever incentives they’d like to these pairs - ultimately emission cuts during the bear market make a lot of sense, and most partners will understand / prefer to reduce emissions as is.
Note that in a bull it makes a lot of sense to revitalize some of these pairs.
