The proposed StakeWise Liquidity Committee (SLC) will help StakeWise DAO optimize its liquidity strategy across the protocol’s tokens, efficiently deploy liquidity incentives, and monitor the effectiveness of these liquidity strategies. The SLC must have the right members if it is to be effective in achieving its mandate. The next stage is for the DAO to provide feedback on the proposed members of the SLC ahead of a DAO vote to determine whether it is implemented.
The proposed SLC consists of 8 members in total, 3 core team members and 5 community members. It is vital that the SLC’s community members are experts in liquidity and up to date on all the latest liquidity trends. StakeWise has been fortunate to have such experts assist with the initial liquidity strategies of osETH and SWISE ready for the launch of StakeWise V3 and the core team would propose that these individuals take up positions on the SLC to formalize their role within the DAO. The proposed members are:
Figue, Founder of Paladin (@Figue_me) - Paladin is a marketplace for DeFi voting with a focus on the Curve and Balancer ecosystems. There is no one better to help StakeWise DAO navigate the intricacies of these marketplaces and establish connections with large vote holders to help optimize the allocation of capital across the voting ecosystems.
Archer, Strategy at Tokemak (@Archer_MD_) - Tokemak is a decentralized market-making protocol for creating sustainable DeFi liquidity, with a specific focus on the allocation of capital provisions for liquid staking protocols. As a strategist at Tokemak, Archer has the insight and expertise to help shape StakeWise’s liquidity on both Mainnet and L2s.
Matthew Graham, Head of DeFi at Llama and Founder of TokenLogic (@Matthew_Graham_) - Llama works with leading DAOs, such as Aave and Maker, on their treasury and liquidity management. TokenLogic specializes in data analytics, with a focus on DAO liquidity, alongside treasury management and financial reporting. Matthew and his team at TokenLogic recently designed Aave’s liquidity strategy for its new stablecoin, GHO, and would bring a wealth of experience in liquidity strategy design and liquidity analytics to StakeWise DAO.
Rhett Shipp, Founder of Gravita (@RhettShipp) - Rhett is embedded in the DeFi building community and a thought leader in protocol design, including protocol liquidity. Rhett also manages capital for liquid DeFi funds and consequently has a deep knowledge of DeFi’s liquidity ecosystems.
0xWenMoon, Treasury Manager of Umami (@0xWenMoon) - WenMoon is a pioneer in the liquidity space, a superuser of AMMs, and actively manages the protocol-owned liquidity of Umami Finance. They are also an advisor for multiple liquidity-related projects, such as Camelot AMM where they assist in treasury deployment and AMM design. 0xWenMoon knows AMMs and their intricacies inside out on Mainnet and L2s.
Each one of these members has been instrumental to the design of the SWISE and osETH liquidity strategies and have expressed a desire to continue this work as formal members of the DAO’s SLC. As well as monthly liquidity reports, the SLC will also provide a quarterly report on the activity of its members and provide a route to replace members due to a lack of participation should the need arise.
Please take the time to review the proposed member list and ask any clarifying questions on the SLC structure or its proposed members.
