Celeste Staking Reward Funding Proposal #1

Celeste Staking Reward Funding Proposal #1

Proposal in Honeypot

Proposal Information

Proposal description:
This proposal would provided 10 HNY for the Celeste Staking Rewards in the first period. Each period is 30 days and any HNY that is sent to the reward module address 0x41aB49872ED459C840d0CAecd47FcDC201C48307 will be used to reward participants in Celeste probabilistically based on the amount Honey they have staked over the reward period. For more information about how the Staking Reward module works, please review the Celeste Wiki

Proposal Rationale

At the time of writing this proposal there was 460 HNY staked in celeste and 54 unique keepers. Assuming this number is constant, a 10 HNY per staking period reward would work out to ~25% staking return without considering the possible additional earnings that could be made from dispute fees.

This seems like a reasonably strong incentive to encourage more people to participate and stake in Celeste, while not being so high that we are likely to cause significant destabilization of the Honey market as this is still relatively small compared to our overall monthly outflows.

Expected duration or delivery date (if applicable):
N/A funds would be sent directly to the Celeste reward module.

That’s a good proposal

Thanks for putting this proposal up luke. I was wondering what the return would be like and how it would incentivise more users to participate in Celeste. I think this would be a great return rate to attract the initial wave of stakers and hopefully with further integrations with other projects, we could substitute this staking rewards with actual dispute fee! I really hope there is enough HNY around to actually vote this proposal in! I guess its mostly up to the seeds and whales at this stage!
