Swap UNI for ETH and wBTC and provide liquidity

Instead of incentivizing LP we can use treasury to buy ETH and BTC and add permanent liquidity to Uniswap.

Benefits:
-We are swaping UNI for top assets which value will go up over time.
-There is no dump of new tokens. (New tokens are backed with underlying asset)
-We are earning more from every transaction and LP is growing organically.
-No risk that someone can take liquidity from us.
-As Bitcoin price and Ethereum price go up, the value of UNI assets go up as well.

Risk:
Is it wBTC really decentralized (safe)?

It sounds as win win solution for me.

Please write your thoughts on this idea.
Thank you.

It’s an interesting idea, but I wouldn’t advocate doing it with UNI, it seems like we’d be selling our most valuable asset at a discount to do that. Instead I would like to explore taking the fees that accumulate to the UNI in the treasury to re-invest in LP pools

PS - I’m saying this assuming that we stop doing large scale liquidity mining…

Accumulating ETH and BTC sounds more like an investment, UNI price at the moment is pure speculation as there is not anything certain that allows us to make evaluation.

I agree that’s a great idea if we talk about BTC and ETH LPs but that is a few months away.

Let’s not waist our assets on liquidity mining because:

  1. It is not necessary at the moment
  2. Doesn’t give us a long term effect
  3. Dilutes every UNI holder by increasing supply.

It’s interesting that no one is interesting in this!

I think you’re on a valid track here, at least proposing to actively manage the UNI treasury in theory sounds like a good idea.

In practice I’m not sure that it will be easy to coordinate managing the UNI treasury, given the barriers to passing proposals for this project in particular.

Are there any governance token projects with community distribution that actively manage their treasury? Would be cool to see how others are doing it.

EDIT: Looks like AAVE and SNX might actually do this - still need to learn more though, reading about it here: Maker Stability Module, inspired by Aave and Synthetix - Governance - MakerDAO

Maybe we can put UNI in a Maker vault, and then lend the Dai on Compound.

great proposal Having own LP tokens will ensure that liquidity will never be lacking

Swap treasury for ETH and BTC and lock permanent liquidity.
This way, we will grow with ETH and BTC, we will earn more and more fees every day…
