50% of GEL tokens are allocated to a Community Development Fund. These are unlocked tokens.
Why don’t we put them - or at least some of them - to work? It feels like there are opportunities here to make this asset pool yield bearing for the protocol, rather than just sat there waiting to be distributed.
Why not use a % of these tokens to set up a set of G-UNI GEL pools to essentially further grow the GEL treasury? This is distinct from liquidity mining in that it would essentially be the protocol treasury that would be benefiting - although clearly these could be used to support rewards further down the line.
Rather than going into specific details at this stage it would be interesting to hear the perceived pros and cons of doing something like this. Thoughts?
