Simple Summary

Raise exchange fees of trades into iETHby 25 bp to 0.75% and on sETH by 20 bp to ‘0.50%’.

Abstract

Increasing fees by 20 bp on sETH and by 25 bp on iETH should narrow down the front-running gap which remained possible after yesterday’s rate increase.

Motivation

Analysis of on-chain data showed that front-running continued to be possible on iETH, as the synth is close to it’s lower limit. Furthermore, due to the chainlink push threshold of 0.50%, fees on sETH should be raised to match the push frequency and close up the front-running window completely. It should be mentioned that I will be advocating for lowering fees on iETH back to previous levels (and will write the needed SCCP), after the synth is frozen and the leverage is reset.
