SCCP-142: Increase L2 Inflationary Rewards to 75k


Simple Summary

Increase the inflationary rewards on L2 to 75k snx from 50k snx per week.


In order to further incentivize minters to shift their holdings to L2, this sccp proposes to increase inflationary rewards on L2 to 75k snx per week.


Despite that inflationary rewards on L2 are around a third higher then those on L1, the amount of snx staked on optimism remains relatively low, with the peg consistently at a premium. This SCCP aims at further incentivizing minters to move their stack to L2. It is worth nothing a few things here:

  • Minters who are stuck on L1 because of debt can repay their debt with their staked SNX using the flash loan tool available on L1 which does not charge any fees.
  • Those who manage to mint on L2 can currently take advantage of the 10-15% premium on sUSD, minting sUSD on L2, swapping the sUSD to ETH on uniswap to hedge their debt and wait for the generalized Wrapper Factor to go live in few weeks which is expected to bring the sUSD to dollar parity.
  • The collateralization will be lowered eventually on L2 to match that on L1 (in the coming weeks).
  • Shorts, futures, Lyra and Thales are currently or are expected to be fully deployed L2 in the coming weeks, after optimisim moves to OVM 2.0, expected on the 28th of October.
