Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool

Radicle is progressively decentralizing its network by distributing decision-making power to a wider group of people.

This is a proposal to make 3.75% of the Radicle token supply available for interested parties within the Radicle community. It uses Balancer, a decentralized exchange and leverages a mechanism called Liquidity Bootstrapping.

The purpose of this proposal is to:

  • Distribute the Radicle token among the wider Radicle community, beyond early contributors and team members.
  • Build deep liquidity for the Radicle network, setting it up for long-term success.
  • Begin price discovery for the Radicle token.

Proceeds from the event will be held by the Radicle Treasury, a smart contract fully controlled by the Radicle token holders.

What is a Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool?

Balancer’s Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool (LBP) is a Balancer pool that automatically adjusts its token weights over time. This applies downwards price pressure on the token and disincentivizes front-running, speculation and whale buying. See Balancer’s Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool FAQ for more information.

Why a Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool?

The Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool is a battle-tested mechanism for price discovery and liquidity building. It’s been successfully used by numerous teams including Hydra, APY Finance, and Perpetual protocol.

How was this proposal discussed?

This proposal was put together by early contributors behind the Radicle project.

Moving forward, all proposals will be discussed openly and developed through the formal governance process. This process is meant to be owned and developed collectively by the Radicle community. More information can be found on https://community.radworks.org.

For how long will tokens be locked to buyers from the LBP :question:


They will be immediately available.


You need RAD token holders to delegate to you. Once the Balancer LBP proposal goes through and RAD is available to a wider audience you could start building trust in the ecosystem to get delegations from the community.


Look like this is a great way to ensure RAD come to mass adoption :smiley:

I saw some people got the vote on Sybil, where it come from ?

To my understanding the voters set today consists of Team members, Early Supporters, Seeders or the Foundation. I don’t actually know where votes came from exactly.

More information are in this blog: https://radicle.xyz/blog/introducing-rad.html


this looks great. anyone knows how to vote?

Yeah you can vote via: https://gov.radicle.network/#/proposals/radicle/3

thanks, i see i have 0 votes. do you konw how to get votes?

You need RAD to vote. So far only Early supporters and contributors have token. Currently there is a proposal for a Liquidity Bootstrapping Pool on Balancer. If that passes, 3.75% tokens from genesis will be distributed to a wider audience. Assuming that happens, there would be a set of tokens in the free market.
