Pickle Finance Community Blog Nov 14th

3 min readNov 14, 2020

Hello Picklers.

Welcome to the first ever Pickle Finance community blog.

I hope it is a great resource to stay up to date with what’s been going on and celebrate the community.

Let’s dive into the brine!

PIP 17 Enacted, BTC + DAI Rewards Boosted

PIP 17 went into effect, re-allocating 5% of rewards from the PICKLE/ETH LP (70% — 65%) to prenBTCCRV (5% — 8%) and pDAI (2% — 4%).

This proposal makes Pickle a highly attractive option for those keeping their funds in BTC, so spread the word today!

Withdrawal Fees Removed

The community passed a vote removing withdrawal fees with 85.33% support.

This will make using Pickle’s pools even more attractive and raise total value locked.

Pickle Analytics

Thanks to some incredible work from 0xBoxer you can now see detailed visual data on pickle jars.

Forum Highlight: The Future of UNI Rewards

Provided by yyctrader + Jintao

As many of you know Uniswap confirmed in a recent governance call that they will stop giving liquidity providers rewards from the 17th of November.

There’s been some fantastic discussion around what the Pickle community should do, kicked off by Dr Eggplant’s initial proposal to:

  • reallocate rewards to other farms
  • increase Pickle staking rewards triple digit figures
  • allow Pickle stakers to vote

There are currently five options being discussed:
A — renBTC +17%
B- renBTC +11%, 3CRV +4%, cDAI +2%
C renBTC +7%, 3CRV +5%, cDAI +5%
D renBTC +3%, 3CRV +7%, cDAI +7%
E — 3CRV +17%

You can see the project weekly profit from fees for each proposal above.

Conversation With Larry the Cucumber

Community Member Spotlight: Rooster Cogburn

This was a tough one, with so many dedicated Picklers across Twitter.

Rooster Cogburn lived up to his name, landing a savage burn on Harvest Finance’s measly 5.12% APR renBTC farm.

Keep up the good work Rooster, we appreciate you!

241 WETH of Weekly Staking Rewards

This week a whopping 241 WETH has been deposited from pickle jars to reward stakers. Great work everyone, enjoy your Pickles!
