To research and analyze historical incentives data to inform the build of a new incentives system for Osmosis. Hathor will also lead the creation of a governance proposal to implement this new incentives system and, if successful, will be a part of a new incentives working group that will provide on-going oversight over LP incentives for Osmosis. Milestone 1 = submission of a governance proposal for new incentives system based on research findings; Milestone 2 = successful governance proposal and implementation of the new incentives system.
The new incentives model will optimize LP incentive allocations across pools and significantly reduce costs for Osmosis by ensuring that the protocol is not overpaying for liquidity. The end result is an improved trading experience for users by reducing slippage for under-incentivized pairs. The model will also reduce the governance overhead associated with regular incentive adjustment proposals, as it will be semi-dynamic and automated.
