First Horizon Protocol Community Governance Proposal

First Horizon Protocol Community Governance Proposal

Dear Horizon Protocol Community,

Horizon Protocol plans to achieve a Horizon DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) Community Governance in the future. We want to empower the community to steer Horizon Protocol’s progress and direction. To ensure our governance process is successful we will begin by using Snapshot, a gas-free voting method, to conduct our community governance votes.

We’ll be running our first vote on a proposal to choose the zUSD/BUSD LP pool lock period.

[Proposal] zUSD/BUSD LP Pool Lock Period

The 7-day lock period is to reduce volatility in liquidity provision and keep liquidity locked in for a longer period of time. More liquidity in the zUSD/BUSD LP benefits the protocol by increasing the stability of the $1.00 zUSD open-market peg and allowing users to trade zUSD with less price impact.

Since zUSD is used to burn debt and manage a HZN holder’s C-Ratio on Horizon Genesis, it was proposed by the community to have a shorter lock period in order to have better accessibility to staked zUSD and better manage the user’s C-Ratio during potential HZN price volatility. This will help make it easier for users who stake their zUSD to claim their rewards each week and prevent their account from getting flagged for liquidation.
