dHEDGE DAO’s Open Call for Managers received massive interest from both professional managers and dHEDGE power users alike. We received more demand than expected, so the community members responsible for the initial selection of managers have suggested that the dHEDGE DAO increase its investment cap to 651,000 sUSD from the 500,000 sUSD initially proposed.
In addition, Synthetix will invest 100,000 sUSD into a dHEDGE pool managed by one of their community members.
One more thing…..
We’re also very happy to announce that some of the greatest supporters of dHEDGE and globally recognized investors Framework Ventures, DeFiance Capital, Divergence Ventures, Mechanism Capital, Klein Blue Capital and Alameda Research have together committed to invest at least another 550,000 sUSD into these managers.
Together with the managers’ own investments into their pools the grand total that will be deployed over the coming days and weeks is likely to exceed 1,800,000 sUSD.
The dHEDGE DAO is thrilled to support larger established investors in addition to smaller managers who are building a track record — after all, the ethos of dHEDGE is to use blockchain technology to democratize investments and lower the barrier to entry for everyone.
The DHT Stakers, that have staked the DHT-USDC Uniswap LP token on the dHEDGE platform will have the final say in the DAO’s investment decision. Stakers can shortly head to https://gov.dhedge.org/ where there will be a vote going on for each of the proposed investments in the table below. The votes will remain open until 1pm SGT Friday November 27. If a manager receives more ‘Yes’ than ‘No’ votes, the DAO will proceed with the investment.
The investments held by the DAO will be excluded from the upcoming Performance Mining program.
Once native DHT Staking is live, DHT token holders will control the pool tokens held in the DAO. Pool tokens are accumulated in the DAO through a 10% admin fee imposed on manager’s fees as well as through direct DAO investment programs like this.
