Motivations and Opportunity:

As many projects have realized, this model can be beneficial in a number of different ways for protocols. The ve-model encourages and emphasizes long-term decision making given users typical long-term commitment to the protocol. Additionally, the ve-model has shown that aligned value and incentives are often present because participants are incentivized to hold their respective protocol token. Finally, supply and demand mechanisms are optimized within this model, prominently highlighted through vote-locked tokens relative to total supply.

The picture below is a collection of major projects that have implemented the ve-model, or are going to implement the ve-model (the list is not exhaustive).

As a result of the aforementioned benefits, there are an increasing number of DeFi products that have started gaining implementation and adoption throughout the market.

Due to the nature of the ve-model structure, which encourages long-term locking, retail investors and ve-model token holders may suffer a short term liquidity loss. Because of this, as well as the diverse nature of ve-model projects existent in DeFi currently, there is a need for a generic DeFi protocol that builds on top of ve-model projects (to work as CVX to CRV) to increase their liquidity and demand of their governance tokens, while increasing the usability of their own products.

veToken Finance Governance token: VE3D ( Delegated ve(3,3) )

The benefits of Staked ve3D holder:

  • Receive profits generated from owned liquidity, and protocol fees from LP pools (curve, pickle, etc).
  • A liquidity boost package for generic DeFi protocols to improve their liquidity at less cost by using a single token (xVE3D) to vote on all of the gauge weights from the ve-projects that are supported by veToken Finance.
  • With more and more projects starting to adopt the ve-model, xVE3D will be used for permisionsless integrationg of future ve-model projects, and decide bond allocation distributions.

Benefits for regular DeFi liquidity providers:
