The purpose of this document is to provide a high level summary of mStable for the proposed treasury swap.
Proposed swap high level notes:
- Tokens to be held for a minimum of 12 months.
- Exchange rate set by a 30 day moving price average.
- Target acquisition size of 250,000 MTA tokens.
This would be the first treasury swap for the Threshold DAO and signal to other DAOs we are open for business.
Joint marketing campaign.
Increases the APY that TBTC holders can earn. Participation in governance earns MTA rewards (~14%).
Currently the tBTC v2 Feeder pool receives approximately 0.25% of rewards.
Purchasing 250,000 tokens would buy sufficient vote weight to increase that to approximately 3%. Note that this would change with additional partner staking.
Assuming constant price and reward allocations it would take approximately one year for the initial investment to be distributed as rewards to stakers in the feeder pool. Note that this is a ballpark calculation and excludes any increase in vote power from staking.
- Vote weight receives a multiplier based on time staked and quests completed.
- 3 week cooldown period + 2 week unstaking window.
- Withdrawal fee of 7.5% for the first 3 weeks that decays over 48 weeks to 0%.
- Earn a share of monthly staking rewards (approximately 20% APY).
- MTA staking rewards unlock over time
- MTA rewards for feeder pool vaults
- 1/3 of MTA rewards are claimable immediately
- 2/3 of MTA rewards are streamed linearly after 26 weeks
T tokens could be staked to generate revenue for the mStable DAO Treasury either in the coverage pool or as a network operator.
Diversification of DAO income streams.
This is an opportunity to build on the existing partnership with shared governance and treasury diversifications.

Q: How are token prices determined?
A: Global average price as recorded on CoinGecko for the day in question.
Q: What day does the 30 day moving price average start?
A: Once the proposal has been passed in both DAOs.
Q: What date does the token hold period begin?
A: On the date that tokens are exchanged.
Q: Why not do a larger transaction?
A: This is the Threshold DAOs first treasury swap and will be a learning experience. If the swap proves successful and governance power in mStable generates the expected value for members of the Threshold Network DAO then the treasury would evaluate putting forward a second swap to accrue additional gauge weight.
Q: Can the quests in mStable to increase vote weight be done by the DAO?
A: Yes this can be completed with Wallet Connect.
