There’s been some recent proposals that introduce tBTC related costs for the DAO. While I understand the technical motives for everything, I think it is convenient that we see a more comprehensive cost analysis for tBTC (v1 and v2), including something on what’s the expectation for making it self-sustainable.
For the moment, we have a bunch of tBTC v1 and v2 related costs that the DAO is either already or planning to take care of:
- Bootstrap nodes
- Relay Maintainer
- Incentives for migrating tBTC v1 to v2
- Gas reimbursements for v2 nodes
What’s the overall monthly or annual cost for the DAO, taking all the above costs into consideration? Is there any other expected cost that’s not being currently discussed? I think an analysis that provides some answers to these questions is something needed to properly analyze further proposals, as well as future rewards allocation.
