Temp check: Update swap fee

Hey, This is a small temperature and a consensus check to discuss about what does others feel about increasing the swap fee for a few pairs.

Network Pair Current Proposed
Gnosis Chain SWPR / XDAI 0.25% 1%
Gnosis Chain DXD / WETH 0.25% 1%
Arbitrum SWPR / WETH 0.25% 1%

Reasons:

SWPR and DXD are illiquid across chains. This will hopefully incentivise new LPs to add more DXD and SWPR to LP.
Reduce the Impermanent Loss for LPs.

  • Update to 1%

I wish there were more options status quo or 1%.

I’m in favor of a swap fee increase on all of the pools you mentioned, but quadrupling the swap fee from 0.25% to 1% seems like a big jump.

I’d favor a more incremental choice and then adjust fees based on volume. Or maybe try out different fee amounts on different chains.

Hey Chris, I had initial thoughts to propose or suggest for asking a 0.5% fee and a 1% fee, but wanted to keep it aligned with what Uniswap offers for now. Have heard a few aggregators struggling to integrate Swapr because of the custom fee setup Swapr has and didnt want to stretch it too far. :slight_smile:

Hey, not sure if I’m late to the party…
Just wanted to point out the fee is not directly related to impermanent loss (which happens due to price moving away for the LP deposit price.)

Increasing the fee makes the pool more attractive to LP but less attractive to traders. Meaning some trading volume could be shifting to other pools. In this case LPs will get bigger cut but from a smaller pie.
So overall I don’t think it is clear this move will achieve the intended outcome of generating more LP revenue and consequently increasing profitability or providing liquidity
