The fee transition proposal originally posted back in July that would collect small fees on certain Uniswap liquidity pools is being put up for a vote again. However, there are 2 measures of consensus and rejection taking place at the same time.
According to the official admin website, Uniswap’s Fee Switch proposal will start voting on-chain within 14 days. Once voting is opened, UNI holders will have 7 days to vote.
The proposal plans to give Uniswap the opportunity to test the parameters of selected liquidity pools, including 0.05% DAI-ETH, 0.3% ETH-USDT and 1% USDC-ETH. Uniswap Treasury will charge a 10% fee for these 3 liquidity pools.
As per previous news, the PoolTogether co-founder initiated a proposal to discuss Uniswap fee conversion, including whether to enable Uniswap fee conversion and how fees should be used.
The proposal suggests that if you want to flip the fee switch, start with the two largest pools (ETH/USDC and USDC/USDT). If the transaction execution does not decrease when the “fee switch” is turned on, the test is successful. The proposal is currently being voted on through a temperature check and a consensus test.
In the case of success, at current values, the entire protocol will bring in nearly $15 million annually, i.e., at current valuations, 314 times more profitable. In addition, the profit from the fee conversion sends funds to the protocol, even though no staking mechanism is implemented.
However, industry experts do not see the $15 million added annually to have a significant impact on the development of the industry-leading on-chain swap protocol. Even a $15 million direct team incentive won’t change TVL in the largest pools.
