The ongoing proposal to reward current “stuck” capital is a great way to prevent a bank run and reward long-term supporters.
But it does nothing to attract new capital. Besides the ongoing asset management topic I think we could use the long-term thinkers vault to attract new capital like this:
Bonus criteria : When the buffer is below 5%
Bonus amount : Bonus for 1 day is equal to 1/100 of the holdings of the long-term thinkers vault. That means the bonus can never fully deplete.
Bonus qualification criteria : You supplied new capital during an epoch where the Bonus criteria was met for at least one day and supplied capital throughout the next epoch.
Bonus vesting : Earned in the next epoch and vests over the epoch following.
Here is an example:
Epoch 8 has 3 days where the buffer is below 5%
Capital supplier joins during epoch 8 with X amount of ETH
In Epoch 9 the capital supplier will receive their share (X/total amount of ETH joined in epoch 8) of 3/100 of the long-term thinkers vault.
The bonus is fully vested by epoch 10.
This is particularly nice because the math is rather simple and it can be transparently communicated:
USF buffer below 5% - join now to receive a USF bonus!
Also the rewards will be rather high in the beginning and will hopefully build a strong enough incentive to attract new long-term capital.
