My gut feeling agrees with you.
But my apprehension tells me that having an equal compensation for both sides is better because it will make the market situation more clear.
With equal compensation of buy and sell side Nu will know when to increase or decrease NBT supply:
- if the sell side is lower than the buy side, additional NBT are needed on the market.
- if the sell side is higher than the buy side, NBT need to be removed from the market.
If you compensate buy and sell side differently it will be harder to know when and how to react.
You need a coefficient instead of only a threshold.
Equal compensation of buy and sell side allow Nu to know which side to seed - once seeded auctions are available again.
Nu needs to connect the liquidity “in the wild” with an ongoing adjustment of the NBT supply.
Unequal compensation rates make that more complicated and are only good for short-term reduction of costs.
I’d say Nu shouldn’t afford saving these few costs now.
Be glad that fixed cost pools very easily can adjust the sizes of buy and sell sides by increasing or decreasing the payout (assuming that the compensation rates, which LPs demand, stay the same).
The same recommendation I already wrote in @Cybnate’s reply:
Please have a look here: [Passed] Motion to regulate rules of fund management in NuLagoon before you consider voting for this motion.
Both you and @Cybnate have great power: you offer data feeds.
With great power comes great responsibility
