Proposal to add DYDX

Proposal to add DYDX

Proposal to add DYDX as a capped collateral to Interest Protocol.


The DYDX token is the governance token to the dYdX Exchange. The DYDX token’s governance system is compatible with Interest Protocol’s governance system. Users that post DYDX as collateral can maintain their voting power by delegating the voting power to another address.

The proposed parameters and cap are purposely very conservative. After the initial listing, a subsequent proposal could increase the cap.
