BIP 89: BadgerDAO Treasury Management Policy

BIP 89: CVX Treasury Policy Amendment

Scope: Append BIP89-BadgerDAO Treasury General Policy to allow the DAO to hold up to 25% [+10% quarterly wiggle room] of non-native treasury assets as CVX or derivatives of (e.g. bveCVX).


The BadgerDAO General Treasury Policy limits non-native assets aside from BTC, stables and ETH to 5% of the total assets in the treasury to limit the total risk the Treasury Council can manage without explicit approval from governance. This amendment to the General Treasury Policy will allow a CVX position (or derivatives thereof) to make up to 25% of the total non-native assets in the DAO’s treasury. This amount can exceed 25% (up to 35% within a single quarter). This will allow time for the treasury team to execute orders during high price volatility. This will not supersede holding 1 year of stable runway and 1 year of ETH runway which will continue to take priority.

Current State:

  • BIP 89 requires the Treasury Council to divest CVX if the position is greater than 5% of the DAO’s non-native assets.
  • CVX currently represents ~17% of non-native assets

Proposed State:

  • Allow the BadgerDAO Treasury to hold upto 25% (up to 35% within a single quarter) of its non-native assets as CVX or derivatives thereof (e.g. bveCVX)


  • CVX is a fundamental component of the BadgerDAO boost ecosystem

  • Treasury CVX can be used to support Badger/WBTC liquidity on curveV2

  • ~80k CVX is worth 9.5% APR to 10m in deposits in Badger/WBTC pool, at ~17% non-native holdings the DAO currently holds ~125k CVX.

  • 2 standard deviations based on 100 day CVX price would represent a 50% draw down. This would mean at 25% the DAO’s treasury non-native VAR(100) from this position is 12.5%.
