Introduce a Gatekeeper System for DIGG

We are all bleeding together. However, there will come a point when the MC of DIGG and the Supply even out, and we will be at equilibrium. However, each time DIGG rises above peg, it is not unfounded that people will try to get their investment out as soon as possible. So, I suggest we take a page out of Tomb.Finance’s algo coin book and introduce a Gatekeeper system while the token is in its infancy.

Essentially, the Gatekeeper would create a tax (used as slippage on uni/sushi/pancake) for any sales of DIGG and bDIGG when close to or under peg. That tax is burned (we can do other things, like return to treasury for KPI options) with the intent of stopping heavy whale sell pressure when at or below peg. Another issue is it is a profitable venture to swing trade the token when it is below peg. A move from 0.64-0.84 presents a 20% gain, but no opportunity for the token to spring back to life. Therefore, here is the tax chart I suggest (lifted from TOMB, docs below):

Please let me know what you think. Something dramatic has to change to stop the bleeding, and I think we should leave no stone unturned in this recovery.

I agree that you’re right… people are going to ape out as soon as they can. I’m not sure that locking things up by charging penalties is the right solution. It doesn’t bode well for any token to penalize its users.

In other words, I believe carrots work better than sticks.

DIGG needs utility.


That is a good point. However, I think a “launch” of sorts would make an experiment like this work. For example, we market hard, use enough money from the treasury to buy bDIGG to get it above peg, and then implement the tax system (all marketed to the community). DIGG could be a money printer for those that don’t sell into the Gatekeeper. Remember, this is just to get the token on its feet. When the supply is large enough that large sells wont destroy DIGG’s peg, then we can remove the Gatekeeper.

Once you put a gatekeeper type of solution in place, removing it is next to impossible. Taxes always go up, they rarely go down.

I disagree with this. We came together last week and lowered the fees on the wBTC vaults, so if the DAO it once, I think we can do it again.
