Pathway: a protocol for algorithmic pricing of a DAO governance token

by   Aleksei Pupyshev, et al.

In this paper, we will consider a governance token pricing algorithm that conducts liquidity operations on AMM (CPMM) DEXs (automated market maker decentralized exchanges) with liquidity that belongs to a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), also called protocol-owned liquidity (POL). The primary aim of the protocol is maintaining a price peg by determining algorithmically when and how to carry out interventions that consist of two steps: extracting liquidity from an AMM liquidity pool and conducting "token swap" operations. We will cover setting up an optimal peg function as a weighted sum of certain normalized factors, which are to be determined collectively by the DAO. In particular, we will review various arithmetic invariants of liquidity intervention, which brings the price to a peg while leaving total liquidity intact.
