A proposal to reduce Cardano’s treasury tax from 20% to 5% has been made, aiming to increase the number of stake pool operators (SPOs) and potentially impact ADA prices.
- A proposal aims to reduce the Cardano treasury tax from 20% to 5%, potentially impacting the ecosystem’s funding.
- The proposal must undergo community voting, with the current effective treasury tax at nearly 33%.
- Approximately 30 million ADA is added to the treasury each month, totaling around 1.39 billion ADA as of November 7.
- The proposal must undergo a community vote before implementation, as the current effective treasury tax stands at a substantial 33%.
A proposal is circulating to cut the Cardano treasury tax from 20% to 5%, raising questions about its implications for the ecosystem’s development and funding.
Cardano’s Treasury Role
The Cardano treasury plays a crucial role in financing ecosystem development and supporting community-led projects via initiatives like Project Catalyst, managed by the non-profit Cardano Foundation.
The PCP to reduce the treasury tax was presented by Earn Coin Pool, a stake pool operator (SPO) on Cardano. It seeks to adjust the treasury tax rate and understand factors related to the “tau” parameter and its change frequency.
A lower treasury tax could encourage more Stake Pool Operators (SPOs) to participate in Cardano’s proof-of-stake blockchain network, potentially affecting the network’s security and decentralization.
Cardano’s SPO Ecosystem
Cardano relies on SPOs to validate transactions and secure the blockchain. These entities earn ADA through fixed and variable fees based on their contribution.
Presently, 20% of transaction fees go into the Cardano treasury, while the remaining 80% is distributed among SPOs who validate transactions in a given epoch.
The proposal to reduce the Cardano treasury tax rate has sparked discussions within the community about its potential impacts. If approved, it could attract more SPOs, enhancing network security.
However, it also raises questions about the ecosystem’s funding sources. ADA’s price may react to the outcome of the community vote, as it will influence the network’s dynamics and the participation of stakeholders.
As the Cardano community engages in this decision-making process, all eyes will be on the implications for the blockchain’s future and ADA’s market performance.
