Also as recently reported, According to the latest research, one of the biggest Defi protocols of the industry is facing an incentive crisis because the Ethereum researcher Alex Kroeger found that most of the Compound liquidity miners have almost no economic interest in the protocol and do not take part in the protocol’s governance. The report analyzed the top 100 accounts by accrued COMP from the liquidity mining in order to demonstrate the liquidity mining on Compound that needs serious fixing.
The Compound analysis and Kroeger also analyzed the top 100 accounts by accrued COMP from the mining and found that they accrued a total of 808,925 COMP tokens which is equivalent to $270 million which represents 69% of the COMP mined and they are the majority of the token holders. When it comes to taking part in the protocol’s governance, the numbers paint a bleak picture as out of the 100 addresses, one ever voted on a proposal.
