DIP-3: Trading Fees Reallocation and Community Treasury


DIP-3 is proposing to reallocate a percentage of future trading fees from liquidity pools on DODO. The fees collected will be utilized for two purposes: to buy back DODO tokens from the DODO-USDT liquidity pool on DODO and redistribute them to all vDODO holders, and to establish a multi-purpose community treasury.


In DODO’s V2 Tokenomics, trading fee reallocation is one of the most critical token models. As DODO’s multichain deployment progresses and the DODO platform’s user base increases rapidly, the platform’s trading volume has been growing exponentially.

While the user base and the total trading volume of the DODO platform continue to increase, it is necessary to tie platform growth together with token value capture. Reallocating a percentage of trading fees to buy back DODO tokens and then redistribute them to vDODO holders, and establish a community treasury are remarkably beneficial to DODO’s token holders and the DODO platform’s growth in the long run.


There are three types of liquidity pools available on DODO DEX: DODO Classic Pool, DODO Vending Machine, and DODO Private Pool.

Although each liquidity pool’s trading fees on DODO are set and configured by its creator and may vary from one another, the default trading fee for a pair on DODO is 0.3%, with the exception of DODO Classic Pool’s single-sided liquidity pools, which have a default trading fee of 0.01%.

DIP-3 proposes that 80% of future trading fees on DODO will be distributed to liquidity providers (LPs), and 15% will be used for the buyback of DODO tokens (to then be distributed to vDODO holders as vDODO), and the remaining 5% will be used to fund a community treasury.

For example, assuming a liquidity pool has a trading fee of 0.3%. If DIP-3 is to be implemented, 0.24% of the total trading volume in the pool will be distributed to LPs as rewards, and 0.045% of the total trading volume will be used to buy back DODO Tokens (to then be distributed to vDODO holders as vDODO), and 0.015% of the total trading volume will be used to fund the community treasury.

Available Options

Approve: agree with the proposal of trading fees reallocation (80% to LPs, 15% for DODO tokens buyback, and 5% for the community treasury)

Reject: disagree with the proposal. LPs should continue to receive 100% of trading fees accrued from liquidity pools on DODO

This concludes DIP-3. Suggestions and comments from community members are always welcome and encouraged. A governance vote on the proposal with the aforementioned options will be created on Snapshot.

in my opinion the allocation of 15% to vDodo holders can be based on the rank of the holders. I need to have 1 required amount of vdodo in order to get the reward. each vdodo holding level will have corresponding rewards and benefits

Tiers already happen with the airdrops from various projects. My opinion is that it is enough with these trading fees to allocate per the amount of vDodo held, no additional tiering with this vDodo benefit. You don’t want to disincentivize smaller vDodo holders from coming in to the project. That would be counter-productive.

A contrarian viewpoint maybe that it would act as an incentive to all holders, large and small to increase their holdings and thus proportion of the trading fees, with an obvious impact on token price. I suspect there will be people in both camps if I’m honest but they current APY and additional reallocation of trading fees are quite the inducement to holders at all levels
