Some of our community members raised concerns about the possibility that there might be constant dumping of FNX on the market by involving more assets to mine $FNX? I will share some of the thoughts from the team in this thread.
1\ We are building FinNexus as a lasting project in the long run, not just a mining game or a Ponzi. FinNexus will last and succeed because of the massive usage of the options model, not due to the mining mechanism or Pump&Dump of FNX price.
2\ If only FNX is the only asset in the pool, yes, it could be positive for FNX pumping in the short term and of course the team would also be happy. But, more importantly, we want FinNexus to grow big, and to be successful in the long run.
3\ $FNX has only a 4 million circulating supply now, even if all are in the liquidity pool, the options to be written is just too little to make an impact on the market.
4\ Short term and long term goals must be balanced. For FinNexus to have more value locked-up in the protocol, the inclusion of other 'big' assets is a must, for the future of @fin_nexus.
5\ $ETH and $USDC are the most commonly used native and stable crypto-assets on Ethereum. By including these coins, the risks of the pool can be much diversified.
6\ But if only $FNX is included, the pool size can be vulnerable to $FNX price fluctuation, hence providing a less-stable backing for the options. The addition of these two assets greatly lowers the risk profile of the liquidity pool compared to a pool composed solely of $FNX .
7\ The inclusion of $ETH and $USDC can be friendly to the option buyers. In the earlier design that only $FNX is allowed in the pool. When buying, selling back, or exercising options, $FNX is the only currency that is used.
8\ For those who don't have $FNX or don't want to have risk exposure of $FNX, he/she may be reluctant to participate in this model, which can much negatively affect the width of usages of the protocol, especially in the early stages.
9\ By adding more assets, more flexibility is provided to the users. Nowadays, users and TVL are the key for valuation for one project, right? and $FNX can be benefited from it.
10\ FNX also has a governance nature, like $YFI, $Comp, etc. FinNexus will be governed and upgraded by the sole decree of the FNX token holders.
11\ To make voting right more valuable and build communities in a much wider scope, the participation of massively accepted assets will be beneficial for the token holders in the long run.
12\ Also, we may include more assets in the future, to make the pool more diversified, and of course, under the governance of the $FNX holders. The voting mechanism is under construction now.
Hopefully, this thread will give our community members a clearer answer to why we include $ETH and $USDC in FPO v1.0.
