ARC-33 Dual Incentive Proposal : TPT<>LUNA


Add dual incentives to the TPT<>LUNA pool on Astroport ($TPT & $ASTRO token emissions). The purpose of this proposal is to receive feedback from the community about this idea and gather thoughts regarding the rewards before raising a poll.


Terra Poker (TP) is the first P2E Texas Hold’em game on the Terra network. With a vibrant community and a user-focused interactive game experience, Terra Poker has reached popularity and recognition by the Terra Community.

It has been one of the most liquid/active tokens on the Astroport DEX, generating large fees for the DEX and the Terra Ecosystem. The TPT token is the primary token of the TP game, but also one that is a true utility token. The value accrual of the TPT is inherent in the team’s planned roadmap as more users play, new events are held, and tournament style games are generated.

According to analytics on, fees generated on Astroport by TPT’s liquid volume averaged over 5% over the past 7 days, only 2 weeks after launch. Furthermore, it is the largest pool in Astroport only after the LUNA/USDC, ASTRO and LunaX/LUNA pairs, and remains among the top 5 ranks in traded volume, as seen on both Astroport and Coinhall’s dashboard.

As Terra Poker continues the momentum, we believe that the Astro Community and the Terra Ecosystem will continue to benefit from the liquid

To reduce price impact and volatility for $TPT and ensure that there is maximum continuity in its utility, Terra Poker will provide a total of 150,000,000 $TPT over 10 years distributed according to the schedule below:

Genesis y1 y2 y3 y4 y5 y6 y7 y8 y9 y10
0 6 3 2 1 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5

As such, the first year of expected LP incentives is 60,000,000 TPT.


In order to grow the TPT<>LUNA pool and protect the TP funds, we propose a dual incentive campaign involving both $TPT and $ASTRO tokens.

We propose that the Astral Assembly provides rewards equivalent to 8,220 ASTRO tokens per day (3,000,000 ASTRO per year), especially in light of the LP size and consistent trading volume.

Estimated dual rewards APR for the first year is shown below for various levels of liquidity.

Liquidity in TPT-LUNA Pool TPT Rewards APR ASTRO Rewards APR Total APR
$1,000,000 456.00% 30.00% 486.00%
$2,000,000 228.00% 15.00% 243.00%
$5,000,000 91.20% 6.00% 97.20%
$10,000,000 45.60% 3.00% 48.60%
$20,000,000 22.80% 1.50% 24.30%

(estimated APR values assume that $TPT = $0.076 and $ASTRO = $0.1)


I agree with double incentives in the TPT-LUNA pool as stated above it is one of the most liquid pool and people will need to buy TPT to play(and other things) and exchange their winnings generating even more fees for the astro stakers.

I’m a astro staker

Yep, thanks for that @krawa . To further the evidence, a quick cursory view of the fees and generated indicates that TPT is providing substantial fee generation:

Sum of 7D Turnover: ~187,553.60
Sum of 7D Fees : ~ 562.66
Proposed daily ASTRO$: 1052.16
Fee/ASTRO$ : 0.08

We assume that this is not too far from the ASTRO-axlUSDC pair (potentially more) and the LUNA-axlUSDC pair as well. We believe that the 3mln is a reasonable ask.

Voted yes on this:
*dual incentives so it’s at least justifiable
*seems it has support from the community, a bunch of independent addresses voting yes

*TPT doesn’t seem like it has thriving user base currently, unless I’m missing something–I looked at the site and there were no live games
*couldn’t find info about TPT tokenomics, founder team lockup, etc. so not sure if volume will be organic and sustainable

Think the result of this proposal highlights the problems with current Astroport governance. Individual pool incentive proposals lead to a lot of bureaucracy and voter fatigue in terms of figuring out whether a given pool makes sense to incentivise.

vxASTRO was meant to solve this, but I don’t think it makes sense to launch that in this market. In the interim, Delphi Labs contributors will be working on a more objective framework to inform how incentives could be distributed between pools. The primary determinant should be fees generated for ASTRO stakers However, it should also account for stuff like security of the SCs (can they rug?), vesting schedules (is the community subsidising exit liquidity?), whether the project is providing double incentives, etc

The Osmosis community has done some great work on this which could act as inspiration. They also have a repo with scripts that automate this process and automatically posts the proposal up to governance vote.

Crucially, any such framework is both non-binding and non-prescriptive Ultimately, all decisions rest with ASTRO stakers and this framework simply aims to act as a way to guide/inform these decisions. We’ll be posting up v1 of this framework this week. Look forward to improving and iterating on this based on the community’s feedback

+100 I’d love to see an Osmosis-like tool for ASTRO stakers. Would help a ton with benchmarking, fairness and efficiency.
