Launch $stkWALLET to replace $xWALLET

The latest governance proposal from Ambire seeks to replace $xWALLET with $stkWALLET, a new staking token that offers a straightforward and dynamic rebasing model. This change aims to improve user experience and clarity in staking rewards.

Launch $stkWALLET governance vote
The community has to decide whether to replace $xWALLET with $stkWALLET

There’s a new governance vote up as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance user experience and streamline our ecosystem. This latest proposal seeks to introduce a new wrapper token, $stkWALLET, to replace our current staking token, $xWALLET. The objective is to make it easier for users to differentiate between the $WALLET token and its staked version by adopting the widely recognized "stk" prefix and simpler value accrual model than the current $xWALLET token.

Why a new token?

Currently, the way $xWALLET works is that $WALLET holders can stake their tokens on a single staking pool, and in return, they get $xWALLET, which represents their share of this pool. In the beginning, 1 $xWALLET was equal to 1 $WALLET. As the pool started receiving staking rewards, 1 $xWALLET accrued in value, reaching more than 1 $WALLET.

Currently, for example, 1 $xWALLET equals 18,6 $WALLET.

This is confusing; users don’t understand how their staked $WALLET accrues value.

Proposal Overview

We propose introducing a “stk” $WALLET—a much more user-friendly wrapper on top of $xWALLET. When a user stakes $WALLET, the user receives an equivalent amount of dynamically rebasing $stkWALLET in return and starts accruing more rewards in $WALLET.

For example, if you stake 1 $WALLET, you will receive 1$stkWALLET. If annual staking rewards are 20%, you will have 1,2 $stkWALLET in one year.

If the proposal passes, both $stkWALLET and $xWALLET will be valid for governance votes in the future.
