What is our stance on Voting Markets?

At StableLab, we believe that voting markets present a unique opportunity to create utility for governance token holders by creating a liquid market where governance power can be lent and borrowed.

From a purely economic incentive-based perspective, we see massive opportunities for growth in governance participation throughout the DeFi Ecosystem. For more insight into how we think about voting markets, we dive deeper into our understanding of voting markets in this piece while using Paladin as a case study.


StableLab is a governance firm focused on professional delegation, DAO framework design and product development. We work with various projects, from the ones just starting their journey to decentralization to the most prominent DeFi protocols.

Our systematic framework for DAOs covers governance methodologies, decentralized workforce, implementation, documentation, communication and community engagement. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but we provide a framework of principles and tools we have developed throughout our experience.

We scale DAOs sustainably.


We are the leading professional delegate team with a track record across major DeFi protocols, including MakerDAO, Optimism, Aave, 1inch, Balancer, Element, InstaDapp, Hop and more.

We pioneer delegation work through high governance standards, extensive research, hands-on expertise and the consistent use of a code of conduct. Pushing forward web3 and DeFi since 2018, StableLab’s co-founders previously spent 3.5 years at the Maker Foundation.

PGP-23: Treasury Management #2

Vote: Yes

Rationale: This proposal is an excellent effort in Treasury management strategy. We are glad to see the strategic assets Paladin holds and how these assets work effectively for the protocol.

PGP-24: Governance Framework Update

Vote: Yes

PGM-25: Treasury Management #3.1

Vote: CRV to Yearn & swap sdCRV to CVX

Rationale: We believe that allocating the DAOs CRV to Yearn and dollar cost averaging into CVX over a month would be an optimal use of the DAOs assets; this way, the DAO can take advantage of Yearn’s rewards and the boosted voting power.
With voting power being an essential resource for Paladin, this strategy would be an effective path toward the DAOs goals.

PGM-27: Treasury Management #3.2

Vote: 1. Sell 50% AuraBAL 2. DCA Swap for BAL & Tetu

Rationale: Starting a farming strategy on Tetu is currently the most optimal approach to gathering voting power and yield for Paladin, we support this proposal because of its approach to maximizing the available treasury assets to support the value that Paladin delivers to its users.

Vote: Yes

Rationale: With a 2% cap, we are happy to support this gauge, and it is exciting to see a NFT collection.

PGM-31 : Allocation of resources in Warlord

Vote: Add all CVX & AURA into Warlord

Rationale: We voted in favour of depositing Paladin’s CVX & AURA into Warlord, in addition to reducing the current operational overhead, we agree with the author that by depositing CVX & AURA, we are signalling that with the Protocols skin in the game, Paladin would inspire confidence and motivate users and possibly protocols to use Warlord.

PGM-32 Treasury Management #6

Vote: Yes

Rationale: We support this proposal because we believe this strategy will create financial value for Paladin while deepening the DAO’s ties with Olympus; currently, I do not see a downside to pursuing this strategy. Taking advantage of these incentive schemes has proven to be an important part of Paladin’s growth.
