Osmosis in Graphs: The value of an Osmo
Everyday, millions of dollars are traded in and out of Osmosis pools. From users compounding their LP rewards to traders exchanging tokens, every transaction slowly yet surely increases the TVL of Osmosis. When the TVL of Osmosis increases, the price of an Osmo tends to follow. In this post, we're going to take a deep dive into the pricing of an Osmo.
Osmosis in Graphs: Validator Parity
There is definitely a non-normal spread of voting power among validators. That's not necessarily a bad thing. This is not a critique of anyones staking selection or of any validators in general! Currently, there's no incentive to stake w/ a smaller validator aside from your own desire to decentralize voting power and support the individal validators efforts.
Impermanent Loss & You
Recently, the Osmosis Governance approved another set of external incentive matching for the BTSG pools. I wanted to analyze at how these pools perform if you ignore incentives. Simply Swap Fees Accrued vs Impermanent Loss. When you put tokens in a pool, you're now investing in the GAMM itself. When people use the pool, the swap fees go to the GAMM holders, which increase the tokens represented by the GAMMs.
