Whitelist Pickle for locking up CRV for boosted rewards and voting.
Pickle’s Curve Strategy for their vaults have been audited by MixBytes. The Curve team has taken a preliminary look at this audit report and the Pickle Curve Strategy smart contract and deemed it ready for whitelisting to be voted on.
The Pickle protocol already facilitates the staking of tens of millions of dollars worth of tokens supplied to the Curve Finance protocol. The CRV rewards currently earned by these gauge deposits are at a minimum and none of it is being locked.
The Pickle CRV Locker smart contract, deployed here, is to be whitelisted so that Curve LPs using Pickle will be able to lock up additional CRV for boosted returns and voting.
By approving whitelisting, the Pickle protocol can lock up a portion of the rewarded CRV to participate more in governance. Curve LPs using Pickle will also get boosted CRV returns.
By approving whitelisting, the Pickle protocol can get boosted returns on CRV and this will give more CRV to Curve LPs who are going through Pickle. Some may not want additional CRV to be exposed to this externality.
