Gauge Weights

What are gauge weights?

Simply put, a gauge weight translates into how much of the daily $LT inflation it receives.

Each gauge has a weight depends on votings. Those weights represent how much of the daily $LT inflation will be received by the liquidity gauge.

For example, on the below chart, the weight of the $stHOPE gauge is currently around 70%. This means that all liquidity providers in the $stHOPE gauge share 70% of the daily $LT.

You can find each liquidity gauge relative weight on this page:

Why are gauge weights so important?

Because those weights decide where the $LT inflation goes, it allows the LightDAO to control where most of the liquidity should go and balance liquidity. It's a powerful tool for voters that must be used responsibly.

The gauge weight is updated once a week on Thursday.

Who can vote for gauge weights?

Anybody who has locked $LT can vote to direct its voting power towards one or multiple gauges.
