Proposal Calls to Extend Liquidity Mining Incentives

As Canto’s seventh month of liquidity mining incentives nears its completion, early contributors will propose to governance an extension of the program with identical parameters, so as to maintain the network’s current capital efficiency and stakeholder alignment.

The Community Pool Spend proposal to top up liquidity mining rewards will be submitted to governance at 11 AM Eastern Time on Thursday March 16th. A separate proposal to fund The Canto Online Hackathon’s Season 5 winners will also be submitted at this time.

By default, the liquidity mining program’s existing parameters will remain unchanged. Network security emissions will also continue to be distributed at their current levels without the need for a governance proposal.


Canto’s latest security and liquidity mining incentives have proven effective, with TVL reaching an all-time high before the onset of recent market turbulence. By maintaining parameters at their current levels, governance will provide stability for Canto stakers and liquidity providers, while still ensuring deep liquidity for Canto DEX users.

Network Inflation

Network security emissions will remain unchanged compared to the previous period, with an inflation rate of 5.6 CANTO per block, minting ~2.45m new CANTO tokens in the upcoming 30-day period.

Currently 56% of the available Canto supply is staked for network security.

Liquidity Mining Program

Liquidity mining parameters will also remain unchanged compared to the previous period, with a total of 37.6 CANTO per block minting ~16.5m new CANTO tokens to LP token holders in the upcoming 30-day period.

The allocation of liquidity mining rewards amongst DEX and lending market pools remains the same:

  • CANTO/NOTE: 17.9 CANTO per block

  • ETH/CANTO: 7.8 CANTO per block

  • ATOM/CANTO: 7.8 CANTO per block

  • NOTE/USDC: 1.7 CANTO per block

  • NOTE/USDT: 1.7 CANTO per block

  • cUSDC: 0.3 CANTO per block

  • cUSDT: 0.3 CANTO per block

The program will begin immediately when the proposal is executed on-chain.
