After an mAsset was whitelisted and created, Mirror users have entered long or short positions based on their objectives. Unless the oracle price become unavailable for the underlying assets, it is a terrible idea to delist the asset or discriminately change or assign its weighting parameter because doing so would like changing the rules according to some preference of certain players during a game, it would results in inconsistent and unpredictable protocol, causing harm to the healthy development and adoption of the Mirror protocol.
For example, poll ID# 169 suggests to “Modify weight for mDOT to 0.01” and provides reason as “Dot can be easily traded on various defi platforms…”. This is weak or misguided argument because the same would apply to mBTC, mETH in the traded list and mSOL, mOHM in the passed list, so why would one just pick on mDOT? How would any new users of the platform would know the mDOT is treated as a lower-class asset.
I just checked Terraswap Dashboard (Terraswap Dashboard), and found out that the trading volume for the mDOT-UST trading pair for the past 24 hours was 306K, ahead of those for the mQQQ-UST, mABNB-UST, mTSLA, mGOOGL, mHOOD…
I would suggest users to think more deeply on this topic and vote “No” to against this proposal.
