[ARFC] Increase MaticX supply cap

title:[ARFC] Increase MaticX supply cap

This proposal seeks to increase the supply cap for the MaticX token from 50.60M units to 62M units as:

  • Supply cap utilization reached 88%
  • The MaticX supply increased since the last AIP on the subject
  • LSD yields leveraging is one of the main sources of revenue for the DAO
  • An incentive program is currently taking place regarding the above strategy

If this proposal gets the green light from at least one service provider it will continue following the Direct-to-AIP framework.


The supply caps utilization climbed to 88% recently only a few days after the last increase. Historically supply caps for LSD tokens have quickly been filled up, leading to the implementation of the direct-to-AIP framework, but still, proactivity from the DAO is needed for the smooth experience of the users. Since the total supply of MaticX also increased since AIP-278, it is possible to increase the supply cap up to 62M while remaining below 75% of the total supply.

Currently, the DAO reserve is increasing by ~870 Matic a day thanks to users borrowing Matic, a sizable portion of them are doing so with MaticX token, increasing the MaticX cap would increase the demand for this asset and potentially attract more liquidity for it.

Last but not least, an incentive program by the Polygon Foundation is currently running its course on Polygon V3 market, promoting the use of LSD yield leveraging with, among other, the MaticX tokens. Thus, this increase would also enhance the synergy with the rest of the ecosystem that is being built around this farming strategy.


The following parameters would be modified for the MaticX token on the polygon V3 market:

Parameters Current Proposed Increase
Supply Cap 50.60M 62M ~22.5%

This would be a bit less than 75% of the current total supply (83.31M)


This proposal is powered by Skyward.
The author doesn’t possess MaticX tokens at the time of writing and isn’t paid by the Polygon Foundation for this ARFC.

Next step:

This proposal is compatible with the Direct-to-AIP framework, meaning the next steps are:

  1. Get approval from at least one risk provider
  2. Publish an AIP

Utilizing our LSD supply cap methodology, and given the Community Preference for Supply Cap Limits for LSTs, we support the proposed increase to the MaticX supply cap.

Asset Overview

The current Supply Cap for MaticX on Polygon V3 is 50.6M WMATIC.



Current total circulating supply is ~83M, in a previous vote the Aave DAO has agreed to a supply cap of 75% of total circulating supply:


Following the above community vote, we support the new proposed supply cap of 62M for MaticX (83M * 0.75 = 62.25M).


Our LST methodology does not support increases in supply cap beyond 50% circulating supply until the killswitch is implemented. In the meantime, if the community would like to raise the MaticX supply cap, it should go through AIP rather than risk steward.
