The Treasury working group proposes diversifying an additional $150,000 USDC to ETH. This follows on the diversification round from 3 months ago. link
Converting USDC to ETH
Diversifying Forefront’s treasury remains a top priority in 2022. The first conservative step in this direction was to convert $150,000 (at the time, 8.7% of the USDC in Treasury) into ETH. That proposal was passed 3 months ago (Feb 11).
The Treasury Working Group is now proposing converting an additional $150,000 USDC into ETH.
Forefront measures its operating budget “runway” in terms of Treasury USDC and ETH. This conversion would maintain an 18-month runway (at current expenditure levels) with a runway composition of approximately 5/6th USDC and 1/6th ETH.
Treasury ownership of ETH provides multiple benefits including:
- upside exposure to the larger value creation of Web3.
- the ability to stake ETH and earn yield.
- the ability to borrow against ETH.
In terms of market dynamics, the Treasury working group remains agnostic about future market conditions. We make no effort to predict the future, but rather to strategically diversify our treasury and position the DAO for long-term success.
The price of ETH is volatile. This adds risk, both upside and downside, to our runway. For example, if ETH were to fall about another 50%, it would decrease our operating runway by 1 month.
