Rise and Shine Maestros,

Welcome to another beautiful week at BEETS. Funkadelically FRESH and always insightful, let’s dive into the weekly Concerto Programme.

Protocol Sweep

Maestros, I present to you, the protocol revenue results for the month of February:

At the time of collection, fees totalled $34.5k

🔵 $6.8k (19.7%) of the fees were generated on Fantom

🔴 $27.0k (78.2%) were generated on Optimism

⚫️ $0.7k (2.1%) were generated from sFTMx (The fees from sFTMx were only partial in multiple ways and thus not representative of future values)

Compared to January results:

⬆️ Fantom fees increased by 61.3%
⬇️ Optimism fees decreased by 21.1%

Collected fees were deployed in the following way:

Held on Optimism

  • $21.3k was used to buy OP to be paired with our Optimism grant and used as incentives
  • $1.8k was used to buy OP to use as Roast Beets incentives under BIP-52


  • $3.0k was converted to 4471 Fantom Menace BPTs
  • $2.5k was saved as USDC on Optimism treasury
  • $1.5k will be used to acquire vlAura

maBEETS voting incentives

  • $4.5k was used to obtain 6659 Fantom Menace BPTs to be used as Fantom gauge vote bounties in March.


It’s time to have your say — Two new proposals have entered the discussion period!

First up, we’ve got a big one! This proposal looks to set the sFTMx protocol revenue distribution. At Beethoven X, our governance holders come first and this time is no different, with a split of 50% to maBEETS holders via bounties, 40% to the Beethoven X DAO Treasury, and 10% to Stader Labs as part of the takeover agreement.

The second proposal looks to commission a custom maBEETS integration into Paintswap’s fNFT marketplace allowing relics to be freely traded. The integration comes with a stacked feature set with all the details you could ask for displayed right on the UI.

For all the juicy details and to join the discussion hop into our Discord!

Gauge vote

The weeks are just flying by and the next round of the Beethoven Gauge Vote is just on the horizon.

Don’t miss the opportunity to have your say in BEETS emissions during the period of the 20th of March to the 2nd of April.

50% of the BEETS farm emissions are decided by the maBEETS gauge and the next round will start this Thursday!

Social Science Lab

Coming in hot, we’ve got a special broadcast from DeFi’s favourite social science lab.
