Centrifuge Governance Call #22 on November 15 :classical_building:


  • Let’s start as usual with the Governance update October for an overview, provided by the GCG. The most important proposal which passed is the update of the Transaction fees for Pools which is a milestone for the self-sustainability of the protocol and it further extends the token utility!
  • The Centrifuge governance call #21 covered the remaining topics from last month with the Introduction of Harvey aka. Yieldkollektor as the new facilitator for the Centrifuge Credit Group, a deepdive into the Token Revenue Model and an Update on the Transaction fees for Pools (see above).
  • After giving a brief intro to their liquidity platform in September, Arf Financial submitted a POP for their Arf Variable Interest Notes to be onboarded as a Pool on Centrifuge chain! The submission is open for comments until it moves to the next phase of the POP-process.

:exclamation::exclamation:A reminder: Please actively participate in the governance process, leave your comments and remarks in the RFCs and vote on open proposals​:exclamation::exclamation: :ballot_box::writing_hand:

Protocol :cyclone:

The Protocol is represented primarily by organizations that are actively using Centrifuge’s technology to facilitate the underwriting, structuring, and financing of RWAs.

Product & Engineering

  • A new Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP-7540), co-authored by CTO Jeroen and Alina, raised some excitement in the community: the proposal aims to extend the existing ERC-4626 standard for tokenized vaults.:clap:
  • Code4Arena conducted a Smart contract audit and analysis for Centrifuge last month and the Findings & Analysis Report was published recently.:lady_beetle:
  • As part of our security efforts leading up to launch, Cantina.xyz has completed and published their final audit of Liquidity Pools.
  • Pool updates: ConsolFreight gave a Legal proceedings update as a consequence on their CF4-pool and although not an issuer (yet), another update & thoughts on the Housing market given by Will from UrbanGate for October 2023.

Stay tuned for the next monthly update with definitely more news, governance updates and developments from the ecosystem!

I sincerely hope you can keep us updated on the problematic pools, like 1754, in the monthly reports. This way, we, the investors, can stay informed about the progress. We’re completely in the dark about what’s actually happening, and it’s quite frustrating.


Incredible roundup (yet again), Christian! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I just read through it now, but I know I’ll be circling back tomorrow morning when I have more time to start clicking links and really digging in :star_struck:

Thanks for all that you do and have a wonderful weekend, @Tjure07 :man_bowing:

Fully agree! Indeed, it is very frustrating to see how the team plays down the issue and remains silent about 1754 etc. It is pointless to talk about volume of RWAs if pools are in default and loans are not being repaid. How can the team be trusted if it doesn’t care about their supporters and OG investors when they are in trouble?!

Indeed, I’ve tried various ways to contact the relevant people, but haven’t received any response in half a year. I know it might sound foolish now, but I essentially put almost all of my savings from two years ago into the branch series 3. Last year, I was even glad because I kept my funds in Centrifuge, avoiding the storm of FTX. But now, it seems I’ve just fallen into a worse quagmire than FTX. Although things look bleak, I still maintain a glimmer of hope.

Sorry to hear that, mate…Hope things will change for you soon.

If only some communication channel from team would be opened, but unfortunately the communication about this serious issue is literally nonexistent.
