The Balancer boosted Pool

Balancer Boosted Pool is a feature of the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocol – Balancer. The Balancer Boosted Pool allows liquidity providers (LPs) to deposit two types of assets in a pool – The base asset and the boost asset. The base asset typically has lower volatility while the boost asset has higher volatility. The boost asset is used to generate additional returns for liquidity providers.

According to a recent report by Messari, Balancer developed boosted pools to improve LPs’ capital efficiency. Depositors might profit from trading commissions and interest thanks to the pools. LPs receive $0.50, the Decentralised Autonomous Organization (DAO) treasury receives $0.175, and veBAL lockers receive $0.325 for every dollar in fees paid.
