Hi Compound Community!

We are excited to begin supporting Compound at our fullest capacity, offering a unique delegate experience for the community and stakeholders. As a full-time delegate we are committed to helping guide the protocol’s decentralization and multi-chain growth.

Specifically, our focus will be on:

  • Supporting the safe deployment of Comet across EVM chains, ensuring target chains are net beneficial to the protocol and token holders.
  • Providing input and recommendations surrounding collateral listings & protocol parameters.
  • Researching and putting forward proposals to address potential areas of improvement such as governance participation, governance processes, growth, grants, etc.
  • Stream important votes and proposals and their impact across our institutional and corporate channels.


Wintermute is a leading crypto-native algorithmic trading firm, specializing in creating efficient markets across centralized and decentralized exchanges. Wintermute was founded in July 2017 by three Optiver veterans. Evgeny Gaevoy, founder and CEO, was previously head of ETFs (screen and OTC) at Optiver Europe, one of the largest ETF market-making desks. Since our inception, we have traded over $2.85T and expanded our presence across 80+ (de)centralized exchanges and various (non)EVM chains, continuously supporting and providing liquidity throughout the ecosystem for our partners and their communities.

Alongside our trading arm is Wintermute Ventures, which enables us to support projects where we know we can be true value-adding, develop a partnership and help influence a positive outcome. Importantly, we do not target large ownership stakes; decentralized ownership is an important prerequisite to transitioning to a robust future.

Why us

We believe that a decentralized world needs robust and progressive governance systems. Our goal is to support DAOs along their journey towards such a state through objective, long-term value-add decision-making.

Alongside active governance participation, Wintermute’s goal is to support Compound’s growth in a sustainable and robust manner, providing research when needed and proactively creating proposals to address areas of improvement (e.g. dYdX LP Reward Restructure). We’ll also happily leverage our internal infrastructure from both our trading and venture arms to support the DAO in areas such as simple treasury maintenance, to bespoke cross-chain liquidity management.

Outside of Compound, we’re contributors to Aave, dYdX, Index Coop, and 1inch. We intend to expand our presence across many more DAOs in the near future.

Our Core Values:

Long-term value creation over short-term opportunism.

For example, we do not support short-term rent-seeking token distribution programs; or the redistribution of tokens that carry no positive second-order effects.

In contrast, we do support and encourage purpose-driven mechanisms that incentivize positive behaviour and are value-maximizing; or that improve alignment between token holders and the protocol.

Transparency, alignment, and proactivity.

We are proactive in providing clear and consistent reasoning behind our decision-making and proposals, ensuring the protocol’s sustainability is at the heart of all governance discussions.

Objective data-driven decision-making.

We use data and research to ensure our final decision is objectively value-accretive for the protocol.

We look forward to actively contributing to Compound alongside fellow delegates and thank all future delegators who choose to support Wintermute and the greater decentralization of Compound!

This seems like a good proposal that could help further decentralization. I’m in support of this.

1. CGP Hackathon Sponsorships in 2023
Vote: For
Summary: Some of the best projects/dapps have come out of hackathons and we believe it’s important to fund innovation within the Compound ecosystem. We believe the $100k funding amount is fair.

2. Initialize cUSDCv3 on Polygon
Vote: For
Summary: We are in support of this proposal and the launch of cUSDCv3 on Polygon! Polygon has a thriving DeFi ecosystem and is a perfect place for Compound’s multi-chain expansion.

3. Compound V2 → V3 Migration Phase 1
Vote: For
Summary: After discussion in the forum, we support the new parameter changes to incentivize migration from v2 → v3. Specifically, utilising only supply caps, price factor, and rewards, and leaving out changes to reserve factors.

Bro, please increase your vote?


Resume cUSDC Minting
Vote: Yes
Summary: Given the reduced uncertainty and subsequent price stabilization for USDC. We believe it is safe to resume cUSDC minting on Compound V2.

Refresh Polygon COMP
Vote: Yes
Summary: Currently, the cUSDCv3 market on Polygon is at the ‘kink’ point, and together with the lack of COMP rewards, this limits the TVL growth.

Initialize cUSDCv3 on Arbitrum
Vote: Yes
Summary: It is necessary to continue expanding into new chains, and Arbitrum has already established itself as a rollup with many innovative DeFi protocols.

Introducing WinterGov - A delegate’s tool for governance.

WinterGov is a Dune dashboard that allows anyone to keep track of live proposals they have not yet voted for. For delegates, it’s a great tool to make sure they’re not missing votes and therefore, maintaining a high participation rate.

Simply enter your address, click run, and the dashboard will load all live proposals that require voting and tell you how much time you have left.

Click on the proposal ID and you’ll be taken to the voting page.

It’ll also show your current delegated voting power on the RHS.

The dashboard also displays your recent voting activity along with their outcomes, and voting turnout.

You can also track your on-chain voting participation rate from the beginning of the DAO and from when you began voting.

The rolling 6-month on-chain participation rate is useful to track your recent performance and identify DAOs where you need to pay more attention to.

Lastly, you can view a list of your delegators and the amount of voting power they have delegated along with your overall distribution of delegated voting power.

WinterGov currently supports Aave, dYdX, Compound, Uniswap, ENS, and Gitcoin!
