🏅 Rating: Overweight
🎯 Price Target: $31-46 (100-200% upside)
We are initiating coverage of BAL, the native token of decentralized exchange Balancer, with a rating of overweight.
We are assigning this rating due to the activation of veBAL. An overhaul of BAL’s tokenomics, the upgrade will entitle holders who lock LP tokens from the 80/20 BAL/ETH pool to 75% of fees generated by the protocol, boosted yields when providing liquidity, 10% of emissions, and the right to vote on BAL rewards directed to different pools on the exchange.
We believe veBAL significantly enhances the utility of the token, with a design that locks up supply while simultaneously using it as liquidity and drives demand through voting rights over emissions. Like tokens with a similar design, such as CRV, we feel that BAL will become a top target among DAOs who wish to lay claim to liquidity on the exchange. We have already seen the first signs of this, with a proposal making its way through Aave governance to acquire 300,000 BAL, worth $4.5 million at current prices.
