veTHE Specifications

  • ve(3,3) Mechanics: The Olympus DAO anti-dilution method, commonly known as the rebase mechanism, is combined with Curve's vote-escrowed model in the Solidly-initiated ve(3,3) Mechanics concept. To safeguard veTHE holders from dilution and to enable a dynamic distribution of veTHE among participants over time, the anti-dilution level has been capped at 30%.

  • Gauge: A pool with dynamic $THE rewards based on veTHE weekly voting allocation. No negative voting.

  • Bribes: Custom amount of tokens paid by a third party on a gauge to veTHE holders in exchange for their votes.

  • Max Lock: 2 years.

  • Farming Boost: This feature has not been included to prevent from the emergence of any profit maxi protocols on top of THENA. Conversely, a dynamic and decentralized governance over $THE emissions is fostered over time.

  • Flexibility: veTHE positions can be merged, split, and sold on the secondary market.


For voting, you need to be aware of epochs. Each epoch lasts for 7 days, after which the bribes and trading fees are distributed. You earn only from the gauges (pools) you have voted for.

  • You have to vote weekly in order to be eligible for the fees and bribes, unless you use an optimizer

  • You can pre-approve your vote for a number of weeks in advance (coming soon)

  • You can change or reset your vote at any time

  • Vote weights reset each Epoch. You need to vote every Epoch in order to earn the bribes and trading fees.
