Gauge Bribes are natively supported by Platypus. Third party protocols can bribe voters using their own governance tokens. Users receive rewards proportional to the number of votes they allocated to the particular asset.
Users can use the front-end or call
Voter.claimBribesto claim bribes. Bribes are automatically claimed when users update their vote allocations.
Users with vePTP balance can farm bribes. It creates additional economic value to vePTP holders, and this includes NFT holders too.
Protocols can leverage bribes to increase emissions to an asset at a lower cost (as compared to directly emitting governance tokens to LPs). It ultimately provides better yields and deeper liquidity to their tokens!
