Following this previous RFC discussion, it has been decided that we should reward WETH instead of sCRV for Pickle stakers. Here is a summary:
- sCRV is not user-friendly and requires a lot of gas to extract the underlying stablecoins.
- WETH can be easily unwrapped into ETH, which is the natural currency of the Ethereum ecosystem.
- WETH can be directly used to trade for most tokens on Uniswap and other exchanges.
- Pickle was not chosen due to issues with how it looks and also potential technical risks.
