I propose to formalize a rule whereby BAL rewards purchasing, which supports the long term price of XTK, may be - in the discretion of the team - paused by one week whenever at the regular time of purchasing the price of XTK has pumped by at least 200% compared to the price one week prior. This rule could be repeated without limit, e.g. 4 consecutive weeks of pause if each week the price pumps by at least 200% vs. the prior week.
This will give the team flexibility to ensure that purchasing efforts avoid periods of extreme price volatility in a direction that will support XTK in a common sense way that is consistent with long term XTK holders.
Most of the controversy around such a pause seems to be from the decision being made on an ad hoc basis. This proposal seeks to formalize the discretion exercised by the team for the benefit of long term XTK holders.
