SIP-X: Minichef rate management prior to retirement


Gradually set Minichef rewards to ‘0’


The new crosschain gauge infrastructure is slated to make the current Minichef system obsolete. When preparing for a major operational overhaul like this; gradual retirement with ample opportunity for any involved parties to make adjustments is often the route of least friction.


This SIP seeks to outline the procedure by which the rates of existing Minichef contracts on Arbitrum and Optimism will be modified in preparation for their retirement following the release of crosschain gauges.
