In Q2 Badger continued to focus on building the eBTC protocol and preparing to go to market. The eBTC protocol underwent intense review and auditing to assure a quality product. The Badger Treasury continued to bring positive returns in Q2 as crypto markets experienced volatility related to regulatory uncertainty.
Some highlights of the most important treasury events:
$3.1M decrease in the notional value of treasury holdings due to price depreciation of treasury assets, more than half coming from decrease in Native asset value
Decreased revenue due to falling yields of TCL
Stablecoin inflow continues to extend BadgerDAO runway
All remaining vaults were retired ahead of eBTC launch
More details in the report below.

Revenue has decreased by 36%, due to yields on TCL positions falling
A decrease was observed in vault based revenue (performance fee, withdrawal fee, minting/burning) due to further deprecation of products
Overall costs increased due to an increase in gas cost, consulting and software. Additional consulting costs are mostly temporary development costs for the eBTC frontend.
These effects combined resulted in non-native EBITDA being negative for Q2 (-$158k)
The restitution program continued as agreed upon, in the form of deposits into remBADGER (73k BADGER) and emissions to remBADGER holders (95k BADGER).
