According to a report, Polkadot’s treasury has assets worth slightly under $245 million, which could last for about two years at its present rate of expenditure.

Polkadot’s Treasury is becoming more complex and harder to grasp. Polkadot is spending directly as well as allocating value in bounties and collectives to be spent in the future. At the current rate of spending, the Treasury has about two years of runway left, although the volatile nature of crypto-denominated treasuries makes it hard to predict with confidence. This has sparked discussions ranging from a stricter budgeting approach to a change in the inflation parameters of the system.

Ecosystem Concerned about how Treasury is Used

The first part of the year saw “a huge jump in spending” for Polkadot. It spent a total of $87 million, of which over 40% ($36.7 million) went to influencers, conferences, and events in addition to advertising. However, Enenkel claimed that overall, it received “more bang for the DOT” as the token’s price reached its greatest point since May 2022 in mid-March, a 2024 peak of $11.46. According to CoinGecko, DOT has since dropped to $6.33 but is still up about 9.78% for the week.

According to Enenkel, the ecosystem is becoming more concerned about how the Treasury is being used because its balances have been declining since the middle of last year. A decrease in network fees was the reason for the 58.5% loss in treasury revenue from the second half of 2023, which went from 414,291 DOT to 171,696 DOT.
