Arbitrum price movement
Arbitrum, a blockchain platform that aims to enhance the scalability and efficiency of decentralized applications, has witnessed a surge in its price following the DAO’s decision.
The price of ARB currently stands at $1.13, representing a 3.14% increase over the last 24 hours. This bullish momentum is likely linked to the positive news of the staking proposal’s approval.
The price of Solana has been on a very strong bullish trend since mid-October and the bullish trend is projected to continue as indicated by the MA crossover and the MACD as seen in the above chart.
The cryptocurrency’s market capitalization is now valued at $1,439,342,086, ranking it 39th in terms of market cap. Additionally, the 24-hour trading volume of ARB has reached $358,674,886, indicating a surge in trading activity.
The Arbitrum token staking proposal
The Arbitrum DAO’s approval of the staking proposal opens up a new opportunity for ARB token holders. Stakers will have the option to lock up their holdings in exchange for a yield, which will be distributed over a 12-month period through a smart contract.
The proposal initially presented different tiers for token allocation, offering stakers the choice to receive 1%, 1.5%, or 1.75% of the total 10 billion ARB supply as staking rewards. A majority of over 66% of DAO members voted in favour of the lowest tier, allocating 1% (100 million tokens) towards staking, while 33% voted against the proposal, revealing a community disagreement regarding the use of treasury funds for staking incentives.
With an estimated annualized yield ranging from 7.84% to 78.43%, this staking mechanism is expected to be an attractive option for ARB token holders to earn additional tokens. Unlike other staking mechanisms, where tokens are typically used for network security or revenue distribution, this arrangement allows stakers to earn tokens directly from the treasury.
The DAO is now poised to consider a subsequent proposal that will focus on the specifics of the staking implementation, including the selection of technology service providers, associated contracts, and the appointment of an auditor to ensure the process’s integrity. A two-week review period will follow, during which the community can assess the implementation details before they are put into practice.
