2. Governance Vote — $rATOM Mintdrop Campaign
The StaFi $rATOM Mintdrop Campaign was first launched on August 30th 2022 on StaFiHub to promote the staking of ATOM or our rATOM V2 Solution. A share of $200,000 FIS was prepared with an APR of 1.35 FIS per staked ATOM. However, a low participation rate was observed leaving 197,000 FIS unclaimed. We have launched a governance vote on the 18th November to obtain feedback from participants and improve any future campaigns launched.

Development work in December progresses forward with the rToken APP V4 being the core focus of the StaFi Team. All in all, optimization of rETH App staking and validator related functions has been fully completed. Optimization of rMATIC, rBNB and other rProducts will be continued through technological advancements and further optimizations of the staking process to provide an improved rToken management experience for our users. Community interaction efforts also remain a top priority with an abundance of off-chain governance events being carried out; we will continue to strengthen StaFi Warrior participation and explore improved governance methods in the near future. Let’s keep focusing on our long term vision this December!
StaFi is the first DeFi protocol unlocking liquidity of staked assets. Users can stake PoS tokens through StaFi and receive rTokens in return, which are available for trading, while still earning staking rewards. rToken is a synthetic staking derivative issued by StaFi to users when users stake PoS tokens through StaFi rToken App . rTokens are anchored to the PoS tokens staked by users and the corresponding staking rewards. rTokens can be transferred and traded at any time.
