Jan 26, 2024

Hi DeFiChain Community!

As another week rolls by, we bring you the latest updates, developments, and opportunities within the DeFiChain ecosystem. Let's get straight into the highlights of this week.

DUSD Lock (Bond) Update: Finally Live

DUSD Bonds went live on the DeFiChain network on 23rd January. This marks a major milestone for the stability and adoption of the DUSD stablecoin. To recap, the rewards for DUSD Bonds will originate from the previously paused BBB. Once live, up to 20 DUSD per block will be distributed, with the 1-year bond receiving 3/8 and the 2-year bond 5/8 of the rewards, as outlined in the DFIP. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.

Community Reward Campaign: Your Chance to Win

Don't forget that the first of three Community Reward Campaigns is live until January 31st, with a focus on highlighting DeFiChain across various platforms. This two-week-long quest offers multiple tasks, each completion bringing you closer to winning a share of the 1,000 DFI prize pool.
