Foresight News reports that PlutusDAO has started a discussion on the Arbitrum forum about turning on ARB staking and giving token inflation to users who lock their tokens. The first opportunity to mint tokens will be on March 15, 2024 (the minting function may only be called once a year). The Arbitrum DAO has the power to mint 2% of the total ARB supply annually as inflation. The 1.75% of the token supply that PlutusDAO suggests minting and distributing over the course of a year.
PlutusDAO advises using an equivalent sum of funds from the Arbitrum DAO treasury and a mechanism for allocating funds among ARB lockers as the minting function is not yet functional.
