19 September 2023 — Liquid staking on is set to receive a boost for its first staking period with DeFi Rewards!

During Algorand Governance Period 7, Algorand governors voted to “Boost” DeFi with targeted DeFi Rewards, and was blessed to receive 106,525 ALGO to distribute. 50,000 ALGO was awarded to AlgoRai.Finance in August 2023 and we are awarding the remaining 56,525 ALGO to liquid staking users!

These rewards will be awarded at the end of September 2023, with the exchange rate for staking and unstaking ALGO for mALGO only updated when Governance Rewards for G9 are released at the beginning of January 2024. This means that staking will continue at the current 1:1 exchange rate until then and holders will benefit from the boosted price increase!

Thank you to the Algorand Foundation and all governors for this initiative to incentivise our DeFi ecosystem!

Liquid staking on Algorand is a new innovation and we look forward to bringing more options for Algorand users to harness yield with convenience and safety at the heart of our mission.
