Stakes and liquidity providers will be able to choose between standard staking (in which staked assets can be withdrawn at any time) or lockups. Locking CDO tokens or LP tokens means they can’t be revoked until the lockup period is over. In return, the stake/LP provider locking in his funds gets an instant staking score that would have been generated after lockup time.
There are following lockup vaults available: 3,6,9 and 12 months.
Example: John locked his 12000 CDO tokens for 6 months. He instantly gets a 6000 staking score, his account is being upgraded to the 2nd level, he will get +10% bonus to reward distribution.
