OlympusDAO Launched OHM V2 Bond
OlympusDAO went live with V2 Bonds on January 9 with two main updates.
Auto-staking. Bonds now auto-stake fully and user's balance is locked for the duration of the bond. This means that the bonds no longer vest linearly and users will earn the discount and the rebase rewards for the full duration of the bond with one click, and save time as well as Gas fees.
Flexible Vesting. V2 will introduce Fixed-Term and Fixed-Expiration Bonds and have multiple different vesting terms as opposed to V1, which were all held for 5 days. Further, users will be able to hold multiple types of bonds for the same assets in V2 (for example, you can now hold a 3-day and 60-day DAI bond). Source
