To couple with the update to the PERP token release schedule, we will shorten the length of the staking rewards to 3 months. This will give us more freedom to move and iterate faster.
Will update the content above soon.

As I understand, “Begin Inflation Rate” and “Inflation Decay Rate” is pr. week while “Terminal Inflation Rate” is pr. year.

Question: Do stakers need to claim staking rewards every week, or can fees be accumulated and claimed when needed? (“Trading fees sharing are claimable right after the epoch.”). I ask because gas fees can be expensive.
