B. Staking

ARTIC token holders can participate in governance by staking tokens, and ARTIC token stakers can gain special event participation and bonus opportunities. Stacked ARTIC tokens are not liquid and cannot be transferred or sold. A certain unstaking period is required to release the staked ARTIC token. The staked ARTIC token may be used for governance voting in the DAO. ARTIC introduces a governance mechanism to allow stakers with staked ARTIC tokens to vote in favour or against various proposed changes to the ARTIC ecosystem. Each ARTIC token that is staked is worth a vote, and the more ARTIC tokens the staker has staked, the more influence it can have on voting results of the vote. A detailed explanation of this follows.
