So far the lotus experiment has been going well, the mechanics are standing and the floor price is strong. Now is the time to really see if a community can form by itself around a backed asset, users who join now have very little risk as lotus is pegged to eth and we are close to the floor price.
It's only day 3 and many forks started popping, overall this is good for LOTUS, just be careful as there will be many scams.
A good thing the community can do is go to the forks community channels and ask them to mention lotus in their marketing so we all get bigger.
Another awesome thing that has been happening is a very strong chinese community is forming around lotus, hope it can grow more.
Staking is live
Staking is live on the site https://thewhitelotus.xyz!, the new staking doesn't have a timelock.
rewards are currently going to the MUSE DAO multi sig, we will drip past rewards to the staking contract in the coming days to give time to more stakers to stake and get their share.
So far no many sells occured at the floor price or above active bins, so staking rewards are small. You might even get better rewards by adding liquidity to lotus-eth.
Bugged Staking Contract
Some users staked into a contract that was never announced, unfortunately there isn't much to do as new lotus can't be minted, and the team has no funds. this was a fair launch. It is not our fault.
However, it is always nice to try and do good if possible so if the protocol grows and generates revenue will be good to send them lotus back and it's one of my first priorities when possible.
If lotus grows and my dev rewards become substantial, I will donate from myself to past stakers.
Also if we do any airdrop or get airdrops from other communities for LOTUS holders I will make sure they are included.
As per the docs the next step is to release a launchpad/factory contract built on top of Lotus and Joe, I will be working on that for the next few weeks and will announce when it's live, probably around mid June.
The idea here is there may be teams that launch with the lotus factory contract and can airdrop the original LOTUS community or pay a fee for using it, we'll support them and grow their backed liquidity when they launch.
