What is the Arbitrum STIP?
The STIP is a 3 month incentive program voted on by the Arbitrum DAO to bring renewed interest, attract new users, and build liquidity across all the decentralized apps that call Arbitrum home.
Frax requested 1.5m ARB from a total of 50m to increase liquidity for all of its products and assets. The Arbitrum DAO voted heavily in favor to include Frax in this program.
