Imagine how much liquidity and trading volume it would bring - also it would be awesome to buy and hold HIVE, knowing that it has direct impact on your vote value without being locked for 3 months (hope I'm not missing something here ;)
I guess all it will bring is decline in hive value and decrease in in overall interest in hive.
There was an idea behind power down period - I guess to prevent hive dumping.
What is more, I think we can agree that DeFi tokens and hive do not go together. I look forward to wLeo launch, but I'm pessimistic about whole thing.
