Bonding, only being recently popularized with the DeFi 2.0 wave, is one of the main concepts that allows Campfire protocol to grow its treasury.
Bond discounts are more or less unforeseen due to the secondary bond market's price discovery mechanism. In comparison to staking, bonding is considered an active investing approach that should be managed continuously in order to minimize risk.
The bonding process works in the following way; Campfire protocol will sells its own token ($CAMPFIRE) at a discount of its current market value in exchange for other assets. The discounted $CAMPFIRE will then be vested over a period of 5 days.
Initially, the protocol will support bonding of only 2 main asset types; LP tokens and single assets such as BUSD, BNB, ETH, etc.

Protocol Owned/Controlled Liquidity

When users exchange LP tokens for discounted $CAMPFIRE, the LP tokens essentially become controlled by the protocol itself, which mean Campfire will own its own liquidity. The quantity of LP that the Treasury possesses and controls is referred to as POA (Protocol Owned Assets). The protocol's operating infrastructure becomes more strong as more POA is kept in escrow. To simplify market operations and safeguard token holders, a robust POA guarantees that there is always locked exit liquidity in our trading pools. Since Campfire has become its own market, the protocol has accrued a constant income stream through LP rewards, boosting our treasury, in addition to providing further stability for $CAMPFIRE holders.
