General

  • The protocol's validator set and stake history get updated at the final two blocks of every epoch. This is also when rewards are distributed.

Rewards

  • Rewards come from newly issued tokens.
    • Fixed emissions per block. For each successfully produced block, 16 TRX is rewarded to the block producer and 160 TRX is rewarded to all the block attesters. For each epoch, a maximum of 1,267,200 TRX will be distributed to the top 127 validators and their respective stakers.
  • Factors that impact realized rewards.
    • Actual produced blocks. Rewards are paid for canonically added blocks only.
    • Commissions.

Risk

  • The protocol does not have any penalties or slashing.
