Rewards for Voters

Voters receive:

  1. 50% of election rewards and
  2. 50% of contribution rewards

of Node Partners that they vote for, but will not share in the block production and referral rewards. This is to help Node Partners defray the server costs incurred in maintaining ledgers and processing transactions for the IOST network. When a Node Partner claims the reward, the voter can get his own proportional rewards.

  • Election rewards are issued on a daily basis.
  • When a node partner claims a reward, 50% of the reward is distributed proportionally to the voter as a an airdrop reward.
  • Contribution rewards are issued quarterly, and rewards will be distributed according to the voting data on the chain.
