A ZCN reward is minted every block and paid out to Miners, Sharders, and Blobbers
In the first year of mainnet, the active Blobbers receive a total of ~7,500,000 ZCN in block rewards on Züs. The portion each Blobber receives is determined by their relative storage contribution to the network over a period of time. These contributions are measured using the Blobber Weight Formula, which is explained below.
Miners & Sharders.
In the first year of mainnet, the Active Set as a whole will be paid a total of ~8,500,000 ZCN in block rewards. The rewards will be spread out equally to its 141 Miners and Sharders.**After the first year of mainnet, future network upgrades will modify the Active Set selection process, and thus the annual block reward breakdown per Miner and Sharder may also see modifications.
