A ZCN block reward is minted with each new block and paid out to Miners, Sharders, and Blobbers to incentivize the growth of the Züs Cloud Network expansion.
In the first year of mainnet, the Blobber network as a whole will receive a total of ~7,500,000 ZCN in block rewards designated for all active Blobbers on the Züs Cloud Network. The proportion of block reward that each Blobber receives is determined by their contributions to the network relative to the average blobber’s contribution on the network. 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.
