- How much can i earn staking VEIL?
The individual VEIL rewards depend on the relevant blockchain metrics: Block Reward, PoS Block Time and Total Staked %.
Every block one staker is randomly selected whereas 1 staked coin counts as one “lottery ticket”. The difficulty adjustments regulates the amount of PoW and PoS blocks, whereas Proof of Stake is always the main underlying consensus. The selected staker has the right to create a new block and broadcast it to the network. He then receives the block reward in return.
The Block Reward is currently 80 VEIL, whereas 40 are distributed to either the staker or miner, 8 to the Lab, 24 to the Budget and 8 are burned immediately.
The next Block Reward decrease by 20% will occur in Januray 2021 and further every year thereafter.
In our Staking Calculator you can play with the Total Staked % to make reward assumptions under certain network conditions.
