PAW can be claimed on the front page.
The regular faucet is just giving small amounts. The other social account rewards are giving out a big part of the General Rewards.
Holders of a reputable Twitter, Steam, YouTube or Reddit account can claim a lot of the distributed PAW in intervals here by placing their PAW address in their profile.
Referral links are given out after claiming the social reward and allow for another 10% bonus reward each time it was used by another person to claim a reward.
The rewards payout is dynamically adjusted based on:
- How much is currently available on the General Rewards account.
- How many people claimed within the last 24 hours.
- How much percentage wise was claimed with each social rewards section 24 hours prior. A social reward section will have less payout if it was heavily claimed within the last 24 hours while those who were claimed less will have a higher payout.
It's also adjusted for each individual based on how many rewards have been claimed before. Each claim within a period time reduces the reward by a certain percentage.
Staking rewards can be received for locking in PAW for 180 or 90 days.
Every 24 hours 49% allocated for stakers is given out as a reward in propotion to their stake.
The staking area has an introduction area that gives out bonus rewards when someone who was invited declares you as their inviter (introducer).
The bonus reward is 5% off the invitees current staking balance and is given to both inviter and invitee.
The staking area can be found here.
Everyone who runs a fast server can run and operate a tribe and receive a PAW reward for it.
For a tribe to receive reward it must have between 0.01% to 0.25% of the total PAW supply delegated to them. As well as provide a good up time and fast connection.
The reward amount and multiplier depends on how much PAW got delegated to it.
The rewarding distributionThe percentage of the delegated PAW towards 0.25% of the total supply is the % towards a 10x multiplier.
For example: Formula: (10x / 100) * (DELEGATED PAW / 850705917.3025 * 100)
Anything exceeding 0.25% will go down in rewards in the same way it went to the 0.25% range up!
Only nodes that keep up with the network and have a good connectivity get the full reward.
Nodes only get the full reward if they don't lag behind more than 1000 blocks from the network and respond in less than 250ms.
Otherwise the node will only receive 20% of the reward.
