Reward System


All blockchain communities that are decentralized have some sort of rewards system for people who help secure their network. In some systems like Bitcoin, these rewards are given to ‘miners’, a select subgroup of people who secure the Bitcoin network. In DecentraHub, anyone who has DCNTR can help secure the network and is able to receive rewards for their efforts!

As of today there are three distinct groups who all help out DecentraHub in different ways and are all receiving rewards for those efforts.

How to Get Rewards

DCNTR operates using a Proof of Stake security mechanism which means that in order to help secure the network, you must prove you hold DCNTR. The first two methods below are two ways you can use your DCNTR to earn interest on what you already have. If you don’t have DCNTR, but you want to earn some, the third method allows your to earn by helping the community.

Method 1 – Running a Masternode

Running a Masternode, which requires 10,000 DCNTR.
(Note: Requires some technical know-how)

Method 2 – Stake Your DCNTR

Staking your DCNTR, which has no required minimum, but requires you to keep your wallet active.

Method 3 – Helping Out

There are also opportunities available all the time to help out with community projects funded by DCNTR. If you help these projects along, you become eligible to earn DCNTR for your time and work. These opportunities include development, marketing, customer support, and more. If you’d like to help out with these activities, please reach out to us on Discord or in the Forums.

How Much DCNTR is Created, and How is it Distributed?

Every 60 seconds, 6 DCNTR are created (Also sometimes called minting). These DCNTR are then automatically divided into three pieces. A fixed amount (1 DCNTR) goes into a pool that is used to fund the growth of DCNTR. (Method 3) The Masternodes vote on which projects that amount should be spent on, and then the community members who proposed the project claim the DCNTR. The remainder (5 DCNTR) gets divided between the Masternodes and the Stakers. (Methods 1 & 2) The split between Masternodes and Stakers differs depending on whether or not the winning stake was DCNTR or zDCNTR (zDCNTR earning 3 a zDCNTR reward rather than 2 awarded to DCNTR stakes). This current distribution incentivizes zDCNTR staking to support the anonymity set size.

How Much DCNTR Should I Actually Expect to Make?

The reward system by design has a lot of randomness built into it. This is done for security purposes, but it can make calculations a bit tricky. With that said, a Masternode requires 10,000 DCNTR, and each Masternode should be getting a reward approximately every 1-2 days, but this may vary depending on the number of currently active masternodes. For staking, a very general rule of thumb is that for every 1,000 DCNTR (slightly over that in fact), you can expect a staking reward once every 30 days, but remember that this is a completely randomized process. You may go for 15 days without a reward and then get two in one day.
