1. Each pool within the validator set receives an equal share of the reward (if all validators always produce blocks and don’t skip them) at the end of staking epoch.
2. Pool rewards are proportionally distributed between a validator and the staking delegators.
3. Annual staking rewards depend on the collected transaction fees and disinflationary schedule of annual network emission rate as a function of total circulating supply that is recalculated every epoch. The network is expected to launch with an annual emission of 8%. It will decrease by 15% every year until reaching 1.5% and 90% of this VLX will be distributed amongst validators and delegators.
