Pool rewards


The pool uses the PPLNS rewards payout method, with rewards being calculated for each epoch (360 blocks, approximately 60 minutes). This method is preferred for Aleo because solutions remain valid for the entire epoch rather than on a per-block basis.

Participants compute and send shares (coinbase puzzle solutions with the specified difficulty) to the pool. Eventually, one of the shares matches the current network difficulty, resulting in the pool receiving a reward.

A pool fee is deducted from the total rewards of the epoch before distribution. The remaining rewards are then proportionally distributed among all participants, based on the computing power they contributed. A participant's contribution is assessed by comparing the number of shares they submitted to the total number of shares submitted by all participants during the epoch.


Payouts are automatically processed after reaching the minimum auto-payout threshold.
