Staking & Validation Rewards — 350 million RFUEL tokens

Distributed to those staking RFUEL and validating transactions on the network. The APR generated through staking will vary depending on the staking year and the total % of staked RFUEL. Note that we have made a small change to our originally anticipated staking rewards release schedule over the years. Specifically, we have adjusted the release rate by front-loading them to an extent, so as to reward those who commit to the long-term success of the network through early staking.

50 million RFUEL will be distributed for free to new Rio Wallets at a rate of 10 RFUEL per wallet for the first 5 million unique mobile wallets (based on device IDs). Note that these promotional RFUEL tokens will be locked, meaning that they can only be used to pay for transaction fees, cannot be transferred to other users, and will only be valid until January 31, 2026. After that time, all promotional tokens will automatically be burnt.
