PoS Validation Rewards

How a Bridge Validator Earns Revenue

Rewards

Each successful cross-chain transaction will collect fees. CryptoLink will share these fees with the Network Validators. A portion of the collected gas fee will be split between all of the Network Validators that provided attestations for the processed transaction.
Fees are distributed to the Network Validators in the form that it is collected... For instance, AnyToAny's fees are collected in wrapped blockchain native coins. These native coins will be distributed in real-time to validator wallets. Rewards are distributed on a per chain per miner staked basis. Early tiers earn higher relative APRs.
There are no lock periods for Validators - as opposed to traditional LP providers (see Community Rewards)
Network Validators earn 20% from the transaction fees accumulated on their respective chains.
Revenue Model for Bridge Validators

Hypothetical Scenario

Assume tiers Genesis - Tier 2 are filled on the Polygon blockchain and CryptoLink is generating $120k in 24hr volume on Polygon. Each Validator is rewarded:
Tier
Amount Staked
Rewards
Relative APR
Genesis
$10k
$16,060
138%
Tier 1
$25k
$16,060
55%
Tier 2
$50k
$16,060
32%
Note: Since the above example refers to the Polygon chain, all rewards from the table would be in MATIC (the blockchain native gas coin for Polygon).
NOTE: Rewards are distributed to participants who stake liquidity to enable the utility of tokens used in cross-chain messaging. All bridge validation rewards are subject to change at any time. Rewards are not guaranteed and should not be considered a security or a form of investment.
