Macro market volatility sparked block reward rethink
The Klaytn team said the proposal was intended to “address the volatility currently seen in the macro markets”. The team explained that the current macroeconomic landscape is resulting in “unprecedented volatility” in the crypto markets.
The proposal, explained the team, is meant to build “momentum for the sustainable growth” of Klaytn.
If passed it would result in the block reward going from 9.6 KLAY to 6.4 KLAY per klaytn. The allocation of this newly-minted amount would see 50% going to the GC, 40% to the Klaytn Growth Fund (KGF), and 10% to the Klaytn Improvement Reserve.
Originally, when the proposal was unveiled on 23 October, the value of KLAY shot up by 106%. As of today (24 October), the crypto was still trading up, but only by 21.82% to $0.182, according to CoinMarketCap.
