Block Reward Reduction

Hooray! we have reached a milestone and it is time for a re-calculation.
There are 400 million MAN tokens in total in the pool of Matrix AI Network. In the current model, the total mining output will cap at 320 million. The remaining 80 million will be used for rewarding the use of the Matrix Computing Platform, e.g. MANTA. Like with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies featuring PoW mining, MAN output is designed to gradually decrease in order to bring up production cost and the value of MAN. This will also help boost MAN’s circulation in the market. Meanwhile, compared with Bitcoin, Matrix has adopted a smoother reduction curve and a rising price model for MAN.
Based on current model, the output will be reduced, and mining profits are expected to drop to 85% percent of the original. A detailed calculation can be seen below :
