PoS Eanings

Estimating PoS earnings

  • Proof-of-stake earnings depend on current PoS difficulty and the number of coins you have locked for staking.
  • The more coins you stake, the better chance you have to “win” the right to sign the next PoS block.
  • Of course, it’s important to estimate your chances and predict how much you can earn in some way.
  • Here is the most straightforward way to do so.

    • First, we need to get the current PoS difficulty, which can be found in the Block Explorer.

      • This value is then divided by 1000000000000 (10 ^ 12) , which in the EvoX network is one coin basis.
    • Second, we again divide it by 288.

      • This operation lets us take the PoS mining timestamp frame into account.
      • Without further details, this factor provides hash variety in PoS mining and can be somewhere between 256 and 320.
      • It’s reasonable to use the value of 288 here.
  • Now we have an estimation of how many coins participate in PoS mining currently as Coins_in_PoS = PoS_difficulty / 1000000000000 / 288

    Or :

  • Where C is the total amount of coins participating in PoS mining
  • And D_PoS is the current PoS difficulty.

  • As you may know, the EvoX network emits an average of 1 coin each minute with a 50-50 spread between PoS and PoW.

  • That makes it 720 potential PoS reward coins per day.
  • So if you owned all the coins in PoS, that could be your total day earnings.
  • And if you divide C by 720, you will get the number of coins you need to mine 1 EvoX coin a day.
  • Now, you can estimate the number of coins you will earn as

    your_PoS_earnings = 720 * your_staking_coins / C
    • Or, in other words :

  • Where E_daily is the estimated number of coins you'll earn per day, and N is the number of coins you're staking.


Please keep in mind that all the above is an expectation and can vary heavily.
