RE: Nectar-Queen v1 "White Paper"
Good question! For the rewards, some are earned, and others are purchased directly (often with buy orders that catch temporary drops in value) and the idea there is to have queen system agents be a net-positive for their local environment, by supporting some other projects in the process of distributing rewards, rather than simply distributing swap.hive alongside the components. PLN is likely to have the most variety in that regard, but the same principle will carry over to any of the other pools. This approach gives some valid excuse to put occasional buy pressure across a wide array of tokens while still keeping everything in order, and also works as a kind of value net in the case that one of those tokens were suddenly worth more.
