The Collator Pool is distributed to ENJ stakers and active Collator Nodes. Each active collator is distributed an equal share of EFI every block.
Collator pool tokens are divided into a portion for the node and a portion for stakers. Collator nodes will need to spend approximately $1000 per month on sufficient hardware and networking, and these costs are factored into the EFI distribution.
Efinity Treasury Pool
The Treasury Pool serves two purposes. It functions as a decentralized liquidity pool for Efinity Swap, and also allows the Efinity community to distribute EFI to projects that benefit the ecosystem.
Using the governance process, the community may propose and vote on treasury grants that transfer EFI to the chosen project. Grants are vested using the Scheduler module and subsequent governance may also reverse a treasury grant.
The Treasury pool will start off with 2.5% of EFI tokens and will be replenished with a 10% of the Staking & Pools fund and fees thereafter.
Price Discovery Pool
The price discovery process is designed to create unprecedented liquidity in the NFT space. Every top bid on the market will receive EFI tokens from the Price Discovery Pool (and fees related to the token) until their order is filled or beaten by a higher bid.
This creates an incentive for users to provide liquidity for every token on the network. For as long as the bid remains valid, the bidder will collect EFI.
This allows the market to find a natural base price for non-fungible tokens that are otherwise very difficult to price.
Everyone wins: NFT holders get liquidity, and bidders get passive income (or perhaps their favorite NFT at a good price).
Fuel Tank Pool
The Fuel Tank pool provides a replenishing source of EFI that may only be used for paying transaction fees.
Fuel tanks will slowly increase their access to a share of this pool by performing non-smart-contract transactions over a period of time.
Since fuel tanks cannot be withdrawn from, the pool is solely used for subsidizing transaction fees for active projects.
