LIBRE tokens can be "staked" providing a return in exchange for securing the network. The staking return is calculated using the following formula: APY(s,t) = Min(t) + sqrt(s) * ( Max(t)-Min(t) ) Where s is the index of time elapsed since day one of staking, t is the staking length, Min is a function of time that decreases with t, and Max is also a function of t. The degradation of Min and Max is also a function of the square root of time, but s and not t. The staking calculation ensures two behaviors:
Staking Earlier earns more
Staking Longer earns more These are core in the inherent game mechanics of the LIBRE token incentives.
