To promote the utilization of the ThreeFold Grid’s Internet capacity, we created a mechanism that is called “cultivation”.
Cultivation is meant to incentivise sales channels to promote the Threefold Grid’s Internet capacity and earn TFT for it.
When a user utilizes a farmer’s capacity, the transaction is distributed as follows:
- 10% of the utilization fee is rewarded to Farmers.
- 25% gets burnt to ensure scarcity of TFT in the new Internet economy.
- 5% goes to the Foundation for promotional purposes.
- 60% is used to reward the sales channels.
If the Farmer sells the capacity of their 3Nodes themselves, they will benefit from the 60% sales channel reward on top of the 10% utilization reward.
