There are several reasons why the daily reward pool might not be totally allocated on any given day:
- Since for some reward pools we impose a cap on the max amount of rewards that any single user can get, if less than 100/cap users hit the cap, we will be left with unallocated rewards.
- If we have an outage during which we cannot pick up user’s activity for any particular day, we will be left with that/those day’s rewards unallocated
- No users participate during any given day
Any “leftover” rewards will be evenly distributed between the remaining days in the active period (Tuesday 00:00 UTC to Monday 23:59 UTC ).
E.g: $1,400 weekly pool—> $200 daily pool, only $100 gets allocated on first day, remaining pool is now $1,300, so new daily rewards become $1,300/6= $216.7 and so on (day’s pool = Total Remaining Pool/Remaining days in period)
