How are the reward tokens generated on the DAO?

I don't really understand. If I back a project it gets funding right? Are the managers of the project required to "give back" to the DAO if the project is very successful (economically speaking)?

Reward won't be tokens but Ether as I understood. DAO tokens are only used to share voting power as shares in a company. When you invest in a company, your reward is (most of the time) dollars, not shares.

  • ok. But what about my other question? How are the returns made? May 25, 2016 at 7:19
  • @SilverCookies as you might now, a SE question should have only one question. So I picked up the first one. You probably should ask the other separately in new posts. Thanks. May 25, 2016 at 7:25

Reward tokens are created on a per proposal basis and awarded to current token holders and stay with them even if the holder Splits. They can be claimed through getMyReward()

Ideally, the project the contractors develop should be what pays the DAO through payDAO(). For Slockit's Universal Sharing Network, the Slock contracts themselves pay the DAO automatically whenever they are hired. The value of that money is added to DAO.rewards balance.

  • so in terms of reward it depends on the proposal itself, right? Jun 1, 2016 at 7:10
