I'm new to Ethereum and just messing around with the code on my free time. I heard that the current block reward is 3ETH, and I want to change it just for fun.

In the end, I managed to find a line in Constants.java that seems to be what I'm looking for but it is set to be

    private static final BigInteger BLOCK_REWARD = new BigInteger("1500000000000000000");

which is 1.5x10^15 wei. This is significantly less than 3ETH, so I'm wondering if this is the correct value to be changing at all. This value seems to be the right one based on usages though, so I'm pretty confused.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
