In this article we explore what crossing the Baseline Target Threshold means, how Filecoin block rewards work, and how block rewards respond to network dynamics. Due to the mathematics involved, and Medium’s lack of LaTeX support, we have published this as a PDF hosted on Filecoin. You can view the article here:
