From the design document:
The following voting will be added:
- number of reputed signers eligible for reputed signer block rewards
All of the new voting types will apply a protocol rule that an abstention will be interpreted as the value currently enforced by the protocol. [...] The protocol values applied to the current block should be the consensus 60 blocks deep.
Each block will have a reputed signer reward given to a single signer. The reward should be given in proportion to the reputations as they were 60 blocks deep. Here is an example using small numbers for clarity: Let us suppose that shareholders have voted to reward 3 reputed share addresses. Let us suppose that reputed share address A has 20 weighted reputation points, share address B has 50 weighted reputation points and share address C has 30 weighted reputation points. Over a period of 2000 blocks, the total rewards for each reputed address can be calculated. If A has received 19.9% of the reward, B has received 50.3% of the rewards, and C has received 29.8% of the rewards, the block reward must be awarded to C, because his reward over the last 2000 is the farthest below what it should be, according to his reputation score.
