In this Substrate Recipe it says nothing about the rewards miners get for including blocks into the chain in the PoW consensus.
But I found that Kulupu uses a rewards pallet which, at first glance, manages the rewards for the miners.
The questions are:
- Is it necessary to implement a similar pallet to give miners rewards? Will the PoW chain reach consensus and function normally (produce blocks) without it? (as per recipe)
- Are there any other (maybe Parity's) implementations of such reward mechanism?
