How Ethanim miners get EPU by mining
The Ethanim will offer EPU as a reward to each party that makes a contribution and provides resources to the system. And it also encourages applications to build their own token economic models to reward the corresponding nodes.
Miners are the basic components of the Ethanim system and keep it running properly. Miners with different roles receive tokens in the following ways:
（1）Consensus Node: The Leviatom protocol of Trias is applied to Ethanim’s consensus layer. Miners are rewarded with EPU by staking TRIAS to run consensus nodes, maintaining main chain security, performing smart contract computation, and completing snapshot retrieval requests, etc.
（2）GPU Mining Machine: Miners can connect GPU mining machines to Ethanim virtual GPU resource pooling and get token rewards based on their GPU computing power contribution.
（3）Storage Nodes: Storage nodes are responsible for running Ethanim’s eternal file system, where users can access their own idle hard drives and receive staking rewards based on the amount of storage space provided and the length of continuous storage.
（4）Validators: Validators can be run by users with consumer-grade devices, which is a very low threshold and can benefit more common users and promote the decentralization and horizontal scalability of the system. More details can be found in “Validation Mining” below.
