DINE Token Reward Calculation

DINE token rewards are earned in a few ways:

Verified Eater Content Rewards (VEC)

For verified review content creation the consists of videos and photos. Verified means that consumer has uploaded a receipt from the dining experience and have been validated by Plato’s automatic anti-cheating mechanism.

  • Df (dining factor) below Df encapsultes the total spent and verified from receipt scan, the amount of DINE token reward will be directly related to how much is spent as well as Rf (see below)

  • Rf (reputation factor) below encapsulates number of content reviews, followers, confirmed restaurants you have eaten at + number of likes, your spending at restaurants - which is total amount that you’ve spent at restaurant (scanned receipts) and total time spent eating at restaurant via Plato.

Residual Rewards aka Word of Mouth (WoM)

For verified review content a user creates, if someone favorite restaurant from that post or liked the post and then visit the restaurant in a later date, the original create will be earning Residual Earning.
