Up to 25% of a post's payout is awarded to curators (the people who upvoted the post) as a reward for discovering the content. The other 75% is awarded to the author.
Up to 50% of a post's payout is awarded to curators (the people who upvoted the post) as a reward for discovering the content. The other 50% is awarded to the author.
If curators vote for a post within the first 30 minutes of it being created, a portion of their curation reward is added to the author payout. This portion is linear to the age of the post between 0 and 30 minutes. As an example: upvoting at 15 minutes will donate half of your potential curation reward to the author.
If curators vote for a post within the first 5 minutes of it being created, a portion of their curation reward is going back to the reward pool. This portion is linear to the age of the post between 0 and 5 minutes. As an example: upvoting at 15 minutes will donate half of your potential curation reward back to the reward pool.

The rewards are allocated so that 75% of the payout goes to the author of the post/comment, and 25% goes to the curator.
The rewards are allocated so that 50% of the payout goes to the author of the post/comment, and 50% goes to the curator.
Of the 25% that goes to the curator, that portion will be split between the author and the curator if the curator votes within the first 30 minutes. The split of the 25% between the author and curator during the first 30 minutes is calculated linearly based on the time the vote is cast.
Of the 50% that goes to the curator, that portion will be split between going back to the reward pool and the curator if the curator votes within the first 5 minutes. The split of the 50% during the first 5 minutes is calculated linearly based on the time the vote is cast.
