There will be NINE (9) different staking pools to stake different characters based on their hierarchy. Amount of rewards received will increase from a Beggar to a King. You can also earn more rewards as the level of your gopher increases (leveling-up-your-gophers).
When staking your Hello Gophers NFT, rewards earned will be distributed in THREE (3) different channels. 1. Different characters in different Staking Pools will receive different types and amount of rewards. Example, peasants will earn SHARDs while Royals will earn SHARDs through tax and they are able to steal SHARDs and NFTs. 2. Same characters with different rarity in the same Staking Pool will receive different amount of rewards. Example, a Royal Gopher with a higher Royal Ranking Score will earn more SHARDs and have a higher chance to steal SHARDs and newly minted NFTs. 3. Same characters with different levels in the same Staking Pools will receive different amount of rewards. Example, a gopher (Peasant or Royal) that has been leveled up can also earn more of their respective rewards.
The Castle is where the King keeps all his SHARDs. The king carries a golden key around with him that can unlock his royal vault filled with SHARDs.

Daily Rewards (SHARDs)
*Royal's APY is an estimation based on the probability and game mechanism.
When you stake your Peasant Gopher in a staking pool, a percentage of SHARDs that you claim as rewards will be locked. This model is implemented to prevent players from dumping the SHARD rewards that they will receive. SHARDs in the staking pool (unlocked and locked) that are not claimed will not be able to use any of the game's features (e.g. purchasing Gen 1 Gophers, leveling up gophers, or any other in game features). The same will be applied when you stake your Royal Gopher. The SHARD rewards that you can claim from the tax payment will be dependent on the amount of SHARDs unlocked overtime.
500 SHARDs are unlocked. 9,500 SHARDs are locked. Total rewards: 10,000 SHARDs
When 500 SHARDs are claimed as rewards from staking a Peasant Gopher, a Royal Gopher can only receive the tax rewards from the 500 SHARDs and not the total 10,000 SHARDs. The tax from the remaining 9,500 SHARDs can be received once they are unlocked over time.
When you claim your unlocked SHARD rewards, the claimed SHARDs will then be able to use the game's features (e.g. purchasing Gen 1 Gophers, leveling up gophers, or any other in game features).
The amount of SHARDs that you can claim as rewards for staking your Peasant Gophers in each staking pool respectively will change each week. From Week 1 onwards once your Peasant Gopher is staked, 2% of rewards are unlocked and can be claimed immediately. Rewards will be unlocked by an increase of 2% till it each consecutive week till you unstake your gopher or claim rewards. The unlocked % will increase 2% each week till it reaches 100%, which is a period of 50 weeks. If you have claimed your rewards for the week, the remaining rewards will be locked till Week 50. All locked rewards will be unlocked in Week 50.

Example: If you claimed your rewards on Week 1, which is 2% of 11,200, then in Week 2 you are only able to claim 4% of 11,200. However, if you did not claim on Week 1, then in Week 2 you are able to claim 4% of 22,400. The unlocked percentage increases by 2% every consecutive week. By not claiming every week, you can enjoy a higher unlocked percentage of the amount of cumulative SHARDs earned by a Beggar Gopher each week.
