What's the SPK Network?
According to its Light Paper, the SPK Network is
a decentralized Web 3.0 protocol that rewards value creators and infrastructure providers appropriately and autonomously by distributing reward tokens so that every user, creator, and platform, will be able to earn rewards on a level playing field.
[...] the SPK Network aims to offer decentralised storage, Token Creation, NFT creation, Immutable Breakaway Communities and direct digital ownership of the creator's account and digital assets on a Web 3.0, DPoS protocol where the creator cannot be censored by centralised gatekeepers.
And is there a token?
The SPK Network is fueled by more than one token: the more notable ones are LARYNX and SPEAK (SPK).
The first one can be used to mint the latter - it's in fact a miner token - while the SPK is the governance token of the SPK Network.
To mint SPK tokens you have to first Power UP your LARYNX tokens and then delegate them to your preferred node operator.
Ok, but first... how do you get LARYNX!?

Right now there are two ways to get LARYNX:
- You can trade it on vue.dlux.io (LARYNX/HIVE and LARYNX/HBD pairs)
- Or, if you had some HIVE (liquid or powered up) in your wallet on January 9, 8:00 UTC, you were eligible for the LARYNX airdrop, so you can check here on how to claim your reward for free every month untill the end of the airdrop!
N.B. I said "right now" because in the future LARYNX will be obtained by sending HIVE to the Service Infrastructure Pool (SIP), which
is a revolutionary new way to use DeFi (Decentralised Finance) staking pools to fund a project's activities and incentivise Breakaway Communities and their content in a sustainable, deflationary way which locks in liquidity permanently.
How to Power Up your LARYNX tokens
Keep in mind that the SPK token isn't still available as its release is planned for Tuesday, August 9, 2:00 UTC: right now you can only test and start getting used to the process, but SPK tokens won't be earned untill the release of the token.
So, set your alarm and be ready to officially delegate your LARYNX this Tuesday!
Now, let's see how it works!
As you can see, the delegation process is easy and straightforward, while the project itself seems interesting and worth following its progress!
If you can't see your delegation, try waiting a minute and refreshing a few times the page: it should fix the issue.
As said above, by delegating your LARYNX you start minting SPK tokens: the proposed APR is currently set to 0.03%, split between the delegator and the delegatee, 0.015% each.
This rate is calculated daily, and is non-compounding, based on Powered Up LARYNX only.
