ADANOMICS – Cardano ADA supply, reserves and rewards

Where do Cardano ADA staking rewards come from? I often get asked “Where do ADA rewards come from?” and “Can I expect to earn consistent returns from my investment in the coming years?” It is important for Cardano investors and community to understand that this is not some magical pixie dust that gets sprinkled on stake pools and delegators, but a scientifically derived and mathematically accountable system that takes a multitude of economic variables and Cardano product lifecycle stages into account.
