Mint Module (Osmosis)

Osmosis’s mint module is responsible for creating tokens in a flexible way to reward validators, incentivize providing pool liquidity, provide funds for Osmosis governance, and pay developers to maintain and improve Osmosis.
The module is also responsible for reducing the token creation and distribution by a set period until it reaches its maximum supply (see reduction_factor and reduction_period_in_epochs)
The module uses time basis epochs supported by the epochs module.
The Quicksilver development team used the Mint Module to distribute inflation issuance, and has refactored it to support the protocol’s specific needs, such as participation rewards.
