The individuals who vote, get rewarded regardless of their vote. There are three possible ways to vote your EGT, as a way to increase member participation. In each vote proposal, people can vote to approve a proposal, choose to abstain, or can vote to deny a proposal. A member might choose to abstain because they are agnostic about a proposal or because they lack the in-depth knowledge needed to formulate a position. Rewards are granted regardless of the outcome of a proposal, including in cases where the proposal fails to reach quorum.
