Lets assume I own 10% of all XLM of the network and I want to receive inflation for my XLM.

By default this option "inflation destination" is not set on my account. So question is - where does "inflation I am entitled to" go if I have not set this option?

1 Answer 1


Unallocated inflation lumens are returned to the fee pool.

    So lumens I might be entitled to are returned to fee pool? I was understanding that this "inflation destination" is more of a vote. If you are not voting, youre entitled to nothing and your portion is split among those who voted.

    That's actually the same, because your portion goes to the fee pool which in turn is used to calculate the distributed lumens, see formula in the link.
