RewardActor #

RewardActor is where unminted Filecoin tokens are kept. RewardActor contains a RewardMap which is a mapping from owner addresses to Reward structs.

Reward struct is created to preserve the flexibility of introducing block reward vesting into the protocol. MintReward creates a new Reward struct and adds it to the RewardMap.

A Reward struct contains a StartEpoch that keeps track of when this Reward is created, Value that represents the total number of tokens rewarded, and EndEpoch which is when the reward will be fully vested. VestingFunction is currently an enum to represent the flexibility of different vesting functions. AmountWithdrawn records how many tokens have been withdrawn from a Reward struct so far. Owner addresses can call WithdrawReward which will withdraw all vested tokens that the investor address has from the RewardMap so far. When AmountWithdrawn equals Value in a Reward struct, the Reward struct will be removed from the RewardMap.
