What are network emissions?

“Network emissions” is the term used to describe the XRD tokens that are created and distributed by the Radix Protocol to stakers and validators as a reward for locking up tokens in its Delegated Proof of Stake (PoS) staking system. Emissions are automatically placed in the staked pool inside each validator’s validator component, and thus the rewards accrue to the holders of the Liquid Stake Unit (LSU) tokens associated with that validator, which represent a % claim on the XRD staked in that underlying pool 

Emissions tokens are distributed at the end of a period of time called an epoch.
