Bend and BGT Rewards

What Is BGT?

Berachain Governance Token $BGT is the native governance token that is typically rewarded to direct delegators and specific liquidity providers (LPs), through pools, when a validator proposes a new block, is awarded some $BGT, and distributes that $BGT to specific delegators and liquidity pools.

$BGT is non-transferable, can only be awarded through validators, can be staked with validators, used in governance proposals, and can be burned for $BERA - the native Berachain gas token.
