So I didn’t realize this from before, But those tokes weren’t arbitrarily minted like your Implying. Their his own rewards that Zack just never claimed, that was the flash his wallet earned from pooling XIO/ETH. In the same way that we all earned flash out the gate for holding/pooling XIO.
What is a little bit disconcerting is the fact that we were originally told that these were never going to be touched, and now all the sudden they were claimed. There should have most definitely been a vote before that, or at least a bit more clarity. But honestly dumping all of them into the index in my opinion is not a bad thing.
