Rewards for DHT stakers will be paid in DHT. Overall DHT rewards are distributed as follow:
DHT staking: 25k DHT per week
Performance Mining: 35k DHT per week
Protocol Treasury: Amount and token decided via vote per quarter
DHT distributed via staking and performance mining is done by increasing the circulating supply of DHT (inflation). Tokens distributed via the Protocol Treasury are done by liquidating a portion of the fees the protocol captures (protocol revenue).
