What if a GENS pool gets saturated?

If a pool gets saturated you can’t delegate more ADA to it. You won’t earn any GENS rewards. As of now, pool saturation is at 68.4 million ADA.

How will GENS rewards be calculated?

The rewards will be both proportional to the amount delegated and the duration of the delegation. In other words, the more ADA you delegate and the longer you delegate the more you will earn GENS tokens.

What is the difference between the 100% and 50% GENS pool?

By delegating to the 100% pool, you will accumulate twice as many GENS tokens compared to the 50% pool. In the 50% pool you are only giving away 50% of your ADA staking reward and therefore accumulate only half of the possible GENS per epoch.
The last snapshot will be at the start of epoch 338.
Did the bonus rewards eligibility change?
No, the original epoch requirements apply. For example, you still need 28+ epochs with 500 ADA or more to qualify for the Diamond Hands NFT.
