Boscoin rewards calculator
Calculates expected number of rewards by operating a BOScoin node.
Note that this is speculation, since we don't know how many frozen units/nodes
will be until genesis. Also note that this script is not applying increasing
number of total supply. However, roughly saying, rewards will not be changed
while every node operators, frozen coin holders try to reinvest all their rewards.
Becasue rewards are distributed by shares.

initial_rewards: rewords at first year. 18 for confirmation rewards,
and 5400 for every 720 blocks for freezing rewards
decrease_rate: rewards decreases every once a year. 0.0632 for
confirmation rewards, 0.05 for freezing rewards
decrease_cycle: both confirmation and freezing rewards decrease
every 6310000 blocks. It's roughly a year.
