$HUGS as Contribution/Review Collateral

Every Contributor/Reviewer can stake $HUGS as Contributions/Review Collateral.
This mechanism gives a direct economic incentive to the Contributor/Reviewer to provide high-quality data. When providing low-quality data, the staked $HUGS tokens will be slashed.

$HUGS for Curators

Curators choosing to stake tokens signal to the network that a contribution has a great potential of generating secondary rewards. The curator receives a share of such rewards if the contribution is successful.
