What is MANA?
MANA is created through the staking of AETH. It is the crypto fuel that powers the AKASHA ecosystem, and required for the various interactions within the AKASHA DApp such as publishing, commenting, voting, and more.
MANA is regenerated every 24 hours, with unused MANA from the previous round being lost. Artifacts created by burning MANA can generate ESSENCE from the upvotes of other users.
