If your RAC is above 250, you will need to hold BiblePay coins in your wallet to get your daily rewards

To get the max amount of rewards:
If you are on "Team BiblePay", you need (RAC ^ 1.3) coins
If you are not on "Team BiblePay", you need (RAC ^ 1.6) coins

Staking Example:
- RAC (Recent Average Credit): 1000
- In Team BiblePay: 7944 BBP coins
- Not Team BiblePay: 63096 BBP coins

NOTE: Technically you need coin*age, coins multiplied by how many days they haven't moved
