That's sort of a small-scale Ponzi scheme kept running by keeping money
in the system.  They pay out 1% of project pool funds per commit, retain
small payouts and return them into the "project pool" after a while.

So except for large payments and/or few main contributors of fast-moving
projects with lots of commits, a large part of the contributions stays
stuck in the system.  In particular, it is no incentive for
new/occasional contributors as they never receive a payout unless the
system is inundanted with donations.
