After ~18 million coins, the last pre-tail emission block will be mined. After this, all blocks mined will have a block reward of 0.6 Monero.

Who will receive this tail emission?

The miners who mine the blocks.

  • No. Only the miners will get any block rewards. Pool operators only get paid from the fees they charge for miners using their pool – samwellj Apr 19 '17 at 2:39

    samwellj - technically you have that backwards. Pool operators receive the block rewards for blocks their pools mine, and then pay out shares to the miners, who are essentially employees of the pools. – bigreddmachine Apr 19 '17 at 4:26
