Supporting smaller farmers over time

I’m new to chia and crypto in general.

I was hoping someone could explain to me why in crypto pooling seems to be the main tool used to spread rewards among smaller participants instead of the protocol just using more granular rewards?

Like for instance, in chia why would they not just increase the frequency of rewards and reduce the actual amount of the reward as the netspace grows? Is there some technical reason that this does not work?

I would think the target block rate was set with network performance and scale in mind in addition to reward distribution.

The process in which rewards are gained is also the process in which transactions are recorded.

I agree, If pools can do it, why not the crypto itself?
