Hello! Payouts for the completed month of January are complete.
For layer 1 payments, we paid 2,113 unique wallet addresses. As before, there is no specific minimum payment threshold but it appears the pipeline was able to pay out for people who earned $9 or more.
For zkSync payments, we paid 1,793 unique wallet addresses. Everyone who opted into zkSync got a 10% bonus! Copied from last month: zkSync 2.0 is on mainnet but in alpha and closed to users. Launching brand new distributed systems is hard work! We’re continuing to patiently and excitedly wait for Matter Labs’ efforts here. We are excited about zkSync 2.0 and intend to migrate once it makes sense to do so.
For Polygon payments, we paid 32 unique wallet addresses. We are intending to drop Polygon support once zkSync 2.0 support lands, considering zkSync 2.0 resolves the main issue with zkSync 1.0 that led to us exploring Polygon: registration fees.
Across all layers, we paid 3,938 unique addresses. As always, if you have more questions, please make sure you’ve read through our mega FAQ .
During the past month, there has been discussion about how useful it would be for SNOs to know the spot price in USD that their STORJ token was valued at at the time of transfer. Historical STORJ/USD prices are of course able to be looked up, but as a convenience it might be nice if Storj placed this value somewhere for the operators. We are looking into this but have not come up with a concrete plan yet.
The policies put in place regarding bonuses for nodes operated in Ukraine are still in place.
