Wow! What low gas prices this month!
We’ve just completed payouts for the month of May, following some of the new process rules outlined in this previous post: Feedback on Layer 2 Payouts. Here’s the summary:
We paid 2,635 unique wallet addresses on layer 1. All of these wallet addresses earned enough that the payment fee was 1/4th of the payout amount or less. There is no specific minimum payout threshold dollar amount this month because we’re moving towards doing it per transaction, but it was around $10.
We paid 865 unique wallet addresses on layer 2 via zkSync. As an incentive, once again we did not enforce minimum payment fees at all here, though we may do so in the future.
In keeping with the previous post linked above, we did not close out any terminal accounts. If you have a final balance less than about $10 this month and have not opted into zkSync, your options are to either opt into zkSync with your node, or let us hang on to this final balance for you in case fees drop even more.
As always, thanks for being a fantastic storage node operator community! We appreciate the input, feedback and collaboration to ensure the ecosystem works for customers, satellite operators, and storage nodes.
