May 6, 2024, April payouts complete

Hello! Payouts for the completed month of April are done.

Layer 1

For layer 1 payments, we paid 3,306 unique wallet addresses! There is no specific minimum payment threshold but it appears that for standard payouts, the pipeline was able to pay out for people who earned $3.62 or more. Hooray low gas fees this month!


For zkSync Legacy/Lite payments, we paid 762 unique wallet addresses. Thanks to everyone who helped us keep fees low by adopting zkSync! As a reminder, zkSync Era and Legacy adopters receive a 3% bonus.

For zkSync Era payments, we paid 266 unique wallet addresses. This is once again the most yet, and thank you for volunteering to help us try this new technology! Like zkSync Legacy/Lite, zkSync Era adopters received a 3% bonus. Note that zkSync payments of both kinds are now also subject to a minimum payout threshold. The pipeline paid any zkSync transaction of $0.22 or more.

Two months ago, we said that we intended to disable support for the deprecated zkSync Lite/Legacy and only support zkSync Era going forward now, but we received a lot of feedback. While zkSync Era has many improvements over zkSync Lite, there aren’t as many liquidity pools on zkSync Era yet, and so thanks to your feedback, we are waiting for more maturity on zkSync Era’s ecosystem before we disable zkSync Lite.

If you want to start using zkSync Era, you can do so by modifying your wallet features configuration. The wallet features value is an ordered list and can include multiple values. Here is how you would specify preferring zkSync Era to zkSync Lite/Legacy, and zkSync Lite/Legacy to layer 1 in your config file:

operator.wallet-features: ["zksync-era", "zksync"]

And here is how you would specify it on the command line:


Naturally, you can remove zksync from the comma-separated list if you only want zksync-era.

zkSync Era support in Storj Satellite reminder

As a reminder from last month, if you’ve been waiting, we now support paying your Storj account (on,, or via zkSync Era! Note that we did not and do not intend to add support for zkSync Lite, so be careful of the distinction. Nonetheless, you can now use your storage node earnings to pay your Storj bill if you have one via zkSync Era.
