Make sure your node isn’t nearly full. I’m actually currently seeing quite heavy upload traffic.
As for the payment. This month I believe they wanted to switch process. Yes the switch is to an automated process, but since it’s the first time, it’s not that strange that extra checks and perhaps quick fixes are needed. Don’t worry about it too much though, Storj has always paid and if something went wrong in the past they’ve paid more in cases where they didn’t know exactly anymore what the payout amount should have been.
You will be paid and you will be paid at least what you’ve earned. They’ve never deviated from that. I’m sure we’ll see payout any day now and if not, we’ll see an update before the first 2 weeks of the month are over.
