Payout feedback

As far as I know we will communicate that. It was a last minute decision and the only option we had was pay it or hold on.

Awesome! I edited the above post to include the surge payout. It seems spot on. Only europe-west-1 seems to be even a little more generous.

Is it? I read surge payout as = Not enough paying customers (yet). :confounded:

I received 86.026423 Storj for my first month. I was expecting a few cents: D Great! Thank you!

You can be as pessimistic as you want… but getting paid for 2.5x as much as the service you actually provided is a good thing.

How many payments did you get? It should be 10 for 2 nodes. There was no announcement that the payments have been completed yet.

After subtracting the held amount you should receive ~ 270 STORJ with the surge payment of 2.5x. Last month’s payment included payment of the last week of January and January was an exceptional good month with a lot of testing going on. Otherwise you would have not received 660 STORJ with the stats you provided.

I recieved alot more then expected not complaining at all. Thank you storj

You must use same address for all nodes so there should be total 5 payments (1 for each satellite) irrespective of the number of nodes that SNO runs.

I got 17 different payments

Are you using same ETH address in all nodes ?

Yes I am. Same one since forever.

This changed. Check the announcements

You are correct. Must have missed that post.

A link would be helpful. I can’t find it.

Yes I got 10 payouts

I wanted to wait until all satellites had reported back paystub data before posting this.

All seem great with small fluctuations that can easily be explained by token value changes. I used the etherscan feature to get value at time of transfer, which isn’t 100% correct.

Except saltlake seems a little low
I’m definitely not complaining, just trying to find out why.

My first instinct was maybe some discrepancy in the stored data calculation as I had seen small differences there before.
So I compared the paystub data to storage usage data from the node.

That’s definitely not it.

Next check, do I get $1.50 per TB.

Looks like Storj uses the average of 730 hours per month despite April having only 720 hours. Fair enough, that’ll even out over time and that number is close enough to 1.50 for me. So that’s not it either.

Let’s move on to bandwidth. Normal egress traffic, lets compare GB downloaded from my node between paystub and bandwidth usage in the nodes db.


Hey… that doesn’t look right? The paystub seems to have a significantly smaller amount.
Did I do something wrong here?
A 0.245TB difference is 4.90 USD, with 160% surge 7.84 USD. 25% paid out would be 1.96 USD.

Add that to the 1.68 USD that was paid out and you get 3.64 USD. Close enough to the initial calculation.

and interval_start < '2020-05-01 00:00:00+00:00'

Edit: My node ID in case someone wants to look into it:
12aYrWFmJqrmhN3zgkvANBTsj2DdLwf2aZC8T5t7CrNazHahKXW
I don’t mean to say you have to look into it for my node specifically, but if it’s indicative of larger problems this example might help.

I think we have incorrect data on the satellite side.
I opened dashboard…

Looks like I should send payout for Stoj Lab :smiley:

That’s due to a different issue. Held back amount is shown including surge, while everything else is shown without. Held back without surge would be 2.19 for you, which is roughly 75% of the total.
