During payouts the STORJ value fluctuated quite a bit. As a result etherscans estimates were all over the place. I used 0.14 instead, since that was what it was actually hovering around during these payouts. Unfortunately I can’t be exact without the exchange rate used for the actual transaction. I kindly ask to include this in the databases with a future update.
Let’s start with held amount payouts. It looks like this confirms what I noticed earlier and the returns for held amount actually happen in month 16, not in 15. us-central-1 paid out the held amount in month 16 and stefan-benten in month 15 did not.
Next up, Saltlake payout is higher than expected. This includes compensation from missed payout last month.
So, last month I missed 1.96 in payouts. But to make it complicated a different held back percentage applies this month and there was a surge payout last month. This month I got 2.63 more than expected.
My guess is that surge is not applied to this correction (Which… I don’t care, just want to know what happened) and 50% held back is applied (instead of 75% last month). Based on last months numbers that should be 4.90*50%=2.45. Close enough.
I was lucky enough that this node still had all separate payouts this month. But you can see how doing these checks would be much more complicated without that. Please include exchange rate and STORJ amounts in the dashboard (and API/node databases), so we have a complete picture.
I’ve started 2 additional nodes during May, but they don’t have significant enough income to warrant a deep dive. Additionally, most of their payouts were actually merged into a single payout, so can’t really do these exact checks.
Only one significant “issue”. Payout of 50% held back amount is happening with the payouts of month 16 instead of 15
Please include exchange rate and STORJ amounts on the dashboard, API and node databases
Thank you for doing this work to simply the SNO’s overview of the payouts…
I totally agree that this process in being able to manually verify the payment data from logged data from node or otherwise… is a critical point both for good measure / transparency / trust
all in all it all boils down to (TBm + Egress)*surge = payout
i wouldn’t want to dig through it all, but would be very nice if my external logs easily could also verify the node numbers and payouts… which is why i started logging it … or i did and then i broke my OS and didn’t get it finished yet… ofc right now i’m getting like 4$ payouts… so difficult to really feel cheated out of anything lol
the 15 vs 16 is just a matter of how you count… if its after 15 months or if you count 0 then you will end up at 16 ;D
Since the entire held back system starts counting at 1 for the three held back periods (1-3, 4-6, 7-9), I’m going to assume the payout should follow that same counting system. Btw, after 1.6.3 the web dashboard counts months in the exact same way the earnings calculator does. So yeah, what you’re saying may be the reason the satellites are doing it wrong, but it’s still wrong. Though, I think you were joking here anyway.
stuff gets complicated real fast… lol but yeah i really should try to use my time better…
been working on a nice post about HA setups…been like 95% done for like 12 days now… tsk tsk… took me long enough also…
