The issues around corrupted orders brought it to the surface that orders expire after 48 hrs.
Meaning failure to detect issues with sending of orders result in loss for the SNO.
Why is this this way? From what I understand the orders are just a kind of receipt that the node has performed the requested work and can get paid. From my understanding this means that a customer who has downloaded a file has received the required parts from that node and will get billed for it. Thus, Storj gets paid but refuses to pay the node if the order is older than 48 hrs?
Or maybe I am wrong with that assumption? Why the need for expiring the order despite the node has completed his task?
