I’m a fairly new SNO and I opted in for Layer 2 payouts via zksync earlier this month.
Reading recent posts and topics here in the forum, I’m aware that the topic of payouts has been highly debated since the surge of Ethereum transaction fees).
Now, since L2 payouts have been implemented, I was wondering if there was a way to force / request an immediate payout for my undistributed earnings? Obviously I would be willing to pay the L2 transaction fees (Storj → my wallet).
If this is not yet possible, i think this really should be an option. My reasoning is, that I would like to take the market risk for my earnings.
I don’t know what percentage of tardigrade customers pay their bills via STORJ tokens and I don’t know how Storj Labs Inc. decides on what to do whith those tokens. I can only assume, that the company has some kind of “investment” strategy for their holdings.
Is there a scenario in which SNOs would be able to take more market risk? E.g. request a daily payout (and pay for fees themselves)?
Obviously a lot of SNOs are unhappy about their earnings being withheld while the token price surged 150% over the last week. I understand, that it would be the other way round if the token price dropped 70% over the last week. But still I think, that SNOs should be given more control over their payment schedule.
If this is not possible, what would be the reason for withholding payments, even when a SNO is willing to pay the transaction fees?
Forgive me, if this hase already been answered somewhere…
