Satellite info (Address, ID, Blobs folder, Hex)

I noticed one of my responses in an old topic being linked to quite frequently listing this info. I figured it might be a good idea to post it in an easier to find place where I can also keep it up to date.

Community satellites program (unpaid for now)

Listed on:
These satellites are part of the Storj Community Satellite Pilot Program and won’t be paid for now. This program is used to test the rollout of community satellite functionality. Payout status might change in the future. Some satellites might offer other features like node monitoring and may not necessarily store data. Node software isn’t yet optimized to deal with different payout schemes for different satellites. Displayed information on node dashboards may be incorrect or incoherent when mixed with paid satellites. More info here: Announcing Community Satellite Pilot Program

Satellite Address:
Unpaid satellite to help with monitoring, push notifications & more. Doesn’t store any data.

Other community satellites (might be paid, see description)

Not (yet) listed on:
Anyone can start a community satellite and determine whether they pay operators or not and how they pay operators. Some satellites might offer other features like node monitoring and may not necessarily store data. Use caution when adding untrusted satellites to production nodes. Node software isn’t yet optimized to deal with different payout schemes for different satellites. Displayed information on node dashboards may be incorrect or incoherent when mixed with paid satellites or combining different payout schemes.

Decommissioned satellites

Satellite Address: (decommissioned)
Satellite ID: 118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW
Sat.ID hex: 004AE89E970E703DF42BA4AB1416A3B30B7E1D8E14AA0E558F7EE26800000000
Blobs Folder: abforhuxbzyd35blusvrifvdwmfx4hmocsva4vmpp3rgqaaaaaaa
Trust Lists: Decommissioned


Satellite Address: Address where the satellite is (or was) hosted
Satellite ID: ID that shows up in the logs and on the dashboard to point to this satellite
Sat.ID hex: Hex representation of the satellite ID. Useful when querying the node databases in sqlite using the hex() function. (Mostly selfish as I use this for the earnings calculator)
Blobs Folder: Folder inside blobs or trash where this satellites customer data is stored. Useful to find specific pieces that may trigger errors in logs for example. Or removing data for exited/disqualified satellites (please use caution!).


@Alexey please make this a Wiki, so it can be edited indefinitely :slight_smile:

I just did that myself :slight_smile:

Though it would be nice if I (or someone else) could edit this post to link here instead. So old links would still be directed to this more complete and up to date list.

I made it wiki too, you can now edit it


Thanks @Alexey, I edited the original message to point here!

Thanks for the addition @elek! I cleaned up the formatting a bit. Do you happen to know the name of the blobs folder? I haven’t used this sat myself yet, so can’t easily look it up.

Sure, I just added the blob folder.

BTW, I checked the code, and the folder name is just the base32 + lower case version of the hex (without === padding):

Can be calculated (for example) by:

1 Like

Ahh thanks, that’s very good to know! Do you also happen to know an easy way to convert the satellite ID to either of these?

Btw, I was expecting this one to be listed on
Since that is not (yet) the case I figured I would clarify that. We can move it over once it’s listed there. I might change the way this is displayed when more trust lists start making the rounds as it would make sense to simply list the trust lists a community sat is on when that happens.

Side note: I’ll give your sat a try on my test node soon. I’m still a little bit hesitant to add community sats to my prod nodes as there are still some issues when satellites disappear. (we’re still dealing with errors in the logs from the decommissioned stefan benten sat for example)

@elek: It’s listed now

I switched it to the appropriate place!

Sure, just use a base58 decoder which can decode hex. For example this one:

Choose decode and Treat Output as HEX. My nodeID (1NusSk8HjWppghiWvofEBDqryDaxiALPah8EyRxXWdNkwXg7ai) can be decoded to 0031c0baa220ceabe3057a9f7ab3a6b71edc2480d63e6a3bd5ba750fca31db560064dcf973

The first byte (00) is a version marker (always 00 as of now), the last 4 bytes (64dcf973) is a checksum. Remaining is the same as the hex, shared above.
