SNO Payout Update starting 2/12/21

Thank you for the feedback. For me the most important aspect in potential opt-in to zkSync would be optimal and simple transition from current payout method (i am using MEW wallet) to zkSync with as minimum setup as possible.
On the side note, I dont mind minimum payout threshold with existing payment method too, as it stands now, but who knows what gas prices we will see in future.

It’s simple: install Metamask (or use a Brave browser) and import your MEW with the same secret phrase. Then connect to and you are ready to withdrawal or see your balance on L2.


I did all the steps. What do I further have to do to receive my STORJ into this L2 thing? :slight_smile:

Currently it is not possible to pay the transaction fees in STORJ. We are working on resolving that issue. In the meantime better calculate with the worst case fee (deposit ETH first). I have calculated the best and worst cost fee here: Test zkSync with TestSTORJ token

It is correct that you can call an emergency withdrawal if you don’t control the private keys. An emergency withdrawal comes with a significantly higher fee. Better make sure you own the private keys so that you can call a cheaper regular withdraw. There is an easy way to check that. Everyone can try to access their payout address in zkSync testnet. I am happy to send everyone testSTORJ tokens for practice.


@jocelyn honestly i don’t see why we have to get paid all the time and not just went we request a payout… seems silly to waste a lot of resources to move storj to a wallet if many or even just some of us let it sit for extended periods…

haven’t really gotten around to read up on the L2 solution, it sounds kinda interesting, if nothing else i want to understand it, so that i can understand how it will affect the rest of this economy, so i can take actions accordingly.

you guys could always migrate to the Cardano lol apparently thats going to be a thing in the near future.
supposely one can wrap eth tokens and move the value into the Cardano block chain…

duno to much about it, just sounded kinda interesting and wanted to mention it… supposedly they will have an option for no transaction fees it will just be lowest priority transactions on the network.
might not be a solution to the transaction fees right now… but it may very well be a future option worthy of consideration.

You can do it now - opt-in for zkSync and you will be able to claim your payout when you want. However, we still need to process those payouts to your address on L2 before that :slight_smile: .

Enable the zksync in the config file of the node:

why would i want that… i have yet to even move any storj… you guys are the one constantly shuffling tokens around like they are poker chips…

please do tell me why i want to pay larger fees to go back from an obscure new L2 blockchain, seems like i would just be paying for you guys to solve your problem of your own creation due to constant payouts.

this is not a solution, this is a bad patch at best, so that people can look at their wallets and feel they earned something from running a node for a short while…

but it does sure seem to be Storj’s 42 atm
we always talk of less points of failure, adding more blockchains to the blockchain solution also seems like moving in the wrong direction…

if it was that good a solution why don’t you just move us all over on it… :smiley:
feels like when one is agreeing to facebooks privacy policy or something…

we care about your data…

yeah but in a way i like facebook to care about my data lol…


zkSync is not a new blockchain.


I am sending the storj to my exchange. To avoid commissions from my portfolio to my exchange.

It says not to send L2 to the exchange.

Can you check how much the commissions cost when going from L2 to L1 and from L1 to the exchange?

I would not like to pay a large amount of commissions to withdraw a small part of the storj.

You don’t need 2 transactions for that. You can withdraw from L2 to the exchange directly in one transaction. More details about the fees you can find here: Test zkSync with TestSTORJ token

I am not shure my /Driveshare/StorjNode/config.yaml is used on Linux Debian in Docker mode. In this file are not this values i use in my docker run command. So do i have to insert this “operator.wallet-features: [“zksync”]” in this config.yaml or into my run-command? Exmpl. plz.?


You should add this string to your config.yaml, as a last line after all other for example.
The config file is used by the storagenode, just command line parameters have a precedence above values in the config file.

@jocelyn This is mainly off-topic, but I’d like to suggest something about dates when no specialized widget can be used (which is the case in topic titles):

It might be evident that “2/12/21” used in this post’s title means the 12th of Feb. 2012 for Americans, and also because we’re not in December 2021 yet, but keep in mind that the American way of writing dates (mm/dd/yyyy) is confusing for many countries that use “dd/mm/yyyy” (or other formats).
What about using a more technical but less error-prone way of writing dates like “2021/02/12” (or using ISO 8601: “2021-02-12” as suggested below by @baker)? :slight_smile:

(Within posts, the widget can be used: 2021-02-11T23:00:00Z)


If only there was some kind of standard for writing dates that everyone could follow.



I love the cat version :smiley:


Thanks for the nice words, really!
But unfortunately in my view they are old wine in new bottles … “We will” all over there but actually you are still holding our earnings.

“We appreciate all the feedback we’ve received and the patience.”
What about doing something that defuses the situation? To show you appreciate the feedback it would have been fair to pay the outstanding payments in times where the fees are lower for example (There has been a lot of in the past days). But by now, you are still sitting things out. So still only maybe a solution for the future and no progress in the stopped payments since 2 months.
Still very disappointed here.

Best wishes.

Presumably they could have paid a bit more than 200-ish SNOs by choosing a date where fees were lower, but that wouldn’t have been much more I believe considering this month’s fees:

(source: Ethereum Average Transaction Fee)

And these are ETH fees, ERC20 fees are even higher.
So… I don’t know, that still doesn’t solve the issue for 95% of SNOs.

:arrow_right: Hence the zkSync solution they’re actively working on.


I read everything and understood practically nothing. So, to receive payments, you need a wallet from zkSync (what is it, a coin or a network?), What is L1 and L2 is just not clear at all. We need a guide where he will explain step by step the principle of action and all the concepts. Sorry for bad english


This is a nice recommendation. Nothing more.
