Month 2 update.
Some good news and Some bad news.
The payout for 01-Dec-2019 to 31-Dec-2019 was almost double that of November.
Received 33 StorJ tokens. (approx $3.3/-)
Now, for the unfortunate bad news, somewhere during the last weeks of december, the node got paused on all 3 satellites. Dropped a few emails to get some clarification. There is no way to reinstate the node if its paused. Will definitely lose out on the surge payments and have to wait longer for the audits to complete.
Here are few learnings.
- Double-check to make sure /etc/fstab has an entry (if you are using external harddisk as storage space).
- The dynamic DNS update need to be reliable, example - if you are using some sort of cloudflare dns update using ddclient or dyndns, double triple check to make sure the domain is accessible.
These are home user woes i suppose, wont be an issue for VPS storj nodes.
Not disheartened, still in it! Peace.
