This month’s payments are still on track to be made before the 15th of the month, but this month will be a delightful surprise to many of you. It will have some unusually high payouts!
One of the satellites we used for load testing in the early days of the V3 network was the satellite.stefan-benten.de satellite. For the last couple of months, we have been moving a lot of these load tests over to other satellites as well as bringing on more customers which is what has been creating the majority of the load on the network recently.
With this being the case we have been working to transition satellite.stefan-benten.de into a new role where it will no longer be listed on tardigrade.io/trusted-satellites (stay tuned for more). Because of that, this month’s payouts will include the held amounts for all non DQ’ed nodes who were on that satellite, in addition to normal monthly usage for all other satellites.
Summary: if you stored data for satellite.stefan-benten.de and had a held amount accrued there, you will be getting it back this month in addition to normal payouts.
Thanks for being such a great operator network!
