[themify_box color=”light-gray”]UPDATE: Node Reward Payout Delay Week of 19 Nov 2018[/themify_box]
Horizen Secure Node and Super Node block reward payouts will be delayed due to the secure node server migration previously announced.
Secure and Super Node reward payouts will take place on Tuesday 20 Nov 2018 and will include accrued rewards (7 days) plus an additional day (a total of 8 days).
Block reward distribution for the week of 26 November 2018 will include accrued rewards for a 6-day period to take into account the additional day included in the previous block reward distribution cycle. Payouts will be processed on their regular schedule on Monday of that week.
Attention all secure node operators:
The Horizen engineering team upgraded the SECURE NODE servers and tracker system from 17 Nov 3pm UTC to 18 Nov 11pm UTC in an effort to continuously improve our systems in operations.[themify_box color=”light-gray”]This notice is ONLY applicable to the SECURE NODE system.[/themify_box]
Actions for Secure Node Operators:
- No actions are expected for Secure Node operators
- If required, we will communicate additional actions/instructions
- Watch for special email updates
Tracking Servers Migration (from 17 Nov 3pm UTC to 18 Nov 2018 11pm UTC)
- Challenges suspended
- Generation of payment records suspended until after the migration
- No payments will be missed
- Email alerts suspended
- Exceptions and downtimes to be excluded from earnings
- Expect periods of unavailability
- Expect multiple failovers and reconnects
Effect on Earnings
- There will be no missed block reward due to the migration.
- Block reward distribution will be delayed and executed on 20 November, and will include rewards for 8 days.
- 26 November block reward distribution will only include block rewards accumulated for 6 days.
Why this migration occurred:
The server migration was required as we transitioned to a new server service provider. The change ensures the reliability of our network and gives us additional room to grow. This is an interim step until we move our node tracker on-chain!
We appreciate your patience and thank you for contributing to privacy and decentralization!
