In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards are only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” rewards which are a total payout of an equal amount of nearly 53M IOST tokens. 22 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1.2 million IOST each.
Final Nodes and Rewards Per Tier
All contribution rewards and ‘share of votes’ rewards for the Q3 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each nodes account and their voters accounts (50% share) by the end of November.
At 21:30 31st October (GMT+8), ICAC and IOST will hold a meeting for all nodes worldwide to summarize the Q3 contribution rewards system, presentation from high ranking nodes on their contributions and open feedback and discussion session for all nodes.
Please contact us with a brief script if you want to join the meeting.
Final Node Tier Rankings
Following on from the release of initial Node’s Q3 contribution results and rankings and conclusion of the dispute period , all results, rankings and rewards are now finalized for Q3 and listed below (in no particular order).
Building the IOST Node Ecosystem
Following the close of Q3, the Foundation looks forward to a successful Q4 and increased contribution from Nodes as well as new nodes joining the ecosystem.
With excellent staking rewards in play for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have.
With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to highly incentivise nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.
IOST is also working on an update of our evaluation system as during the evaluation we have realized that the current category system cannot cover all contributions our partner nodes are doing for IOST. Stay tuned!
