In total, close to 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards are only half of the quarterly rewards 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 Q4 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each node's account and their voters' accounts (50% share) by the end of February.
ICAC and IOST will hold a meeting at 21:00, Jan 22, GMT+8, for all nodes worldwide to summarize the 2019 Q4 contribution system, and explain IOST’s 2020 roadmap. Representatives from the IOS Foundation will attend the conference and we welcome everyone’s participation.
Final Node Tier Rankings
Following on from the release of initial Node’s Q4 contribution results and rankings and conclusion of the dispute period, all results, rankings and rewards are now finalized for Q4 and listed below (in no particular order).
Building the IOST Node Ecosystem
Following the close of 2019, the Foundation looks forward to a successful new year 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 incentivize nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.
