PAL Network: Supernodes Incentive Structure 2.0

Mar 31, 2019 · 4 min read

Dear PAL community members,

It has been a quarter since we launched the PAL Mainnet. PAL holders have been running Supernodes for rewards based on what was shared last year in ‘Deep-Diving into the Bluepaper Incentives for Supernodes and Masternodes’.

Nodes Incentive for Q1 2019

PAL Network will be distributing the incentive to all qualified Supernodes for the month of January, February and March 2019.

A snapshot of all Supernodes and their processed transactions will be taken on 31st March 2019 23:59:59 (SGT). After which, the incentives will be calculated and distributed over the first week of April.

Please ensure that your Supernode Wallet address continues to hold the minimum stake amount of 100,000 PAL during the distribution period in order to receive the incentive.

Incentive breakdown

Incentive pool allocated for year 2019: 100,000,000 PAL

Incentive pool allocated for each month:
100,000,000 PAL / 12 months = 8,333,333 PAL

Masternodes and Supernodes should expect an average annual ROI of 144.7% in the first quarter.

Updated Calculation (to kick in from Q2 2019 onwards)

We took into consideration some feedback received from community members and we will implement revisions to our Supernode incentive structure.

NOTE: There will be no changes to the transaction fees and PAL incentive pool. The main revision will be the change in the calculation of incentive rewards for fairness.

The revised calculation of rewards earned by Supernodes will be based on the number of transactions successfully completed, while Masternodes’ incentive will remain unchanged.

For example, in the month of X:

Total allocation for Masternodes: 6,887.05 x 210 = 1,446,280.5 PAL

Total allocation for Supernodes: 8,333,333 - 1,446,280.5 = 6,887,052.5 PAL

Masternode Incentive

Incentive calculation for Masternode remain unchanged.

Each Masternode will evenly share the allocation for 210 Nodes:
1,446,280.5 / 21 = 68,870.5 PAL

Supernode Incentive

Every 20th transaction processed = 10% additional incentive (capped at 50%)

Simply put, if Supernode A processed 40 transactions this month, Supernode A will receive 20% more incentive than Supernodes that processed between 1 to 19 transactions.

Bonus table

Calculation for the incentive will be:

To calculate base payout amount:

500x + 250(1.1x) + 150(1.2x) + 70(1.3x) + 20(1.4x) + 10(1.5x) = 6,887,052.5

500x + 275x + 180x + 91x + 28x + 15x = 6,887,052.5

1,089x = 6,887,052.5

x = 6,324.19 PAL

Supernode A has completed 6 transactions:

1 to 19 = x = 6,324.19 PAL

Supernode B has completed 45 transactions:

40 to 59 = 1.2x = 7,589.02 PAL

Supernode C has completed 120 transactions:

100 or more = 1.5x = 9,486.28 PAL

Our subsequent wallet update will include projected incentive for running supernodes.
