Network Distribution Strengthen-Award
A reward for full-node operators
On December 23rd, 2018 the BURST Marketing Fund (BMF) started distributing an award to all full-node operators of the Burst network. It was called the Network Distribution Strengthen Award (NDS-A) and was paid initially on a weekly basis to all valid nodes, but currently it is paid daily. Fully automated, the payments are done by script from the BMF-NDS-A-Distributor acount. The main purpose of the NDS-A is to give a bonus to full-node operators for keeping up the Burst network and maintaining their node(s) with the newest code.
How to join the NDS-A
To participate in the NDS-A, you only need to operate a full-node with the current BRS version (see the Burst Nodes & Wallets page) and check your configuration file for the following settings:
- Set P2P.myPlatform to your BURST account.
- Set P2P.shareMyAddress = yes
- Set”P2P.Port = 8123″
The NDS-A will be paid to your BURST account set under the P2P.myPlatform setting in your configuration. You can check if your node meets all the NDS-A requirements by visiting this Burst-Explorer page.
Distribution and Funding
The payment is fully automated in that way that everyone can send BURST to BMF NDS-A Distributor to distribute the BURST to the node operators. This script was provided by developer Zoh! The BMF is sending every 10 hours an BURST-Amount to the BMF NDS-A Distributor which will distribute the BURSTs alonge the valid node operators. If your node is online while the distribution and fullfils the requirements, you will auomatically receive your payment. Your latency should be less than 1000ms.
