The first payout of forging rewards has now taken place! This was a weekly payout for everybody in order to allow for time to thoroughly test the payout system.
Going forward, voter rewards will be paid (minus Ark’s 0.1 Ѧ transaction fee) daily for any voter who has earned at least 3 Ѧ in rewards and weekly for any voter who has accumulated at least 0.3 Ѧ. This is so big voters get their payouts more regularly while protecting those with smaller wallets from getting hit with daily fees.
Voter reward sharing payouts are scheduled to take place at 08:00 UTC. Prize payouts occur at 00:00 UTC.
