Storage node operators are continuously rated, and higher performance, lower latency systems will receive more opportunities to serve files, and therefore more income.
Storage node operators earn a percentage of the total pay dStor earns each month based on the pro rata amount of data seeds they store and bandwidth they deliver to end users.
During the beta period, developers pay for storage via US dollar invoices and storage node operators are paid by smart contract in TLOS tokens on the Telos blockchain.
Low minimum requirements:
- 4TB storage (dedicated)
- 50 Mbps up bandwidth (dedicated)
- i3 processor or better
- 8GB RAM or better (needn't be ECC)
