- NDS-A now paid by script – every 10 hours
The BMF (BURST Marketing Fund) is paying now the NDS-Award (Networtk-Distribution-Strengthen) every 10 hours to the node operators with valid BURST- addresses, newest BRS version (current BRS 2.4.2) and was seen with the payment of the reward. The NDS-A will be paid from the BMF NDS-A Distributor account.The crawler from https://explorer.burstcoin.network/ is used to identify the valid nodes for the NDS-A.The interval is setup as a subscription from the BMF account with 110 BURST every 10 hours. 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 BAT developer Zoh! To participate in the NDS-A, you only need to operate a full-node with the current BRS version 2.4.2 and set your P2P.myPlatform to your BURST account. In your BRS config file set “P2P.shareMyAddress = yes”.Your node is connectable tcp/8123 “P2P.Port = 8123” Download the Qbundle 2.5.3 here and read the manual for the installation.
