No rewards raspberry

I use a raspberry since 18th ofApril.
Didn’t get any rewards since that moment.
Is this normal?
I don’t see any problems if I look in Nstatus.
I made it with fast deploy

Neither do I, if the nodes are the foundations of the project, I do not understand that they give so little or no reward.

I had some virtual google cloud servers and they produced rewards.

Is it profitable, paying google servers?

I tried it with demo 1 free month.
So i don’t know.
I got rewards

It highly depends on your home Internet connection, e.g. speed and latency to the Internet backbone. I have AT&T fiber 1Gbps to home, and have very low latency to US Internet backbone, and my Raspberry Pi at home yields similar to my VPS nodes over long period of time (2 years).

But individual home node will vary a lot, and will be lower than VPS if the bandwidth is lower and latency is higher than VPS.

I have fiber 200/200
What number is low latency?
I can’t change latency I think?

Same here. I’ve been running a NKN node for about 2 months now, with 24/7 uptime besides downtime to upgrade the docker container. No rewards. This really is rather annoying and makes me a lot less likely to invest in more nodes. I have a 1000/1000 mbit fiber connection with generally really low latency. I’m not sure how to check the latency to a specific backbone but pinging or results in an average ping of 5ms. I’m in fairly close proximity to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, for what it’s worth.

They block “us” the Dutch people I think :slight_smile:

The best tool to check, is You can find out the latency to all your NKN neighbors, as well as relays per hour.

Ah okay!

107979.81 relays / h

912 ms avg
12 ms min
9924 ms max

Is this any good? Average of 912ms seems a bit high to me, but not sure what’s okay.

@wesley2004 Well it does feel like we somehow have a disadvantage in Europe! Know several people with the same issues as we currently experience.

I don’t think nodes in Europe are at disadvantage. Here is one of my personal nodes in Germany, and its numbers are in the same ball park as yours. And this node is the top 5 (out of my 15 nodes in 4 continents) in terms of messages relayed.

Same here. I’ve been running the node on my Raspberry since yesterday. Also, I seem to need to transfer some NKN to my new wallet to begin mining. Do you know where can I buy NKN, please?


You can get NKN mainnet tokens from Upbit.

Or if you have NKN ERC-20 tokens, you can swap them into NKN Mainnet
