SINOVATE distributes first HODL Coin Offering rewards

SINOVATE has distributed the first rewards to participants of the SINOVATE HODL Coin Offering (HCO). As 2020 was a difficult year for many with the on-going COVID-19 global pandemic, SINOVATE wanted to thank all HCO participants at the earliest possible opportunity for their trust, providing peace of mind and confidence that their commitment to the campaign will be fully rewarded.

As of 31.12.2020 around 50% of the first rewards have been sent, with the remainder being paid after block 604, 000. All other rewards will be received in monthly intervals for 12 months in total. The amount of SIN received per interval depends on your earning option of choice. Click here for further details.

Entries for the HCO marketing campaign will officially close on 05.02.2021. Join the SINOVATE HODL Coin Offering today for additional passive income possibilities and watch your earnings grow.

SINOVATE Community Governance Proposal

Prior to announcing our 2021 roadmap, SINOVATE is conducting a community governance proposal to decrease the total number and associated rewards for upcoming BIG and MID Deterministic Infinity Nodes. There are currently almost 400 BIG and MID nodes, with 1752 SIN and 838 SIN received by BIG and MID SIN Nodes. The purpose of this community vote is to propose the reduction of BIG rewards to 1250 SIN and MID rewards to 650 SIN, bringing these tiers close to 300 nodes each.

Click here for the reasons for this proposal and all that it entails. As always, regardless of the outcome, SINOVATE will only proceed as the majority decides. Your vote counts. Help to shape our future, and join us on our journey to create greater equality, wealth, and world-class decentralized cloud data storage for all.

FLITS Hosted Service: Official SINOVATE Statement

As you may be aware prior to the SINOVATE AURORA Mainnet in November, the Flits project encountered an issue in setting up infinity nodes on their application. This error resulted in the loss of all infinity nodes hosted on Flits. SINOVATE endeavored to work with the Flits team to find a solution so that impacted node owners would be fully reimbursed but to no avail.

Negotiations failed between SINOVATE and Flits; both companies decided to initiate independent compensation plans. SINOVATE aims to support as many affected members as possible, while also encouraging these members to use Flits’ compensation plan to ensure that minimal losses are incurred. If you have been impacted by this issue, please fill out this form carefully, as we will use this information to send your compensation. Please only use the original Collateral Node Address, as we will not forward any compensation without this.

As soon as we receive the full list of impacted nodes the forms will be processed. Flits users will be compensated by block 866,800 as described here. Please ensure that all information provided is correct. This form will close on 01.03.2021. Please share the form with other Flits users. Thank you for your fantastic support.
