Q & A

Q: Why did I deploy nodes, but I didn’t get rewards?

A: Please check in the telemetry page if your node was remarked (telegram username + BSC address) (so far, some nodes are not remarked, unable to count rewards). Observe the telemetry page to see if there are circumstances to be offline. If there is an offline record, then the reward will be discounted.

Q: Why haven’t I received a 200ARES/ per day reward even if I have already become a validator node?

A: Please make sure that you have set on-chain identity on gladios (Twitter name + telegram username); this will allow us to access your relevant info, including wallet address. Otherwise, the reward can not be counted.

Q: Why do I always wait even if I already applied to become validator nodes?

A: You haven’t been reviewed by tech. Committee. There is an error in configuring data sources; for a detailed solution, please reach out to the node miners group (Ares Protocol Node Miner) to ask for help from professionals.
