Upon the fork of v20, Masternodes will be paid 60% of the emitted supply, and 50% of that will be paid to the Evonode class, currently 72 nodes and the other 50% will be paid to regular nodes.

**It is important to note that funds for Evnodes will start going into the Asset Pool upon the hard fork of v20 regardless whether there are enough Evonodes to start Platform or not.**

Looking at 2 recently past blocks with only a coinbase TX, we determine the current MN+Miner emission to be

**2.30967232**Dash.

Generation in block 1939268

2.30967232

Generation in block 1939233

2.30967232

This Dash is 90% of the emission, so 100% =

**2.566302**5777777777777777777777778 Dash.

Since of that 100%, 60% will now be going to the Masternodes, we get 60% =

**1.5397815466**666666666666666666667 Dash for the Masternodes.

There are

**3456**Regular ENABLED masternodes today and there are

**72**EvoNodes that are ENABLED today as well. It is important to note that ALL masternodes, both Evo and Regular get paid once according to the L1 Core payment queue, thus the L1 payment queue will be 3456 + 72 =

**3528**blocks longs, since one MN is paid per block.

Since EvoNodes will get one payment from core each cycle, to work out how much Dash needs to enter the Asset Pool, we use this equation.

50% - 50% / 4 =

**37.5**%

So, for each block, 62.5% (of the previous 60%) goes to paying the L1 queue, while 37.5% is put aside and goes into the Asset Pool.

ie

62.5% of 60% (above) =

**0.962363466**66666666666666666666667.

37.5% of 60% (above) =

**0.57741808**.

So, to be clear, the

**0.962363466**is what you will see Masternodes getting paid on the block explorer, the queue length will be 3528 blocks long, or about

**6.4**days long. There are 200288 blocks per year, so a regular masternode will earn about 200288 / 3528 =

**56.77**0975056689342403628117913832 payments per year at about

**0.962363466**Dash per payment which gives them a total of

**54.6343123616**02418745275888132653 Dash earned a year or about

**% APY.**

__5.46__Regular MN APY based on current MN counts would be:

**% a year.**

__5.46__An Evnode gets the same reward as a Regular MN, after all, they are paid in the L1 queue just the same as any other Masternode, however, they also get paid their share of the Asset Pool which is paid once every Epoch. An Evonode gets paid in proportion to how many blocks it proposes to the network, a faster Evonode, eg better hardware will propose blocks faster and thus win the race, this is completely different to how Regular MNs work. However, assuming that all Evonodes are paid equally, we can figure out how much they will be paid.

There are 72 Evonodes, each block

**0.57741808**Dash goes into the asset pool, thus an Evnode earns.

(0.57741808 / 72 * 200288) + 54.634312361602418745275888132653 =

**1660.8830957**927135298563869992438 Dash a year.

That is 1660 Dash for Evonode share of the Asset Pool, plus the Dash a regular node earns, this is 1660.8830957927135298563869992438 / 4000 * 100% =

**41.522**077394817838246409674981095%

Therefore an EvoNode will start getting paid

**% a year.**

__41.52__from day one of the v20 hardfork.

So, what can you do about this?

- You can combine your 1k Regular MNs into Evonodes now, they are cheaper to host (since only one VPS is required for each) and easier to maintain. Refer to my guide on how to create an Evnode in v19 https://www.dash.org/forum/index.php?threads/how-to-create-a-no-fuss-evo-node-in-v19.53899/
- If you have 3 Masternodes, you can buy the fourth one today, we have a discount on Dash right now, only $27k for a 1000 bagger.

- If you have < than 1000 Dash, you can join Crowdnode, they have already converted over some of their regular MNs to 14 Evonodes and members of crowdnode stand to make a killing when the new payment cycle rolls in.

As more people create EvnoNodes, the payment queue is decreased by 3 nodes and thus the APY increases for the Regular MN holders.

Now is a great time to create your Evnodes to ensure you are first in line at the trough for those juicy payments, because they may not last when people see what a killing EMNOs are making.
