    Hello,
    I am looking for specific documentation on how frequently masternodes will receive payouts and the amount of the payouts. Also, is there a delay for first payout?
    What is the equation and where can one obtain the data?

    Thanks.

    Thanks splawik21, that URL is very helpful.
    Is the source available for this?
    Seems such a tool should be easier for new users to find.

    crowning is the magican here ;) He is pro developer of dash so the data is OK.

    For the source ask him.

    It's all self-made. Basically I get the data (block number, difficulty, etc.) from a normal dashd and compute the expected payout in a little shell-script using the same formula as the reference (C++) Dash-client. The exchange-rate is pulled and averaged from the top 5 exchanges, right now it's Poloniex, Exmo, BTC38, Bittrex and Livecoin.

    Since this script isn't stand-alone (it also gets data from a couple of other staticstic-scripts I've implemented, like the ones which create graphics like this one http://178.254.18.153/~pub/masternode_count.png) it wouldn't make sense to publish it.

    But if you want to code your own scripts/programs I can help if needed.

    Edit: and once I'm back home (I'm traveling right now) I can show you the relevant C++ coding places in the reference client if you can't find them yourself.

    Thanks, crowning.

    I think it would be helpful for newcomers if we had a clean, clear dashboard similar to yours which was easier to find.
    Have you seen https://ethstats.net/ for example?

    Even if some parts (like generating graphics) were removed, I think this would still be a valuable tool to open source or make available somehow.
    For example adding to https://www.dash.org or perhaps integrated into https://dashninja.pl/

    At the very least, we should figure out the payout period equation and add to someplace like https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/display/DOC/Masternode+payment+logic
