How are the transactions distributed amongst masternodes?

Masternode Preference Scoring

In order to distribute the transactions, the system will calculate a Masternode Preference Scoring (MPS) each day, according to several conditions.

The scoring mechanism will prefer masternodes, which

  • reputation is higher (the date of the masternode registration is earlier),
  • possess more TFD licence tokens,
  • offer better CAL rate / transaction,
  • contract for a longer time,
  • maintain more masternodes.

The importance of the condition is descending from 1 to 5.

Distribution amongst masternode tiers

The transactions are distributed amongst tiers using these ratios

  • Steel (60 000 TFD) — 11%
  • Platinum (120 000 TFD) — 22%
  • Titanium (350 000 TFD) — 67%

Please note that these percentages are valid only if there are similar number of masternodes at each tier. If the number of masternodes are different the system will change the percentages to keep the basic rule (Platinums receive 2x the transactions of Steels, Titaniums receive 3x the transactions of Platinums).

Distribution amongst masternodes within the same tier

2. Within tiers, the transactions are distributed amongst masternodes using these ratios

  • The Best 20% of nodes according to the daily MPS — 30%
  • The Medium 50% of nodes according to the daily MPS — 50%
  • The Lowest 30% of nodes according to the daily MPS — 20%

Here you can see the ratios how all transactions are distributed:
