After successfully setting up your masternodes, you will want to review your position in line. Start by navigating to the Masternode page using the following link:
Once the page has loaded, you will want to take note of the "Total Nodes Registered" value as this indicates how many nodes are actively earning rewards for the current cycle.
The "Total Nodes Waiting" value is the nodes that were created after the cycle began, and are currently waiting for the cycle to complete so that they can be moved to the "Total Nodes Registered" list to begin earning rewards on the next cycle.
The "Next Reward Index" is showing the current node position receiving rewards during the current cycle.
The following screenshot highlights each of the fields mentioned above:
How do I know what position I am in?
If you have set-up your masternode successfully but are not seeing rewards being populated, please see the following steps in order to review the status of your node.
From any tab in the masternode site (link posted at the beginning of the article), you will paste your contribution address (the address you sent Hoard from when setting up the node) into the "Address" bar and click the "Search" button highlighted in the following:
At this time, the page will refresh and display the following assuming your node was set up:
As highlighted in the above, you will see that your address is displayed at the top, followed by the confirmation (Masternode - True if setup correctly), and the "Masternode Registered Position" which shows your position in line.
If your "Masternode Registered Position" is showing a higher number than the "Total Nodes Registered" value in the first screenshot in this article, you will know that you are still in the "waiting queue", and that once the next cycle begins, you will then start seeing rewards being earned at that time.
