If you do not resolve the issue within those 2 days, your node or application will be removed. If you attempt to repost content that is not allowed, we will remove your node or application.

    StrongBlock will poll the active list sbEthereum.json file and RPC endpoint daily. If we notice that a json file is not accessible or that a RPC endpoint is not responding, we will remove that node within 24 hours if the non-response continues. Please make sure json file and endpoints are always available. We reserve the right to remove any node without warning if non-response conditions persist, it is up to the node owner to make sure their services are running to be eligible for rewards.

    Please make sure you have a valid and active email address listed in your json file. That email address is the only way we will be able to reliably contact you if needed.
