On December 25, 2019, Orbs network rewards distribution occurred. This post summarizes the process and provides resources that can be used by any interested party to review and validate the calculation and distribution itself.
Rewards are continuously calculated on the Orbs network; click here for the details. They are sent directly to the addresses of the Orbs participants and include Participation (delegation), Guardian Excellency and Validators Rewards. To distribute the Rewards, a dedicated Ethereum-deployed contract is used. Contract address: 0xb2969e54668394bcA9B8AF61bC39B92754b7A7a0. This contract was loaded with the total sum of tokens to be distributed and configured with hashes of transaction batches (the transactions are sent in batches due to gas limitations of the Ethereum platform). The transactions batches themselves were then sent to the contract which dispersed the Rewards.
The distributed Rewards are displayed in the UI: https://orbs-network.github.io/voting/reward The UI shows:
All the data relevant for the Rewards calculations are available on the Ethereum network. In addition, a more structured view of this data will be shared in order to ease processing by interested parties.

This distribution marks another milestone in the Orbs network project roadmap. We are most excited about the large community of Orbs’ various participants, which continues to grow as more and more learn about and become interested in Orbs. Best of luck to us all, and a happy New Years :)
