Community oriented full node, Waves platform network support, and helping new projects to be created on it.


Fountainperpetua will close its doors on the 31st March 2018

Due to several reasons, we have taken the difficult decision to stop working on Fountainperpetua as a generating node. Our main reason to start it was because it could be seen as an useful support for the Waves platform:
- We could help with network decentralization at the beginning. Today, anyone with 1000 Waves can generate transactions and help secure the network.
- We could help leasers to get the most of their leasing. By rewarding them 100% of their generated fees. Now, there's a lot of rewarding full nodes and more transactions on the platform, improving the leasing rewards greatly.
- We could provide innovators with a cheaper way to launch their projects on the platform. By adding support to a lot of assets useable as a fee. This "asset as fee" feature will soon be disabled on the platform.

Obviously, the lack of relevance for maintenance isn't the only reason we decided to close the node:
- We lack the time and resources to ensure a good quality of service, especially now that Oceanlab has a lot going on with a new legal structure and partnership.
- We want to be able to provide the best tools for node owners, running a node ourselves didn't allow us to be as neutral as possible when it came to community tools development, especially regarding nodes.
- We're now developing new ideas, blockchain innovations and actively helping mass adoption, by meeting the right people (institutional, banks, law related and companies) we have new ways to help the Waves platform as well as the blockchain in general to get the attention they deserve.

What does it mean for our leasers?

We ask everyone to cancel their leases to fountainperpetua before the 31st of March, anything remaining won't be considered for rewards distribution afterwards. A list of other fullnodes is available here, we really advise you to lease to smaller nodes to help decentralization.
We had a large delay regarding rewards distribution, because of a technical problem which is now gone. Every leaser, from the beginning, will receive its share of the transaction fees that have been generated:
On the 31st March, there will be an ultimate gathering of processed fees data from the beginning of the node, this will be used to make a comparison with the payouts that went to every leaser's address (our script will take into consideration when you opened the lease and when you stopped it). With this data, we will complete every distribution so you receive the remaining fees from your share. The distribution will be made on the first week of April.


Fountainperpetua was at the Waves release event in Amsterdam! As the founder of Oceanlab, I went to speak about the projects I was working on, including Fountainperpetua which is an important asset for all the services we'll propose in the future and a few partnerships which will provide exclusive bonuses to our leasers.
Brand new distribution script Optimal reliability and accuracy to distribute 100% of the generated fees to our leasers. The new distribution script has been tested these 2 last weeks (while correcting the mistakes made the weeks before).
New payout schedule Payout will now occur every sunday: MRT distribution (until distribution is over), Fidelity rewards distribution and generated assets distribution.
Currently supported assets Waves (of course), $OCL Oceanlab (replaced Gravit Fuel), Incent, Mercury, Ripto Bux.
Redefining community minded We're working on several solutions, Waves project starting support, tools and guides for future node owners and utility token creators, new useful features will come to the fountainperpetua website from time to time. We're also work on a "kickstart" airdrop tool allowing any token creator to do a totally free airdrop to Waves platform users. This will prevent network problems due to bad airdrop practices, a good way for people to know about new projects and for their creators, an opportunity to start with a huge userbase. Of course, our leasers who are those making possible the registration of these transactions will benefit from these airdrops(we're currently looking into the possibilities). This airdrop service won't be used for scam or junk token mass distribution as we'll ensure a proper quality control: The token should be linked to an active or planned project, information about its use should be easily found on the Internet (website, forums, social network ...) + several other guidelines acting as a filter against network and Waves users abuse.


Introducing new smart and fair distribution script: Our distribution script has evolved a lot since the beginning but it wasn't convenient enough to use and could lead to distribution errors/unconfirmed transactions. We've been working hard to improve it and we're now able to release and use the new smart distribution script benefiting from extended data from the Gravit engine which is also fair, respectful of the Waves network and its capabilities. This new distribution engine is also able to adapt itself to new fee assets that may be sed in the future. This script will allow a fully automated payout (twice a week) to our leasers.
Introducing fidelity rewards: Fountainperpetua is now part of Oceanlab's set of services and as it's an important asset to our ecosystem, we'd like to reward all the people who are supporting our block generation power. In October, we'll start our fidelity reward program allowing our leasers to earn OCL (Oceanlab tokens) as bonus to reward their fidelity. How will it work? For each payout(twice a week), our leasers will receive an amount of OCL equals to 0.1 OCL per month on uninterrupted leasing. For example, someone who has been leasing with us for 2 months will earn 0.2 OCL for every payout from that month, when the third month starts, it's 0.3 and so on, until cancellation of the lease.
Gravit fuel rewards: There are thousands of Gravit fuel transactions going out everyday, processed by Fountainperpetua but also by a lot of other nodes. We always wanted to reward our leasers and all the processing nodes for their support towards the maintaining of our community services. That's why we decided to reward every node with 0.001 OCL per processed transaction(regardless of the fee amount). For the transactions processed by fountainperpetua nodes, we'll distribute 100% of these OCL to our leasers. This reward will be retroactive(Current transactions will be paid) and then, paid bi-weekly at the same time as our payouts.
Website update: New design, new infrastructure, new features (a new nodes data section is already available with a few of the many free stats and tools for nodes planned). Oceanlab is taking care of everything to create the best web experience around our full node.


We've known our third erroneous cancelled lease yesterday, people sometimes have to encode a lease cancel transaction manually with a script or a rpc command to a full node. It's not an intuitive task and it can sometimes lead to mistakes, the most common one is setting the amount of Waves you want to cancel in the fee section, users don't have to specify any amount when cancelling a lease: If you leased a certain amount of Waves in a transaction, cancelling the lease cancels the whole thing, every time. If you want to cancel it partly, you must cancel it completely and create a new lease with the remaining amount.
This third error is very problematic as it happened with the worst timing ever: Between the amount check and the distribution script run. That means our leasers received a bigger amount on this distribution due to that surplus in fees (6000 Waves). We are now trying to fix this issue the best we can and we kindly ask our community to refund the erroneous amount. We've setup a refund page which calculates the amount you should refund while still keeping your payout. You don't have to worry about the transaction fees needed to refund as we will remove them from the total amount received and add it to your next payout. We're sorry for the inconvenience and we'll make everything we can to prevent these issues (mostly by educating people). We also invite the user who made the mistake to come in the #fountain-perpetua channel of the Waves slack, it will certainly help if we know how it happened and which member of our community is the victim.


Fountain Perpetua is now #2 in the full node generators! Thanks to all our supporters.

Realtime earnings page is now showing the right amount(taking into consideration your previous payouts).

Our designer is actively working on the website's new design and the new logo, these will be available in approximately one month and a half due to our current amount of work on others community oriented projects.

Distribution poll: How often do you want to get paid? A poll will soon be available to make you choose the delay between each payout. We're also working on a feature allowing you to request your payout yourself when you want. It will be safe and blockchain powered.

Join us in our slack channel: #fountain-perpetua in the Waves platform slack( for all your questions and suggestions.


Fountain Perpetua has known a successful launch, with more than 6 million Waves in leasing and a very good availability in spite of the actual Waves platform temporary issues. Our third spot as a Leasing Fullnode is a great achievement. The first payout has been made yesterday to our leasers: Waves as well as Mercury, Ripto Bux and Miner Rewards Tokens have been distributed to all of them without any fee, according to their leases.

I'm currently working on a blockchain powered poll feature as part of Oceanlab's projects. As soon as it's available we'll use it here to vote for the distribution schedule.

You can access the realtime earnings per wallet and the FAQ in the top menu.

Remark: Realtime earnings don't take yet into account the previous payments that have been made, the actual number is the earnings from the beginning. This will be fixed quickly.
The Gravit engine is also being improved to provide all the depending projects with accurate and realtime information.

I want to thank everyone including Wolfofwaves and all the people who are supporting us, our leasers and my designer who is currently working on a brand new design for the logo and the website. This couldn't have been done without you. Thank you!
