  • Looks like I was mistaken. Its actually not a way to pay monero node operators directly with monero, but the client using the monero node pays via "mining hashes" which gives you credits on the node. Is this correct? There doesn't seem to be anyway to query a node operators monero address it seems. – Patoshi パトシ Jun 11 at 16:49
  • > There doesn't seem to be anyway to query a node operators monero address it seems. Well, it is technically there. When your client starts mining for the node operator, it is obtaining the node operators monero address - so it knows where to mine to. It wouldn't be a far step to make it that a client can send monero to that address with an identifier that indicates that the monero should be credited to the users RPC-pay account, but that would require that the client be fine with being tracked / logged by the node operator. – Ginger Ale Jul 14 at 15:32
