Explain the SmartNode Payout System? A general outline of the function of Smartnode payout system is needed


I reviewed the Smartnode payout system and past payouts and there is significant irregularity. The system seems designed to reward the firstcomers in a heavily disproportionate manner.

The topic has been brought up before and because of the lack of technical knowledge of the person questioning it was dismissed.

The system should be better, not technically but morally. And the way the payouts function should be information that is made readily available to everyone.
