For new home clusters that have been previously solved, do you have to solve everything again to get scrypt?
Currently, our intent is that you have to re-solve to get scryp. The technical explanation for this is that we consider scryp rewards at solution-time; if we wanted to avoid re-solution we’d need to review every solution made for each system in a cluster when the cluster is installed as home.
However! Looking at the code for this makes me realize that we actually calculate (but do not assign!) a reward each time a system is solved, regardless of whether it’s a home system. That means that if you solve a non-home system before it becomes a home system, you will never earn a full reward for it even if you later solve it after it’s a home system. That is not our intent, and we’ll need to fix that.
We’ve fixed this issue. Moving forward, new systems will provide a full reward when re-solved in a home system, even if previously solved. It’s not practical to retroactively fix old rewards, so those values will remain.
