How can we check that nodes still posses the chunk of the file after a certain period of time ?

I'd like to know how and when can we check if the storage nodes still posses the chunks of the files that they should be storing ?

Plus, there are no information about the rewards the storage nodes get when they store a file, is there any rewarding system on Multichain 2.0 Alpha3 ?

Thanks for your response.

You can check on the node itself by attempting to retrieve the data in that chunk, e.g. using gettxoutdata.

Beyond that, MultiChain does not currently have a mechanism for incentivizing chunk storage on behalf of others. For now the feature is designed for cases where nodes store chunks for their own purposes (either as publisher or subscriber).
