It's. 1.5 bts per block.  That was mentioned by bm, but is also very visible on the Blockchain.  Please don't withdraw any witness pay until we know the issue is fixed.  It is possible that you will cause a fork if you do.

Get_vesting_balance will show your available balance in satoshis.  Divide by 100000 to find available balance.

1.5 BTS per block, it was mentioned in a thread here. Not sure of the vesting schedule.

Couldn't find the mention. This forum is getting harder and harder to find info.

Do all of you witnesses know how witness payment will be done? If so how did you find out?

I have been looking at the cli API and playing around a bit, and it looks to me like

    withdraw_vesting <witness name or ID> <amount> <asset> [broadcast]

is the way it's done. I used get_vesting_balances to see what the accrued balance is, but I don't understand the json return value. I put in 500 BTS and it succeeded, but 5000 failed and I'm not sure why, when it appears to me that 47K BTS is "allowed_withdraw".

Exactly what is the "vesting" schedule for witnesses? How do we get paid? BM has said the initial pay rate will be $300 / month, but could someone fill in the details please?
