# How to Check the Validators and Miners of Each Mining Cycle?

Take block 8,456,556 as an example.

8,456,556÷300=28188.52. Take the integer part of the result, and we have 28,188. Multiply this number by 300, and we get 28188x300=8456400.

8456400-3=8456397

Search for block 8,456,397 at tom.matrix.io, and we get all the validators of the next mining cycle, as shown in the screenshot below.

The column of followers on the left are validators. Of all 19 validators, over 13 can function normally, as is indicated by the “vote” icon on the right side. These validators will take turns to become leaders during the next mining cycle, which will last 300 blocks.

Please note: The leader in the screenshot above was elected in the previous mining cycle, which is shown at block 8456097.

Here let’s still use block 8,456,556 as an example.

8,456,556÷300=28188.52. Take the integer part of the result, and we have 28,188. Multiply this number by 300, and we get 28188x300=8456400.

8456400-5=8456395

Search for block 8456395 at tom.matrix.io, and we get all the 32 miners of the next mining cycle, as shown in the screenshot below.

Suppose there are 1000 potential miners in Matrix AI Network, Matrix will randomly select 32 miners from this pool. Among the 32 miners, the one that generates the block will claim the majority of the rewards, while the remaining 31 will get an even share of the rest of the rewards.
