For the purposes of this informational comparison:

  1. 1 PRV is assumed to be worth $0.62, as of 4/30/2020.
  2. A node is assumed to earn 10 times in one month. This is assumed as committe selection once per week. Week 1 is 3 consecutive epochs; week 2 is 2 consecutive epochs; week 3 is 3 consecutive epochs; week 4 is 2 consecutive epochs.
  3. Based on Note 2, one month’s PRV earnings is assumed to be 109.2 PRV.
  4. Based on Note 3, it is assumed to take 16 months to earn PRV equal to the initial stake of 1750 PRV.
  5. Electricity costs are not considered or compared.
  6. Hardware costs for a self-hosted vNode are not considered. It is assumed these will be a repurposed PC or server and therefore will not present additional cost to the operator.
  7. Due to the random nature of selection and earning, these amounts are conservative and should not be taken as representative indications of PRV earnings.

Incorrect information will be corrected ASAP. Prices will be refreshed periodically.

These charts are way way cool…thank you to whom created them…I believe it be Mike Wagner…thank you thank you once again…one thing only…numbers or figures should be updated…:sunglasses:

I’m glad you find the information useful.

I do update information in the post quite often. I’ve updated changes to Jservers earnings split & weekly fee as well as both Constant and Incognito’s PRV staking interest. All those happened the same day as they were announced.

As the first note states, I’ll do price (USD) recalculations every so often (I’m currently considering the first of each month). This is mostly to keep my sanity in check, lol.

The PRV price I used is posted there, so anyone can validate the numbers I’ve posted or do a simple substitution themselves, if they do not want to wait until I’ve updated PRV pricing.
