For the purposes of this informational comparison:
- 1 PRV is assumed to be worth $1.54, as of 9/1/2020.
- A node is assumed to earn 5 times in one month. This is assumed as committe selection once every other week. Week 1 is 3 consecutive epochs; week 2 is no selection; week 3 is 2 consecutive epochs; week 4 is no selection.
- Based on Note 2, one month’s PRV earnings is assumed to be 54.6 PRV.
- Based on Note 3, it is assumed to take 32 months to earn PRV equal to the initial stake of 1750 PRV.
- Electricity costs are not considered or compared.
- 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.
- Due to the random nature of selection and earning, these amounts are conservative and should not be taken as representative indications of PRV earnings.
- Constant’s PRV staking pool ended 7/6/2020.
- jServer’s Shared Node Pool product ended August 2020.
