I just wanted to give some perspective here. I am staking my own pnode, and my average return is around 55% APY. So, from a numbers standpoint:
1750 x 55% = 962.5 PRV
If I roll those earnings into provide at 28% APY
962.5 PRV x 28% = 260 PRV
So for the year, I’m looking at around 1223 PRV per year
So your node out of the box, from a simplicity standpoint, looks to yield you
1223 x 35% = 428 PRV or $723 USD (at current PRV prices)
That is a pretty good return considering the incog team is fronting you the funds to run your node, and its just sitting plugged in somewhere in your home. Most nodes on other projects will cost you much more than what it does to run one for this network, requires more technical knowledge to set up, and they require you to fully fund it yourself upfront. Also keep in mind, that as the value of PRV increases, your USD value will continue to rise as you save up your PRV to fully stake the node yourself to receive the full 100% of the earnings.
