Costs of electricity to run a storagenode


well that just seems unfair… lol

Everything is tied together. Lower prices for services and lower income. And vice versa

Very interesting. My operational cost is limited to electricity (the cost of equipment is a capital cost). My rig runs about $10 per month in electrical cost with each HDD running around 65 cents per month in power. I pay 15 cents per KWh. I am planning on loading up the rig with as many high capacity drives as demand allows.

Good move working for Storjlabs! :slight_smile:

You’d think with more and more things starting to become global this would even out a bit more. The upside is that running storage nodes will be much more interesting and profitable over there.
