So as I was looking at my current stats for both my nodes i was thinking about how the current low ingres must also be impacting storj with reducing the amount they have in held back to cover their costs for node churn.
My oldest node is in month 7 and hasn’t even reached $6.00 in held back yet but it is well over 1TB stored now. Even after the recent deletes… Given that some of that is also from test data it means actual customer income to pay for node churn has to be quite low still and if there will be a significant number of SNO’s leave that increase that has to impact storj’s reserves.
I know @BrightSilence has said SNO’s leaving isn’t significant for the stability of the network and that may well be true - but there are still significant costs associated with SNO’s leaving. I also wonder if storj has any statistics on average age of nodes leaving the network?
