Don’t get me wrong, I love what Storj has done and I am hopeful that it will succeed. But the simple fact is the company isn’t making any money. It’s bleeding out because of the current market condition. This is happening all over the place and everyones trying to cut costs in every sector right now.
The adjustments are a bandaid. A temporary solution to a problem yet to be solved. It’s buying time at the node operators expense.
There are a lot of very smart people working on many other projects as well. This is not enough to convince me.
It’s exactly how many other crypto projects work. Very similar to regular startups that have a large funding pool to pull from. Luckily Storj has an actual marketable product though. Can’t say that for all of them. And to be clear, I’m not referring to wasting funds buying lambos or other pointless spending. I have no reason to believe anyone at Storj is doing anything other than what’s in the best interest of the company.
This is like saying you can’t live off your credit card forever. True… charge more for the product or find more products to sell!
Such is life. But there is a difference between people disagreeing with certain aspects of the project and it not being profitable for people to stick around. If you worked for me at a desk job and I said go clean the toilets there would probably be some disagreement there, but could be worked out. But if I say I’m barely going to pay you enough to cover fuel and lunch, even if you love your job, your probably going to quit.
In fewer words… pay cuts!
How? People already complain they don’t make enough, especially with rising energy prices.
Lol, sno’s aren’t going to wait another decade without making anything. Chances are when many peoples current drives die they will be out.
Appears that Storj IS in the red. Otherwise we wouldn’t be discussing changes to the “economic model” (cough, pay cuts). If Storj tokens tank, the company is dead in the water. The only reason it’s still there is because people are either stupid and blindly investing in utility tokens, or actually still have faith in the long term potential of the project.
Again, I’m hopeful for Storj, and I don’t mean any of this to seem like personal attacks or anything like that. And if I’m wrong about something please correct me (preferrably with sources if it’s that sort of thing).
I’m not claiming to know everything, I’m just trying to call things out for what they are base on my own observations.
