i saw a lot of post about this here. But i do want to get some information on this. So i run a Storage Node:
- 1TB of Storage for the Node
-1Gbit/s Up and Down
-No Bandwith Cap
On the Calculator is says that I could make $177 from which $133 are held back, so i would end up with $44/month in the first months.
I dont see anything of this. I now run my node for about a week, and this is what i got so far:
From what i read here that can be a normal behavoir. But then I dont understand why the Calculator says otherwise and gives you the estimate of $44.
This makes no sense to me. I dont really care because the server is up all day regardless if storj is running, and due to no Bandwithcap, I dont really care. I just thought that i would be a nice way to earn some bucks on the side.
So have I done anything wrong?
Is this a normal behavoir from a new Node on the Network?
Is there anything that I could do to increase the load on the node (as far as I have though about, I dont think so; if a client decides to put 500GB up (or assume I get 500GB on my Node) and then Downloades these 500GB multiply times a day, I would get more, but i cant controll that)
And if this is the normal behavoir maybe the calculator should put that out way more clear like:
(yes i know there is this information: “Keep in mind, this is only an estimate of possible earnings and not a guarantee of any kind.” But i dont think that everyone will understand how low this can get.)
The earning, especially in the beginning, can be way lower.
thanks for reading this, maybe you got a good answer to my questions.
Have a nice day!
