No, the answer you’re looking for is “Storj Labs shall pay me whenever I want and they shall take on the transaction costs”. You’re not going to get that answer.
@Pac is a community member just like you and me. We don’t represent Storj Labs, we’re helping you out in our free time.
Here’s the thing… we can. Because we’ve been around here long enough to have taken part in all the discussions. We know what has been considered and what the impact of alternatives is. You keep conveniently ignoring the sky high transaction costs that someone would have to pay. Or the fact that what you suggest forces unwanted market risks on people. Your suggested solution is crap.
They have and based on the same reasoning I’ve explained several times now, they decided it was a bad idea.
What you think doesn’t matter. Because what it actually is is Storj Labs taking on market risk instead of SNOs. They don’t have a crystal ball either, so taking on the risk is just taking on the risk. It could go either way.
I don’t think I used this argument yet as I don’t think it’s a very strong one… But since you brought it up and you’re claiming it’s not relevant, why are you posting this now? I wonder what changed?
You were perfectly fine with it when it was to your benefit or neutral. Fine enough to not bother to switch to zkSync payments and get tokens every month. Not worth the trouble right? So… what’s the problem now? What changed? You want in after the fact? Yeah, me too. Wish I bought into bitcoin when it started out. Tough luck buddy. We’ve all been there.
Counter arguments are not attitude. You could try responding to some of the counter arguments instead. How would you solve the transaction costs in your suggestion? How would you solve forcing market risk on SNOs? Storj Labs actually reads these forums a lot. If you can solve the glaring issues with your suggestion, they may actually consider it. But as it is right now, it’s been considered and brought up over and over again, but the glaring issues remain. It’s not going to happen without a solution to those.
You’re exactly right. Except the solution on offer is worse. Feel free to join in on the discussion to fix its problems though. So far your post hasn’t addressed them.
That’s where you’re wrong. Storj is about distributed storage. The tokens are just a means to an end. It’s the way they fixed the problem of having to provide payments to worldwide distributed nodes without having to deal with all different financial systems. Storj is not primarily a crypto play. This isn’t mining.
