I duno how relevant this really is, but from what i understand it could be a fairly useful feature for new / confused SNO’s and for the network to help keep data repair low.
In the example below, the new SNO created 10 nodes and figured out afterwards he only needs 3, this puts him in a bind, because he has no correct way to delete the nodes… or atleast not i’m aware of…
Conclusion / Suggestion
I suggest that GE modified so that Nodes can be deleted from the network correctly, without causing loss of network data, instead of getting 50% of their total earned held back amount they get… maybe 10% of their held back amount or whatever people think is reasonable.
PS. there should be added a warning to GE when running it before the 6-15month 50% payout mark, so that people will be aware that they forfeit part of their heldback amount for deleting the node early.
The reason i write 50% is because that GE (50%) + 6-15month (50%) = 100% held amount
in this case only the 50% paid for GE is relevant
rants and reasons below venture at your own peril
i duno if there should be some sort of financial benefit to this… but i think it’s unreasonable to think that people will wait 6 months or 15 months to remove a node they made by mistake.
in some cases there would ofc be no financial benefit to be had from a node doing a Graceful Delete, if the node is to new… but there would still be data on it … i mean a node of 3 months may not seen any real benefit aside from the SNO keeping a perfect record on not having nodes die…
But keeping a tally of node deaths for a SNO’s account might be useful, i duno…
basically my thinking is that there needs to be a way to remove / delete a node when one wants, and to create an incentive for a SNO to do that there should be some sort of reward… even if it’s not a financial one… ofc the problem with it just affecting the account is that if the SNO is permanently leaving the network, there is again no incentive to do a Graceful Delete.
Maybe just change GE so that if it’s done before time it’s not 50% held amount payed out, but maybe 10% ofc then one would have to add like some sort of warning.
I know this might not be a big issue, but i also doubt it would take to long to adjust the GE procedure so that it has two options that are basically the same thing, just with different rewards
okay, i think i’m done ranting now, and thinking this through… going to put the conclusion on top…
