Under normal circumstances it seems impossible to receive the full held amount.
After 15 month 50% is paid but the remaining 50% is reserved for GE only.
So what does it mean for a reliable operator? A reliable operator will manage to hold all data, never receive a crash and therfor never sees the held amount paid to him.
An unreliable operator will experience a crash, any drive will fail at some point. So the held amount is gone.
Only operator who chooses to leave the network at some point will receive their held amount back.
I don understand this is an incentive to leave the network in a defined way, but it is also an incentive to leave the network after 15 months. Because either your drive crashes and you loose held amount or your node runs reliable forever and you never see the held amount.
Is that correct?
