As we know
Each Satellite individually vets all of the Storage Nodes with which it works. This function is an artifact of the decentralized nature of the network. Tardigrade Satellites operated by Storj Labs behave the same as community-run Satellites.
But there are reasons why this is not good:
- ALL satellites created by ONE OPERATOR.
- Old nodes have shown their reliability on other satellites.
- Launching new satellites is starting an unfair game with SNO (payouts drop to 25%). The most recent example: as soon as saltlake should to pay 50% a new satellite was launched and again the payments returned to 25%.
If the age is calculated from zero on new satellites SNO MUST be able to set quota per satellite.
Why do I think so? Tardigrade is used for storing backups. Backups = low paid trash with 1-2% egress. This reduces the revenue to almost zero and simple mining (BHD) more profitable.
