Hello good mornig for everyone. I am Spanish and I am using a translator. I will try to use a language that the translator can translate without problems so that you understand me.
I’m going to try to explain a couple of inconsistencies in that image, specifically, and that person in general.
-He said that the image was from the month of April, but it is clearly tricked. Gains do not correspond to a 1TB node, nor do total TBHs and TBs correspond to a 1TB node.
I believe that as it says in the video, the earnings are from April, but the total TBH and TB correspond to a date close to the edition of the video, which is May 7. There’s also the big hint of that 100% full bar, but those 999 GB available, which would correspond in part to the 10% space used for things I don’t know about. It also emphasizes that these possible income are not definitive, since until the 10th or 15th they would not be effective. Therefore, the image would be consistent if you put two together, one with the traffic of a few days and not a month, and the other with the profits of a node that later (in another video) said that it has quite a lot more TB (odarriba said 24 TB , but i cant remember, but im sure betwen 15-24), and which has been on since the beginning of storj, and correspond to the month of April. Likewise, he continually explains that he is / was very lucky with the repair traffic, and that normally without that traffic, the profits are $ 250, and not 400+.
-As a person, he is clearly being sponsored by a store that continuously appears in all his videos, descriptions, etc., and has never hidden it. However, it continuously emphasizes that you must use components that you already have or that are second-hand for the node. Continuously, all the time. Because, as you well explain, amortization in Spanish, or return on investment (ROI, I think, I do not usually use English), does not compensate spending a single coin on this.
This image is of a node of mine that has been running exactly three months on a raspberry pi 3 with a storage of 1TB, but that I have configured at 800GB for that reason of 10%
