Dash Core Group
No this is incorrect, it's a market, so they could have lower rewards, incentivizing them to switch to 1K Masternodes.as their reward will at minimum be equal to 1K masternodes
the 1K masternodes could actually receive less rewards in comparison with 4K masternodes over time, if i remember correctly from the presentation
Well when it's a market I can't know for sure what will happen, this is an experiment that I do not think has ever been done before exactly like this. However market theory would say that the 4K masternodes would only get more rewards because of a potential risk that they would undertake. I am going to guess that the market will value this risk quite low. So maybe we would see normal MNs get 7.4% and HPMNs 7.8% or something like that.
Now lets imagine high platform usage causing rewards for HPMNs to go up to about 9%. The market would still exist, so normal masternodes would see their rewards also go up (maybe to something like 8.5%).
The Platform fees can also be set by a fee multiplier (not immediately but soon after release) so basically if we choose the 10k system and then the masternodes vote to have the fee multiplier at 6 instead of the base 2 then Masternode rewards could become quite high while users would see the same fees at they would have in the 4k system. This is really the very strong benefit of the 10k system.
But what bothers me the most is that the presentation has so much guesstimation and speculation about TPS, Fees, Equilibrium trends, Dash whales activity, while at the same time asking masternode owners to make a decision based on all that.
I really wish I could give more concrete numbers, but things just aren't at that point yet and won't be for at least another month. Waiting to be 100% sure on the numbers would push this conversation out too late. The estimations I gave were based on tests though.
