@aitor sorry to see you go. True the coin seems to be dying indeed. Too many BS and drama scared many people and with so much innovation out there why would people indeed stay? I keep mining because I like to support the network, but as you said profits are negligible and with the current block reward and network size it really don't make too much sense mining Burst.
You need to amass 50+1 Burst within 500 Blocks to get a payout.
Median network size for the last 10 days is ~135 PB, 500 Blocks will pay 500*1,352=676,000 Burst.
Ignoring the Pool's payout formula for this napkin calc, you need at least 10 TB of disk space to get a 50 Burst share of the 676,000 Burst mined in 500 Blocks.
If you have less than 10 TB, this pool might not be for you.
How to calculate your possible mining income:
If you have 1 TB of storage plotted, your chances of hitting a block are:
As there are ~360 blocks/day, you'll get a block reward every 135,000/360 = 375 days on average. As a full block reward today is 1,352 Burst, your fictional daily reward is 3.6 Burst.
As network capacity fluctuates wildly (and needs to be integrated over a day or more to be useful for calculations) and block reward is adjusted every 10k blocks (27.7 days on average), you may use an online calculator, eg; https://explore.burst.cryptoguru.org/tool/calculate
CryptoGuru happens to operate a pretty stable pool catering to low cap miners, btw.
@haitch please tell me it is not a security system you are working on! Some of them apps can be absolute sht! You cant help it if your a nice guy, just charge accordingly!
Oh and you might want to change your MO, IME the assholes are the ones that live on forever. Stop being a nice guy, its hard on your health!
