Can we get some numbers so we know precisely what is needed to ensure profitability?
Current expenses are running at about $1100 a month between part time programming and network.
Our regular payout was $50 bitUSD bonus previously, however I have scaled that back. At the current level of mining we have going on.. $25 is quite fine. As we grow though I see this needing to grow. Even at $25 we are looking at $750 a month.
So at current delegate pay - we got 2 already (rgcrypto+minebitshares-reloaded) + 2 full ones would amount to just enough. However, we then would need 1 more if our adoption increases. I am hoping by then we are going to have the pool and processes more optimized though. I think the %s that the other delegates are offering are going to accomplish this. So really at this stage.. we can use all the delegates help + 1 more 100% delegate.
If we can see this market cap turn around to even where it was at earlier this year, then we can get more done faster in terms of the development and improvements and not fly by the skin of our teeth and get to profitability faster so that we can move off the delegate pay.
I am seeing out volunteers to help out with the research aspect... you know.. looking out for new coins coming out.. see what coins are doing well etc etc so that we can take advantage of the pump and dumps and the more profitable coins.
I hope this was what you were looking for fuzz..
