These stats help understanding how much hosts are obtaining in profits and how this has evolved over
(*) Global profits distributed to the network of hosts, based on the payouts from succeeded contracts
on the blockchain. These figures are not identical to
, as the latter
consider fees from both succeeded and failed contracts and include other network fees (SiaFunds and miners).
In simple terms, Revenue is what renters spend, while Profits is what hosts get paid.
(**) Profit per TB is obtained dividing the global number by the average network usage on each month.
The breakdown in storage and bandwidth+registry is an estimation based on the average price per TB stored paid
by renters. This cost per TB in turn is a weighted average of the hosts pricing during the period
(weighted by the actual number of TB they stored).
(***) The max amount of data stored on a host is shown to indicate what is the max profit a single
host is obtaining. There is no known virtual cap to this number and it is only based on the data
distribution habits of renters and the total amount of data stored on the network.
Estimations of past profitability are not indicative of future gains. The data presented is an average,
and the real income of a host can be impacted by factors as the specific setup, pricing and performance.
