Even if we were at the expected hashrate, weekly payouts would be ~ $403.21. That would put dividends @ $0.01/GHX
If this process is not completed, and we hit a point where regular mining on inefficient hardware becomes a defecit at 100% capacity, as per the ToS, GHX would go obsolete and shut down.
Although i understand your concern, my concern is the bigger picture, and going the route to make it so GHX survives the Difficulty increases, The BTC Price drops, The Introduction to Newer Gen hardware, while still working to survive the halvening upcoming this year.
This would make GHX the ONLY mining option outside of personal mining to survive each of these and keep going WITHOUT reselling ‘new’ contracts to users and screwing all of their previous holders.
So in my mind it’s, suffer for the short term to survive the long, or get a cent a week, and then lose out on any future opportunity.
