I recently put together a tiered staking calculator and posted it in the Nash reddit community (unofficial):
Here it is [Google Sheets] (it will prompt you to create a copy – this is so you’ll have a sheet separate from what other people are editing).
I thought people here might find it interesting to play around with, as the idea has been mentioned here before in older posts.
Tiered staking is a way of ensuring almost 5% of your total NEX stash is liquid and available in your wallet every single month for four years. This calculator is only meant to illustrate how you’d do this, and what returns may look like.
This calculator operates on huge assumptions:
Revenue stays the same over the entire four year period – this is impossible, but for simplicity’s sake the calculator doesn’t calculate anything other than what you enter.
There is no maximum amount of stakes permitted on the platform per user (this method requires 24 separate stakes.)
Probably a handful of other things I’m not considering
The idea isn’t for this table to paint an accurate picture of potential profits, it’s simply to showcase how the tiered staking method works. Also, in using this strategy, you are losing a small amount of profit on the first 24 months of staking. Since each initial stake is anywhere from 1 month to 24 months long, you aren’t receiving the full 75% stake rate should you decide to do a full 2 year stake on day 1. That being said, after the first 24 months of staking, you will transition into receiving profit from 24 separate stakes at the 75% rate every single month. I hope that makes sense – I’m terrible at writing these things out, lol.
