Session never was of interest to me, yet I think it looks great and it’s now of interest to me. All will still get done - Lokinet & Pulse & getting rid of the miners. I think there are plenty of node holders who don’t mind paying $8/mo per node who won’t sell. When the miners stop selling, that’s a massive supply change in my estimation. The one app feature that absolutely changes the game is a way for anyone with any amount to stake their Loki from inside Session. Obviously it’s an exercise in economics and not even on the team’s radar but that would change everything.
I saw this and think that the pathway to Binance is a competition. I am optimistic that if the team devoted the same level of effort to collecting votes as they do to coding, Binance is within reach with a competition like this:binance.com/en/support/articles/360039354832
The crux of it is that votes are tallied and the voters split a pool of the coin that they voted for. With an app like Session, and the SN bot, you would think that it would be a great way to push people to vote. Now those coins might (probably?) have paid to have that competition, but MBL has a 30B supply, so it is forking over .3667% of its supply, which would be a Loki equivalent of 169K Loki. The thing about Session is it has that strong network effect connection to Loki, whereby if Loki does well, more people will download Session, and visa-versa.
That's a bit more complicated - but if you look at lokiblocks.com and click on one of the first transaction IDs in a mined block you will set a list of outputs; the first output here is the amount the miner received, the second (and up to 5th) is a reward for service node operators, and once a week there is a single large payment to the Loki Foundation (which amounts to 5% of the block reward, but paid once every 5040 blocks).The other thing you have to worry about is that the miner output in the block includes transaction fees, so if you want *just* the new coins created by mining (but not the transfer of tx fees) then you would have to subtract those.
