Multiple opportunity configurations will be possible on the platform. The two basic repayment modes are as follows:
Fixed APY: Miners are expected to pay a fixed amount of BTC on a predetermined payout schedule
Streaming: Miners are expected to deliver mining rewards from a fixed amount of hashrate
A hybrid of these approaches is also possible. The more streaming relative to fixed payouts is added to an opportunity, the more exposure towards network difficulty changes and operational risks moves from miner to LP. The pure streaming model can be viewed as a hashrate future.
See the following comparison table, assuming that 90 BTC of funding was provided to the miner, and 1 Petahash per second (Ph/s) is forecast to produce 1 BTC over the repayment period of 12 months.
Hybrid - Streaming with downside protection
Variable repayments (BTC equivalent to the expected rewards from this hashrate)
