I see that the NMR at stake is increasing quickly, which is good.
What’s even more interesting for the future of NMR is, how much of this increase comes from payouts and how much is newly purchased and staked NMR. Obviously the payout comes from Numerai and it doesn’t increase demand or decrease supply. Newly purchased and staked NMR does.
So I did some calculations based on the data available through the api.
You can find the details here: https://github.com/nemethpeti/numerai/blob/main/Tokenomics.ipynb
Also wanted to figure out how many data scientists work behind these models. I couldn’t find a way to link models to users, so I just counted the models with >1NMR stake. That eliminates all models, which got some free NMR at the beginning.
