Gleb Dudka and I have been working on a Livepeer Streamflow Transcoding financial model. It models Orchestrator and Transcoder economics. Today we're making it available to the community.
You can download a copy of it here.
(As the mandatory disclaimer, we're providing this to the community for informational purposes only. It's not intended to be investment advice, in any way shape or form.)
Note that there are many assumptions built into the model. Some are Orchestrator-specific assumptions. Others are network-wide assumptions. Pavel Tuchkov from Flussonic supported us in validating some of the latter.
Rather than hold up the release waiting to provide better documentation, we thought it made more sense to release the model as-is. Please review it and ask any questions in the comments of this Livepeer forum post.
We'll update the model over time, to address the questions that arise. We'll also do our best to keep the model updated, as network and other parameters may change.
For now, please take a look and let us know if you have any questions. Also, if there's anything we missed or any assumptions that don't look right, particularly on the network side, please let us know.
We hope the Livepeer community finds this of benefit 🙂
