5. Break-even Period
1. Calculation Results
The graph on the left shows the payback period for a $149 Ec³ plug.
The calculation is based on an electricity cost of $0.16 per kWh, with each ECT valued at $0.05, $0.075 and $0.1
According to the calculations, if 1Kwh of electricity is used during peak hours every day, it will take a maximum of 100 days to break even.
2. Calculation Process
Income and Expenditure Items | $ | Reference |
Cost per kWh of electricity usage | 0.16 | |
ECTs earned per green score | 24 | Green Score = Amount of kWh consumed * the electricity consumption coefficient for the corresponding time period Earning ECT = (Total ECT reward per mining round ÷ Sum of all users' green scores) × 90% The daily mining quantity is halved every two years, with 200,000 ECTs per day from 2024 to 2025. Assuming 4,000 non-whitelisted users, with each user consuming 1 kWh during peak hours and 1 kWh during off-peak hours, the total green score for users is 7400. At this time, ECTs earned per green score = (200,000 / 7400) × 90% ≈ 24 |
ECT Value | 0.05 | Total supply of 1 billion, market capitalization around 50 million. |
Ec³ Plug Cost | 149 |
Electricity Cost: The cost per kWh of electricity is referenced from the electricity cost published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
ECT Quantity Acquired: section Mining Reward in Tokenomic.
Electricity Consumption Coefficient: Referenced from the Economic Model Overview | VI. Items to be Modified.
Additional Note from Jianlin: 1/10 of the ECTs earned by users from mining will be used as compensation for gas fees.
X-axis: Represents the amount of kWh electricity used by users during peak hours each day.
Reference for the daily electricity usage range on the X-axis: The average daily electricity usage for a U.S. household (3 people) is 37.1 kWh.
