If that is the case, then there is still a considerable amount that is missing in the beginning of the transaction.
Michaelson said there is no published value for Ink because of various factors. But give the information people have stated it is at least roughly somewhere around $1 being 1250 Ink. The furthest variance from this I have seen is roughly $1=1200. Yet at purchase it can go as far as $1=800.
Using your reasoning, Ink will just lose value ranging from 4-35% with the person who purchased it. Then fees are taken out, on top of that.
That is my concern. Not whether or not both fees are taken out at once. Because like some many others you have decided what my meaning is. So I will say it over and over again until everyone understands what I am asking:
I understand that two different fees are taken out. I accept this as part of the process. But that does not change that there is a painful lack of transparency in the process, and there are many things not accounted for within the system.
The only reason the 30% app transaction fee is even part of my concern is whether or not it comes out earlier on and therefor affecting the overall value of Ink when it is in the creator's possession.
I know there are fees. Stop telling me there are fees. If without a doubt they come out at the very end, then that is not part of the conversation anymore. My concerns are only about everything lead up to what ends up in that "amount" column. The pre-fees value. Michaelson's statements seemed to imply the app fee was part of this value. That is the only reason that's involved.
Is there any other way I can phrase it so everyone will understand my questions?
