ThreeFold created a decentralized business model for the sales of capacity. While Farmers can increase their yields by selling their capacity themselves, the cultivation model (or proof-of-utilization) allows for sales channels to promote and sell ThreeFold Grid capacity to the world.
- A farmer that does not sell their capacity (3.0 model) would get 10% of cultivation rewards.
- A farmer that does sell capacity would get 50% of the cultivation rewards (10% + 40% from the sales channels rewards)
For example, a company could reach out to multiple farmers to do active sales for them and in return, they would get 40% of all cultivated tokens. This is ideal for the more "passive" farmers that only want to farm without having to actively sell their capacity.
This provides farmers with a hybrid model where they can choose to sell their capacity or outsource this to professionals. If selling their capacity, Farmers would improve their cultivation returns by 5X (from 10% to 50%) on utilization.
To see what this would mean please set Cell C-20 at 10% or 50% on the ThreeFold Farming Reward Calculator.
