Please read this and inform yourself on the impact of buyback program on the long term. I will not get into a number debate.

I don't really have much information or wisdom about finance so that's why I'm trying to figure it out. Those are my humble questions and concerns. Maybe someone else will come up with numbers.

The example on that link doesn't exactly apple to our case. And I'm not against the buy-back policy in general, I just don't see it fit in this case.

In real-world, 1 year is mid-term, 5 years is long-term. In crypto, 1 year is long-term, 3 years is eternity.

If someone would show my mistake in the following calculations I'll gladly thank him and vote for the buy-back policy, too.

Simplified numbers:

Average weekly profit: 60000 NXT

Current MMNXT in circulation: 8200000

Current MMNXT price: 1.05 NXT

With 25% buyback:

After 6 months:

60000*0.25*26 =390000 NXT used to purchase 370000 MMNXT leaving a total of 7830000 MMNXT in circulation ==> 45000/7830000=0.00574 NXT per share

After 24 months:

60000*0.25*104=1560000 NXT used to purchase 1355000 MMNXT (assuming asset price climbed very little for an average price of 1.15) ==> 45000/6845000=0.00657 NXT per share

100000 MMNXT would bring ~ 62400 NXT

With current business plan:

0.00731 NXT per share

100000 MMNXT would bring ~ 76000 NXT

So even after 2 years, I don't see the dividend catching up which is really, really distant future. If you want to cash out after 2 years, with the higher asset price, you will profit more though. Buy-back program will be helpful to increase the asset price IF current investors won't leave in this 2 year period which would decrease back the asset price. Losing 25% short-term profit will definitely move away some investors but not sure how many.

(We should assume weekly profits to remain the same for the relativity purposes. Assuming profits will sky-rocket doesn't mean anything as it would increase exactly that much on the other scenario, too)
