Re: ***Official Staking Discussion Thread: Use this thread for staking advice/questions***

I am staking someone and we agreed to split profits once a week, every Thursday. He has to clear make up before we can chop.

- Towards the end of the week, if he's up money, he is scared to lose it and not be able to profit so he puts in less volume and probably plays a little scared.

He recently asked me if we could split profits daily instead of weekly.

- Am I taking on more risk by chopping daily instead of weekly?

No additional risk, just a much bigger accounting hassle having to do it daily.

Ok thanks Tyman. It's such a silly question but it made me confused.

It made me feel like if he was up $1000 and we split, then he plays and loses $1000 it would change my bottom line. Like he got paid and now he's in make up and I'm down money.

Vs if he made $1000 and we didn't split. He then loses $1000 and the roll is still the same.

As I'm typing this I realize how stupid this sounds. In the end, it doesn't matter because he has to make up the money.

Yeah, I mean it definitely benefits the backer to do splits less often in certain ways but as long as you are properly rolled for what you are staking for and as long as you don't mind the extra accounting work there's no difference in how much you will make by staking the person. It will actually increase your yearly expectation from the stake for both of you if it causes him to put in more volume because of it.
