I'm still confused as to what is even required (cost wise) to run stuff on the network and contribute. Is there even a chart or graph somewhere that says, "To do this, it requires this much Oxen"? I know to register a .loki domain was or is 30-Oxen which was about $15/USD at last check weeks ago

And the reward aspect intrigued me as I wanted to have some Oxen to just have, but I have no way to get Oxen that is convenient to me, apparently, I just never felt like jumping through the hurdle of buying BTC, converting, etc and dealing with the loss in fees when I'm already springing money for a server. So I have to get some other coin, convert to Oxen, use that Oxen then to give to the network so I can contribute network resources that are already costing me money to the network, in the hopes that I will earn back what I originally contributed?

If all I'm doing is wanting to contribute network resources to projects I like and support it's easier to just support I2P, Yggdrasil and Tor and I can still pat myself on the back for doing some digital good.

I still feel like the interest is more in the coin than the network at this point. And that's not inherently bad or wrong.

nothing has ever stopped anyone from running a network fork with no staking requirement, it has always been supported but there has never been enough interest for it to materialize. I wish someone would step up but no one has yet.
