Hey @arganam .
The payout percent mean which amount the delegate shares with his voters. The calculator is based on the calculation that every delegate forge 422 ARK per day. When a delegate has 100% payout profit then it shares 422 ARK per day to his voters. With 85% it’s only 358.7 ARK per day. When a delegate has a total voter amount of 1,400,000 ARK it need to split his share amount to his voters for more people than the delegate with only a total voter amount of 1,200,000 ARK. That’s why a delegate with 100% and 85% can have nearly the same estimated profit amount. It depends on the total amount that needs to be shared to the voters.
