Masternode staking vs normal staking - what is more convenient?

Once you have enough coins to setup a masternode, you have to decide if it is convenient to lock your coins in a masternode for staking or if it is more convenient for you to continue to stake the ordinary way. I understand that there is not much difference between the two forms of rewatds, and that masternode rewards would change in time as the MN number increases. Anyone having made any calculations on that?

to my own observation, staking brings more coins than masternodes for now. Currently we have 13 masternodes.

There is1440 blocks a day, each worth 2.5 dstra, making for 3600 dstra produced eachday. Master node currently takes 10% of this, - in about a week this will rise to 15%, making for 360 dstra (soon 540).There is currently 13 masternode online., so each get roughly 27,5 dstra a day (soon 41,5).

A stake is 2,25 dstra, soon to be 2,15 dstra. So currently 30k dstra staking will have to make 13 stakes a day to compete with a MN. Soon this will rise to 20 stakes a day to compete with a MN.

I guess now is the right time to go for Masternode creation, than just keep staking it.
right, now we are at the new phase, MN rewards are increasing, but for people with not many coins staking their coins in the discord staking pool can be still considered profitable imo.

Any feedback on the fact that this tendency has eventually reversed? Still more convenient to do ordinary stake?
From what other members have been telling me, the trend started to reverse, right now it is probably more profitable to run MN instead of staking

3600 dst are being produced each day. for october 2018, masternode will get 20% or 720 dst. there are 28 masternodes now. 720 dst divided by 28 masternodes will give us 25.7 dst per masternode per day.

anybody who are staking around 30k dst? it would be informative to know how much stakes that 30k wallet are receiving per day.

Looking at the dstra explorer i can see that around 30K dstra stakes 15-20 times a day. Every now and then up to 25. Of course staking is highly linked to how many has there wallet running (Network weight)

Staking and MN reward is different, just because someone turned off their MN it doesn't mean your staked coins can get more. When someone turned off his MN, it only affects other MN owners, and the same way with the PoS coins

normal staking share dropped from 2.125 to 2 yesterday, but still have edge vs masternode staking. but the gap is getting more closer.

also, masternode have airdrop bonus. if we consider this, maybe masternode have advantage over normal staking.

normal staking is a little more profitable but as hardinero say there are a bonus for mn which make up for the gab between staking and running mn.

how much is the MN bonus?
because staking is a lot more profitable than MN
MN give (1440 x 0.5)/28= 26 coins daily

And how much do you get by staking 30.000 DSTRA daily taking into cnsideration that the reward is 1.99 ? I assume around 20 DSTRA / 24 hours, right ?

I think MN will get more and more profitable and staking reward will get less and less. It is confusing which to choose staking or MN. I am only doing staking though at current, may try MN later
 
I just stepped in and am staking my first 1k coins from last airdrop with a few coins as daily returns. Not too bad compared to many other projects where you need a lot of coins and patience to start up regular staking and receive first rewards.

mn will get more and more rewards compared to staking. at the beginning, it was more profitable to stake. now i guess masternoding is the way to go
