I had not considered the difference between the two. I have some miners and I also stake the tokens I receive, so there is currently income from both sources. However, I had not considered that the miner income would decrease over time as opposed the the staking income increasing. Thank you for bringing this important contrast to the forefront.
I also like the point about the "index" type tokens. I have recently begun investing in those types of tokens and like the fact that they will continue to pay out dividends passively. I will continue to invest in these types of tokens, as well.
