2 ppc distributions have been performed. Nu has seemed to have come to the conclusion that while we are still developing basic functionality (B&C being a big project) we are comfortable putting ppc distributions on hold. You can consider the BKS fork a form of distribution.
We plan to start share buybacks and share auctions in the short term to help balance the peg. When we begin making money beyond that required for development, we will most likely begin distributions again. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess we’ll do some kind of distribution (hopefully begin regular distributions) in 1-3 years, depending on the relative success of B&C exchange as a partner of Nu.
No one can say for sure whether there will be dividends in the future, but shareholders will make that decision directly. It depends on whether there are additional distributions for new Peershares like B&C Exchange, whether Nu is successful, and whether shareholders choose to use excess funds for development, share buyback or dividends. Right now they are being used for development and there is a new motion currently being voted on that would conduct share buybacks. It is unclear at the moment whether that will pass, but I suspect it will.
It is unclear whether shareholders will choose to have future excess funds used only for share buybacks or a combination of buybacks and dividends.
