Running a dVPN node brings with it costs for the owner. Think about costs for buying hardware and paying the electricity bill. Or paying the VPS provider. In return there is a reward system in place that is market based. So how does it work? Well the base reward depends on 2 things:
How high do you set the price for customers to use your node as their dVPN.
How much do customers use your node as their dVPN.
This will create a market for using a dVPN and strike a balance between the quality/performance of a node vs the price set by the owner. Setting the price too high will get you less customers and setting it too low will cut some of your profits.
