EOS RAM rates crashed, however are still expensive for adoption

RAM is a limited option in the EOS community. RAM is the system that you have to own when you are a dApp designer and you wish to ’employ’ the network to resolve calculations for you or to let users use your dApp. Block Producers can put RAM into the system, however just with updating their facilities and there is presently no genuine reward for them to do so.

Rates of the network property soared from 0.017 EOS/kb to a high of 0.88 EOS/kb prior to crashing down to 0.44 EOS/ kb, where it is now. This suggests that presently for every single kb the dApp will save, the designer has to purchase 1 RAM for 0.44 EOS, which is around 4 USD today.

This suggests that after every user that will utilize the dApp the designer has to pay around 10-20 USD, which is insane specifically considering that apps like CryptoKitties had a peak active user count of around 14500 back in December.
