    The $23.4M pool is for September 2018, not August. And I think you missed the lede – the September payout is 0.004885, the highest so far this year (per Kboards posters.)

    GBP – .00375
    DE – .0030
    FR – .0046
    CA – .0046
    ES – .00485
    INR – .095
    AU – .0040
    MX – .081

    Thanks!

      Thanks for pointing this out!

      In case anyone is wondering, the reason i got the US rate wrong was that I misread my source. They show both the rate in dollars and in euros, and due to their poor formatting I copied the wrong one.
