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.)

thank you – I could have sworn I changed those details but clearly I missed them.

Nate: The US rate for Sept still hasn’t been updated in your post, and others are picking up the incorrect figures from here. Can you update, please? (I’ll also notify Written Word.) Here are the amounts I have for Sept 2018.

US – .004885
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.
