Some napkin math

Stable Horde has generated ~180 Terapixelsteps of images. Assuming each image is 512x512x30 that is like 22 million images (higher resolutions have an exponential difficulty).

Using the current cost of, the Stable Horde has generated for free a value of close to $45000! Using the old costs (Stable Horde has been up almost as long), this is closer to $230.000 All this value has been given out voluntarily, with no ads or fine print.

Taking into account the post-processors allowed and the exponential difficulty of higher resolution images (Stable Horde allows up to 3072×2048), these numbers can easily be doubled.

For reference, in its stable horde lifetime, my patreon account has made $500,most of which has gone to infrastructure costs.
