(If EAs end up committing a significant proportion of the $100k (or even all of it), will Paul reduce his 'haircut' or not?)

If $50,000 gets contributed, it reduces my risk by a factor of 2, so I could halve the fee (and if $100k got contributed I could reduce it to zero). I'll probably do that.

It looks like the total will be around $50k, so I'm going to reduce the cut to 0.5%.
