penny stake

A penny stake is one-percent* (1%) of a given enterprise.** The percentage comes from the fact that it would account for a single penny, which is 1% of a given link. As a tax (excise), it could also be the difference between ¢ents🪙 in a markup (ie. from fraction to whole {QZ}).

Pertaining to juking, the penny stake is the tightness (strictly one ¢ent🪙) relative to the handicap/yield. (see penny fret, penny package, juke tax, coupon partition)
/// This is a recycled value; the differential ¢ent🪙 lost in an effort towards commuting MONEY is (re)gained here.
