How to read the graph

This simulator visualizes the likely outcomes of pooling your stock into a diversified portfolio. Each dot on the graph represents a possible outcome. The greater the density of dots, the more likely such an outcome. The x-axis inidicates the average time it will take to realize a cash liquidation. In many scenarios, indicated by the color of the dots, you will have multiple liquidity events. In such a scenario the x-axis represents the average timing. The y-axis indicates the cash value you will receive from the pool as a multiple of the paper value contributed.
