    If you harvested public proxy lists and (I am guessing) didn't verify them to any useable degree, probably around $1 if you can find someone who doesn't want to take the time to compile your list.

    If you verified/filtered them then probably a bit more, it really depends on the quality of the proxies and many other factors.

    as a proxy harvester guy of 10 yrs, you will never get 62k live public
    proxies, not today, tomorrow or next Christmas, it is a known fact that
    at any one time on the net the average live list of a bunch of scraped
    public proxies is 5k or there a bout's.

    if like me you port scan public proxies
    that can not be scraped, it will be slightly higher but not much, the only
    difference being a url scraper can not collect port scanned proxies.

    the only possible way to get that many live proxies in 1 go is a botnet
    a bunch of compromised pcs infected with malware to be under control
    of 1 user for such things as fraud/spam.

    my guess is you scraped 62k proxies, haven't tested them or the list would
    be 5k live or less. this also shows you dont no what your doing no offense
    + 5k pubic proxies will be dead in an hr or so because everyone else out
    there SCRAPING proxies will have access to exactly the same proxies you
    scraped but didnt test

    Why do not use them yourself? they are untested
