Is it really 10,000% per month? If it is, then we have:

[1 + 10,000/100]^12 =[1 + 100]^12 =101^12 - 1 x 100 =1.13 x 10^26% per year !!!!!

[1 + 10,000/100]^(1/30) =101^(1/30) =1.1663 - 1 x 100 =16.63% per day !!!!!.

So that: [1 + 0.1663]^360 =1.13 x 10^24 x 100 =1.13 x 10^26% per year !!!!!.

Note: I used 360 days because we took a month to be 30 days x 12 =360 days.
