Epoch 273

Statistics for Epoch 273

Expected number of blocks : 5.05

Block Allocated : 3

Blocks Produced : 3

Luck* : 59%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 5

So for the last epoch we were allocated three blocks on an expectation of five and we produced all the blocks we were allocated. For the next epoch we have an estimated five blocks allocated to us which is what is expected on average.

Again this was a quiet epoch with everything running smoothly so nothing to report there.

Regarding delegators it looks like we have lost one during the epoch.

Not a lot else to say. Smart contracts are coming with Alonzo blue currently being superseded by Alonzo white perhaps this week which will open the smart contract platform up to a greater selected group for testing before the public test-net is released. Just a reminder there is a Cardano 360 episode that will be shown today with updates on the progress of smart contracts and general Cardano development. These are quite in depth session but if interested you can ubscribe to IOG YouTube channel to be alerted as soon as the show hits the air https://youtube.com/c/IohkIo

We will return at the end of the next epoch with a short update on how the epoch progressed and we hope to see you then. Thanks as always to all of you who continue to choose us to stake with!

* – Blocks are allocated randomly each epoch based upon total stake a pool has just like a lottery. Luck refers to how many blocks were allocated to a pool against the expected blocks that the pools should produce. Some epochs (5 day periods) you will be allocated more blocks and some less but over time it should even out.
