Epoch 277

Statistics for Epoch 277

Expected number of blocks : 5.04

Block Allocated : 4

Blocks Produced : 4

Luck* : 79%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 3

During this epoch we rotated our KES keys which need to be done approx every ninety days. This went successfully and we made the block we were expecting after the change which is always a relief. For the next epoch we are expecting to be allocated three blocks which is below what we should get and this has been a theme for quite a few epochs, we expect to get some epochs where we get above the expected five blocks but the wait continues. Our relay on the new Linux distribution seems to be running well but we will let it run until we get a new version of the cardano-node software and ensure that we can build that without any issues and then swap the other nodes over to the new distribution.

It looks we maintained the same amount of delegators (stakers) this epoch and as always thanks to all of you who continue to stake with us. We will be back at the end of the next epoch with a short update of our progress over the epoch.

* – 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.
