Epoch 278

Statistics for Epoch 278

Expected number of blocks : 5.04

Block Allocated : 3

Blocks Produced : 3

Luck* : 59%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 7

Nothing major to report on running the pool this epoch we were only allocated three blocks but we made them all but the better news is it looks like we will be allocated seven blocks next epoch which is above expected but is deserved as we have had below average block allocations recently.

It looks like we lost a delegator this epoch which is probably not surprising as we have had below 5% returns for a few epochs now.

Alonzo is now in the white era which is means it is progressing and more people are being brought into the testing of smart contracts. There are still light purple and purple eras to go through so we are still some months away from having smart contracts on mainnet but they are on the way.

* – 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.
