Epoch 279

Statistics for Epoch 279

Expected number of blocks : 5.03

Block Allocated : 7

Blocks Produced : 7

Luck* : 139%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 8

Smooth epoch we produced the seven blocks we had allocated and have an estimated 8 blocks on an expectation of five for the next epoch which is really nice.

Delegation wise it seems we maintained the stake in the pool so that is good news and maybe now we have a few good epochs we might gain some new delegation.

Boring but not much else to report. We wait for a new cardano-node version (1.2.8?) which must be due soon and then we can test out building the new node on our new operating system to check that out before we change the other nodes over. Other than that thanks to all of you who continue to trust our pool for delegation and we will return with a short update at the end of the next 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.
