Epoch 281

Statistics for Epoch 281

Expected number of blocks : 5.01

Block Allocated : 6

Blocks Produced : 6

Luck* : 120%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 4

Well these updates seems to get shorter and shorter recently and no change with this one. We produced all the block we were allocated which was six and slightly better than expected. For the next epoch it looks like we will have four blocks allocated which is slightly lower than expected.

It has again been a quiet epoch although this will change soon as there will be a new node release for smart contracts. It looks like the hard fork combinator event will take place at the end of August or early September and from then on smart contracts can be run although in reality the tooling needed will take time to implement so probably we are looking at a few months before many Dapps appear.

Just to inform you all our website will be down for a few weeks at the end of August as we are moving locations and it will take time to get up and running again. We will post in telegram our weekly updates and will try and get the website address to redirect somewhere sensible while out of action.

We have one new delegator so welcome to you and as usual many thanks to all who continue to trust us with their stake of ADA. So until the end of the next epoch where we return with a small update we hope you have a great five days!

* – 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
