Epoch 284

Statistics for Epoch 284

Expected number of blocks : 5.02

Block Allocated : 4

Blocks Produced : 4

Luck* : 80%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 11

We again produced all the blocks we were allocated (four) and the good news is that after many epochs where we were allocated below the expected five blocks we now have an estimated eleven blocks for the next epoch which will make for some very nice returns.

The epoch has been quiet but this will only last a few more weeks before a new node is releases and Alonzo activated. As I said before the tooling is running behind the activation of smart contracts so my guess is that it will be some months before we start to see many DApps released. Of course there will be some released when Alonzo is activated and from there as the infrastructure and tooling and experience increase the DApps will start flowing. It will be interesting to see what DApps are initially released but I expect there will be some FUD from other chains about the number of DApps released initially.

Again just a reminder that 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. This is ONLY our website, our cardano nodes will be working without any interruptions. 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 again one new delegator this epoch 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.

* – 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
