Epoch 287

Statistics for Epoch 287

Expected number of blocks : 5.1

Block Allocated : 4

Blocks Produced : 4

Luck* : 78%

Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 7

We produced the allocated four blocks this epoch and for the next epoch we have an estimated seven blocks.

So we had some activity this epoch with the node 1.29.0 being released and we have upgraded all our servers to this release so we are ready for the September 12th release of smart contracts. We are also upping the specifications on our relay servers as the memory use was becoming tighter and tighter. This costs us some more money in server costs but should mean we don’t miss any blocks due to server sizing issues. We have also upgraded our server Linux versions away from CentOS as support for the release we were using was suddenly reduced. So now we are just waiting to ensure we produce our last block of this epoch with the new setups.

As we have said we are busy moving as well at this time so we are having an exciting few weeks. Our website remains down until late September and it is currently redirecting to our telegram site.

Well that is it for this epoch and we will return with an update at the end of the next epoch. Smart contracts are coming πŸ˜¬πŸ‘πŸ»

*– 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
