Statistics for Epoch 295
Expected number of blocks : 4.86
Block Allocated : 6
Blocks Produced : 6
Luck* : 123%
Blocks Predicted for the Next Epoch: 4
We had six blocks allocated and all of those were produce successfully and for the next epoch we have four blocks allocated.
For this epoch we had to rotate the KES keys again as these expire every ninety days. This is always a point of failure if you make a mistake so it is always vital to monitor closely the next expected block to ensure it is made. There were no problems with the rotation and the next block was made so that is a job that is good for the next ninety days. Other than that the epoch was pretty quiet along with the Cardano space generally. Hopefully smart contracts will start to roll out gradually in the next few months to match the NFT’s that are being created already and drive up transactions.
That’s all for now have a great next five days and we will return with an 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.
