Epoch 222

Statistics for Epoch 222 Estimated number of blocks (Adapools.org) : 3.1 Block Allocated : 4 Blocks Produced : 4 The majority of blocks (60%) are still produced by IOG(IOHK) – reducing by 2% per epoch. Comments – We made 4 blocks so that is great news, slightly above expected so that is always a plus. …

Statistics for Epoch 220 Estimated number of blocks (Adapools.org) : 2.9 Block Allocated : 5 Blocks Produced : 5 The majority of blocks (64%) are still produced by IOG(IOHK) – reducing by 2% per epoch. Comments – Well we have produced 5 from 5 blocks this epoch and that is above the 2.9 estimated so …

Epoch 219 – Better …

Good news! We were allocated 6 blocks and produced them all. That makes up for lack of blocks on some epochs but we are still behind what we are statistically due, so another 6 in the next epoch would be great 😉 1.20.0 cardano node software was officially released and we monitored stake pools that …

Epoch 218

Not a lot to report this epoch, you can see from below that we were allocated zero slots, which again is not what Adapools says we should expect. 1.20 cardano node software was not officially released yet although some pools have started using it already. It should be QA passed in the next day or …

Epoch 216 – Keep on Truckin’

We were allocated one block this epoch again below what was predicted by Adapools. The lottery of block allocation has not been fantastic for us so far so this has to improve as we are owed more blocks. During the epoch we had one of the relays lock up. Our script detected this and alerted …

Epoch 215 – Luck Improves…

Well as Epoch 215 closes we have made 3 blocks which is slightly above the estimate of 2.5. As before we have made every block that has been allocated which is great. We are still owed more blocks by the protocol as we had a couple of really bad epochs where we were allocated no …

Epoch 214

So we draw to a close of epoch 214. Again we have not been allocated what is predicted by Adapools but the consolation is we at least had one block. We have produced every block we have been allocated so far during all the epochs, we could just do with more blocks! The network is …
