[Pool Update] Epoch 225 & 226

Hey People!

Just a little update for everyone not following on twitter or telegram.

Last epoch (225) we produced 2 blocks of statistically intended 1.9 blocks and thus had a slight overperformance of 105% 🙂

The even better news; I have already looked at the schedule for 226 and I don’t want to withhold it from you:

Checking leadership log for Epoch 226 [ d Param: 0.52 ]
2020-10-28 01:13:12 ==> Stolen by BFT for 8901, Cumulative stolen blocks due to d param: 1
2020-10-29 06:31:34 ==> Stolen by BFT for 114403, Cumulative stolen blocks due to d param: 2
2020-10-29 09:58:50 ==> Leader for 126839, Cumulative epoch blocks: 1
2020-11-01 06:16:14 ==> Leader for 372683, Cumulative epoch blocks: 2
2020-11-01 07:02:19 ==> Stolen by BFT for 375448, Cumulative stolen blocks due to d param: 3
2020-11-01 13:46:51 ==> Leader for 399720, Cumulative epoch blocks: 3
2020-11-01 21:30:50 ==> Stolen by BFT for 427559, Cumulative stolen blocks due to d param: 4

Note: The times shown refer to the central european summer time (CET, UTC+1).

Overall we’re heading for three blocks in 226 (if there are no slot battles) which means an overperformance for this epoch and therefore good rewards. If d were zero we would even produce 7 blocks this epoch. Really looking forward for d to further decrease in the future.

Thats it for now. Talk to you soon 🙂

EDIT: Due to a miscalculation in the last schedule we produced only two blocks instead of the above mentioned three blocks. This still means a performance of 105% but I just wanted to clarify this. Transparency is key and therefore I do want to excuse for this mistake!
