What to expect from Mary?

Soon we will enter the Mary era which is mainly known for integrating the native asset functionality. This means that tokens can be created on top of Cardano. What this means for Cardano and how it looks like can you read in this iohk blog post: Building native tokens on Cardano for pleasure and profit

For those of you who prefer to listen rather than read, this and many other blogposts are also available on Soundcloud:

Definetely also worth a read is this blog post from emurgo: What is the Future of the Cardano Blockchain After the Mary Hard Fork?

Performance for 248

|=====================================================================================|
| Leader | Ideal | Luck   | Adopted | Confirmed | Missed | Ghosted | Stolen | Invalid |

Epoch 249 was the first epoch where our big delegation increase got active. Therefore, this was the demonstration that this pool can also consistently produce a larger number of blocks without any problems and that is exactly what we achieved: We were assigned 19 blocks while 19.9 would have been ideal. We produced all of those 19 blocks and did not miss a single one. We end up with an assigned performance of 100% and ~95.5% luck for that epoch.

In Epoch 249 we are looking for 23 blocks while 20.72 is the statistically calculated amount we should have been assigned, which brings us to 111% luck.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice epoch 249.

That’s all I have for you today, talk to you soon 🙂
