Short update from my side:
Relays and Producer ran flawlessly and without downtime in epoch 213. We were rewarded with an overperformance in this epoch and produced 3 blocks instead of the statistically planned 1.9 blocks. The rewards for epoch 213 will be paid out at the beginning of epoch 215 on 02.09. I am happy that you will be given well-deserved rewards. Thanks for delegating to this pool.
In the course of epoch 214 it is planned that I will add some pledge to the pool and in the course of the re-registration also add twitter to the extended metadata to make this directly visible on the relevant websites like adapools.
Remember: In epoch 214 the d-parameter will be reduced by another 0.02 to 0.76, which means that community pools will produce 2% more blocks and our chances for blocks will increase again. If you want to read some more about the d-parameter and the way of Cardano towards full decentralization I highly recommend this article from the IOHK blog:
The decline and fall of centralization
I’ll be monitoring the servers during the next epoch transition but do not expect any problems whatsoever. To give you some insights, this is a small part of the monitoring dashboard I am looking at:
Hope you all enjoy these days with Cardano. Talk to you soon 🙂
