6956.18117.48%66660030

Epoch 285 was a very good one for us. We were assigned 69 slots, we produced all 69 but lost three due to slot battles. At the end 66 blocks made it to the chain which results in a performance of ~117.5%


Performance for 286

5455.6789.15%50500040

We were assigned only 54 slots in 286 and also lost four blocks due to slot battles. This means an underperformance of 89.15%.


Performance for 287

4855.8976.94%43430050

Epch 287 was a really bad one: Not only were we allocated unexpectedly few blocks, we also lost five blocks due to slot battles. This leaves us with an underperformance of ~76.94%.


Performance for 288

LeaderIdealLuckAdoptedConfirmedMissedGhostedStolenInvalid
6358.46106.06%62620010

Epoch 288 was a rather good one. 63 assigned slots; 63 produced blocks; 62 adopted blocks = 106.06% performance. Not bad ๐Ÿ™‚


Assigned Slots for 289

LeaderIdealLuckAdoptedConfirmedMissedGhostedStolenInvalid
6958.71117.54%000000

In Epoch 289 we are looking for 69 leader slots which equates to 117.54% luck. If we don’t lose many blocks this will be a very good epoch for us! It has the potential to be the epoch with the most blocks per epoch of this pool so far.

This is it for now. Let’s see you all in the Alonzo Era! Talk to you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of stuff to read and look at, hope you are well occupied with it. With the upcoming smart contract launch on the mainnet, we are in for some very exciting times. I’m really looking forward to it and I’m glad that everything is going according to plan so far (in case you missed it: you may rewatch Cardano360 – May 2021 Edition for the rollout plan and its different phases).

That’s all I have for you today. Talk to you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
