This release does not provide a quick solution to some of the issues reported by the community such as the clone stake pools problem. This is an issue linked to the incentive mode
These problems were killing our node, DApp360. Out of principles to play fair and by the rules, our team rejected the clone nodes setup, which was responsible for adversarial forks.
During this epoch, our node experienced its first simultaneous block creation. We created the block but never got credit for it. In Shelley Explorer, I found that another stake pool created the exact block that we created, 13802.
He was worried because he did not create this second wallet. We helped him troubleshoot the problem.
During this epoch, some of our delegates extended their gratitude for a strong 23 rewards via our Telegram channel, Dapp360 Pool Community.
During this research, I came across a Reddit article titled “ITN fork issues – My thoughts.” In this article, one of the culprits gave a futile defense of his mischief.
More importantly, during this epoch, I remembered the encouragement and loyalty shown by two of our very dedicated delegates Eli Taylor, and Federico Confalonieri.
55% performance significantly reduced our delegates’ rewards. So it was no surprise when our team noticed a loss of 8.2 million staked delegates during this epoch (21).
One memorable event from this epoch was our interactions with some of our delegates via our Telegram channel, DApp360 Pool Community.
