Epoch 26

He was worried because he did not create this second wallet. We helped him troubleshoot the problem.

17Jan 2020

Epoch 24

During this epoch, some of our delegates extended their gratitude for a strong 23 rewards via our Telegram channel, Dapp360 Pool Community.

16Jan 2020

Epoch 23

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.

15Jan 2020

Epoch 22

More importantly, during this epoch, I remembered the encouragement and loyalty shown by two of our very dedicated delegates Eli Taylor, and Federico Confalonieri.

13Jan 2020

Epoch 21

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).

12Jan 2020

Epoch 19

As this epoch progressed, I wish I had not given such an optimistic projection for epoch 19. Our node created 14 out of the 20 scheduled blocks. The creation of 14 blocks out of 20 gave our node a 70% performance which was not good.

11Jan 2020

Epoch 18

One memorable event from this epoch was our interactions with some of our delegates via our Telegram channel, DApp360 Pool Community.

11Jan 2020

Epoch 17

Epoch 17 ended with our team fearing a mass exodus of delegates in epoch 18 when delegates see their reward from epoch 17.

10Jan 2020

Epoch 16

We noticed that our node’s log file contains more “stuck_notifier” warnings. This increased frequency of warnings prompted our team to consult with other node operators in the Cardano Stake Pool & Best Practice Telegram channel.

08Jan 2020

Epoch 15

We were not sure if such behavior was normal for the ITN or not. Regardless, our team wanted more insight as to why the ITN did not include our punctually created block or awarded it to another pool.

04Jan 2020

Epoch 11

Epoch 11 started flawlessly without the DApp360’s node getting stuck or going off on a forked chain. To my disbelief, the node kept running without our assistance. We started epoch 11 ranked #3 in Daedalus Reward Wallet with a 100% performance.

03Jan 2020

Epoch 10

I could not believe it. For me, it was miraculous. Because I didn’t believe it, I kept monitoring the node every half hour, but it was still going.

31Dec 2019

Epoch 5

Though we had more stakes and our node created its most blocks ever, I was a little demoralized. This demoralization resulted directly from the faulty (stuck nodes and forked chains) ITN causing our node to miss blocks.

28Dec 2019

Epoch 2

We did everything in our power to keep the buggy 8.2 node up. Restarting and bootstrapping the node became a half-an-hour routine even though the whole process took no more than 5 to 10 minutes.

Epoch 0

Little did I know that this desire would bring me sleepless nights for almost 8 consecutive days.
