  2. Battle of Nodes “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, but the one that is most adaptable to change” - Charles Darwin In order to make Elrond a sustainable layer that will stand tall in the face of any challenge, we are building antifragility into its core. Right from the first testnet phase we invite everyone to discover what it means to run a node, get rewards, and put the network through a trial by fire so it will emerge stronger. The Battle of Nodes will feature a Testnet-as-a-Battleground environment where test node operators will be rewarded for supporting the n

  5. This proposal is focused on expanding the Elrond staking economy. Please read the information below carefully in preparation for our feedback sessions. The changes we are proposing are meant to open a new era of growth for Elrond, specifically increasing the token distribution and decentralization, strengthening the security of the network, and enabling sustainable business models around staking-as-a-service providers. In short, by enabling more eGold to be staked, more people and validators will participate, more tokens will be locked, security will improve, potentially increasing the va

  6. Hi Milan, 1. If you run a staking service (accept delegations) there is a delegation manager contract that allows you to create your own delegation contract with your preferred configuration (service fee, delegation cap, etc). For this you need to come with 1250 eGLD yourself, which will be the first delegated amount (your own delegation) and is required in order to keep your delegation contract active. Everything else can come from other delegators. 2. Yes the node will be deactivated by the protocol while the staked amount is below the minimum required. If in the meantime there is

  7. If you're not familiar with Mission 6, let me tell you what needs to happen: When the snapshot will be performed on Monday 23 December 12:00 UTC, your wallet balance should be as close as possible to ZERO. You can do whatever you want with your ERD, voting for articles will be the most popular approach, BUT, in the spirit of Shadow Shards, you could be attacking other players, filling their wallet for the snapshot. Having ERD in their wallet can send someone way down on the Leaderboard, this means better chances for you! I'm putting a target on my back!! In a last at

  9. We have discovered a flaw in our finalization algorithm where the finalized block notarized in the metachain was different than the block seen as final in a shard. Based on our findings from shard 3 I will try to describe shortly what happened and how shard 3 got stuck. The current view of a validator in shard 3 at 17:50 UTC looks like this: In shard 3 the latest seen header from the metachain has nonce 18685, which contained the highest finalized block nonce in shard 3 with nonce 17175. Looking in the blockchain explorer on shard 3 page 3 we see the block 17175 at the bot

  12. If you lose the *.pem files (aka your node's identity) where you found the public keys used to register for the Battle as a Validator, you're dead! At least you chance to get that perfect score is 😅 Make a habit of backing up these files, it's really not that hard. After you have a working node, you'll find them in the config folder that sits next to your node executable. My advice is to pack initialNodesSk.pem and initialBalancesSk.pem into a zip achive, setting up an optional password that you'll not forget, and store it on a different device or on a private file locker like Google

  13. The Elrond code imports a repository created by Cloudflare (bn256) for generating some private/public pairs of keys. Due to a bug in that repository, it wasn't possible until today to run a node on a Raspberry PI. But this evening, thanks to Adrian Dobrita (one of the core developers at Elrond), the bug was discovered. So in order to be able to build and run the node on linux / arm64, it is necessary to make the following modification : check line 63 in file mul_arm64.h and change from "ADDS R25, c3 " to "ADDS R1, c3 " That's all folks ! Enjoy 😉

  15. Hi Marius, The removal of Elrond foundation nodes is not yet in discussion for the phase 3 release, this will be further down the line and will be announced beforehand. But just for the sake of discussion, the mechanism should be fairly simple, one option (which in my opinion would also be elegant) would be to keep the extra stake from the removed keys(nodes) as TopUp stake on the remaining nodes. This will indeed cause the return per staked token to decrease on average a bit, since the topUp stake APR is always below the base stake APR, but will also allow SaaS providers to become a

  16. Hi folks! I have some questions please. My understanding is that (soon) starting with the phase 3, the max no of validators will be increased up to 3200. Also, some of the Elround Foundation nodes will be removed letting some space for some external nodes. So far so good. My questions: 1. How are selected the nodes to be removed? Just random? 2. What's happening exactly with the tokens delegated to those Elround Foundation nodes? Will be moved transparently to some staking partners? 3. The affected delegators will be announced and can decide for themselves? Thank you, Marius

  17. About Delegation System Smart Contracts: I suggest by default to have some variables that helps to define: standard fee (without lock commitment) 3 months fee 6 months fee 12 months fee If a provider only "fill" the variables standard fee and 12 months fee, only this 2 options will be available in the SC This change will cover a lot of scenarios for staking providers

I took the first step towards entrepreneurship in 2001, when, as a 21 years old student, launched the first website that later became known as Soft32.com. In 2002, I decided to drop The Bucharest University of Economic Studies where I was specializing in Finance, Insurance, Banking and Stock Exchange in order to focus on building and expanding the Soft32 platform that, at its peak, listed more than 150 000 apps and was visited by more

  25. There's a method to update really fast and smooth your linux node. I will try to explain, keep in mind that this tutorial is useful if you had installed the node from the github repository of scripts elrond-go-scripts. If you don't have the node installed from this repository this code can be wrong. I always make the installation of elrond-go-scripts on my home, be careful with the instructions that imply this folder. 1.- Before we start make a copy of your pems: mkdir ~/backup-pems cp ~/go/src/github.com/ElrondNetwork/elrond-go-node/config/*pem ~/backup-pems 2.- Close your

  27. I think the minimum ERD needed for staking will be adjusted over time, therefore there's no limit to maximum nodes number. The network can scale infinitely and there's no limitation on device due to parallel processing and sharding. Even Bitcoin lightning is only ran by 10K nodes for now. First year is crucial. If we can get >3000 nodes, rewards will be less than 90%. More decentralized. In the few early years market might get monopolized by several people with high staking reward.

  29. For installing/upgrading one or multiple nodes in Ubuntu 18.04, an alternative set of scripts can be found here. It should be self-explanatory (scroll down for instructions), but if there are questions, I'd be happy to answer them! https://github.com/ahakla/elrond-nodes This may be integrated in the official ElrondNetwork 'elrond-go-scripts' repository, but until then you can just use the link above.

  33. Please refer to sections 2.5 Rewards calculation and distribution in the paper. Rewards are distributed at the end-of-epoch by the following rules: 10% of the fee from one block is received by the block proposer, while the rest of 90% goes into a fees pool, TotalFeesToBeDistributed. At the end-of-epoch a calculation will be done to establish how many new tokens have to be minted. This number is established calculating the TotalRewardsToBeDistributed according to maxPossibleInflation, and number of blocks produced by each shard, minus the TotalAccumulatedFees by all the shards during that

A brief note: I am an entrepreneurial software dev: having built a $30B budeting tool, been CEO of my own startup (which did not viralize), and been involved in crypto for years. Chatting with Elrond about a significant involvement with validotors due to an investment stream i am soon to be involved with. I see where Elrond can go, and will do what i can to help. I believe firmly that many larger players bought in early in order to keep killing the upswing in market prices, altho

  43. Hi Randy! That is wonderful. We are open and will support and help members who want to write and deploy smart contracts on Elrond. What kind of languages are you familiar with ? We have several VMs which support several programming languages. (IELE, C, C++, RUST, TYPESCRIPT, even Solidity with transcompiler). We already have an extention for Visual Studio Code through which you can test and debug your smart contract - currently supporting C, C++ and RUST. https://github.com/ElrondNetwork/vscode-elrond-c In this repository you can see contract examples written in IELE: https://github

  44. Hi! My first 2 nodes ever, so I decided to test 2 options, both from contabo.com 1. Win server, CPU 2 cores, RAM 4 GB, Disk 300 GB (HDD), 100 Mbit/s port, UNLIMITED Traffic - 10€ / month (4€ normal cost for technical specs, 6€ for windows server OS) 2. Linux (ubuntu) server, CPU 4 cores, RAM 8 GB, Disk 200 GB (SSD), 200 Mbit/s port, UNLIMITED Traffic - 5€ / month With team help, I managed to set up the ubuntu node, so definitely ubuntu is cheaper (no additional cost with Windows OS).
