  1. Hey Zodre, we understand what you mean! The calculation for how much eGold needs to be staked for a node comes from the eGold tokenomics, the number of shards and number of nodes required to secure it. For the record, it was something like $5000 when people locked in their tokens for the first nodes. Don't worry about running a full node, simply delegating your EGLD will help secure the network proportional to your stake, and will earn you rewards. Most of the nodes on the network are running on stake that is pieced together from "smaller" delegators.
  2. Hey adisimpson, We don't know how long it takes to move from waiting list to active delegation. You can track your place in the queue and the progression by going to wallet.elrond.com into the Delegation section. It all depends on how many are withdrawing from active delegation. They are automatically replaced by those on the waiting-list. The good thing is while on the waiting list you earn rewards. Last week the APR was 6.71%.
  3. Hey Truststaking, That makes sense sense to be considered in the research work mentioned above. Thank you!
  4. Hey Jose, Acknowledged. Lucian already mentioned he is leading such efforts for the next version of the delegation SYSTEM smart contract. Just to be clear, anyone can make their own delegation smart contract with more creative features than currently included in the system one. But timelocks are great to have overall and as such is already part of the research work for the next versions.
  5. Hey Flying Stone, 1. Anyone can apply to become a Staking Provider - this is 100% onchain and with zero involvement from Elrond the company. 2. This is a promise by Elrond, in the (unlikely) scenario that we drop to those low numbers. Thank you for engaging with this proposal.
  6. Hey guys, I see some of you are looking at the status of the Genesis Staking contract and have questions about it. The "Contract state: Validating" means your staked ERC20 ERD tokens have been swapped to eGLD on day 1 of the mainnet (30 July, 1 mont ago), and that it is used for "validating" - meaning it is staked on the network for Validators to operate and secure the network. You should be checking your Elrond wallets instead, the erd1... addresses that you have used when staking in the first place. You will find the eGLD rewards accrued before the mainnet launch already unlocked there, together with information about how much was staked and how many rewards have you generated from the mainnet launch. The forums are not the fastest way to get answers to your issues, please go to https://t.me/ElrondNetwork and ask there, you will get a reply usually within minutes! Thanks. https://medium.com/elrondnetwork/the-elrond-genesis-staking-guide-faqs-4d6c4c9d8fe8
  7. I am loving this, Sorin. The "No, Thanks" bit of the mission came from "No, thanks" where the winner is the one with the lowest score. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/12942/no-thanks

  9. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Official Patch Release and Round 2 of Phase 2 Start Hello Nodes Team, Weekends are great - everyone recognizes your right to be left alone and do the things you love most. Which we embrace fully, so we can focus on our work. We're counting on you guys being normal people, so even if we're launching the patch on a Saturday, we will only start monitoring on Monday. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: Backup your keys, delete the old database, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node โ–ช๏ธ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-linux) installation guide โš ๏ธ Does not work on Windows โ–ซ๏ธ MacOs (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connect-from-macos) installation guide โฑ This announcement is in effect as of Saturday 30 November 19:00 UTC. Official uptime monitoring starts Monday 2 December 19:00 UTC, 48 hours (because of the weekend) from the announcement. Be sure to update your nodes before that time. โฒ The genesis time was Friday 29 November 11:00 UTC โš™๏ธ Relevant tags: v1.0.41 and BoN-ph2-w2 ๐Ÿ‘ป Remember: we removed ghost nodes. We defined a node as "ghost" if it was offline for 7 days or more during Rounds 4 & 5 from Phase 1 ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ The installation & auto-updater tool are still in the oven, our chefs are cooking around the clock ๐Ÿ–ผ Bye-bye Windows! This patch will not work. This is the last call to move to Linux! "I've ran out of emoticons." - not Sever โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  10. ๐ŸŽฌ Closing Round 1 of Phase 2 Hello Nodes Team, Round 1 of Phase 2 is now over! It was a very good run, thanks for all your participation. We had the epic 5 Generals mission, our longest round yet, TPS was nice, some new errors were found, fun was had by all. ๐Ÿ“Š Monitoring has stopped Friday 22 November 14:00 UTC, exactly 1 week after the start of Round 1. It is now safe to turn off all nodes until Monday (please read below) ๐Ÿšง Shard 2 had troubles adding new blocks for the last 14 hours or so. We actually know why for a long time and the development for the improvement is done and it will be included in the next patch. So we grow! ๐Ÿ“ก An automatic update script is being tested right now. We will offer it to you guys on Monday 25 November 12:00 UTC (estimate). From that point over, all nodes will have 24hrs time to opt into using the script. After the 24 hour grace period, a patch will be issued. The Latest Version penalty will henceforth be decreased from 24 hours to just 1 hour. ๐Ÿง Why an auto-updater: This is so we can release patches faster, restart the blockchain faster and overall be more confident about spamming the network. Remember that Phase 3 is coming as well, recovering from those deadly attacks will be interesting! ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: make sure you watch this announcement channel in the 24 hour period starting with Monday 25 November 12:00 UTC and onwards for the autoupdater instructions. ๐Ÿ‘ป While we wait for the hot new rating system to clean out offline nodes and low performing ones, ghost nodes will be purged. 70-ish nodes haven't been online in a while, so we will remove them in Round 2 of Phase 2. They can be re-added to the next Round, if you decide to turn them back on. "Some say Mondays are terrible. Nothing a new patch can't fix." - aspiring ex-smoker โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl! ๐Ÿ›ก
  11. ๐ŸŽฅ Battle of Nodes Recap & Next Steps Hello Nodes Team, We're working to bring you a very friendly and non-intrusive Validator client auto-update tool. In the meantime we're increasing and decreasing TPS and interpreting results. ๐ŸŽ– The next mission will be to update your node in under 1 hour from the patch release with this tool. The tool will be released at time "x", then a new patch will be issued at time "x + 24 hr" and mission scoring will happen at time "x + 25hr". You will have a 24 hours interval to deploy the auto-update tool on your node and then we plan to see all nodes updated within 1 hour from the new patch. "x" = soon(tm) ๐Ÿ“Š To even out scoring between those who had full uptime but no time for missions and those who dilligently did missions even if they couldn't maintain 100% uptime, we're normalizing the score for the coming period. Please check the current calculations here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z1oMYll6ileduuvxZ0pzLuGhVKd5PwnzMdfWIeeVMPk/edit?folder=1K6Jr6_pMZWYr9Ev4kbL6Y8VMNV8R5B93#gid=0) - feedback welcome! ๐Ÿ’Œ In the meantime, our war correspondent writes home to his wife about his experiences on the battle #fiedl. A romanced recap of the Battle of Nodes event so far: https://medium.com/elrondnetwork/tales-of-war-a-letter-from-the-front-line-950ff6b5b465 (https://medium.com/elrondnetwork/tales-of-war-a-letter-from-the-front-line-950ff6b5b465)"The toughest mission so far challenged the trust we have in one another and had us doubt our comrades. They wanted to re-enact the Byzantine Generals problem and have us risk it all on trusting just a few of us. But we pulled through, thanks to our field medic and his heavy lifting robot." โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  12. ๐ŸŽ– "5 Generals" - Mission #5.2 updates & Phase 2 Timeline Hello Nodes Team, The "5 Generals" mission had some very interesting outcomes, with all of you working together as a team, with the help of Dr. Delphi and his bot. The now famous duo that are thus awarded the completely fictitious and extremely well deserved ๐Ÿฅ* drum roll * ๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘‘ "Cyber-Crown of the 5 Shards" ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘‘ - a ceremonial headpiece worn by the traditional mechs assembled from 5 Byzantium generals & their elephant robots back in the 11th century. Congratulations @drdelphi & @BoNmonitorBoT for earning everyone's trust and honorably fulfilling out your destiny! ๐Ÿค” The results are extremely interesting, because while the bot managed everything, it was still down to the player's tactics to decide how to allocate their points. Some chipped in as much as they could for their one node, some distributed points evenly between their multiple nodes, others boosted just one of them, while apparently others pooled more than 6 nodes to boost just one. ๐Ÿง The figures can be observed on the blockchain explorer here (link) (https://explorer.elrond.com/address/f41cbb0cb63d5dfbdbaea7a9dc220828523a362592e9cd6f89e517f173c4387a)and perused in a simpler form in this spreadsheet (link) (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XXFJHARKIUmBCPMe-tF2bB1dnHQX0ODM4sCa_7WHPsA/edit?folder=1gtQ6Z9c0SR8LiGlLQIEjd4REYVoROlXa#gid=287687019). ๐Ÿ“Š Obviously the mission rewards topple some expectations and create some interesting Leaderboard action. The goal of this event is of course to have fun and excitement, but above all to test the Elrond blockchain, make it better, more secure and to make sure you guys have all the right knowledge. ๐Ÿ‘‰ As we move into our more intense testing & adversarial phase, scoring will be adjusted to reward performance much more than just the uptime and missions so far. ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Our working balance approach is to make Phase 1 total max score = Phase 2 + Phase 3 total max score. This will balance the efforts so far with the intense task of running a node in a high TPS & adversarial environment โฑ Round 1 of Phase 2 will be running until we announce a new patch, which is estimated on Thursday. Scoring continues until the official announcement of the end of Round! "Man and machine, power extreme!" โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  13. ๐ŸŽ– "5 Generals" - Mission #5.2 updates Hello Nodes Team, The current version of the testnet seems stable so we've turned up the heat a bit more. We're hovering at around 900 TPS right now, so far so good. We're going to keep the current version of the testnet for a few more days and gradually increase the TPS count. In the meantime, let's get back to scheming! "5 Generals" is back, as announced on Friday. We're changing some things a bit, to make it more interesting and relevant, full details below. ๐Ÿง The original Mission #5 is HERE (link) (https://t.me/BattleOfNodes/54), we consider that as baseline with the changes below ๐ŸŽ– Mission scoring for the first 4 days of Phase 2 will be decided via one single transaction from each shard. The originating wallet must be in the shard for which points will be distributed. The minimum value of the transaction is 500 000 ERD, without considering gas. The transaction with the highest value, without gas, is victorious. The data field must include the public key of nodes and points assigned to each of them. ๐Ÿ“Š Scoring in the first 4 days of Phase 2 will be split as 50% mission, 50% a mix of uptime, earned rewards and proposed blocks. Max score per day is 10.000 points, so you can get max 20.000 points for mission and max 20.000 points for uptime + rewards. Check the formula as below: First 4 days score = ( (1 x Percent Uptime + 2 * Number of Earned rewards / (Hitrate * Max Number of Earned Rewards) + 3 * Proposed Blocks / Maximum Proposer Rate) /6) * 20.000 + Mission #5 score) ๐Ÿ’ฐ 2.920.000 score points allocated for each winning transaction. Why? (Number of community nodes online * mission score for 4 days) / (5, the number of non-meta shards) ๐Ÿงฎ Click HERE (link) (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oO2Y-4nd2PDl9IQFN-u_vzbO_YiM5e4r3WniFA6rpr4/edit#gid=0)for a spreadsheet with figures and examples and HERE (link) (https://forum.elrond.com/topic/66-scoring-rewards/) for an explanation of the terms โฑ Please send the transactions by Tuesday 19 November 18:00 UTC โ€œThe great mass of humankind possesses an unmistakable unit-identity. It can be one thing. It can act as a single organism.โ€ โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #field ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  14. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Announcing Round 1 of Phase 2 Hello Nodes Team, Hungry for more BoN action? Looks like meat is back on the menu! We have patch v1.0.40 for you guys, come and get it! ๐ŸŽŸ Nodes that participated in the previous rounds are whitelisted by default ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: Backup your keys, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node โ–ช๏ธ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-linux) installation guide ๐Ÿ”น Windows (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-windows) installation guide โ–ซ๏ธ MacOs (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connect-from-macos) installation guide ๐Ÿ‘Œ No need to keep any old databases โฑ This announcement is in effect as of Thursday 14 November 14:00 UTC. Official uptime monitoring starts Friday 15 November 14:00 UTC, 24 hours from the announcement. Be sure to update your nodes before that time. โฒ The genesis time is Friday 15 November 14:00 UTC โš™๏ธ Relevant tags: v1.0.40 and BoN-ph2-w1 ๐Ÿ–ผ Still running on Windows? You're OK and getting 100% score for Round 1 of Phase 2. Please consider migrating towards Linux for Round 2 of Phase 2, we will only award 80% of score for Windows clients starting then (date not announced) โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  15. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Updates about Phase 2 start, Scores and Mission #1 Hello Nodes Team, The Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/) is now updated with all the scores from Rounds 3 & 4, including Mission #1. We uploaded the instances where the scores awarded for the Mission were less than full here, go check it out. โฑ Uptime bonus: as previously announced, we decided to grant an uptime bonus to clear up the issues from a missed network package or failed heartbeat for whatever reason. Uptime scoring is meant to encourage you guys to keep nodes running all the time, not make you angry that in spite of your scripts and expensive VPSs, you lose points. We heard you. ๐Ÿคฉ We applied a flat 2.5% bonus score to everyone, without exceeding the maximum 10.000 points per day score. This fixes the tiny differences between our 100% operators while nod doing anything for people who are offline for longer periods of time ๐ŸŽ– Mission #1 scoring - because of our "Nobody gets left behind!" philosophy, we decided to award partial scores to people trying their best in the mission. We split it in 4 parts: Transaction with proper amount, Transaction with proper info. Filling in the form, Starring the Repo. Doing at least one of those was scored. Obviously people who did the full mission got full points and are way ahead of the rest. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please check the Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/), check if your nodes are in the Mission #1 issues list (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xR1279hEw5kzcyAX_Z-qjsj4a9AutyGIrftQdZnDvT8/edit#gid=0), and get in touch with @SeverMM to fix anything related to transactions. No GitHub or Forms issues, I already did my best to address that individually with everyone I could. ๐Ÿ“† Patch is almost ready, testing it one more time overnight. Expect Phase 2 announcement on Wendesday and actual start on Thursday. โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
