  1. 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 t
  2. 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
  3. If Medium is not the right medium for your Rate My Node article, go ahead and post it here. May the most wicked-sick setup win!
  4. 📣 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. 👉 Please do: Backup your keys, delete the old database, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node ▪️ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-fro
  5. 🎬 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. 📊 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) 🚧 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
  6. 🎥 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. 🎖 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
  7. 🎖 "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 🥁* drum roll * 🥁 👑🤖👑 "Cyber-Crown of the 5 Shards" 👑🤖👑 - 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
  8. 🎖 "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. 🧐 The original Mission #5 is HERE (link) (https://t.me/BattleOfNodes/54),
  9. 📣 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! 🎟 Nodes that participated in the previous rounds are whitelisted by default 👉 Please do: Backup your keys, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node ▪️ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-linux) installation guide 🔹 Windows (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-windows) installation
  10. 📣 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. ⏱ 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
  11. 📊 Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/) update & next steps Hello Nodes Team, We updated the scores to include Round 4 & Mission #1, go check it out. Still to do: Round 5 score and Round 1-3 uptime bonus, as decided earlier (https://t.me/BattleOfNodes/57). 📆 Round 1 of Phase 2 starts this week, likely on Wednesday. Throughout this round there will be a constant transaction flow from Elrond, giving nodes in Shards 0-4 the chance to earn as much as the Metachain, due to capturing transaction fees. 🎖 Mission #5 will be back with exactly the same idea
  12. 🎬 Closing Round 5 of Phase 1 and Phase 1 overall! Hello Nodes Team, What an eventful Round 5! We had a stable network, 3 full missions and the start of perhaps one of the coolest mission so far. But we also tried turning up the heat and increasing the TPS count beyond what is presently reasonable. 30k TPS though, HOW COOL IS THAT?? Anyway, back to Earth, for now. We close Phase 1, start with Phase 2 next week and re-start Mission #5 as well 🎬 Round 5 of Phase 1 ends Sunday 10 November 23:59 UTC 📊 Scoring for Round 5 will be made of uptime & completed missions. Small
  13. 🎖 Battle of Nodes Mission #5 Hello Nodes Team, Perhaps one of the biggest wonders of blockchain is that it provides an efficient solution to the Byzantine Generals Problem. Byzantium was so filled with wars and political infighting, that the term "byzantine" became synonymous with complexity and deceit. 🏰 The Byzantine Generals Problem (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-mNgqJETQg) is when a bunch of generals from the Byzantium empire surround an enemy city to attack it. Success will only be achieved if they coordinate so all attack at once. With no phones and a propensity for
  14. 🎖 Battle of Nodes Mission #3 & other updates Hello Nodes Team, Mission #3 will be a bit easier than the previous one. The goal here is to get you guys looking a bit under the hood of your nodes, see what happens when you mess around with things. Simple things first - node display name. 🕵️‍♀️ NodeDisplayName represents the friendly name a user can pick for his node in the status monitor. You can change it in the prefs.toml file located in the elrond-config folder 👉 Give your node(s) a name, if you haven't already, by updating your prefs.toml file(s) 👉 Send a tra
