August 9, 2023 - Various Settings​

AKYO Pool has set up SENDTIP and SENDSLOTS for more transparent managementπŸ§‘β€πŸ’»πŸŽ‰
The blue frame in the attached image is SendTip, and the yellow frame is SendSlots.
I will explain briefly. (See citation for details)

Both SendTip and SendSlots are sent to PoolTool here.

  • SendTip will turn the height of the block green (number) if the node is working properly.

Except during maintenance and updates

  • SendSlots shows the leader (number of blocks) the stake pool was allocated in that epoch.

By all means, if you can delegate to our pool, we will be able to continue our activities in the future, so it is very encouraging!
The staking method is posted on the link below, so please access it and delegate it!

πŸ‘‰How to stake

sendtip-sendslots-en

citing

cncli.sh is a script to download and deploy CNCLI created and maintained by Andrew Westberg. It's a community-based CLI tool written in RUST for low-level cardano-node communication. Usage is optional and no script is dependent on it. The main features include:

cncli.sh
SENDTIP

Send node tip to PoolTool for network analysis and to show that your node is alive and well with a green badge.

SENDSLOTS

Securely sends PoolTool the number of slots you have assigned for an epoch and validates the correctness of your past epochs.

Cardano Node 8.0.0

πŸ““

Node 8.0.0 is a major release of the Cardano node that adds initial, experimental, support for the Conway ledger era (Protocol Version 9.0). It includes some additional CLI commands, bug fixes, and network configuration options. SPOs are recommended to deploy this version on all their nodes. This version of the Cardano node:

Introduces the Conway era (Voltaire) as a developmental hard fork. Note: the node does not have any Voltaire features yet, this just prepares the way by creating the transaction formats and providing the ability to hard fork into the era. Adds a governance action for SPO polls (cardano-cli governance poll) that the Cardano Foundation will use to conduct an SPO survey Introduces a fairness improvement into the mempool logic Adds query commands to inspect metrics and data in mempool Allows the network to be defined via CARDANO_NODE_NETWORK_ID instead of needing to be passed in every CLI query Adds more detailed output in the query tip CLI command Allows modification via configuration file of connection limits Provides versioned serialization formats for ledger Provides a ledger API Changes the tracking of deposits It also includes some bug fixes and performance improvements.

IMPORTANT: On mainnet, P2P networking is only intended to be ran on a single relay at this time. Please continue to run any other relays with P2P disabled using the legacy topology.

Please note that this version contains breaking changes
