Epoch 216 (7 to 12 September 2020) network parameters:
|k||d||Total stake||Registered pools|
The stake snapshot for epoch 216 occurred on 9/2/2020. The total staked ADA increased by 1.7% since the last epoch, up to 45.39%. We are starting to see a plateau in the number of registered stake pools. Last epoch, the total pools only increased by 2, and this epoch the total pools increased by 8. The minimum stake required in order to expect to make a block decreased slightly to 2.38M ₳, leaving 70% of pools below this threshold. There was an uptick in pools falling into the 0-slot category - we have 44 more pools in this bin.
800 / 1133 pools fall into the 0-slot bin
This figure omits the 0-slot pools
