Delegation Analysis for Epoch 219

We’re changing it up this week and releasing detailed analysis videos every epoch. We’ll include our normal post below, but there’s more to see in the video!

Epoch 219 (22 to 27 September 2020) network parameters:

k d Total stake Registered pools
150 0.660 15.66B ₳ 1166

The stake snapshot for epoch 219 occurred on 9/12/2020. The total staked ADA increased by 2.12% since the last epoch, up to 49.31%. We’re once again seeing an increase in the number of active stake pools - we gained 15 more pools this epoch. The minimum stake required in order to expect to make a block decreased slightly to 2.13M ₳, leaving 71% of pools below this threshold. The number of pools falling into the 0-slot bin increased by 33 pools this epoch.

833 / 1166 pools fall into the 0-slot bin

This figure omits the 0-slot pools

What do you think of the video? Should we keep making them?


good video. Way too many pools given k
