I’ve run into a weird situation and was wondering why this is happening. It seems that when using git.io to shorten the url for pool_metadata.json the resulting hash is recognised by adapools but not the Daedalus.
I ran the curl "https://smash.cardano-mainnet.iohk.io/api/v1/errors/ command and found that the hash did not match the one I submitted in the pool-registration cert. I then used wget to download the file from the shortened git.io site and rehashed it and it turned out to be different from the one I submitted.
My question is, if the hash is incorrect, why is the metadata showing on adapools. Second question is if I change to the one detected by SMASH, will the my pool still show up on adapools?
Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated as I would like to make sure I understand the correct procedure before I resubmit the certification again.
