Send slots to pooltool

So I have seen people talking about sending slots to pooltool. And I believe there is a git hub page that has some scripts that will let you do it. I am wondering what is the purpose of sending slots to pooltoo.

Thanks

Hi,

  • 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.

Cheers,
