Whirl_Pool needs Test-ADA

Dear all

Is there anybody, wo likes to delegate so some Test-ADA to Our Testnet Pool

Whirl_Pool
Ticker: Wpo
Currently ranked aß 237 from 837 aktive pools in testnet.

IT will be refreshing!

We like to succeed with Our test Phase before we go to Mainnet.
Even with an uptime of > 99.9 % we minted no Block until now.

Tanks in advance,

Matthias

The stake of 22K ADA is just too small to expect to get the leader slot regularly.
I just delegated some tADA to your pool but it will take 2 epochs until they are redelegated.

Hi mcrio,

Your Support is very much appreciated!

Generating ada with faucet is a bit Hard but now we Arena looking forward getting a Block leader for the first time in one of the next epochs ( after current epoch +1).

Thank you!

Just delegated 10M tADA to the cause. Should get you producing.

Hi Benagain,

it’s great, that we have positive feedback for our tada-issue! We are really excited now, when to expect our first block!

Dear Benagain,

unfortunately we realized, that our registered vrf key is wrong. I hope you don’t mind that we have to wait now for 2 epochs until our renewed registration certificate with the correct vrf key is valid and your test-ada can stay delegated to our pool at least until our first approved block.
Block Leadership looks fine, leader log gives 19 block leaderships for this period - but as I said Block Generation runs on the error with wrong registered vrf key.

Thanks in advance
Best Regards,
Matthias

Not a problem. Great lesson learned on Testnet :slight_smile:

Do you know how you mixed up your VRF key? I made this mistake once but I had the other set so I was able to just swap them and restart. My leader log was incorrect at that point but I still produced blocks.

I guess, that the problem is, that we once did the procedure with another user of the same group (sudo). If it was really the problem, we will see in the next epoch, i think.

I see. Maybe you could have changed the owner of the keys instead of generating and registering a new set.

we are quite familiar with linux but unfortunately we realized that the problem was bigger, because we had the wrong version of vrf at our air gapped machine.

After re-registering 3 epochs ago, I checked today the ledger state and now we have definitely the correct vrf key.
But with 1.4 mio test-ada we were chosen for 0 blocks for this epoch (ideal 2.04), so we have to wait for the next epoch until our first block. But now we are quite optimistic!

sorry about that, should be good now.

Hello all,
we were adopted now for our first 3 blocks and are looking forward now to lead more blocks on testnet and to set up our productive tools (coming soon).
Thanks to all supporters, who delegated additional test ada!

Hi @hiasdererste

Welcome to the testnet’s experience. I’m also trying to run my firsts nodes. I have a question for you, how do you know the rank of your nodes?

Thanks!

Hi,
if you run daedalus wallet for testnet on your pc/mac you can see the rank of your node and delegate some testada.
Nodes, who are expected to generate no rewards are ranked at the bottom (all the same rank).

You can see your node also with adatools.io or pooltool.io

Thank you! I’ll take a look
