Four weeks have passed since the node strategy went live on the testnet and thus far, a total of 53 nodes are currently participating with 46 nodes that have participated in block generation. These nodes are expected to participate in sharing test incentives of at least 150,000 NAS.
Progress from last week:
Email notification system
Notifications include missing block generation, penalties and being elected as a governance node. These notifications will better help the node operator monitor and make timely adjustments.
Tech support FAQ for node strategy
It is a supplementary guide for those facing issues with node mining configuring. Read the Tech Support FAQ for Node Strategy。
Show the penalized records on the node page
if no blocks generated for an entire cycle, or multiple blocks generated at the same height or failure to revoke a “bad” block, the node will be penalized. NAS and NAX will be frozen. Read Block Generation Penalties.
Governance mechanism development continues
Development is expected to be completed in February followed by testing the consensus mechanisms and governance mechanisms together.
Blocks Generation Analytics.
Plan for next week
Governance mechanism development continues.
A series of details about the node’s planned mainnet will be released this month.
Recently, some users have asked when will nodes strategy launch on the mainnet. It will be after the governance mechanism developed and tested. Drawing on the experience of online testnet, we will make full preparations and reserve more time for node operators to complete the migration, and then everyone waits for the arrival of the first polling cycle. The mainnet launch is expected to be completed in March. The relevant node operation steps, asset settlement, testnet rewards distribution, and other details will be released in February. stay tuned.
Participate in the development of contracts and tools related to the node strategy.
We will submit some bounties according to the community suggestion, you can apply on the Nebulas Community Collaboration Platform. Welcome to learn the new bounty：Node Strategy Smart Contract Template。
You can also submit your proposal on go.nebulas.io.
