Seven weeks have passed since the node strategy went live on the testnet and thus far, a total of 56 nodes are currently participating with 52 nodes that have participated in block generation. These nodes are expected to participate in sharing test incentives of at least 200,000 NAS.
Progress from last week:
About stop the node
If a node has been selected for consensus nodes in the next cycle, it cannot stop it even if the operator applies to stop before the next cycle is coming. In this situation, this node will be penalized although the operator already knows it. This situation and solution is still under discussion.
PoD governance mechanism internal testing
The governance mechanism is under internal testing. It will be on testnet next week.
Prepare for the PoD governance voting
The first PoD governance voting will be on testnet next week. Proposals for voting were released this week, including technical committee proposals, as well as introductions and countermeasures related to the proposal to adjust the penalty rules. The proposals to vote currently include:
