Epoch 272: First Successful Execution of Smart Contract


Pool Report

When epochs switch, it’s always great to be able to deliver and get rewards through an open system that is not part of any organization.

Reward delivered to those who delegated by around 21:30 UTC on Sunday, May 30, epoch 268.

This time, I used PoolTool to look at ROS and other parameters. Looking at the bar graph section, we can see that the ROS was less than 5% this time.

I have been monitoring ADA for a long term perspective with mostly daily chart. This is just my one perspective and is not intended to be a financial advice or any sort or such. Please check multiple resources when trading and perform by own responsibility.
