Epoch 274: Catalyst Voting closes


Pool Report

Thank you for visiting! The epoch has switched to 274.

Since I started working as an operator, my phone and computer calendars have been showing an “epoch switchover" every five days. I guess many SPO’s calendars have the same setup.

Reward delivered to those who delegated by around 21:30 UTC on Wednesday, June 9, epoch 270.

Thank you to all who are new to our pool, as well as to those who are continuously supporting. This epoch’s reward was slightly less than the previous one. ROA(M), which once dropped, has recovered to 5.289%. The next epoch is scheduled to be a relatively good one. The pool servers are very stable. We’ll keep our eyes focused on the future coming after summer, and we’re also looking forward to the P2P public testnet coming soon (which the engineers will be adapting very carefully).

If you have any question regarding SUGAR stake pool and rewards, please kindly let us know via Contact or Twitter DM.

Operator Activity

The previous epoch, we renewed the pool operation certificate which expires about every three months. It’s a tense task every time because it comes at a time when the days have passed and I’ve almost forgotten the procedure.

Catalyst voting closes at 11:00 a.m. UTC on June 25. If you have too many to look through, you can narrow down your choices to your interests of a category such as Dapps. It is very easy, so in case you have missed, please join us next time as it will be opened again in the future.

When I was looking through the proposals for the Catalyst poll, I found a lot of stuff related to the Blockfrost tool, so I decided to check it out and write a quick blog about it. I knew that these tools existed, but it is the first time I’ve actually tried it out. It’s close to what I do on a daily basis as a backend engineer so it’s fun to play around with it.


The wick bounced off the 200-day moving average (upper red dotted line) and the candle body is supported by the horizontal line. In this way, the technicals are working well. Bitcoin is supported by the 300-day moving average and is dead-crossing the 50-day and 200-day moving averages.

Overall, this is a daily chart, with a long-term perspective. It is not intended to give investment advice, but to be part of an important asset check and to support Cardano.
I may make predictions about trends, but this is just one individual’s perspective. Please analyze from various angles and trade at your own risk.

Thank you for taking your time reading.
