Cardano is now 100% decentralized
On March 31st around 10 PM (at the beginning of epoch 257) the time had come. IOHK switched off the last of its 7 Nodes and thus handed over 100% of the block production to the operators of stake pools.
Since the Shelly Update in July 2020, which initiates the area of decentralization and is the forerunner of the Goguen Area, the so-called “D” parameter has been set by the IOHK.
The D parameter should represent and regulate how many blocks should be produced by the Genesis accounts. At the beginning this was set at the value of 1.0 and decreased by 0.02 per epoch. So in each epoch the Genesis Nodes of IOHK were switched off bit by bit.
Our pool (CDA) has been part of the network since January 1st, 2021 and this with an uptime of 99.99%, so we are proud to contribute to the decentralization of Cardano with our pool and look forward to the future and our first block with you.
