We just finished adding several more nodes in the candidate group that is running the blockchain. Today we primarily made the selection based on the % of time ports are found open and the % availability. This is only a provisional selection and further criteria will be applied again later. However, we are aware that our current node version is working better in some computer setups (e.g. windows 10 and MacOS), so some nodes will experience issues. On Friday we will see which of those nodes worked fine and which experienced issues and we will remove the ones with issues so that we can spare them from continuous restarting of their containers. We will try adding them again later once we improve and fix things.
@nicolas Maybe you can help, my node was selected for the candidate group about 2 months ago, then, 2 weeks ago for no reason the consensus container exited and the dummy has been running since. I’ve lost my >97% availability on the concensus and no one appears to be able to help.
@SiHill should be fixed now. try it
My percentage is 85% ports are open with dynamic ip. Changed node once a while. How long I have to wait to run the consensus container?
@Sharat probably next week.
@nicolas Fantastic! Containers swapped and synching back up with the blockchain. Are you able to tell me the reason for what suddenly happened?
@SiHill People have reported that after a power outage this happens to windows computers we suspect it has something to do with a file corruption that makes your computer look like a new node. So I just re-enabled you.
@nicolas I’ve seen this asked alot but is just ignored for some reason
Do we have any idea what specs will be required for supernodes? Or are we still getting that figured out?
@Ss19922015 It depends on the load of the network in the future. We are benchmarking this. But it should be nowhere near what you need for bitcoin. An important aspect for supernodes is a good internet connection with open ports and ideally not an IP that changes frequently.
can anyone tell me when phase 3 will starting please ?
@Julian98 Mainnet is phase 3. We aim to get this done in the coming year. Will have many milestones, some of which require people to take actions, e.g. setup their Private Keys for their wallets in the Pi Blockchain (we will help with the interface to do it), and decentralized KYC if possible. Mainnet
Hello, my name contains non English characters , so the english representation isn’t correct.what should I do ?
@Stirlingite for minor issues like this we have been considering solutions.
@nicolas Hello Nice to see you there with us !
@HoussemK hi. good to be here. I can’t stay too long right now though.
@nicolas Hello, I’m glad to see that you are interacting. When I first registered for PI, because the mobile phone version was too low, the security circle couldn’t be added. Then I changed my daughter’s mobile phone and added a safety circle. Will this be marked
@yh5885288 Our algorithm is much more sophisticated than that. Don’t worry.
@trippreed I just created a “Pinned Messages” category here, and we can pin important messages and announcments. Let’s see if it would be useful (need to exist the channel and come back to see it)
@nicolas Sir my availability is 98.23% I am running node since 9 June. I have used VPN to open port, due to this my IP chenged frequently and some time ports were not open due to VPN disconnection, sir will i get chance to run consensus cuntener in comming days?? Please help me����������
@suppersai let me check you open port score
@suppersai It is ranging between 30%-40% of the time ports are found open. It’s low but better than zero. You will be added before people with zero
@nicolas I run pi node from Jun, 19, but replaced PC with a powerful one in September, Till now the avaliability is 95+, nad ports opened as requried. Is it ok to be selected as node?
@aaafun Average ports reachable 76.4%. You are very close.
@nicolas hi Doctor! For your pi ecosystem building, can I only using pi to traveling abroad in future?
@pwl0113 Pioneers are all over the world, it would be great if another Pioneer could rent you an available room in their house for Pi in the future
@nicolas Hello Doctor, some of the people invited on my account stopped digging. I accidentally pressed the report button. I have now cancelled the report. They are all real people. They just didn’t see the benefits and stopped digging. I Will your account be used as a fake account? This is my father’s account. My account cannot send messages in this chat room, so I use my father’s account to send messages. My account is @dkjd29
@yi1213 no problem. you caneled the report.
@nicolas I want get KYC before pinetwork launched
@Afif1999 hopefull everyone will.
@nicolas Dr. I report all of Non-Active Pioneers in my earning team as a fake account, does this affect my Account?
@vjmineralesgamuyao I would advise againse reporting inactive members as fake unless they are actually fake. yes your account might be flagged by our algorithm as “strange” if you have reported a large number of people who are are actually real.
@nicolas Port full open 100day’s with 93.77% availability still not enough…ashame
@gunner2022 We are adding people as fast as we can, while running multiple tests at the same time. Remember even Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency, has only 7K nodes. We have 60K+ and if we turn them on all at the same tiime there may be undesired outcomes (e.g. a slow network, or not enough supernodes to support nodes, etc). Don’t loose your faith, we are ramping up.
