Hang on… what is that reward estimator based on? 120% in December is total bullshit. :joy:

Okay we got the issue, there is an error in the APR formula that applied for both 32 and 48 committee sizes, we are fixing it for the old months (when committee size was 32) but it’s correct for the recent months (after committee size increased to 48)


I guessed as much. I think @Mike_Despo and I were around 16-17 PRV/week at the start of the year. Before block production v3 and committee size change. That’s roughly 50% APR which was good back then. Pre-slashing it was even lower. How things change! :smiley:
