For those node operators looking to mitigate their Intel exposer without porting to ARM, AMD EPYC 3101 processor runs Jörmungandr flawlessly.

We are very excited to explore ways of representing all ACTUS contracts as smart contract implementations on Plutus!

A simple formula to gain insight into how secure stake pool is against Sybil attacks.

Good post @purism

The darker side of “control vs. freedom” or “control + harm” casts a shadow on every facet of technology—and it is a digital civil rights issue, where control over you by corporations is causing you harm, all the time, on all your devices.

"Nothing I found quite hit that sweet spot. ...but then a colleague suggested I look into Purism. I fell in love and bought a Librem 13. It's been so great."

stake pool test-net is launching, and IOHK wants its users to submit data through a Goole doc, sad, very sad.

Sadly, some of Cardano's most steadfast supporters want to help but submitting, truthful, data through Google is not an option for those of us who believe and take action to mitigate our and our client's exposed to companies that exploit first.

will manage the "hassle" of setting up a data-intensive full node.

One more for Amazon.

Decentralization = hassle?

There are times this is one of those times. is operating on Amazon & is not open source 😞

"Soshen API which allows for developers and stake pool operators to easily run a blockchain full node by providing a full node service, which Soshen will manage, in order to enable developers to build on Cardano and stake pool operators to run stake pools without the hassle of setting up a data-intensive full node.

@bendineliot @aral

Thank you for posting this, I often think it must be me, like how narcissism was removed as a valid diagnosis, removing it does not make it so.

@rantipole They don't. I added it because if Sybil, a0, is designed to prevent a person or persons form controlling the system, then only pools with a lot of pledge will get saturated.

@rantipole I would say millions, pledging 10% or more.

The calculator has Pledge to Delegation Ratio to get you thinking along those lines.

@rantipole Yes. Pledging 100% removes Sybil, at least that is how it looks to me.

I just updated the calculator to better reflect what is going on, Sybil Pool View highlights this.

@rantipole Sybil lowers a pools potential, so in this, it is like a tax. Without Sybil, all pools would have the same desirability no matter how many pledges a pool received.

Did you see the post on Sybil?
