The problem A problem I discoverd after compiling the cardano-node for the first time is that the node would simply …
We made our first block Hooray!!
For every stake pool operator it’s a happy and maybe a bit of a nerve wrecking event, creating the first block . Until you see that it worked there is always this little bit of doubt, is everything setup correctly. Even though I prepared well and the RV64 testnet node minted over a 1000 blocks, arround slot 37556 (epoch 298) I found my self staring at the screen waiting for the leader metric to jump from 0 to 1.
Before putting new release on mainnet it must have run for a few days on testnet an epoch if there is time.
The RV64 testnet configuration has one relay and a producer node that run on the build server, this works just fine even while building the GHC compiler or the cardano-node.
Builds can be started with
nice to run at a lower priority.
I’d like to thank our early delegators for their patience and support, and do join our delegators in their support for Cardano on RISC-V by delegating to RV64.
