Many of our customers are smiling this week. Beacon nodes and the validators connected to them have been up, attesting blocks and earning rewards.
So far, the spaceship we all booked seats for at Genesis has not blown up, we have escaped orbit and the mission to change everything is on track. This will change, there will be problems and challenges, but that does not mean we can’t smile about lift off.
Understanding Your Node
Using tools like beaconcha.in you can understand the network, your node and different scenarios with a varying interest rate and ETH price. Using Beaconscan.com you have similar but more technically focussed data. We encourage you to use them regularly to learn and understand the network in real time, much like you hit blockfolio every five minutes or check the NASDAQ.
Have fun – and feel free to share with us any data you think is missing, or that you would like to see and understand on your nodes or the network more broadly.
If you would like more specific help and support to check on your Launchnodes’ nodes, please let us know – we’ll be happy to help.
