Doesn't time fly when you're having fun?! It's hard to believe that 6 months has passed since Radix's mainnet went live on 28th July 2021. To acknowledge this milestone (and while away some time on this rainy afternoon in Wales) I've put together a league table of the top 20 'OG' validators performance over the last 6 months.
Firstly the details of how I've compiled the list:
Any validator who has been validating since epoch 2 (remembering that epoch 1 was bootstrapped solely by Radix nodes) is considered an 'OG', provided they are accepting external stake.
Uptime is measured as total number of proposals made as a percentage of total possible proposals.
The time period evaluted is between epoch 2 and 6849 (covering the start of mainnet to 29th January 2022)
A shortlist of the top 20 performing validators by uptime are then presented below:
A fantastic achievement for all of the community validators - and whilst only the top 20 are presented here, not a single community OG validator has dropped below 99% uptime over the past 6 months!
Of course this is just a bit of informative fun - we should point out that past performance is no guarantee of future performance, and the uptimes shown don't relate directly to staking rewards earned (as missed proposals could be missed in one epoch or spread over many).
That being said, we're proud to have made the cut, and thank our loyal stakers for delegating their stake to us. Whilst we're pleased with our performance, we will of course endeavour to better this over the next 6 months and for many more years to come.
