Why new validators get small rewards (around 70 ETL for 1 epoch with 100,000 ETL staked) note that many other validators got the same.
According to the blockchain, we validate only blocks with more than 1 transaction. Is that right? See link below to explorer.
So for my pool Antares1, I got 71 ETL.
The price of renting a server will get me X 50 more coins on the exchanges.
An older pool like pool_15 will validate blocks with 0 transaction (so there is a lot more of those) therefore just staking 10,000 ETL got me 50 ETL on pool_15.
Is this how it’s suppose to work?
BTW. The Average block time when from 3 seconds on epoch 13, 5 seconds on epoch 14 and now at 7.8 seconds on epoch 15
So, now rewards/epochs will be every 16 days instead of 7 days with 3 seconds block. Even less coins per month.
It’s gonna be hard to get validators to rent servers for this amount of coins unless our pools get to validate the same amount of blocks as (for example pool_15) then a validators would get at least 500 ETL(or close to) per epoch.
Thanks for getting back to me with some clarification.
