This post describes a a change to the max number of rounds for claiming earnings from 20 to 100 that is currently set to take place on Tuesday October 2nd during round 1118.
maxEarningsClaimsRounds state variable in the BondingManager currently controls what the maximum number of rounds a delegator can claim earnings for
within a single transaction. This is primarily a protection for smart contract users so that they do not try to claim through a number of rounds that is too large such that
the transaction would run out of gas and the user would lose the full associated transaction fee.
Reasons for the change
- Improve UX such that users can claim earnings for more rounds per transaction and as a result submit less transactions if they have not executed a bonding action or claimed earnings for a long period of time. Users only have to submit an additional transaction every 100 rounds.
Note: this change will simply increase the max number of rounds that earnings can be claimed for - users can always choose to claim earnings for less than this number of rounds if they are manually submitting
