Weekly Update - 29 September 2018
Welcome to this week’s Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder update. This week we stayed in active mode at #11 in the top 20 transcoder list.
Current LPT Stake - 31699.48 LPT
Last Week’s LPT Stake - 30205.08 LPT
% change - 4.9% increase
We called rewards for each and every round we were eligible for this week.
My gratitude to everyone’s who’s delegated their LPT and trust to me to date!

Here’s a summary of last week’s activity -
- Focused on calling all rewards
I still have my virtual assistant team checking this daily. I then confirm their results.
- Provided feedback on a monitoring tool Aaron from Bison Trails is developing
I’m hoping to implement an automated tool soon! The feedback I provided will hopefully help increase the tool’s value to the transcoder community.
- Confirmed why we’re not receiving fees yet
Fees are collected when a transcoder processes video streams. Video traffic on the Livepeer network is light right now. That’s why we haven’t done any video processing or collected fees yet.
- Developed a supplemental Transcoder list
The list is here. It’s intended to supplement the list on the Livepeer Explorer. For example, it maps Transcoder campaigns to their respective addresses. My hope is that the list will help the LPT holders choose a Transcoder to bond with.
My priorities this week are to -
Continue calling all rewards!
Automate monitoring, ask virtual assistants to continue manually checking too
Investigate how best to set our Price Per Segment
Run Livepeer as a systemd service
Here’s my short-list of near-term to-do’s -
Continue developing a use case to run a Transcoder as an Aragon DAO
Implement automated monitoring solutions
Aaron from Bison Trails developed a transcoder SMS alerting script. I suggested he modify it to use a Telegram bot. Once he does that, I’ll push reward call updates to the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder Telegram Channel.
Continue working my way through this very beneficial Livepeer DevOps post 1
Studying the Supermax stats
Keep an eye on transcoding tests the Livepeer team is running
