Transcoder Campaign: Chainflow Transcoder


#21

Weekly Update - 9 November 2018

Welcome to this week’s Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder update. This week we stayed in active mode dropping from #12 to #13 in the top 20 transcoder list.

  • Current LPT Stake - 42665.25 LPT, of which 622.82 or 1.46% are self-bonded

  • LPT Stake as of 20 October 2018 - 34876.58 LPT

  • % change - 22.3% increase

  • Called all reward rounds

All LPT I earn is bonded back to our transcoder. My gratitude to everyone’s who’s delegated their LPT and trust to me to date!

(You can join us by bonding your LPT here.)

Here’s a summary of last week’s activity -

  • Called all rewards

  • Restarting the transcoder as necessary, when the reward round wasn’t called automatically

  • Updated the supplemental Livepeer Transcoder List I maintain

  • Spoke on a Generalized Mining panel, along with Raffi and a few other people

My priorities this week are to -

  • Calling all rewards!

  • Complete the new transcoder build-out

The new transcoder will support automated monitoring and running Livepeer as a systemd service, using this Livepeer DevOps post as a guide.

  • Migrate to the new transcoder

The migration will have no impact on existing delegates. The bonding process won’t change, either.

Here’s my short-list of near-term to-do’s -

  • Continue developing a use case to run a Transcoder as an Aragon DAO

  • Investigate how best to set our Price Per Segment

  • Try and push the Livepeer ENS integration along. This would allow transcoders to have human readable names, replacing complicated ETH addresses. I helped kick-start this at the ENS Hackathon in August.

Catch you next week. If you have any questions in the meantime, add a comment here or catch me in the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder Telegram channel.
