Transcoder Campaign: @j1v

Some of you who use the Transcoder Watcher Bot probably have received warnings for reward that have not been claimed. That’s a problem in the bot , as confirmed by vires-in-numeris :

Node is running stable and never missed a round since started.

Thanks for your trust.

Node was offline for a little while this night, as the server was filtered because of an alarm triggered at the hosting company.

After a long communication, everything is back to normal and round was not missed. Sorry for the received warnings, if you’re subscribed to the telegram bots.

Thanks for trusting me.

thanks to all the stakers.

Still providing the lowest nonzero fee of all nodes as promised, no need to change yet.

The transcoder is active since round 1263

There were no reward cut changes during the last 100 rounds, the current reward cut is 0.16%

Reward calls: 100 out of 100 --> Reliability: 100%

There was a problem with the initialisation of the round due to high gas prices, so all transcoders are or have been late claiming the rewards, so those of you receiving alarms may have noticed the delay.

Reward for round 1472 from this node claimed manually and the transaction has been confirmed.

Node is still offering the lowest reward cut, never raised the cut and never missed a round.

Node upgraded to a “streamflow orchestrator” node.

At this time I am not changing reward cut, even if the current prices and inflation are very insufficient to run the node.

I am waiting instead to see how the network, orchestrators and market will change after the upgrade and then maybe I’ll update fees accordingly, keeping of course the promise to offer the lowest reward cut.

Thanks to the devs for doing the upgrade process smooth and comprehensive.

Thanks to everybody who trusted me and helped me move to such high position in the orchestrators list ( 8th place currently )

Hello, first I would like to thank you for the good work that you are doing. The experience I’ve had staking with your node is excellent, keep it up.
I am considering moving my other account to your node, but will wait a little more to see how things develop overall. I would like to help keep things decentralised as much as possible (in the long run, I believe that to be the best thing for the network as a whole) so I will probably not be staking with the biggest node.
I would ask more about your plans, but I understand we’ll just have to wait and see how the situation plays out. Untill then, good luck!

At this moment I am not planning to buy nvidia GPUs for transcoding, as I have more than enough AMDs. So until the livepeer team releases a version, that supports AMD transcoding I am open to anybody willing to proivide transcoding services trough my node.

I like this kind of work! Always in touch, stability and low interest. You can pick it up a little))) I send you all my LPTs as soon as they appear with me.

Your campaign page was one of the first I came across when I started to go around pages about Livepeer. This was 2-3 months back and I’ve played thru the transcoders, bonding one to another, just to understand the system. Now I decided to come back to the starting page (which was actually the best option for a small delegator like me -stable transcoder with low interest and always in touch), bonding all I have and here to stay =)

Like I said earlier, reward cut at current prices and inflation is far from sufficient.

At this moment the lowest, non zero reward cut in the active orchestrators list is 1% and I am planning to change mine to 0.9%, keeping the promise of offering the lowest non zero reward cut.

I’m planning to do that in the next round, so stakers that are not happy with that have more than 48 hours to react.

Thanks to everyone else for not leaving :slight_smile: :pray:

As expected, few left ( less than 2% of the stakers ).

Meanwhile, there is an active orchestrator, offering lower, non zero stake - 0.8%, so I’m matching it for the next round.

Thanks for trusting me.

There is an active orchestrator with a lower non-zero fee cut of 0.5%, so I’m matching it as promised :

I came for the competitive reward cut, but stayed for the regular updates. Thanks for your work!

Reward cut has been lowered to 0.49% to match the new low-bidders, as promised.

Node has been offering the lowest non zero reward cut without a single missed reward since 372 blocks.

Hi, I appreciate that you are willing to match the lowest reward cut but would recommend that you charge what you feel would help you keep maintaining the service for the long term (even if it means being higher than the lowest reward cut!). Ultimately quality is better appreciated than just price. All my LPT are bonded to you.
The fee cut that I see is confusing. Is it 1% or 99%? Any plans to have some of the fees routed through you?

Up to this moment maintaining the promised strategy never harmed the quality of the service.

If reward cut ever becomes insufficient to maintain the stability and quality I’ll consider changing it.

Now as there are free orchestrator seats, maybe I’ll stop matching the nodes with history less than a month or below some staking power or something like that for two reasons - giving them the chance to succeed in the long term and to prevent unnecessary reward cut changes overall.

As far as fees are concerned - I don’t have access to Nvidia cards but I run and support a fair amount of AMDs, so yes, as soon as AMDs become supported I’ll offer a quite capable transcoding power.

The current volume of transcoding jobs doesn’t make buying new cards or renting them a thing to consider. If it becomes higher before AMD support is released I could replace some of the AMD GPUs with Nvidia.

My opinion is fee cut doesn’t really matters at this moment yet.
