Other relevant Chia news:

  • Dust storms continued this week. Chia hummed along smoothly (provided a given transaction includes a fee). This chain is a beast. [more]

Thanks for this.

Ps. I got Rick rolled but with Sandstorm?? Haha. What do you call that?

Calling that dust storms is a bit of an exaggeration. There were two short peaks at about 1/10th of the level of those from December. Also, the elevated noise is at 1/50th of December. The first storm in November was maybe 10x higher than that December one.

However, with that slightly elevated level there are nodes that are already being affected. As currently syncing speed is directly related to 1. a single core performance, 2. media that blockchain db sits on, 3. number of connected peers, it implies that currently not much is needed to get more nodes getting hit and there is not much headroom to have a stable node.

Thank you, appreciate you mentioning Green Wings Compassion!
