Dear Tezos Community,
I have setup a node and baker with Kiln. Everything went really smoothly.
I currently have around 45 connected peers.
I would like to know if (for security reasons), it is a best practice to turn my node in private mode?
I noticed that as soon as I turn on my node to private mode, I get only 10 peers. So what is the difference between having Kiln running in "normal mode" with 45 peers and Kiln running in "private mode" with 10 peers?

I’m not sure if it happened to everyone. But I think coinbase just bumped down its tezos percentage to 4.9%. I know it was at 5.3 at one point. Can they just keep bumping it as low as they want or is it based off tezos?
Cause if they can then I’ll just do it elsewhere, just do it there now cuz of convenience but I don’t want to get cheated out too much.

When it says 500XTZ minimum for delegation. Does that mean I wont get rewards unless i stake at least 500 coins with them? I dont have 500 coins yet but i am having trouble finding a place to stake on my ledger that doesnt have a minimum of 500

Welcome to the weekly baker discussion thread, a place for everything related to baking and delegation.
A few simple rules: * Stay on topic and keep it civilized. No disparagement of other bakers. * Public bakers are allowed to promote their services inside this thread. * Use the up/down votes to keep this thread self-moderated.
Feel free to leave any feedback to the moderator team in the comments.

hey guys. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but i delegated my xtz to TZnode on the 27th march. should have started my payouts by now but I'm getting nothing. they are overdelegated atm but I'm pretty sure when i delegated to them they still had capacity.
i have delegated to them before and they did payout in the past but i switch to another baker then switched back. i can't think of anything else. help?

last post is 2 weeks old, in order to post something new you need permission from mods, yet mods seem to be AFK (the permission I asked expired, asked again)... We cannot ask from people in this sub to post price discussion threads there if they actually can't!

I like to think of myself as a Tezos OG. Around for the ICO, baking from the get go, voted on every proposal, and I continually try to add "helpful" insight in this subreddit from my perspective.
I work as a Software Designer for a software organization that focuses on user centered design. Although I'm pretty aware of Tezos and the crypto space, I'm a designer (make things usable and pretty) by trade and limited in the in-depth technical aspects. I work with around 300+ devs and I always preach the gospel of Tezos. From my experience, you would be amazed at how many devs have not even looked into crypto...yet.
Today I had the 3rd individual start dabbling with some Tezos training sites and they asked me "Why hasn't a proposal been proposed to lower the roll size?". I don't have the answer, so... why hasn't there been? I've seen a lot of previous discussion months ago about lowering the roll size, but I don't believe anything came of it. If I remember correctly, some testing would be needed, but the roll size could be lowered considerably without any network issues (don't quote me and please correct me if I'm wrong).
All three of my co-workers are very interested in becoming bakers, but it is excessive to ask them to dish out $22,000 a piece. Also, at the rate Tezos is growing, entry will only become more difficult. Yes they could pool their money, but that's not preferred for numerous reasons.
I know we have some groups working on some amazing proposals for Tezos, but in the mean time, a group working on "smaller", needed, upgrades makes sense during these development phases.
TDLR: Whats holding Tezos back from lowering it's roll size? Network restraints? It is currently being worked on? Or has other work simply taken precedence?

With staking coming (eventually) to Ethereum, I think it’s wise for Tezos to preemptively maintain a competitive advantage over Ethereum. With the advent of staking on eth and the resultant inflation dropping to near zero, have any analyses been performed regarding the economic impact of a similar inflation adjustment on Tezos?

I have a question regarding staking rewards which I have been collecting for a long time now, loving it! Anyway I add to my balance monthly on top of the rewards. My question is let’s say I have 1000 Tezos staked and I’m receiving rewards for that amount, then a few months later I add some more to the same delegation will these new Tezos being factored in going forward for rewards immediately or is there an initial period similar to when you first stake (45days) before they are reflected into rewards. I hope that makes sense. Thanks
