The Daedalus 2.4.0 release continues to improve the delegation user experience. It brings a saturation indicator for stake pools, to show how close to saturation a pool is getting. It also adds a potential rewards estimation based on the amount of stake you intend to delegate. There’s a new table view for easier stake pool comparison. And to help you better understand the key metrics, we’ve added tooltips with explanations for all stake pool attributes.
Sortable stake pool table view
A new sortable table comparison view has been added for stake pools. This means that you can switch easily between grid and table view modes using the two switch buttons on the stake pool search.
Stake Pool Ranking Improvements
Improvements have been made in this release to how stake pools are ranked. The ranking of pools is based on the potential rewards of each pool and the list of pools is ordered by the potential rewards that can be earned. Consequently, ranking is not applied to pools where potential rewards equal zero.
A new Potential rewards field has been added to the stake pool details dialog that shows the rewards that could be accrued per epoch. These potential rewards depend on the value that is selected by the stake slider, which represents the amount of stake you intend to delegate.
A pool saturation indicator is now provided which provides a visual representation of the saturation level of the pool. The bar shows the current percentage rate of saturation and provides visibility up front from within the tile and within the detail view. The bar is green for pools which are up to 100% saturated, yellow for pools which are between 100 and 105%, orange for pools which are 105 to 110% saturated, and red for the pools which are more than 110% saturated. You should avoid delegating to oversaturated pools since pools stop earning more rewards with increases in stake when they go above the saturation level.
Explanations for stake pool attributes
Tooltips with explanations have been added to the primary stake pool attributes on the stake pool details dialog. These explanations will help you to navigate through these fields and provide details and context on terms such as live stake, saturation, rank, pool margin, pledge, cost per epoch, produced blocks, and potential rewards.
Wallet migration leftovers
In some cases, a very small portion of leftover funds were not migrated from a Byron wallet to a Shelley wallet, depending on the combination of transaction inputs and outputs. This happened because small amounts of ada could not be transferred due to a minimum restriction limit of 1 ADA in place and in rare cases the transaction input and output combinations were still too small to process and remained in the source wallet. Daedalus now displays these leftover amounts in the source wallet when you are transferring funds. A Leftovers field is displayed on the Transfer Funds dialog.
Syncing animation on wallet dropdown
The issue with the display of the syncing animation during the redemption process has been fixed in this release. This visual syncing is now shown on the Redeem Rewards dialog for the wallet dropdown.
