Technical update regarding lottery

  1. Every epoch, we have 3 to 7 winners depending on the saturation. To determine M winning numbers for Epoch N, we use block ids of the first M blocks of Epoch N+1. For example, for Epoch 319, we will have 3 winners. Their numbers on the list will be determined by the first 3 blocks of Epoch 320, which will start in about 5 days. The block ids may be found, for example, here: https://explorer.cardano.org/en
  2. Each block id is treated as a hexadecimal number. To find the corresponding winner, take the remainder from dividing this number by the number of participants and add 1 to the result. For the sake of example, suppose the second block of Epoch 320 has an id 44e9a78a126e44c376cd8d5f51ec794fe07562c66826c7b95e3e0daf42cbca73. Then the 2nd winner goes under the number 52.
