Many users have reported that their ADA rewards have disappeared!
There have been issues with a tool called DBSyncthat many Cardano tools and wallet providers rely on to display data about the blockchain. This data includes the rewards that a pool may generate for its delegates or the rewards for a particular wallet.
As a result of this bug, the data that is coming through sometimes needs to be recalculated or reimported into the database for the wallets to access.
What is DB Sync?
The purpose of Cardano DB Sync is to follow the Cardano chain and take information from the chain and an internally maintained copy of the ledger state. Data is then extracted from the chain and inserted into a PostgreSQL database. SQL queries can then be written directly against the database schema or as queries embedded in any language with libraries for interacting with an SQL database.
Once all the data is in a useable database, websites and third-party applications can easily tap into the information and display it in useful and creative ways.
Yoroi wallet: "Due to Protocol Update, the Rewards are Being Recalculated"
These updates happen from time to time and as a result, the rewards data disappears and reappears or is inaccurate and needs to be recalculated for accuracy.
For some periods, we had seen a delay of data from up to 3 days while the data syncs occurred.
Why Were the Yoroi Rewards Graphs Removed?
From a pool operator's point of view, having the rewards data missing from the pool's page or missing from your delegates rewards screens is detrimental to the pool. If the delegate isn't connected with the operator, the first assumption is that the operator has missed blocks or stuffed up the rewards for the pool, hence there are no rewards coming through.
Removing all the data together from the interface rather than showing incorrect data is a better situation for both the delegate and the pool operator.
