Node count went From 39 to 49：
The day before the latest governance vote, the project for proposal NIP355 went live and within one day, the number of nodes increased from 39 to 49. With this new rule, when 21 consensus nodes are selected, the last node is randomly generated from 51 candidate nodes and is called a lucky node. This results in both new and low ranked nodes to be more often selected as a consensus node.
8 node meetings：
Since March 31, 2020, there have been a total of 8 meetings with the English and Chinese node operators and attracted 16 participants in one meeting.
Views by the node operators were expressed about the governance processes and proposals. Meeting overviews can be viewed at community.nebulas.io.
50% approval rating:
While the total number of proposals was smaller during this last governance cycle,the quality of proposals have improved with the help of the Nebulas Technical Committee. In addition, the proposal NIP293 went into effect which eliminated the abstain votes from the calculation. As a result, 50% of the proposals were approved!

We thank the community for their initiative and also thank the nodes for their contribution to community governance. The PoD governance vote is only the beginning and the next step will require more human effort to get good proposals off the ground.
Any new ideas are welcome to join the discussion at community.nebulas.io or present your proposals at go.nebulas.io. A PoD governance vote is organized each governance cycle (approximately one month) to make decisions on submitted proposals and projects.
