Situation during epoch 299 and after (End of the ISPO):
You CANNOT move between MELD pools anymore.
You CANNOT add more $ADA to your delegation at any time in order to get more $MELD rewards
You CANNOT move funds in and out of the wallet during an epoch. Anything that is taken out of the wallet stays out of rewards calculations
I have been delegating 1k $ADA since epoch 280.
If I add 500 more $ADA, I’ll have a total delegation of 1.5k $ADA
The rewards calculations will be made only on 1k $ADA
The extra 500 $ADA is ignored and no $MELD rewards are awarded for that
If at any point going in the future you take out for example 200 $ADA, you will get EPOCH REWARDS only on the remaining 800 $ADA even if you put the 200 $ADA back in the wallet.
⭐️ This is just affecting the 1 component of the rewards and that is EPOCH REWARDS. The BONUS REWARDS have no relation to this.
This DOES NOT mean that your $ADA is locked in any way
This DOES NOT mean that you will not get any rewards from the past
This DOES NOT mean that you won’t get any rewards going forward for your $ADA delegated
This DOES NOT mean that you lose your bonus
