KIP-49 Parameter Updates (June 2022)

I propose to update the parameters in a number of courts.

Motivation:

These parameters were generated with the following calculators:

Calculator Mainnet

Calculator Gnosis Chain

using the following set of estimations and assumptions about required juror effort, etc:

Estimations

Most of these changes are just updating for changes in crypto-prices and gas; in particular the calculator attempts to make sure that jurors will be properly incentivized as long as they can reliably cast a vote at a gas price of <= 65 gwei, and that even in severe gas environments of up to 120 gwei, an average coherent juror should receive a reward that at least covers the gas.

However, I also propose to reduce the jurorsForCourtJump in the Technical court from 63 to 31. With the current pool of stakers in this court, the extra appeal round that one has with 63 jurors versus 31 is unlikely to significantly change the composition of the jurors drawn. If this proposal is adopted, the new jurorsForCourtJump would be in line with courts such as Non-technical and Humanity that have comparable activity. If this is particularly controversial, we can potentially split this off into a different proposal.

Then on Ethereum mainnet, I propose:
