Cardano node [version 0.8.17]
APP staking pool has a margin fee of only 2%! No other fees. ADA Point Pool staking pool fee is one of the lowest among professional and high quality Cardano staking pools.
Our staking pool is LIVE. Search for the ticker "APP" or "Ada Point Pool" in your Daedalus or Yoroi wallet.
ID of the APP pool is aeb2a8584c15e4272fd2b9141f77fb5e3da633506e08f6a8097e41176e6470b1. If you need some help with staking see our instructions for Daedalus or instructions for Yoroi.
Overall goal of our pool is that people have a HIGH QUALITY / LOW FEE pool to delegate to which provides max return on investment (ROI) every EPOCH. We also spread knowledge about the whole Cardano ecosystem.
Any money that will be a surplus, and not used maintaining the servers, will go into developing Emurgos' Yoroi Cardano wallet and some other custom tools that we are planning.
Currently we are mining ~ 97% (weekly avg) of the blocks which is among the highest of all pools! Consistent block creation is crucial to higher overall rewards for our users. ROI is well above the overall average of all the pools and should further increase with new versions of Cardano node software.
Our servers are currently in Germany, Europe.
The servers are virtualized and hardware is added only on a need to basis. Therefore we can pass all the savings on to our users. Because of virtualization if the need arises for a different location or upgraded hardware we can quickly do that without any downtime.
We are a group of professionals with decades of programming experience. We are interested in functional programming, web programming and science in general.
First staking network - incentivezed testnet went live 16 December, 2019. Our "Incentivized testnet" APP node has been live live from 15 December, 2019. We were running a beta version of the node (nightly build) before for server testing purposes.
Staking is a process where ADA holders delegate their ADA to a staking pool. It enables ADA holders who do not have the skills or desire to run a full node to be part of the network and be rewarded proportionally based on the amount of staking that is delegated.
There is NO security risk for the user as you are not sending any funds to our pool, just delegating your account.
You can calculate how much ADA you will get with the official Cardano staking calculator.
