Cardano staking refers to the process of holding and delegating Cardano (ADA) cryptocurrency to a staking pool in order to help secure the Cardano network and earn rewards for doing so. Staking rewards are distributed periodically to ADA holders who participate in staking.
When you delegate your ADA to a staking pool, it remains in your wallet at all times. You can use your ADA for transactions or transfer it to another wallet whenever you like, and there is no locking period or minimum staking duration.
Delegating your ADA to a staking pool only gives the pool the right to use it for the purpose of validating transaction (producing blocks). It doesn't transfer ownership of your ADA to the pool or lock it up in any way. You retain full control and ownership of your ADA, and you can stop delegating to a staking pool at any time.
Cardano staking rewards depend on multiple factors like active stake, luck, infrastructure, fees...
As pool operators, we control two of them: pool infrastructure and fees.
Pool fee is set at 0%, so all rewards go to delegators, despite the option for pool operators to retain a percentage.
Pool's high-availability architecture is designed for exceptional performance, even during heavy loads and failures, with minimal downtime.
Round-the-clock monitoring and technical support are essential to safeguard the pool from disruptive events.
In order to stake your ADA, you will need to hold it in an Cardano compatible wallet like:
A Cardano light wallet available as browser extension for Chrome, Edge, Brave and Opera or mobile app in
App Store (iOS) or
Play Store (Android).
A browser extension and web-app light wallet. It is designed to be user-friendly, with a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy to send, receive, and stake your ADA.
