Supporting Charity

Clean Water Stake Pool, a mission driven pool that donates 10% of pool profits to NGO clean water initiatives that help provide over 785 million people with access to clean water - supporting their health, education and economic vitality.
 

Decentralized Autonomy

While cloud-based stake pools are important and are often the only feasible option for a stake pool operator, bare-metal servers improve the decentralization of the network and have more autonomy; Clean Water Stake Pool utilizes three bare-metal servers - a producing node in Germany, and relay nodes in France (1) and Canada (1).

Stake Pool Specs:

  • Intel Xeon E3-1230 Quad Core/8 Threads
  • 8 MB Intel® Smart Cache
  • 3.30 GHz Processor
  • 32 GB DDR4 DRAM
  • 500 Mbit Unmetered Uplink

Delegating to a Stake Pool

 
There are several factors to consider when delegating ADA to a stake pool -
 

 ROS: Large Stake Pools vs. Small Stake Pools

  • The Return on Staking (ROS) for large & small stake pools averages out.
  • Large pools produce fewer rewards each epoch.
  • Small pools produce larger rewards every few epochs

Stake Pool Pledge

 
The amount of pledge delegated to a stake pool can be an indication of the stake pool operator's commitment; additionally, the pledge amount can have an effect on a pool's block-production and ranking. Many suggest the minimum pledge should be 250k.
 

Stake Pool Margin

A stake pool margin has little effect on delegation rewards, e.g. - the difference between a 2% and a 3% margin for 500 ADA in equitable rewards is only 5 ADA; always consider the hosting environment, the pool mission, and the pool pledge when delegating to a stake pool.
