What Is Cardano ?

stakepool

Cardano is a decentralized blockchain platform focusing on developing smart contracts and building a connected and decentralized system.

Its unicity comes from its peer-reviewed scientific research and its community.

We think that focusing on market data is not relevant when speaking about Cardano but being part of a driven, open-minded scientific community is more important.

Frequently Asked Questions

Driven by our passion for the Cardano ecosystem, Ara StakePool aims to provide an easy way to create a passive income and support the stability of the Cardano network. Indeed, by delegating your ADA to our stake pool, you will increase our pool's chances of producing blocks and when blocks are produced, the pools earn rewards that are then paid out to all our pool contributors.
Additionally , delegating to our pool will help us grow our Ara Donation Fund which intent to give back to different types of charities without charging you any additional costs as 10% of our pool rewards are automatically allocated to this fund.

Staking is the process of actively participating in transaction validation (similar to mining) on a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain such as Cardano.
Cardano staking operates every "epoch" (i.e. every 5 days) and the rewards for this process are auto-generated by the protocol itself and are not managed by the stake pool operators.
Indeed, those rewards come from the transaction fees and/or the monetary expansion (minting of ADA) from the creation of a block.

The overall annual return on ADA should be around 5% as per current protocol parameters. The amount of ADA you can earn is not fixed, it depends greatly on the following factors:
  • Amount of ADA staked
  • Performance of the stake pool
  • Percentage of fee the stake pool charges

You can use the rewards calculator to get an idea of how much you will earn in rewards. It’s important to note that the calculator produces only reward estimates and shouldn’t be considered definitive or a guarantee of reward amounts. Keep in mind that the minimum requirement for staking is 10 ADA. Please note that an additional 2 ADA deposit and ~0.17 tx fee are also required when delegating for the first time.

For any change in delegation, the rewards are reflected after 4 epoch transitions (15-20 days). For example, if you staked in epoch X, your first reward will show up at the start of X+4. After the initial wait time, you can expect to receive rewards at the end of every epoch (5 days).

Yes. After you have delegated your stake to a particular stake pool, the rewards you earn are automatically staked to the pool as part of your delegation.
This goes true for any new funds received from the wallet as well. Any balance change in the wallet will be automatically captured as part of the snapshot and incur updated rewards after 15-20 days.

Pledging means that a pool operator/owner stakes all or part of their ADA to their own pool.
This is what encourages the growth of a healthy ecosystem and helps decentralize the Cardano Blockchain, as it prevents a single organisation from creating an unlimited amount of pools and performing a 51% attack.
A higher pledge gives more incentives for the pool operator/owner.
