        To start delegating to the Anti.biz Cardano stake pool we recommend the Daeladus wallet https://daedaluswallet.io/ which is a full node, or the light wallet Yoroi https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/yoroi/ffnbelfdoeiohenkjibnmadjiehjhajb?hl=en-US 

Make sure you keep your 24 word seed protected & safe. We recommend using a Trezor Model T hardware wallet: https://shop.trezor.io/product/trezor-model-t?offer_id=15&aff_id=7870&tiny_url=1

FAQ

 

Who or what is a Anti.biz ? +

        We are a streetwear/gaming brand focusing on designing clothes, games, but we also like creating 3D printed trinkets, digital artwork (NFTS) toys, gadgets, electronics, and more! We're planning skits, more photoshoots/videos as well in the future, so stayed tuned! We never really know what we will do next, so check us out on Twitter @antibiz_ or Instagram @anti.biz

What is Cardano delegation? +

        Please read over this guide https://cardano.org/stake-pool-delegation/

 

        In short you are pointing your wallet to our server which is known as a pool. When you delegate your Cardano/Ada you will get on average yearly return on average around 5%. There is no risk to you in doing this, and you can unstake your Cardano at anytime if you feel your asset growth is not where you want it. Although we appreciate anyone who stakes with us knowing their growth won't be that good until we start growing. Now that multi-pool delegation is possible we appreciate anyone that stakes any small amount of Cardano with us to help us start minting blocks. We will always be a single pool to help keep the Cardano ecosystem diversified. And we are always looking at ways to give back to improve our 🌎

How do I buy Cardano? +

        If you would like to buy Cardano check out the Crypto.com app, use our sign up code: https://crypto.com/app/j52xa3986j to sign up for Crypto.com Referral code="j52xa3986j" and we both get $25 USD if you stake CRO coin

 

We also recommend Bittrex https://bittrex.com/Account/Register?referralCode=NKJ-M45-0CG

Why should I delegate to your pool and not the bigger pools? +

        The bigger pools like Binance who just keep making more and more pools centralize Cardano to one major player. Delegating to smaller pools like ours keeps Cardano more decentralized. You should try to delegate to single pool operators who only run 1 pool, instead of many. This helps diversify the ecosystem, instead of having a monopoly on the pools by a select few. Click the link below to see pie graphs of who controls the majority of the Cardano network:

https://adapools.org/groups

Please read through the image below (the Cardano network is under threat by a monopoly on the pools, that's why its imperative to stake with small single pool operators like ourselves who will always only run 1 pool!)

How long do I have to wait until I see my first rewards? +

        Anywhere between 15-20 days. For any change in delegation, the rewards are reflected after 3 epochs. (5 days per epoch) Expect to see your rewards 2 epochs after the epoch that a block is found. So for example if you joined the pool at epoch 1,epoch 3 is when you should see rewards in your Cardano wallet. And if a block was found in epoch 3, you won't see your reward until epoch 5. 

How much ADA will I be able to earn? +

        Check out this calculator https://www.cardanowithpaul.com/calculators/ada-staking-rewards-calculator/ to determine your current rewards with us. Remember this is subject to change based on how much stake is currently staked with us. It takes about 30 days before ROA (return on assets) % updates. The % changes based on luck and other factors. The ROA %  is what you can expect over the year staking with us. This percentage will grow the more that people stake with us. A simple way to calculate the chance to find a block is to divide the total Cardano staked on the pool/1,000,000. This will give you a rough estimate of chance. So 300,000/1,000,000= 30% chance. Now there is 73 epochs in a year. 73x30%=21.9 rewards per year. This will even out to about 5% per year depending on how much total is staked on the pool. The more staked to a pool = more blocks found. Which will give a more stable ROS (return on stake %) Basically the more staked at a pool the better for the stake holders/delegators.

How do I delegate to Anti.biz Stake Pool? +

        We recommend storing your Cardano in the Daedalus wallet: https://daedaluswallet.io/ or the lightweight version called Yoroi wallet https://yoroi-wallet.com/#/ we recommend using a hardware wallet Trezor Model T to better secure your Cardano.

1) Once you have the wallet, click on the Cardano symbol on the left hand side:

2) Type in Skull & you will see our pool. Go ahead and click on the word/box SKULL
***Don't worry about the pool rank, this ranking system is still not a good determining factor of a quality pool.
3) Next click on "Delegate to this pool."

4) Click continue when it pops up.

5) Click continue to confirm the pool and which wallet you will be using.

6) Next confirm your delegation, type in your password. (there is a fee for delegating for the first time.)

7) Congratulations you are now a Anti.biz delegator/stake holder, thank you for supporting our vision and goals!

What else do I need to know about staking with you? +

        Just remember not to lose your 24 word seed that your given when setting up your wallet. This will restore your account/wallet if you forget your password. Make sure no one sees your 24 word seed, or they can steal your wallet. If you write it down on a piece of paper or some other method make sure it wont be lost or destroyed! Also check it periodically to make sure its not degrading and has become unreadable!

 

         We also recommend using a hardware wallet, one with a password is very good at securing your crypto like the Trezor Model T https://shop.trezor.io/product/trezor-model-t?offer_id=15&aff_id=7870&tiny_url=1

I haven't got any returns after staking with you, what's going on? +

        We are still a new stake pool, so we're relying on new delegators to delegate what little they can to help build up the pool till we reach 100-500K+ in total staked with our pool. At 50,000 4.84% chance 100K delegated that's 9.69% chance of finding a block, 500K is 48.43%, 1 Million is 96.86% a. There is also a luck factor involved which can help smaller stake pools like us find blocks.

       If you aren't getting your return you want, then you may want to stake with a bigger pool. But we appreciate anyone who sacrifices a small amount to keep staking with us while we grow.

What are your operating cost for running the stake pool? +

        We are currently running 2 servers from our business location in Philadelphia, PA. Right now our cost is only Electricity, server cost for the initial parts, internet, battery back up, etc. We may also have miscellaneous cost promoting/marketing the severs.

What hardware is your pool running on? +

        We are running 2 servers we built using:

SSUPD Meschlicious Mini ITX case x2 (white & black)

Gigabyte A520i AC motherboard x2

Teamforce T-FORCE Vulcan Z 32GB (2x16GB) x2

Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 1GB x2

AMD Ryzen 5 3500x 6 core x2

Crucial P1 500GB 3D NAND NVMe SSD x2

Seasonic FOCUS SGX-500 500W 80+ Gold SFX-L x2

Noctua NF-A12x25 x4

Noctua NH-L12 Ghost S1 x2

Sabrent M.2 2280 Rocket Heatsink SSD x2

Icepc PCI Expressx16 PCIe 3.0 30cm extension cable x2

https://newegg.io/2514ca8

These are connected to a stable internet/electricity & we have battery backups incase the power goes off. If all else fails, we can transition quickly to cloud based servers as backups!

What are your fees you charge for delegating to your pool? +

        It takes many hours set aside for running this pool, with a lot of studying to make it run as as efficient & secure as possible! Right now our variable fee is 0% which means we're not taking anything extra from your rewards! There is also a standard operating fee of ₳340 ADA that cannot be lowered by anyone, which comes out of the total rewards + the variable fee of 0%. Everything else goes to the stake holders/delegators!

        So lets say we find a block together that is ₳750 ADA on average, 340 is subtracted, the variable fee is 0%. So  ₳750-340=₳410 would be split between the delegators of SKULL pool.

        https://www.cardanowithpaul.com/calculators/ada-staking-rewards-calculator/ 

Why do you only have ₳10000 pledge? +

        Pledge can be a good indicator of trust between stake holders and a stake pool operator. We are currently pledging 10,000  ₳ADA which we believe is a good amount to pledge to show we have skin in the game.

Don't worry our pledge maybe lower than other pools, but it won't affect your rewards & we are using top of the line equipment/monitoring/security to ensure 99.9% up time, so our pool doesn't miss any blocks! We are working on growing into a very solid & reliable pool and with your help we will grow bigger & stronger!

If our servers go down at our business we will transition to servers on Amazon AWS till they are working, we already have those setup, so no need to worry.

How are you offsetting your carbon footprint? +

        We will be donating to Oceana, and planting trees to help reduce any energy waste we create while running our servers. In the future we would also like to find ways to support healthy bee populations.

In the future we would like to have our server run completely on solar power/battery backup Anti.biz is always looking for ways to reduce waste and help the planet, read more here.
