Cardano Stake Pool
Help keep the Cardano network decentralized by staking with small single stake pool operators! We use the profit from the pool to increase our pledge, pay for the servers, plant trees, donate to Oceana and create new content & products for you to enjoy!~

What is Cardano 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 a 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 delegate to Anti.biz Stake Pool? +-
1) Once you have the wallet, click on the Cardano symbol on the left hand side:
What else do I need to know about staking with you? +-
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? +-
Currently our monthly cost breakdown is as follows:
- Block Producer Server $73
- Relay 1 $73
- Backup/tax $50
The chart above was our old cost, now roughly we are paying about $1700-1800 per year to run two servers. We are also looking into running a bare bones server which will cut cost significantly. We will be planting trees and donating to Oceana monthly to offset our carbon emission. In the future we would like to figure out a way to run the main block producing server on solar power.
What hardware is your pool running on? +-
We operate on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Our servers can scale as we grow. (Meaning we can upgrade the hard drive space, memory, CPU and other parameters to make it run better & more efficiently!) This of course will cost substantially more money, so we will make the necessary upgrades as our pool grows! Currently were running:
2x 16 gigs of ram / 4 core processor / 120 gig SSD (Block, Relay 1) (t3.xlarge) **in the future we would like to move to ARM based processors to save money when they're better supported.
We are using monitoring tools that notify us if there are any problems with the servers as well, so we can fix any problems that may arise. (usually in a matter of minutes, so that there is no downtime)
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 were 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 ₳1100 ADA on average, 340 is subtracted, the variable fee is 0%. So a 0% fee from 1100-340=760 would be ₳0 ADA. Of course if there are more blocks found that doesn't mean we keep getting 340, most of it will goto the delegators.
The left over amount ₳760 would go to the delegators of the pool. So every block we find together will be split amongst the stake pool operator and stake holders. So if there is 100 delegators delegating 10,000 ADA each will get ₳7.6 per epoch (every 5 days) This number changes based on how much is currently being staked on the network. And how much % of your stake in comparison to the total staked. You can get a better calculation than this rough estimate by using this calculator: https://www.cardanowithpaul.com/calculators/ada-staking-rewards-calculator/
Why do you only have ₳0 pledge? +-
Pledge can be a good indicator of trust between stake holders and a stake pool operator. We currently are not pledging any ₳ADA at the moment till hardware wallets are better supported.
Don't worry a low pledge 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!
**As soon as the hardware wallet is setup this pledge will be bumped up.
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.
