Responsible Growth

Our growth strategy and operations are aligned with published stake pool operator guidelines.  New pools are established based on demand and only after existing pools exceed 80% saturation. In addition, our pool metrics are published below to increase transparency and support informed delegation decisions.

Core Values

Facilitate trust by clearly communicating growth strategy; minimize change to existing pools 

Maximize value delivered by providing enterprise-class services and infrastructure, domain expertise and quality support at a reasonable cost

Operate only a sufficient number of pools to accommodate delegator demand and minimize the need for frequent rebalancing

Align to stake pool operator guidelines by minimizing leverage and publishing relevant metrics; maximize transparency to support informed delegation decisions

Reinvest operating profits to decrease leverage and reward delegators for enabling our success

Fee Structure

Fixed fees are set at the protocol minimum of 340 ₳ per epoch.  (Deducted from the total pool rewards.)

 

Variable fees will remain 0% until 2022 and revert to 1-2% of rewards in QTR1 2022 to support ongoing operational and enterprise platform costs.
