Core Values

Facilitate trust by clearly communicating growth strategy; minimize pool parameter changes 

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

Operate a single stake pool to support Cardano decentralization

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

Fee Structure

Fees are automatically deducted from the pool rewards each epoch, prior to delegator distribution.

 

Fixed fees are set at the protocol minimum of 340 ₳ per epoch.  Variable fees are currently set to 1%.  An increase to no more than 2.5% is being considered after Cardano parameter changes.  These fees support continued service growth, operational expenses, and enterprise platform costs.
