How to setup/build/run a Cardano stake pool.
I’m in the same process like you.
Personnally for the moment my entry points are:
- Stake Pool School - Stake pool course
- Building Cardano Node with nix — cardano-node Documentation 1.0.0 documentation
- cardano-node — cardano-node Documentation 1.0.0 documentation
- Building a node from source – IOHK Support
I have not gone into details yet. I think I have to finished the course in 1. , so as everything is clear.
The coincashew guide also has been cited several times in several post over the internet:
- Guide: How to build a Cardano Stake Pool - CoinCashew
- Update 1.24.2 to 1.25.1 for nodes configured with CoinCashew guide
I have not consulted it yet, but as said, some SPO seems to have based their configuration following this guide as reference. And do praise it.
I just fumble around the cli and scream at the error messages until it works. 6-year career still going strong
in same shoes, though i broke my keyboard during process.
Is it just me or all these guides are a bit outdated?
I would like to test it, following the Stake Pool Course, but I can’t pass through the very few first steps.
For instance Cabal is now at different version. Do you know how to find the current one?
Outdated ? These were my entrypoints, from my notes about where to start.
They are still relevant for me, for the moment. But I have only used SPO school and Build Cardano Node with Nix.
I’ll throw a look at the Cashew guide after. In case there is additional interesting info.
In the SPO school videos, they indicate git tag 1.15.0, whereas the software is currently at version 1.26.0 IIRC. This version number 1.15.0 is indeed outdated, but anyway all version, including the latest ones, are in the repository history. I think that’s indicated in the video that you should use the recent tag.
I cannot say anything about the build process made by hand, step by step.
Nonetheless, the way to build cardano-node using Nix is perfectly UP-TO-DATE according to me. Here the file is dated Feb 22:cardano-node/building-the-node-using-nix.md at master · input-output-hk/cardano-node · GitHub in the cardano repository
One slight difference with the guide is that I am not yet using the binary-cache to speed up the compilation.
Last time I used this guide, it was last week I think: the Node in question is currently running in front of my own eyes, right at the moment.
You probably want to create your own dedicated thread/question about the PRECISE point you are failing at, following which guide, at which step, with which error message, and the commands you have entered, which one were successful, if you want to get precise help.
hi guys !
I have a question !
in cardano official website in these address :
show profit of run new staking pool 790% in year !
is it true ?
Off IOHK’s site there is this for minimum requirements while the coincashew has a slightly beefed up recommended future-proof stake pool hardware setup: coincashew.com’s guide-how-to-build-a-haskell-stakepool-node recommended-future-proof-stake-pool-hardware-setup. Is that what is recommended?
Some have argued that one should wait before running the latest release? As I post the latest release is 1.27. Is this safe to run? How many days after release should one wait before upgrading?
There was some discussion of getting any sources of nodes from either test nets or main nets and just “throwing them in”, I have read about topology updaters. When you are starting out where can you get a good initial set of nodes to talk to? What’s a good source for topology updating?
Is this the best place to start? (assuming search of the various forums didn’t work)

Is there a problem just running mainnet?
Hello every body,
I’m doing the stake pool course and i have a problem. When i launch the following command I have an error that I don’t understand:
cardano-cli transaction build-raw

Usage: cardano-cli transaction build-raw [–byron-era | --shelley-era |

Build a transaction (low-level, inconvenient)
Can somebody help me please?
