Today we completed the redelegation of the Cardano Foundation Wallets. It has been over a year since the new delegation strategy to support the Architects of the Future has been implemented.
In this round, we aimed to simplify the application form by removing numerous questions that were previously required. Instead of requesting extensive details from the SPOs about their pool, we only asked for their pool ID in bech32 format. We then obtained the remaining necessary information directly from the Cardano blockchain by utilizing the Koios API.
A brief overview of the statistics in this round:
- We received 250 valid applications.
- We evaluated them manually and checked all the information they provided. We found builder tools, open-source projects, closed-source projects, many pull requests, CIP contributions, educational content, whole communities around projects, and many other contributions and support to the growth of the Cardano Community. We appreciate what these pools are doing and would like to give these 93 pools honorable mentions here. (see list below)
- We’ve recognized 66 valid applications as exceptional contributions . Check out the list below. (Note: Pools that would be oversaturated have already been excluded from this list)
- We did a random draw and delegated to 45 pools. Visit pool.pm to get a real-time representation of the delegated wallets.
Congratulations to all! A big thank you to everyone who participated, even if you didn’t make it onto one of the lists this time. Stay tuned, as we’ll be opening a new application form in June for the next round.
A special shout-out to the 93 pools that received honorable mentions in this round — keep up the fantastic work in supporting the growth of the Cardano Community:
