Just want to ask is there any way we can stop any user from delegating fund to the pool? Is there any way to identify the bad actors in Cardano?
I don’t have an answer for you, but I’m curious to know how a bad actor could cause harm by delegating to your pool? Can you explain the situation?
There is no notion of good/bad stake addresses.
@XZact I can think of a case in which a super whale’s delegation made a pool oversaturated, luring away current delegators. Then right after that the super whale delegates somewhere else, leaving the pool with fewer delegators.
Yea I guess this could work, if it scares away loyal delegators. However, wouldn’t the pool owner benefit from the extra stake, and then things would re-balance after a few epochs once the whale moves on? Another consideration is with thousands of stake pools, this super whale could only attack one or maybe a couple at a time. A larger attack would be extremely expensive.
