Cardano Foundation announces its delegation methodology - CLOSED

Ticker has no bearing on the delegation methodology. What matters is the unique ID in your pool’s information and no known group link to establish independence.

Interesting. I tried to get this answer for so many weeks. E.g. we’ve had 5% set from the very beginning. So to qualify - it has to be 4.9% then instead? Not sure why this couldn’t have been 5 or less to avoid such, but okay.

Group information would indeed simplify the process. Was just thinking of refining the process, if grouping might have been missed somehow. (I’d look for an example if I’d find one)

@danny_cryptofay I’m sorry if I missed that question. Whether it is <5% (less than) or <=5% (less than or equal) was a completely arbitrary decision. It could have been either one or the other, the important thing is that it is determined exactly.

Nah, I have asked someone from foundation on twitter and he said to come back to clarify. No worries.

How Does BBHMM stake pool get included in this? We were part of the ITN and had a pool up during the Shelly Hardfork.

  • Hold between ₳25,000 and ₳2mn as a pledge, We are at around 600,000
  • Operated by a stakepool operator that only runs one pool (difficult to verify but best effort attempt), Only 1
  • Have a normal operating cost of less than 5% variable rate, and a fixed rate of around ₳340,
    We are at 5% and 340
  • Does not have a high number of ada already staked (less than 5% saturation),
    We are around 1 million
  • Have validated blocks successfully in the past,
    We have 3 blocks now
  • Have not been delegated to by the Cardano Foundation in the last four rounds
    We have not

Good move, glad to see the Foundation continue support of community stake pools. :smiley:

I believe it is exactly as stated, i.e. “less than” and not “less than or equal to.”

Oh shoot. Thanks for that. Sorry I misread.

Perhaps next time the Cardano Foundation can take into consideration since when a stake pool is running?
Furthermore I advise the Cardano Foundation to check if the stake pool has his pledge fulfilled as both ABBA and SEGV are missing pledge. Which means delegators will not receive rewards if I remember correctly.
