Cardano Staking Visualization

Some of you may have seen this over on reddit, thought I’d put it up here as well:

Interactive site to visualize relay density and staking density here.

Video explanation of how to use the tool here.

Explanation of the plots:

  1. Relay locations around the world, larger and ‘bluer’ relays are part of pools with a larger # of relays
  2. Relay density: brighter cells have more relays. Choose a pool with infrastructure in a less dense region to make Cardano more resilient to infrastructural failure.
  3. Stake density: cells that are more purple have a large amount of ADA delegated TO them FROM delegators. Delegating to a pool operating in a less dense region to secure the network.

This is a really cool idea! Well done

If you are thinking of expanding I think a good addition would be to show connections between nodes with lines… to shows who is connect to who
