The Cardano Community is full of individuals who go above and beyond to bring a little something extra to the table. We want to celebrate these individuals and the projects they are fostering, so please read on to hear the story of “Cardano on the Rocks” and the man behind it all!
We met up with Cardano Ambassador Markus Gufler (@werkof ) in London earlier this year where he gave us a quick preview into his “Cardano on the Rocks” project. Rock Pi’s are a Single Board Computer (SBC) in an ultra-small form and Markus has revisioned them into energy-efficient, reliable stake pools for the Cardano network.
Packaged in Cardano-branded casing, these portable devices can run a node for 24 hours as a low-cost, energy-efficient option for setting up a stake pool. Besides constructing these devices that have gone through many iterations, Markus has also created a step-by-step guide for other users like yourself to set one up with the Cardano Jormungandr code.

And if you’re interested in setting up a ‘Cardano on the Rocks’ and running a Rock Pi stake pool, you can also find a new assembling guide: https://edu.clio.one/lessons/cardano-on-the-rocks/lessons/physical-assembling/
This has been an arduous journey for Markus who devoted to this project and in making Cardano better for its community. Read about how ‘Cardano on the Rocks’ came to be and the ups and downs of his adventure, in the 'Short Historical Recap’ forum post.
