Declared pledge pool not met

Hi. So I just created my pool yesterday using Coincashew’s guide (mnemonic method):

As you might see, I’m getting warnings about pledge pool not met hence no rewards.

I’m not really sure what am I missing here.

  1. Pool is supposed to start with 500 ADA on wallet. I have 505. I am assuming this is my pledge. Is this correct?
  2. Apart from that 505 ADA on pool’s wallet, do I have to actually have another 500 somewhere else? if so, where? Do I have to delegate the pool’s wallet balance on the pool itself? I’m so confused
  3. Some friends already delegated a higher amount than the one on pledge, do they need to do something else?
  4. What’s the deal with the “balance” under rewards section on adapools? Why I can’t see this on Yoroi’s balance? I did a transaction where I sent some ADA to the pool’s wallet. I noticed my wallet balance did not update, but I do see the transactions if I execute:

cardano-cli query utxo
–address $(cat payment.addr)
TxHash TxIx Amount

  1. Do I have to wait for something until the end of current epoch?

I know I’m close, but I think I need a last push. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to wait a bit until the delegations are assigned. 1-2 epochs.

Adapools says the pledge is met, so next epoch it should be fine.

U pledged 500 ADA but in the wallet u have only ~26 ADA (remember that 500ADA gone from the wallet when u registered the pool- u will receive back when u will retire it)

So I just… wait?

How exactly do I do that? sorry

U must send another 500 ADA to the wallet address or modify the pledge (less than 26 ADA)


Thanks for all your help. Problem has been solved by sending 500 ADA to pool wallet.
