Did you run your Daedalus application already? The delegation right now is very primitive.
The network will take 2 ADA as a deposit just one time and return once your delegation stopps.
You have to pay transaction fees every time you choose a new pool
Contact the stake pool operator for a better feedback and to make them happy or just stay pseudonymous
In Daedalus you will find a new tab: the ‘delegation center’. From here on you will see many stake pools like mine AHOLY.
The pools which have a stake bigger than 1 million produce ~1 block every 5 days and start to give consistent rewards.
Pools like mine with much less stake do produce blocks but much much more rarely. But the idea behind is that the total amount of rewards is the same after a year for the one who delegates.
As soon as multi-delegation feature is introduced in Daedalus, the team of Daedalus will give a proper introduction! Do not forget to support by then also small pools.
its a chance game, big pools = steady payments and small rewards, small pools = less chance but big payments eventually
if you can there’s no problem to have two wallets one for the big guy and another for the small guys.
the reason why to support the small pools is for decentralisation and not concentrate everything the same big already convoluted pools.
I have installed the web based daedalus … i cannot purchase ada here though … so i’ll have to find an exchange that supports ada and allows me to transfer it out into daedalus. I cannot send anything else into daedalus to trade it for ada.
Does all this sound correct to you ?
What exchange allows me to send ada to daedalus ?
