Intro - [ANDY] AndyStakePool
Participate in the future of global finance by operating and maintaining a high performance pool.
Pool ID: 30f9a4c529f89d60ad1bd1c33c0e13c20b347fec7cac794c557efcee
Pledge: 2.2 mil ADA
Fixed fee: 340 ADA (mandatory)
Variable fee: 2.5%
Website: AndyStakePool.com - will be improved in the next week
The goal is 24/7, 100% uptime. The pool is cloud based, leveraging Amazon’s proven network competency. The setup has a total of 4 active nodes - 2 relays, one core, one warm. The warm node is a running backup that is kept at current tip and can be quickly purposed to a relay or core node if need be. All nodes are geographically isolated throughout the USA and are externally monitored at all times.
I believe a pledge should be large enough to self-start the pool and show adequate ‘skin in the game’. 2+ mil ADA leaves a high probability of at least one block per epoch. This will ensure delegators do not go an epoch without receiving a reward. My pledge is the start - every delegator, regardless of size, gives an extra push. I am operating just one stake pool at this time. All SPO rewards will be reinvested as pledge for the next 50 epochs (to 267th) or up to saturation. I will be paying all pool expenses out of pocket for this period to show dedication to the project.
