Intro - [ANDY] AndyStakePool

Participate in the future of global finance by operating and maintaining a high performance pool.

Pool Info:
Ticker: ANDY
Pool ID: 30f9a4c529f89d60ad1bd1c33c0e13c20b347fec7cac794c557efcee
Pledge: 2.2 mil ADA
Fixed fee: 340 ADA (mandatory)
Variable fee: 2.5%
Website: - will be improved in the next week

Pool Setup:
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.

Congratulations on getting your pool up and running! Good luck to you


I’m happy to announce AndyStakePool just minted it’s first block.

Block: 4711537 - 3b17b05a5944ecbe8d694a64c2a3a5b421d768626c17c47322545e9d5478dcae


I just lowered the pool margin to 1%. This is a more competitive rate and will hopefully attract delegators.
