I’d like to introduce Akira Stake Pool (AKIRA).
As a long time Cardano supporter, I’ve decided to shift the focus of my software development business to become part of the Cardano ecosystem.
We are a collection of software developers and IT professionals based in Canada, with over 15 years experience in the healthcare and public safety sectors.
We believe in the Cardano project and want to support the decentralization of the network, even if we are just a small stake pool operator at this time.
In the future, here is what we envision:
- Running our Stake Pool for years to come (24/7/365) - planning over a 10 year period
- Building Smart Contracts and Dapps

To contribute to the decentralization of the Cardano Network and become part of the ecosystem, to eventually build smart contracts and dapps. The Stake Pool is ground zero for us. An entry point into the ecosystem.
Our Stake Pool is made up of 3 Nodes - 2 relays and 1 block producer. Although we are Canadian, we have opted to host in a cloud data center in Germany (for high performance, uptime/redundancy and cost reasons). Relays are configured with DNS names and can be switched out if needed. All servers have snapshot backups and can be easily restored if anything goes wrong. The servers run the latest version of ubuntu and have all been hardened to the enth degree. No extra ports or services added more than the bare minimum to ensure the most secure environment possible.
All 3 servers have:
- 4 vCPU’s
- 16GB RAM
- Plenty of SSD disk space
- 400Mbps connection w/unlimited bandwidth
Thank you for your attention and for supporting us in this journey. Please consider supporting a small pool and delegating some ADA to AKIRA.
