Why should users check out your pool?BKV Pool is a Cardano stake pool managed by a single operator dedicated to providing secure, reliable, and sustainable staking services. We also have our own MEME token BKV minted on the Cardano blockchain just a few days after Maria’s hard fork, so it is one of the oldest meme tokens in the Cardano blockchain (which can be traded on the decentralized exchange Minswap). We also develop some monitoring tools for a Cardano node together with some of my colleagues and planning to deploy soon some Cardano Web3 applications that will use our node as an entry point to the Cardano blockchain.
