Hi, my name is Juanma and I have recently started MAIN Pool in Hamburg, Germany. I intend to compete with other pools but, as I have observed, I might be too late to attract delegators… I came up with an idea to overcome this issue though. The first delegators will be considered as partners, and thus, their proportionate fix cost will be returned to them. DM me for more info.
Ticker / pledge / fixed fee / variable fee: MAIN / 110k / 340 / 1%
( I might increase the pledge but will not increase the margin )
( will be working on this as well )

Pool infrastructure: The reason I can cut on fix costs is the low-cost infrastructure I’m using: 2 Raspberry Pis model 4 (4gb and 6gb). Directly connected to my high speed internet connection I am able to run 4 relays without issues 24/7 with a minimum electric consumption.
Pool redundancy: what better to control your pool that your own hardware, duplicated and at your own house?
Operator experience: I am honestly quite new, have recently overcome the challenges of setting up the pool and now I’m hoping to being able to contribute to the community in any possible way.
As I briefly mentioned I think the initial barrier for a stakepool operator is tremendous, it is simply not possible to get millions of ADA staked to your pool. It doesn’t get any better in terms of infrastructure, my fix cost is minimum and thus I’m giving the best deal for early delegators to become partners and pay minimum costs. I hope I have catched your attention with this
