Hello Cardano Community!
I would like to introduce Valhalla Pool [VLHLA] - Cardano Pool protected by Viking Gods!
Variable fee: 340 ADA (Minimum)
Fixed Fee: 1%
Pool ID: 29889ecc8151e5a93fcd321cd905eee0f50c8364273550205058bfe8
Contact: Telegram Channel and Twitter
Valhalla pool runs on 2 (block producer and relay) Linux servers in
Google Cloud platform each equipped with 8GB of RAM and 2 vCPU.
Maximum internet bandwidth is 10Gbps. The plan is to upgrade this
setup if it’s become necessary.
We keep backup images of both servers and if needed we can spin them
up very quickly. This of course also applies to pool
data/keys/certificates which are backed up. The pool uses a hardware
wallet to store its pledge. Servers are monitored for resource
utilization. Once the pools starts producing blocks on regular basis
we plan to add another relay to the setup for extra redundancy.
The pool operator is an Engineer with over 10 years of experience in
the IT industry and 5 years experience in network load balancing/DDOS
solutions and web application security.
Why should users check my pool?:
The reason we believe in Cardano is because it’s unique peer reviewed
academic approach. As and IT engineer in my daily job I have witnessed
all kinds of issues (including security breaches) with the code that
is not properly validated/tested. Cardano is different and doesn’t
follow this ‘deliver fast and fix later’ methodology. We believe it’s
even more important when it comes to cryptocurrencies which are
supposed to act as a payment network after all!
Valhalla pool mission is decentralization of the Cardano network. To
achieve this goal we joined the Single Pool Alliance and we won’t
start another copy of the pools when it becomes saturated. We believe
that multiple pools that are run by the same pool operators are bad
for decentralization. We also try to help the Cardano community by
preparing short guides/translations and answering users questions on
social platforms (Twitter/Reddit/Telegram).
