Hi, [TOY] PandaPool says hello to everyone
I am a Taiwanese, and I have just stepped into the world of Cardano recently, and my mining pool has just been set up in Epoch 251 and started to operate.
I am an App Developer for Android and iOS App and have experience in setting up WordPress websites and PHP development. I have also researched some in the past.
The Ethereum Web3 smart contract related things, until recently, the market value of Cardano has risen to a high level, which made me unexpectedly want to study. Finally, I decided to participate in more Cardano-related matters by establishing a mining pool.
Although I have just established a mining pool, I am facing the problem of very low mortgage amount. This is what I have to work hard on. If other larger mining pool operators are able to help my little pandapool, I will be very thank you.
I will continue to share some Cardano information with people in Taiwan. I also plan to operate the Cardano node I currently set up for a long time, because I know that Cardano is a very good decentralized financial project.
I also plan to donate some to charities in need if the operation of the Cardano mining pool is rewarded or profitable. Sorry my pool english expression, hopefully it’s just beginning, and I will run Cardano Pool for a long time.
Finally I wanna thank those who have helped me solve the problem of setting up a mining pool. Pretty appreciate you.

Topology file update:
Regularly check the number of node connections and update the Topology JSON file to ensure that the nodes connected to the host are online and synchronizable.
Regularly check the CPU and RAM occupancy rate:
If it needs to be expanded in the future, it will increase.
