Great lot of nice questions
Well, as they created the saturation levels and made them low I`m sure there is room for personal nodes, as long as the performance is maintained I am certain things will be fine and there will be enough room for everyone.
As evident there is a ton of interest for staking ADA, this is not hype, this is the result of brilliant engineering, hard work, and a vision where we the community can relate to, Cardano is something I really resonate with, and with the application of game theory we have an incentive to act upon our personal interest while that`s aligned with the best interest of the Cardano ecosystem.
This creates a win-win situation and while large exchanges will certainly have massive pools, as there is a level of saturation, people will be earning far less in this way and personally in my opinion, it would be foolish to stake with such large players, because
- Decentralization is not promoted in this way.
- Not our keys, not our coins. (One of the unique selling points of the blockchain revolution)
- We would earn less.
Key factors, which will influence people
s way of thinking and acting when it comes to staking Cardano, I think its brilliant!
Also, if you would prefer to delegate or run a staking pool, it all depends on you, me and everyone, if you have the capabilities and wish to run one, I don`t see why not.
I`m not an expert, but the information about how many pools, 1000 has been the answer, even though I am certain there will be so much more interest than that amount.
Good luck & happy staking!
