As more and more people around the forum gets interested in running a staking pool or just staking their ADA, I have put together a list of known staking pool projects. The goal is to bring the developers together, share ideas and to give the community an overview of the state of staking pool projects.
List of staking pools:
- Ada Eco
- ADA North Pool
- Coin Tourage
- DApp360 Pool
- Fractalide Pool
- Pegasus Pool
- X Pool Cardano
It is likely that this list is already incomplete. If you are developing your own pool or you know of any other pool than those listed above, please post a link in a reply. I’ll be updating this post with the new links so all the links are on top.
EDIT: List has been updated on 27/11/19 by @Josh_Munday
Caution for new users: there are no “official” stake pools. None of these pools are registered with Cardano or IOHK and some of these may ultimately not make the cut or pan out for whatever reason when the registration process actually takes place. There are a lot of details and criteria that is still up in the air and everyone is waiting for more information on what is required to run a staking pool. Do not send Ada or Bitcoin or whatever to anyone claiming to be a Cardano stake pool. When staking happens, it will be done completely within the Daedalus wallet. No Ada will leave your wallet. There will be a list and info of each of the registered pools and you will choose one from that list to delegate your stake all from within Daedalus. (thanks to @regsanman to pointing this out)

As this is a popular topic, and with more users wanting their stake pools added to this list. I will, therefore, keep tabs on this thread as best I can and will add new pools as users reach out and contact me. If you want your pool added to the list then please tag me in a comment below with the relevant name and/or website for your pool.
As a side note, this is not an official list nor does this list reflect a full and complete picture of the staking pools available to stake with. Nor in any way is this list selecting the best pools to stake with. I urge everyone to do their own research into the pools they want to stake with rather than ‘selecting a random pool’ from the list.
Also, it is important to note safety… I have linked the thread by the foundation to their safety series, I strongly advise anyone to take a read of this so that they stay safe during this time. Here
