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
- Coin Tourage
- Fractalide Pool
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 27.04.2018
Caution for new users: there are no “official” stake pools at this time. 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)
