If you pledge a certain amount lets say 100k ADA and you want to take it out to sell at the peak of a bull run to take profit, if you do this and are not meeting the pledge criteria anymore, does this mean that the staking pool can not mint blocks anymore?
What penalty does occur?
If pledging simply affects the amount of reward you get, will not meeting the pledge simply give you slightly less rewards?
For example lets say you registered a stake pool with some settings like this (100k ada pledge):
cardano-cli stake-pool registration-certificate \ --cold-verification-key-file cold.vkey \ --vrf-verification-key-file vrf.vkey \ --pool-pledge 100000000000 \ --pool-cost <POOL COST PER EPOCH IN LOVELACE> \ --pool-margin <POOL COST PER EPOCH IN PERCENTAGE> \ --pool-reward-account-verification-key-file stake.vkey \ --pool-owner-stake-verification-key-file stake.vkey \ --pool-owner-stake-verification-key-file owner2_stake.vkey \ --mainnet \ --pool-relay-ipv4 <RELAY NODE PUBLIC IP> \ --pool-relay-port <RELAY NODE PORT> \ --single-host-pool-relay STRING \ --metadata-url https://git.io/JJWdJ \ --metadata-hash <POOL METADATA HASH> \ --out-file pool-registration.cert
If I move funds from my staking address that was used for pledging as an owner what negative effect will this have? Most importantly does it nullify my chance of winning any blocks from now on?
