I’m curious about the number of people who might feel they’d like to know who is behind a stakepool. Would you be more likely to delegate to a pool if you know who’s running it, or would it make no difference?
- Prefer to know real world identities
- Don’t mind if owners are anonymous
This is an interesting Poll @RobJF.
I’m more likely to pick a stakepool if I know the owner, more so I don’t pick a pool owned by organisations like exchanges. I think it’s also a good idea to support stakepools that are not run by the Cardano entities.
I know who I will be staking with, to begin with at least. However, I probably wouldn’t really mind if a stakepool has low fees and 100% uptime.
Not all of them, but the most influential.
Sorry Rodrigo but I’m not sure what you mean, could you expand a little?
Do you mean you’d want to know who the owners are of the most ‘influential’ (top rated) pools?
In general, I’d be fine and happy with the pool’s health stats and let the reputation system speak for itself.
It seems from this pool that a good mix of pools are generally welcome!
I agree with Rodrigo on this too
It would be better to know who is running the stake pools, but people have the right to protect their identity
I tried to make it clear this is about personal preference, whether owner anonymity would affect your decision to use a particular pool. So not about what you think would be good for the ecosystem. I was hoping the poll might help pool ops decide whether or not to reveal their identity.
If I had a pool I’d probably remain anonymous. It’s a dangerous world.
The ownership and pledge is not always coming from the public figure of a pool. That’s our solution anyway.
Nevertheless all things are related. The identity of an entity moving a pool , whether living or CORPS , is irrelevant when the outcome is found wanting.
