Question re: pool size and the "little guy"

Sorry if this a dumb question, but it’s something I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around.

So correct me if I’m wrong, but there will be a limited pool size that will continue to grow epoch over epoch. What happens to the pools that are not in the top 150? Do they get rejected and thus produce no rewards or are their rewards just lower?

There is no such thing like a “limit”. 150 is just the number of pools that could exist without that any of those pools get saturated if every pool has the same number of delegated ada.

As @Zyroxa says there is no upper limit on the number of pools and the lower limit is only an economic incentive where pools get reduced rewards when they saturated.


Super helpful information!! Thank you both for clearing that up for me.
