So pools retire, they do not keep going?

A pool operator can retire their pool. This can happen for many reasons. Maybe it was more difficult than they thought to run, too expensive to run a server full time without a return because they are not minting blocks etc… They would retire instead of abandon because there is a 500 ADA registration fee that you get back when you retire the pool. Pools that retire do not generate returns. If you are delegated to a retired stake pool than you won’t get any rewards either. It’s best to keep up to date with the status of your stake pool.
