I know a lot of people are looking for pools to delegate to atm, including me, so I’ve decided to share the research I’ve done for myself so far (it’s incomplete and unreliable, so check for yourselves ).
My own priorities when choosing a pool op (these are not requirements, but preferences) -
- Support decentralization and Cardano’s values. Actively contributing to the community.
- Pool reliability, performance, and fees.
- Ran a pool on the ITN.
I’m only sharing my personal, partial, flawed impressions, no recommendations included (also, I’ve talked to some of these operators, but am not affiliated with any).
So here we go (no particular order) -
|Ticker||ITN ROS||Mainnet Var. Fee (pooltool)||Op Geo||Website|
*- Less than 100 blocks on the ITN.
Don’t go for the saturated ones .
I hope all the details are correct, and please let me know if you spot any errors.
Hope this will help somebody .
EDIT: Added several pools and decided to introduce a rule for this post:
Only individuals not affiliated with a staking pool should propose new additions.
I think that will be more in the spirit of my original post. Thank you!
