Some Cool Pools!

Thank you for mentioning my pool!
Note that the spreadsheet I posted contains two sheets: “ITN” (with all the pools) and “ITN - Pools with at least 100 blocks minted” where statistical outliers have been filtered out

Thanks @timo89, I missed that. Post updated to reflect pools with <100 blocks on ITN.
Loved the sheet btw :wink: .

Updated with mainnet Var. Fees.

How about adding our pool to that list. CPX,
Also on ITN with good performance and values.

I know @bigpey has produced a video outlining all the different parameters and how knowining these can serve you well @rin9s, thx for sharing your thoughts. :vulcan_salute:

Hey @Ahmad_Alkilani, welcome to the forum!
I’m sorry, but I can’t add your pool to the list at this time because I don’t know it.

First steps to consider which can help the community get to know your pool -

  1. Posting on the " Stake Pool Introductions" category (there’s a nice guide for that).
  2. Add more info about the pool setup and its operators on the pool’s website.

Generally speaking I would be happy to make this a community thread, but I think only people who are not affiliated with any pools should endorse pools here, and not operators.

That’s my 2c, but like I said, this list is just to share my own personal inclinations. :pray::dove:


Added stake pool intro for CPX today. Thanks for your consideration :slight_smile:

Hello rin9s,

Great post! My pool Bloom meets all of your requirements. I just had a name change since the ITN, my ITN stakepool was called Pey ADA. I ran this pool since epoch 3 in the ITN.

Thank you guys so much for your interest! Here’s what I’m going to do,
I’ve added both CPX and BLOOM to the the list -

  • BLOOM - Because it really seems like the general profile of the pools I would choose to delegate with.

  • CPX - Because it seems to have the potential of being such a pool. Consider this as a vote of confidence @Ahmad_Alkilani, that you will treat the community respectfully and honor Cardano’s values as a pool op (I have faith you will).

From this point on however, I will only consider adding to the list -
Pools who are endorsed by someone unaffiliated with said pools, Kiva style.
I’m sure you understand. I really hope newcomers to the ecosystem would see the value in such a compilation.


Thanks for the vote of confidence @rin9s
Do you have enough details to pull up the ITN ROS or would you like some help with that?

Thanks again!

Thank you for adding me to the list, I do have those things that you requested.

Looks like GREEN pool is retired - happy to take their place

We’re new also and did not participate in ITN - our pool is small but it has a good setup operated by competent SPO - feel free to check us out.


Thanks for the heads up @ADABros!
You do seem like a cool pool, but no self promotions I’m afraid, just by reference. :pray:

Hi all,

Looking to delegate?
Ticker: STRM
Pool ID: 3b40156bab70f436f85a870d2da38021c44dd3b15a16ccf3a20424e2

STRM-4-ADA Staking Pool



Welcome to the forum @mav3r1ck!
There’s a “Pool Introductions” category actually, and you can create your own post under that category to intro your pool.

Let’s keep this thread tidy, thanks! And good luck with your pool!

Maybe include some type of longevity requirement instead of ITN? Moving forward having ITN only, that would exclude any new pools ever from entering the list. Maybe 6mo+ active staking with reliable stats?

Makes sense @mraybin, I think I’ll do that towards the end of the year.

I hope I’ll get to maintain the list as we move forward, but so far nobody has even recommended any new pools, only pool ops testifying on their own behalf :frowning: .

Website for TRUE is now

Not sure if it helps, it being on the list already, but I’ve had various dealings with Georg and I’m happy to stake with TRUE.

TILIA pool maybe (TILX on ITN)?:slight_smile: I think we meet the requirements too.

@rin9s I think this site has a disproportionate amount of SPOs to casual users ratio. I only found this place as an SPO looking for help to get setup. It has been fantastic in that aspect and appreciate everyone involved. @ADAfrog is a pretty cool SPO and would like to nominate him. But aside from that I think the majority seems to be the casual delegator or Ada holder with an issue. Might want to check In with other platforms as we to get a more rounded overview of the user base.
