Look alive, SPOs!
On October 28th, IOG released Daedalus wallet 2.4.0. In addition
to new features like saturation indicator for stake pools, the
wallet also introduced a new ranking mechanism that unranks two
thirds of the active pools.
Releasing a Daedalus which unranks two thirds of stake pools
does a great disservice to the Cardano delegator community by
providing an inaccurate and misleading representation of
numerous Cardano stake pool operations’ ability to create
competitive revenue. As a result stake has begun migrating away
from affected pools out of delegator fear and uncertainty. This
leads many stake pool operators to question whether they can
continue to be part of the community.
We [SPOCRA] feel that the changes made by IOG to Daedalus push
the boundaries of the Cardano ethos of decentralization and
promote a form of censorship. We understand that in the current
order of operations, things like Goguen implementation are a
priority. That said, many stake pool operators are hanging on by
a thread and many will not make it to Q2 2021. We believe that
there are steps IOG could take in good faith to help bridge the
We have created this on-chain poll/statement to let everyone
know where the membership of SPOCRA stands.
