Stake delegation stuck at 'calculating fees'

I am trying to delegate cardano to a stake pool, any pool! But the transaction is stuck at ‘’ calculating fees’. Despite patience and several attempts

Is anyone else having the same issue?
I have the correct clock and restarted the pc

Going to miss out on next epoch point at this rate!

Daedalus network is so slow too!!

You can cancle a transaction and try to delegate again.

Tried that about 15 times so far!!

If Daedalus doesnt work for you, you could try to use adalite.

Given Yoroi has delegation now, consider moving your funds to a new Yoroi wallet and delegating from there.

Hope you get this resolved one way or another.


@ghostrider203 @Ahmad_Alkilani @Zyroxa It’s great you give alternatives, but honestly with so many people wanting to use Daedalus, and the fact that it is supposed to be operable/the point is for it to be usable, I don’t understand why people are being asked to try something else. [Each day it takes a long time to sync (why?), and stake pools are not coming up/shown but I know they’re random currently, though the updates have gone very well for me, thankfully.] I’ve been patiently waiting for all to be working/for epochs to complete, so unsure why re-direction is the answer?
Thank you.


The network is in a very chaotic state just now, it won’t even begin to start running normally until the next epoch. Pool order in Daedalus is literally random. Also, it’s what’s called a full-node wallet, operating directly on the whole blockchain, most people are better off using a light wallet such as Yoroi (though that’s still imperfect too) or AdaLite.

Daedalus on Windows is specifically not optimized yet so it’s slow and that’s the platform many use today. Daedalus will have a release that addresses the Windows performance problems. IOHK/IOG does know about them and Charles has acknowledged and uses Windows as well. I suspect this will be addressed in about 2 weeks. In the meantime, best to show people there are options than to give up :slight_smile:
