Do you Guys know what information will be made public regarding the Staking Pool Operators? (Company, Name, Address, Credit Rating, etc.?)
I thought about an interesting aspect of having 1000 pools distributed in the Community and another 1000 among the very experienced, top IT companies in the world, well the ones who would have the interest, passion for Cardano & commit to certain SLAs & KPIs. IMO such a mixture would be an interesting balance between “ideology” & practicality.
Having top, public IT Companies participate would allow for a Proof-of-Reputation quality beyond the Proof-of-Stake. For instance having Accenture run a few Staking Pools, they would never ever allow themselves the risk not to have the best security, performance and other operational qualities, their reputation at stake is worth much more then any ADA they would “lock into” the pool.
Does anyone know what is the selection criteria IOHK is using for Staking Pool Operators? Will such qualification assessment for the various staking pool applicants be public?
There was the possibility to register for Staking Pools for literally anyone, but were there any invite only parties brought to the candidate list whom IOHK reached out?
