I recently received a spreadsheet with the end results of the ITN. Several items were listed as considerations for choosing a stake pool. The items were Return on Stake (ROS), Fixed Tax, Variable Tax, Total Blocks, and Epochs Active.
The author gave the impression that Taxes did not have a serious impact on ROS. Therefore, that leaves only Total Blocks and Epochs Active. However, I found some pools with lower Total Blocks and/or Epochs Active produced higher ROS. WTF?
What does a delegator need to evaluate before delegating ADA? There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason for higher ROS.
