We are a small two man team of Cardano enthusiasts based out of Honolulu, HI.
Our plan is to try to provide the highest quality stake pool at the lowest possible price.
We would like to make staking accessible to as many people as possible, as soon as possible. As such, we are offering ZERO FIXED FEES and only a 4% fee (on rewards) for the incentivized Shelley testnet. After that, we plan to provide the lowest possible price for staking with the highest possible quality, without going overboard. Essentially, we want to be the “best bang for your buck” stakepool. We want to keep upkeep/maintenance fees within reason to provide the best possible return on investment (ROI).
Update: In the current mainnet, right after the hard fork (7/29/20), there is now a minimum fixed fee of 340 ADA. In order to compensate for this fixed fee, we have lowered the % fee to 2%. We believe that such a fee schedule is fair.
Just like Charles Hoskinson says:
Don’t trust us. Trust the process.
If you don’t think we’re doing a good enough job, let us know how to improve.
We will try our best to make sure that we are as close to 100% uptime as possible.
We are committed to providing high quality staking at the most reasonable possible price. Currently, it remains to be seen what “reasonable” is. That will depend on how much the reward is, how large the pool ends up being, and how much reward is earned on the incentivized testnet.
