##### Rewards Calculator

### Ada Staking Calculator

This is a **simplified** staking calculator. How many ada do you like to stake?

##### Payout

### How and when are staking profits paid out?

In Cardano, the staking profits are not distributed by the pools themselves. They are automatically distributed at protocol level.

This happens at the end of each epoch. (i.e. every 5 days) Rewards are “re-delegated” by default.

### How accurate is this calculation?

What the simplified staking calculator does is calculating a range from some pessimistic initial default values to optimistic initial default values.

There's a 35 page-long paper on how staking rewards will work on the IOHK paper library. As you can probably imagine it's not possible to fit this in one single text field like we did above.

The result is (at the moment) only a **rough estimate** based on an estimate. Results **must not be used** as financial advice.
