Staking on Cardano

The Shelley era contains the critical early steps in Cardano’s journey to decentralization. They will be gradual but significant. During the Byron era, the network was federated, but as the Shelley era progresses, more and more nodes will shift towards being run by the Cardano Community.

Shelley will also introduce a reward system to stimulate stake pools and community adoption. As a proof-of-stake system, users stake their ADA to participate in the network.

Painstakingly designed using game theory and the latest research into proof-of-stake protocols, the delegation and incentive scheme will allow and encourage users to delegate their stake to stake pools and be rewarded for honest participation in the network.

What happened to your stake pool?

In October 2019, I started working for the Cardano Foundation. A step that allows me to contribute full time to the Cardano community, and I am very excited about it.

However, due to the possible conflict of interest, this also means ADAtainment will not operate a stake pool. Instead, the website will be even more committed to the community and provide information that will support for example stake pool operators in building their own pools and websites.
