FAST Stakepool

0% Fee, 40 Gbps Bandwidth, 1 ms Latency

Have any questions about staking?

It's filled with tons of information and disambiguation that will be useful to anyone looking to delegate on Cardano. Even if you don't have any questions now, you might learn something that you never knew before. Give it a look!

The FAST Stakepool is designed to be as fast and reliable as possible:

  • It uses a ridiculously fast and reliable Internet connection.

  • It communicates with the network using multiple relays around the world.

  • It runs on a dedicated machine with high-performance SSDs as well as significantly more processing power and memory than necessary.

  • It has a watchdog process monitoring it to ensure that it keeps running in event of an unexpected crash (so far this hasn't happened, but it's good to be safe).

  • It is up to date on all modern security practices to make sure that it is safe from attackers.

All this is to make sure that we're always in sync with the rest of the Cardano network so that we never miss a block and that you never miss any rewards.

Pool Parameters

  • As of now, the Cardano protocol requires that the cost per epoch of a pool be at minimum 340 ada. We certainly would've liked to have set this lower, but unfortunately we can't. In order to try to compensate, we've set the pool margin to 0% to maximize your rewards as a delegator. There are currently no plans to change this.

  • Also as of right now, pool pledge doesn't have a huge effect on rewards. A pool with 1,000 ada pledged will barely earn anything less than a pool with 1,000,000 ada pledged. For security purposes, we've chosen to only pledge 11,000 ada for right now, but we may increase this later if necessary.
