Shouldering the Decentralization of the World

ATTENTION DELEGATORS!

Atlas Stake Pool is currently saturated. Once a pool passes the saturation point (~67.97 mill ADA), the ADA rewards payouts will begin to decrease for every delegator in the pool. Please keep a look out for this metric and consider an alternate Cardano community pool.

If you are primarily interested in the Sundae token distribution via the SundaeSwap ISO there are still unsaturated pools available. You can reference the saturation levels on this page provided by CardanoPoolPeek

You can find more information about the SundaeSwap DEX here: sundaeswap.finance

Welcome to Atlas Stake Pool!

We believe that a dedicated and passionate community can create a brighter future for all of us. With the Cardano project, a vision to make the world a better place is being transformed into a reality. We are excited to be part of this incredible revolution in the financial space, so we are putting all of our energy into running a reliable, secure, and transparent stake pool operation.

On the one hand, operating a stake pool is an experience in working together with the Cardano community and striving for the success of the network as a whole, but on the other, it is also a competition to attract the trust and eventually the delegation of you, the Cardano believers. We invite you to join us on this journey, and put your faith in ATLAS by staking your ADA in our pool.

Our Values

At Atlas Stake Pool, we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality when it comes to operating our ADA stake pool. Your peace of mind is our priority. Based on this philosophy, our three core values are:
Safety: We employ the highest level of industry safety standards. Core node keys are created solely offline and are stored on multiple encrypted media at all times. Our servers are protected with enterprise-grade firewall software solutions.
Reliability: We decided to use the leading provider of hosting solutions to take advantage of 24/7 uninterrupted monitoring and backup systems. All of our servers and nodes run with Prometheus monitoring and alerting software, which enables us to act instantly and proactively on any potential maintenance needs.
Transparency: To keep you informed about the status of your investment, we frequently update our social channels with the latest information about produced blocks, gained rewards, and other CARDANO ecosystem activity. Feel free to contact us with any questions, either through Telegram or via email.

Setup

Sever Architecture

For our node setup we chose the highest level of industry-grade equipment in order to perform as consistently and reliably as you should expect. Our chosen partner AWS has an excellent reputation and an outstanding track record in the cloud computing space.

Our setup consists of three t2.xlarge Ubuntu machines as nodes, one t2.micro as monitoring rig, and stationary and remote ssh access machines. It has delivered a flawless performance from day one of Shelley staking until today.

Delegation

Delegation Cycle

Cardano ADA staking works in epochs of five days:
  • At the first change of epochs (E1->E2) after your initial delegation, a “snapshot” is taken and stored.
  • At the following epoch change (E2->E3) your delegation becomes active and the pool mints blocks.
  • One epoch later (E4) the rewards are calculated based on the number of minted blocks and the actual transaction fees that transpired.
  • Lastly, in E5 the rewards are paid out to your wallet.
Because of this delegation cycle it takes 15-20 days (at least three full epochs) until the initial rewards are paid out. Since this sequence runs in parallel for each new epoch, you will then receive rewards every five days.
