We want to bring positive change to the world and to actively support the Cardano network. We have staked our ADA with other staking pools in the past, but it is time now for us to become even more involved. The best way to support Cardano is to operate a stake pool and convert our ADA holdings into our pool pledge because this helps decentralize the project and increase the overall raw processing power of the Cardano network.
We bring our stake pools to the public with a 0.00% margin and minimum pool fee, which means
you will receive the maximum possible interest income our pool can provide!
Our pool operator interest rewards are allocated as follows:
|Save the Children|
|The Nature Conservancy|
|Pure Water FOR THE WORLD|
FSI Coin ₳ Pot
|Blocks Current Epoch|
|Last Reward Epoch|
|Latest Cardano Node Release||
We are a proud member of the Cardano Single Pool Alliance
PayPal is adding cryptocurrency merchant payments in 2021. Soon after, credit card processors including Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express will need to add support for cryptocurrency payments in order to stay competitive or they will cease to exist. Eventually, this technological paradigm shift will cause most people to use cryptocurrency as their main currency, leaving fiat currencies for cash transactions only. Support for purchases using cryptocurrency is important because it is much more convenient than converting to local fiat first before spending.
Some cryptocurrencies are born and fade away quickly because they have very little long term vision and add little utility to existing cryptocurrencies. Although there are several cryptocurrencies which have different forms of practical utility, there may only be room for certain cryptocurrencies in the future. We believe in the utility and future vision of Cardano.
Cardano is currently the most decentralized cryptocurrency and also supports staking functionality which most other cryptocurrencies do not currently support. Additionally, Cardano has plans for enabling those which have poor or no bank access to use Cardano as a replacement for modern banking, which will change these areas of the world for the better, starting with Africa.
