Alongside our block producer node, we have created 3 reliable relay nodes to ensure 100% uptime with minimum latency for many years to come. All nodes have at least 8GB RAM, 160 SSD, and 4TB transfer to manage scalability with ease. We promise immediate and full transparency (regarding any fee, server, or update changes) to our delegators.
Our pool is run using four virtual private machines, three relays and one block producer distributed across different data centers in the United States, Asia, and Europe. We keep 2 relays online 24/7 and have the third as a back up in case one relay becomes redundant (e.g. during maintenance/ upgrades). We do not miss staking rewards from the Cardano proof-of-stake protocol.
Our nodes are expensive but they ensure maximum efficiency and security. We use triple security measures (mobile authenticator, private key, and password) to secure all nodes. If you are worried about losing ADA by staking, don't be, the tokens never leave your Yoroi or Daedalus wallet. There is a reason why >70% of circulating ADA is staked.
I initially became interested in cryptocurrencies as a means to promote freedom, great technology, and equality. As I continued to learn about various projects, it became clear that Cardano is here to stay and make changes for the better.
In early 2020 I put my money where my mouth is. As a student, it was hard to find capital but luckily after investing all my savings in ADA, I bought enough to fund the stakepool pledge.
In 2021, I decided to create a stakepool to 1) increase Cardano's decentralization, 2) become more involved in the Cardano community, and 3) learn more. Creating PUMP demonstrates our dedication to the protocol and will for Cardano to succeed. The Pool ID is b14a49e33d3ac050a73684484d92 5a4ba49af4267c2a57c9e5dd49ad.
The future is bright for Cardano and we, as part of the student generation backing Cardano, will remain forever committed. As Charles says, the dog keeps barking and the caravan keeps moving. Cardano will keep moving. We can't wait to see what unveils over the next few years.
Ethan is a business student in Hong Kong who works with Cardano and Ergo projects. Moriz is in the same university program as Ethan but has a background in computer science and legal studies. Rob is a financial consultant and investor. We can assure you that each of us is talented and we all attended top universities worldwide. What matters most is that we are dedicated to running this pool 24/7 and keeping our delegators happy.
