General FAQ

  • Can I loose my ADA delegating to a staking pool?
    No. Staking is 100% safe. You are using your right to delegate to a pool which is a separate action from transferring ADA.

    This is currently not possible. You can only delegate to one pool per wallet. Therefore you can create multiple wallets and delegate each one. Note: This feature is on the roadmap. So if you are not in a hurry it is best to wait.

Delegation is a process of delegating ADA to a staking pool. Staking pools actually make the Cardano network as they produce “transactions” (blocks).

Note 1: Ledger Nano S/X/Trezor users can stake directly with the hardware device.

This is a short high level overview to show you what is our software and hardware infrastructure @ ADA Point Pool.

Overall goal of our pool is that people have a quality and low fee pool to delegate to which provides max return on investment (ROI) every EPOCH.

The strategy to achieve that goal is for us to have the biggest uptime possible at competitive price/block. In other words having high reliability; no downtime, which means we should produce blocks every time we are assigned to produce them.
