Love2Stake, The Best Cardano Stake Pool.

Warning

Delegating your Cardano stake to a staking pool NEVER requires you to send your ADA to another third party. Anyone asking you to send them your Ada so that they can “Stake” it for you is trying to steal your Ada. Don't fall for it. The Best pool ever will NEVER ask you to send ADA from your wallet to any address and remember, Charles Hoskinson does not give away free Ada so don't fall for any free Ada giveaway scams.

Pre-requisite

Participation in Cardano staking is initiated from your Daedalus or Yorio wallet and your Ada never leaves your wallet.

If you currently hold your Ada on a crypto exchange then download the Daedalus wallet from the Cardano website and transfer your Ada from the exchange into your wallet.

Delegation

If you already have your Ada in one of the supported Ada wallets then go to the delegation section of the wallet and browse the available stake pools. Look for the pool with the Ticker "LOVE2" and assign us the delegation rights.

Your Ada will not leave your wallet, we are only assigned the delegation rights to create blocks on your behalf. It will take the current epoch plus the entire next epoch for your delegation choice to become active on the blockchain (up to 10 days depending on when you delegate).

Our pool name is Love2Stake, our pool Ticker is: LOVE2

The Best Cardano Stake Pool “Fee” or “Pool Margin” is 0% and we will keep it this way for life. We make enough from the fixed tariffs set by the Cardano Foundation to make it worth our while and sustainable.

The “Pool fee” or “epoch fee”, is the fixed reward tariff set by the Cardano Foundation. The Pool operators receive a 340A fee from the total amount of reward they generated in that epoch. An epoch lasts 5 days.

Example

If a stake pool generated 10,000 Ada reward in a given epoch. The pool operator receives 340 Ada which leaves 9,660 Ada as rewards to be shared between the delegators.

We the stake pool operator choose to take 0% of your reward. This is the absolute minimum the Cardano protocol allows right now. 340A per epoch is plenty for us and will be even better as the price of Ada appreciates

Cardano Pool saturation is a term used to indicate that a particular stake pool has more stake delegated to it than is ideal for the network from a security point of view.

You can still delegate to a saturated pool but you will not earn more rewards. The rewards are capped by the Cardano Foundation and the capped rewards will be shared between even more delegators leaving you with less rewards. It’s not a good idea to delegate to a saturated pool, not even one with a 0% pool fee.

Realistically, it is now economically sustainable to set a pool fee of 0% and maintain enterprise class infrastructure. This was not always the case, especially in the early pioneering days when the price of Ada was just 9 cents.

Initially we set the pool margin to a 0% fee to get our pool established and this is totally legit and should not be seen as disreputable or not serious. There are many in the Cardano community that would happily run a 0% fee pool, just for fun. Its what geeks do.

These days it is very sustainable to run a Cardano Stake Pool with a 0% fee as the 340 Ada the pool operator receives is worth a lot of value and will keep increasing over time.

Pick any non-saturated Cardano staking pool that you are drawn too, especially if the pool fee is 0% and they are minting at least 1 block per epoch. Don’t worry too much about ranking, instead look for lifetime Return on Stake (ROS).

Any Cardano staking pool with less than one million delegated Ada, may struggle to mint blocks due to the random nature of block leader selection. If however a very small stake pool does mint blocks, the rewards will be higher as less delegators to share the rewards with.

A small stake pool with under 3 million delegated Ada and minting several blocks per epoch would be a great pool to consider.
Don’t worry about the “Pledge” amount, it has very little affect on the rewards and is completely negated when a pool operator charges 1% fee or more.

Another good value to look out for is Lifetime Luck.

Pledge has several uses in Cardano, Pledge allows Stake Pool operators a way to delegate their own Ada to their Pool, it can also go some way towards the Pool operator demonstrating that they have skin in the game and commitment.

Stake Pool operators may opt to pledge some or all of their stake to make their pool more attractive.

The Pledge also has other uses however a low pledge does not really indicate less commitment. In reality it’s very difficult to setup a Cardano stake pool and it’s not possible for a Stake Pool operator to steal your Ada through the delegation mechanism in any of the supported wallets. Your Ada can only be stolen, if you transfer it due to a scam or someone has your wallet recovery keys.

Another point to consider is that a Stake Pool operator could be running from a country where $100 is a lot of money. We should support all Cardano Stake Pools, it’s the Cardano way, it’s what Cardano was built for and it’s what Charles Hoskinson would want.

Yes. Rewards earned are added to your original stake.

When your rewards are received, the balance of your reward account will also increase, therefore the delegated stake will increased.

Love the philosophy of this Cardano stake pool. I want my Ada stake to benefit others and make a difference.

ROS (Return on Stake) has been good. A lot better than the last stake pool I was with.

Mark

Been a good stake pool so far, I like the idea of helping others less fortunate. Its the Cardano way.

James

Stake pool reliability has been solid, keep up the good work. Nice website.

Harry

A noble and worthy cause, my heart and prayers are with you. I don't have much Cardano but every little counts.

Delegate your Ada right now and lets make change possible.
