Ardana ISPO Partner
We believe in the importance of Ardana to unlock real-world commercial adoption of Cardano. We support Ardana as a partner pool (ASPA).
We donate 20% of all profits to integration projects. This helps increasing social stability in times of refugee camps and integration challenges. Ultimately making the world a safer place for all of us.
Not even the best technical setup can guarantee 100% availability. If we miss a block because of unavailability we take responsibility for it and stand in for the lost rewards (limited to 1 block per epoch)

Cardano has the potential to revolutionize the financial system for the better for the richest but also poorest people of the world. We want to see Cardano be the #1 choice for private and business use cases. For this reason, we put the 3 aspects Real-world applications, Stable network operation, and Sustainable Cardano on top of our priorities list. All of them are important for an organization when evaluating which blockchain to use. It’s good for Cardano to be based on Pools that support those aspects and therefore make Cardano successful in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions
Delegation means assigning your stake to a stake pool. The stake pool is a server which participates in the Cardano network to sign blocks. Rewards for generating blocks are distributed to all delegators based on their delegated stake.
Native rewards are paid out based on the Cardano Delegation Cycle which is explained here. If you are staking the first time please consider that it will take 15-20 days until the first rewards show up. After changing a stake pool native rewars still will come in from your old pool with the same latency.
If you delegate your stake for the first time, you will have to pay 2 ADA for key deposit. This will be returned if you unstake later. Additionally a transaction fee of ~0.2 ADA is charged for setting and changing your stake pool.
Your funds stay in your own wallet. You can anytime use them or undelegate. There is no lock of your funds. Delegating is just handing over rights to participate in the network, no ADA itself.
Your funds are not locked. You can use them at any time.
Return on ADA means the annualized rewards percentage. The actual rewards of an epoch are 5 days / 365 days (1 year)
This is not a legal advice: Tax treatment is different in every country. In Austria staking rewards are treated as income and need to be considered with your personal income tax rate. Later value increases are treated like normal Crypto holdings. This means they also are treated with your personal income tax rate if sold within one year. After one year they can be sold tax-free. Note: By 1.3.2022 crypto taxation will fundamentally change in Austria: See: https://www.tpa-group.at/de/news/breaking-news-aenderung-der-besteuerung-von-krypto-assets-ab-1-3-2022/
