To ensure all people can experience life as meaningful.
Ideal works towards a new status quo: a mindset with the intrinsic motivation to rethink attitudes and actions in the interest of societal progress.
The Cardano Foundation has presented IDEAL with a honorable mention for its contributions to the Cardano ecosystem. We thank The Cardano Foundation for the honorable mention and are glad our efforts get…
IDEAL is becoming more and more independent. We have now added powerful local servers to our Cardano staking pool and Harmony validator.
We have updated all of our Cardano nodes to 1.34.1. This release brings some performance improvements to the node. Click the link to learn more about the 1.34.1 release.
How do I delegate ADA to the Ideal pool?
Is there a risk in delegating ADA to a pool?
There is no risk in delegating ADA to a staking pool. ADA delegated to a pool will never leave the delegator’s wallet and will never be locked.
When will I receive staking rewards?
It takes 4 epochs (~20 days) for first time delegators to receive their first staking rewards.
Switching from another pool? Then it takes just 2 epochs (~ 10 days) to receive the first rewards from Ideal. You won’t miss out on rewards from the previous pool while switching to Ideal.
After these periods rewards will be distributed each epoch (~ 5 days). Note that the pool has to make a block in an epoch in order to make staking rewards. It is normal for a pool to sometimes not make blocks.
How do I monitor rewards?
Why do I receive more/ less rewards than before?
Rewards are calculated per epoch (~ 5 days) and are based on numerous factors.
The factors include but are not limited to the amount of active delegators, delegated stake to our pool, luck in the block lottery and processed blocks.
These factors tend to change per epoch.
What do certain staking terms mean?
- Pool pledge
The amount of self‐bonded assets that are intended to remain staked to the pool for as long as it is in operation.
- Fixed costs
The set fee that is deducted first to cover the pool’s operational costs. All pools are required to set the fixed costs to at least 340 ADA.
- Pool margin
The percentage of the pool’s rewards taken by the stake pool operator after the fixed cost but before rewards are distributed pro‐rata.
- Lifetime ROA
The return of ADA (ROA) a delegator can expect on delegated ADA after one year. This metric is based on a pool’s lifetime performance.
- ROA (M)
The return of ADA (ROA) a delegator can expect on delegated ADA after one year. This metric is based on a pool’s recent performance.
