This will ensure, that the POOL will always generate rewards & demonstrates our commitment to a reliable pool operation & trust in the CARDANO Protocol
Our infrastructure will grow with the pool, starting with a Cloud infrastructure. We will later switch to a hybrid infrastructure (Cloud, Bare Metal & own Server in Data-center).
Our fees will be structured so that they transparently adapt to different influencing parameters like Pool size, Server infrastructure, ADA price, etc
Every shareholder of the CARDANO Protocol (= Owner of ADA) has the right to produce blocks for the network and earn ADA rewards for doing this work. To not force every shareholder to run a server, it is possible to delegate your block production right to a shareholder who is willing to run such a Server. These block producers are called stake POOLS. They produce Blocks on behalf of all shareholders delegating to them. The rewards are paid out automatically by the protocol every five days to everyone participating.
3. Create a Wallet, and send funds from the exchange to one of your wallet addresses.
4. Select "stake pools" in Daedalus or "Delegate" in YOROI. Copy the stake pool ID, paste it into the search bar, and select FORTE and delegate. By delegating to a POOL, you solely forward the block production right to the POOL. The ADA in your wallet stays liquid under your control, and you can spend it immediately.
After the first time delegating to a pool, it takes 15-20 days until you receive your first reward. After this initial period, you will get continuous reward payments directly to your Wallet every five days. If you switch from a different POOL, you get rewards without interruption. You can expect a 3-5% annualized return on your investment.
I am the Owner and Operator of FORTE Pool, a husband and family father of 2 kids. For the last 15 years, my profession has been working as a mechanical engineer. During that time, I've been lucky to work for two leading companies in their industry. I've always been curious about the future. Maybe this drove me to work mainly on advanced development and research projects. My last employment was at a company in the automotive industry, where we developed steer-by-wire steering systems mainly required for autonomous vehicles.
I got first time curious about Blockchain in November 2018. After discovering CARDANO and performing Research on the project, it was very obvious to me, this technology is very disruptive and has the potential to improve the life of billions of people around the globe.
In January 2022, I started FORTE Pool and decided to commit 100% of my time to supporting CARDANO by providing reliable infrastructure for the community. Our mid-term goal is to invest the rewards generated from the POOL in enterprise hardware Servers to operate our Pool as robust and decentralized as possible.
