ABOUT

ANGEL Pool’s main goal is to support the Cardano community and ecosystem. We are offering a low staking fee, without compromising on performance and support.

The delegation of your ADA to our Cardano pools DOES NOT require you to send your ADA; the delegation is a totally different operation and can be done in the following wallets:

  • Daedalus Wallet

    Daedalus is a full-node wallet which means that it downloads, stores and validates the full copy of the blockchain. It can operate in a trustless manner and it does not rely on centrally hosted servers.

  • Yoroi Wallet

    Yoroi is a light wallet, which means it does not download the full copy of the blockchain. It connects to trusted servers which have the full copy of the blockchain.

FAQ

Q1. What is Cardano?

A. Cardano is a decentralized, Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain based system, powered by the ADA coin.
It is a smart contract-based system that can be used to run Decentralized Apps (called DApps). It was designed as a layered system, so it has a separate layer which runs ADA exchange and another layer which runs the Smart Contracts. Cardano is the first cryptocurrency which runs on a scientific peer review, which ensures its safety.

Q2. What exactly is the Cardano coin – ADA?

A. ADA is the digital currency of Cardano.
Its primary motive is to provide a quick and safe currency exchange and allow users to operate various Smart Contracts and applications seamlessly.
IOHK, along with a Japanese company Emurgo, began developing Cardano in 2015, and its first phase, Byron, was released in 2017. ADA is pre-capped at 45 million with 31M currently in circulation.
Cardano is an attractive choice for many companies and corporations, especially those involving heavy uses of contracts.

Q3. What is a staking pool?

A. A staking pool is an active node in Cardano's blockchain.
It secures the network and generates blocks for Cardano's blockchain on behalf of the delegators, thus earning them rewards.

Q4. Why the need for staking pools?

A. Cardano nodes are randomly chosen to generate blocks for Cardano's blockchain according to the Ouroborus protocol. When a node is selected, it must be online and connected to the network in order to generate a valid block and thus earn minting rewards for everyone delegating in the pool.
This process is done in order to keep Cardano decentralized.

Q5. Do I need to delegate my ADA to a staking pool?

A. No. This is not required, but it is HIGHLY recommended if you do not run a full node 24/7.
Delegating your ADA also helps secure the Cardano blockchain, while earning you rewards.

Q6. How to select a pool?

A. Delegation to the largest staking pools is not recommended. This could lead to unevenly distributed staking pools, where a few number of large pools dominate the blockchain, which can drastically affect Cardano network's stability and security.
To prevent centralization the incentive mechanisms use the concept of saturation, so once a pool passes the saturation point, the returned rewards are GREATLY diminished

Q7. Do I need to Send ADA to pool in order to get rewards?

A. No. You should NEVER send your hard-earned ADA to any staking pool. To earn rewards, you ONLY NEED TO DELEGATE your wallets to your selected staking pools (hopefully ANGEL) by using your Daedalus Wallet or Yoroi Wallet.
