Discovery

We are Jay & Cris, your Discovery Pool operators. We are in the world of Cardano since 2017, we took part in the recent ITN, successfully running a stake pool on jormungandr for over 3 months.

We believe in Cardano’s mission and we want to support the network by running a stake pool. Rewards will go towards maintaining and securing the nodes in their different locations across the world, as well as helping us with a much bigger project: driving around Africa, Asia and the Middle East to meet local producers and creators, and help them access the wider market by setting them up on Cardano.

Stake Pool Tickers

Ticker: DIVY1 Fees: 340 + 1% (1% fee until January, then 2%)

Ticker: DIVY2 Fees: 340 + 0% (0% fee until January, then 2%)

Ticker: DIVY3 Fees: 340 + 0% (0% fee until January, then 2%)

Why delegate to us?

  1. Low Fees: All pools will have a 2% fee. Our aim will always be to provide you with the best returns. Enjoy one of the highest ROI on the network!
  2. Dedicated server: We run our pools on secure, reliable servers located across the world.
  3. 24/7 Monitored: We continuously check our pool’s performance via monitoring and alerts.
  4. Up to date: We keep our stake pool updated to the latest tested version.
  5. 2M Self pledge: We self pledged 2M Ada to our pools which gives us the incentive to achieve the best performance possible.
  6. Logs: We update this page regularly with status updates and epoch debrief.

Current Epoch

Epoch 232: All systems operational.

Archive per Epoch

Epoch Update
231 Upgrade to all nodes successful with 100% uptime, and we launched DIVY3 pool.
231 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
230 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
229 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
228 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
227 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. Rewards will be issued as normal
226 Despite a successful epoch with 90 blocks created, no rewards have been distributed to the pool or its delegators due to a mistake I made related to the pool’s pledge amount. During epoch 226, I created a second pool (DIVY2) and split the pledge equally between the two pools. I thought DIVY’s pool certificate, once updated, just needed to match the pledge of the certificate at the immediate time - which it did. I’ve learned since that it needed to match the certificate’s pledge at the start of the epoch - which in retrospect makes sense. I should have waited for one epoch before transferring the pledge difference. The epoch, therefore, ended with a pledge not met, as the pledge amount was under the pledge set at the start of the epoch. This resulted in no rewards distributed. I am truly sorry for this mistake, it was not my intention to abuse your trust by not distributing your rewards. I understand that this mistake impacted all DIVY’s delegators and whilst it was a relatively easy mistake to make, it’s one that had the most extreme of consequences. The rewards can’t be claimed back and have now joined the treasury. While I can’t provide you with a full compensation for the loss incurred, I will drop the fees by half, to 1%, until the end of the year as an apology. Please note that I did not earn any rewards for this epoch, from the pledge or pool fees.
225 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. DIVY2 stake pool launched.
224 All systems were operational - 99% uptime.
223 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
222 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
221 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
220 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
219 Updated all nodes to 1.20.0. Some minimal downtime were expected on relays. BP has run continuously with no downtime, all blocks assigned minted. 100 Blocks minted milestone + a record 25 blocks minted for this epoch!
218 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. No technical issues or missed blocks, just bad luck with the lottery.
217 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
216 All systems were operational - 100% uptime.
215 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. A new record with 16 blocks minted! Pool stake increased to 36M. All nodes updated to 1.19.1
214 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. A record 11 blocks minted!
213 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. 4 blocks expected but only 3 created (out of 3 given).
212 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. Pool + Relays updated to latest version. First ever block created on August 19th, 6 blocks created in total.
211 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. We were hoping to create our first block during epoch 211 but the lottery was not with us.
210 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. Active staked Ada increased from 6.4 to 11.2M - thank you for delegating to our pool.
209 All systems were operational - 100% uptime. Discovery Stake Pool is now appearing in Daedalus.
208 Pool and relays are now live. Our pool was affected by the Daedalus bug and our pool did not appear in the pool list.

Relays

6 relay nodes across the world to ensure fast block propagation across the network.

Future

We plan to add and run additional relays as well as upgrade our current setup (more RAM/DISK).

How to delegate your stake

About

Cardano is a public blockchain and cryptocurrency project. It requires decentralized node servers to validate and secure the blockchain for all participants. If you hold Ada (₳) cryptocurrency, you can participate in this process and earn rewards by staking your Ada.

Your Ada remains within your complete control at all times and you are still allowed to transfer, spend, or move your staking delegation to another stake pool. Jump onboard the Ada Train for staking your Ada and earning rewards.
