Discovery

We are Jay & Cris, your Pool operators. We’re in the world of Cardano since 2017, we took part in the ITN (incentivized testnet), successfully operating Jormungandr, an early version of the node, for over 3 months.

We are big time believers in Cardano’s mission, we’ve been here since day zero and we plan to remain active for the very long term.

The fees we charge go towards maintaining and securing the nodes in their different locations across the world and also help 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. We’ve got a lot of projects in mind, from building an app to detect road potholes, fix them and reward the workers, to supporting reforestation projects by using satellite zone scanning.

Why delegate to us?

  1. ORIGINAL SPO with over 4000 blocks minted on the mainnet since epoch 208, we know what we’re doing. Your funds are SAFU with us.
  2. LOW FEES to maximise your rewards and ROI.
  3. GREAT SERVERS: Reliable dedicated servers in multiple locations and prodivers. No downtime with us!
  4. 24/7 MONITORED: Alerts and monitoring is in place 24/7.
  5. 2M ADA PLEDGE: Our incentive to achieve the best performance possible, we work hard to maximise our own rewards too.
  6. LOGS: We update this page regularly with status updates and epoch debrief.

Current Epoch Update

Nothing to report, all pools live.

How to check for performance ?

Our pools are minting blocks, yes. But how performant exactly is our setup ? Navigate to DIVY, MILKY, GLAX or SUNO and under the metic Assigned Performance, you will find how many blocks were produced versus how many blocks were assigned.

Archive per Epoch

Epoch Update
279 DIVY ✅ - Great luck with 39 blocks scheduled!

MILKY ✅ - Pool is fully working but luck this epoch is below 100% for the stake delegated.

GXY ✅ - 1 block scheduled, no issue to report

SUNO ⚠️ - No blocks scheduled this epoch unfortunately.
278 DIVY ✅ - Perfect epoch with good luck and performance.

MILKY ✅ - Great luck and pool performance.

GXY ✅ - Exceptional luck and great performance.

SUNO ✅ - Luck was not great, the pool minted all the scheduled blocks.
277 ✅ No issues to report, 100% uptime!
276 ✅ No issues to report, 100% uptime!
275 DIVY ✅ - Great luck and pool performance.

MILKY ⚠️ - Unlucky this epoch, with 5.4 blocks expected, Milky was assigned none. The pool is running completely fine with no downtime, the lack of block is down to the block lottery.

GXY ⚠️ - No blocks scheduled unfortunately due to luck probability with circa 1M staked, we’ll have better luck next epoch.

SUNO ✅ - 3 blocks scheduled, great luck.
274 ✅ No issues to report, 100% uptime!
273 ✅ No issues to report, 100% uptime!
272 ✅ No issues to report, 100% uptime!

Discovery 2 (DIVY2) has been renamed to Milky Way (MILKY). Fees updated to 1%. Discovery 3 (DIVY3) has been renamed to Galaxy (GXY). Fees updated to 1%. Discovery 4 (DIVY4) has been renamed to SuperNova (SUNO).

253 Great epoch for DIVY pools, no issues to flag, 7.5% ROA for epoch 253 on DIVY3!
252 10% ROA on DIVY3! Good performance on all other pools too, 100% uptime.
251 HFC Mary update happened without issue. DIVY pools had some good luck this epoch, all blocks minted!
250 No problem to report. All nodes and relays worked hard to create blocks on the Cardano network.
249 Unfortunately, DIVY3 was not lucky this epoch, with no blocks assigned to the pool. Epoch 250 was much better for DIVY3 with 170% luck! All other pools have produced all blocks assigned with 100% uptime.
248 All pools working to plan
247 100 working!
246 Everything went to plan and was closely monitored, as usual.
245 No problem to report. Every system go!
244 Another great epoch across all DIVY pools. Upgraded to 1.25.1 , all pools and relays are ready for Mary HFC.
243 Perfect epoch with all blocks minted.
242 Great epoch, great performance from all DIVY pools.
241 One more relay added (UK). 2 blocks missed (DIVY2) due to block battles lost vs other pools. All other blocks minted!
240 All indicators positive. Happy stacking!
239 Perfect epoch.
238 Another perfect epoch! All leader blocks were successfully minted.
237 No issues to report. All leader blocks were successfully minted.

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.
