FAQ

What is pledging?

Pledging is the amount of ADA the pool operator has staked in the pool (the skin in the game so to speak). As per Cardano governance consensus the higher the pledge amount, the higher the overall reward the pool receives.

What is stake pool saturation?

When a stake pool is saturated, this means that the amount being staked on that pool is over the parameter set by the Cardano governance. This results in diminishing returns to the delegators staking on the pool.

When will I start receiving my reward?

From the day you staked, you will typically see your reward within 15-20 days.

When I receive my reward, do I need to stake again?

No, your reward is automatically staked to the same pool your wallet is currently staking. This also applies to any additional ADA the you receive in the wallet after staking.
