CARDANO

Cardano is a blockchain platform for changemakers, innovators, and visionaries, with the tools and technologies required to create possibility for the many, as well as the few, and bring about positive global change.

"Cardano brings a new standard in technology – open and inclusive – to challenge the old and activate a new age of sustainable, globally-distributed innovation."

Shelley

Following on from the Byron era, the Shelley era of Cardano is a period of growth and development for the network. Unlike the Byron era, which began at a single point in time when the mainnet was launched, the transition to Shelley is designed to achieve a smooth, low-risk transition without service interruptions.

The Poll

By delegating to the LFE stake pool, you help us maintaining our infrastructure, as well as to pay for further development of new tools and frameworks. We have a lot in our todo pipeline. We truly appreciate your trust, and we promise that we will be tireless to keep the complete infrastructure running smoothly, so you can get all the rewards you deserve by holding up to your ADA.

All remaining margin fees will be used to increase the pool pledge.

If you wish to delegate your ADA to our pool, please be absolutely sure to use the Pool Public Key down below, to avoid you from delegate to an impersonator.

  • Pool Ticker: LFE
  • Pool Public Key: b4612c2a040b16344f3e463dbfa1940a78a0cea26fc962157630b78b
  • Pool Pledge: 600k ADA
  • Pool Margin: 3%
  • Cost per epoch: 340 ADA

Hardware

We strive to keep our pool up and running smoothly 24/7. The goal is 100% uptime. We believe that even more important then pledge or pool rates, are the node's availability and low latency so we never miss a block.

Our network is composed of five nodes strategically spread across several countries.

  • OS: Ubuntu 20.04 x64
  • CPU: 4Core
  • RAM: 4096 MB
  • Storage: 250G SSD
  • OS: Ubuntu 20.04 x64
  • CPU: 4Core
  • RAM: 4096 MB
  • Storage: 128G SSD
  • OS: Ubuntu 18.04 x64
  • CPU: 8Core
  • RAM: 8192 MB
  • Storage: 800G SSD
  • OS: Ubuntu 20.04 x64
  • CPU: 4Core
  • RAM: 4096 MB
  • Storage: 128G SSD

Development

We are developing different tools to help us manage our network structure and all operations related to the stake pool. We plan to make them available on Github. Stay tuned for that.

Architecture

Our tree production relays are strategically positioned to achieve better latency to the block producers.

We have one block producer whose only job is to stay ready to take charges in case the main one fails for any possible reason. During normal operations this node acts as an relay. This way we ensure it always has the latest network status and can start producing blocks in a matter of seconds.

There's only one goal: 100% uptime.
