The ADAvault stake pool is providing our delegators with reliable rewards of 5% on their stake for the minimum fixed pool fee of 340₳ per Epoch, and an introductory variable fee of 0%*

In staking with ADAvault you will get a continuous return on your ADA investment. We are an independent Stake Pool Operator, and only operate one pool. By staking with us you are supporting the decentralisation of Cardano ecosystem.

We operate a highly secure and reliable stake pool, and commit to permanently fair fees.

* We are waiving the variable fee for all new and existing delegators from Epoch 230 until March 31st 2021 when it will revert to 0.99%.

Why Pledge Matters

ADAvault has a 1.25M₳ pledge assigned to the ADV pool. Why does this matter?

The pool pledge is committed as part of the signed transaction when the pool is created. If the pledge commitment is not maintained for a given Epoch then the pool owners and delegates do not receive rewards.

Pools with a significant pledge are making a long term commitment to the Cardano ecosystem and are taking a real and measurable risk. They cannot quickly exit the ecosystem without impact, and this helps maintain the ADA price, acting against extreme price fluctuations.

As a delegator you can have confidence that pools with a large pledge are incentivised to keep the pool operating securely and reliably. It stops pool owners from running large numbers of pools and therefore acts against centralisation of the network which helps maintain security and resilience.

How to Stake with ADAvault

When you choose to stake your ADA with us they remain secure in your wallet. This means we do not have access to your private keys or passwords, and will never request this information. Therefore at any time of your choosing you can cease staking (or delegating) to the ADV stake pool, and they return to your control.

Staking is supported by Daedalus and Yoroi. In Yoroi you will need to use the PoolID shown in the footer. Using Daedalus simply select the delegation tab, and search for the Pool Ticker ADV. Please check the details match as shown below.


ADAvault recent minted block histogram

ADAvault has 4 blocks allocated for Epoch 233 with a statistical expectation for 4.1 blocks. We are able to predict this using the same algorithm that the node uses to define leadership slots.

Checking historical performance using the algorithm allows us to confirm that the ADAvault stake pool has minted all blocks allocated since it started operation, with historical performance here.

ADAvault is not saturated, but when the amount staked against a pool reaches saturation, the percentage rewards per delegator decline. The saturation level is currently set at 212M₳, reduces to ~60M₳ from Epoch 234 on December 6th, and to ~30M₳ in March 2021.

ADAvault is producing a stable and predictable return for our delegators, with a current average stake pool return of 8%, which is near the top of the theoretical annual return within the Cardano System.

Rewards and fees

Rewards for pool owners and delegators are calculated at the end of each 5 day Epoch, and paid at the end of the following Epoch.

After pool rewards have been calculated and adjusted for pool performance (a pool making N% of allocated blocks will make N% of expected rewards), they are distributed amongst the pool operator and the people who delegated stake to the pool. This happens in several steps:

  • First, the fixed fee (340₳) is subtracted from the total rewards and given to the pool operator.
  • Next, the declared margin (0.99%*) is subtracted and given to the pool operator.
  • Finally the remainder is split fairly (proportional to delegated stake), amongst all people who staked Cardano Ada to the pool, including the pool owners.

Please note ADAvault charges the minimum permitted fixed fee. Our variable fee is among of the lowest available and is guaranteed to never increase*.

Full details on fee calculations are available from the Cardano Foundation site , and you can use the online calculator to help determine your likely rewards.

* 0% introductory offer until March 31st 2021.

ADAvault recommend Kraken to purchase Ada, as they are an established exchange with a global presence, excellent security, a wide range of crypto trading pairs and most Fiat currencies.
