The ADAvault stake pools are providing our delegators with reliable rewards of more than 5% 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, supporting the decentralisation of Cardano ecosystem.

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

* We are waiving the variable fee for all new and existing delegators until September 30th 2021 when it will revert to 0.99%.

Why Pledge Matters

ADAvault has a 500K₳ pledge assigned to each of the ADV stake pools. 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.

ADAvault uses dedicated hardware operated in a physically secure environment. We take operational security extremely seriously, building and maintaining our systems to the same level demanded by global banks and payment service providers.

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. At any time of your choosing you can cease staking (or delegating) to any stake pool, and they return to your control.

When selecting a pool please check the details match (as shown above for Daedalus). ADV3 is not ranked as highly in Daedalus as it is a newer pool, however the potential rewards are at parity with ADV and ADV2. At this time we recommend delegating to ADV3- see below for details. ADV4 is reserved for future use, please do not delegate to this pool.

Staking is supported by Daedalus and Yoroi. In both wallets you can search for the pool ID in the footer or use the ticker symbol. Simply select the delegation tab, and search for ADAvault or the Pool Ticker ADV.

When the amount staked against a pool reaches saturation, the percentage rewards per delegator decline. The saturation level is currently set at ~63M₳.

Update 23-JUL-2021: If you are a new delegator please note ADV and ADV2 are nearly saturated. We currently recommend you delegate to ADV3.


ADAvault (ADV) recent minted block histogram. Note the random variation in block production which averages over time based on the total amount delegated to the pool.

ADV has 48 blocks allocated for Epoch 280 (61 blocks expected, 78% luck).

ADV2 has 67 blocks (60 expected, 112% luck).

ADV3 has 15 blocks (12 expected, 128% luck).

ADAvault Ops Team

ADAvault stake pools have minted all blocks allocated since they started operation, producing a stable and predictable return for our delegators. We have an average stake pool return of ~6%, which is near the top of the theoretical annual return within the Cardano ecosystem.

We have introduced a new pool ADV3 (ADV4 is reserved for future use) to enable new delegators to continue to enjoy the same class leading returns. This pool is currently averaging 96% of expected returns and will be higher risk until established (~20M₳). However as we have seen with ADV2 this can work in the delegators favour with higher returns as the pool grows. One strategy is to split delegation using multiple wallets between a large pool (ADV/ADV2) and small pool (ADV3) to gain some exposure while keeping stable returns.
