A BIG Thank You to our delegators – February 2021
We just wanted to take a minute to thank all the delegators that have joined the Easy Staking Pool. We count more than 10 delegators and a whopping 1.2m stake. This is unbelievable given we only started a couple of weeks back.
Above all we would love to thank who believes that true decentralisation also means running a pool outside of data centres, and why not, at home beside your laptop or television.
Here at Easy Staking we are in fact pioneering a full Cardano Staking Pool (two relays and a block producer) on energy efficient ARM devices.
As you can see in the picture the raspberry pi cluster is powered by an ordinary 5v 200mA USB charger. The power consumed is similar to the one required to charge an ordinary cellphone at night.
The cluster is composed by 4 Raspberry Pi 4 8gb. They all use Crucial BX500 120 GB NAND SATA SSD drive. Using SSD in place of SD Cards speeds up disk IO to almost a factor of 10x.
Most importantly, very few Stake Pool Operators, can pride the possibility to take a selfie with their own pool. Here a picture taken just few minutes after the first block on mainnet.
Thanks again, and I hope to see a many more blocks minted soon!
