about us.

Staking your ADA is about securing the Cardano network, and earning rewards for doing so. The 1 Percent Pool believes that anyone should be able to earn great rewards from staking.

For this reason, we have dedicated ourselves to charge a maximum of 1% variable fee – ALWAYS!

This is among the absolute lowest stake pool fees you will be able to find, and will ensure you the highest rewards from staking your ADA.

Multiple pools with same tickers

While we’re waiting for Cardano Foundation to approve our new tickers, we’ve opened up new pools under the existing tickers.


You’ll therefore find fx 1PCT1 twice in the list in Daedalus. Always delegate to the one with the lowest active stake, to get the highest rewards. These are individual pools, but run under the same ticker for now.

(Note: This is NOT the adversarial forks you’ve been reading about. We would never do that)

Our pools

Scroll down to see Pool Parameters and a Reward Example.

Do not delegate to 1PCT (A) and 1PCT0 (A). We will close these pools in the end of February, if they are empty by then, due to a certificate issue.

We current recommend delegating to 1PCT1 (A) for the highest rewards.

Pool parameters

 

A pools are our newest pools.

They have 1% variable fee, and 200 ADA fixed fee. They are hosted on more expensive infrastructure, and should provide a bit better performance.

1PCT (A) and 1PCT0 (A) has 250 ADA fixed fee and will be closed in the end of Feb. Do not delegate to these two. Always pick one with 200 ADA fixed fee.

 

B pools are our first pools.

They have 1% variable fee, and 0 ADA fixed fee. They are hosted on regular infrastructure, and performs great.

  

 

Rewards

A pool can get a maximum of around 35.000 ADA in rewards per epoch (1 day). These rewards are given based on how many percent of all the produced blocks in the epoch a pool gets. If your pool gets 1% of all blocks, the pool will get the maximum reward.

Since many pools currently miss their blocks, the actual saturation point is lower than the theoretical. The actual point is currently around 65 million ADA, which means that great performing pools like 1 Percent Pool will usually reach the maximum rewards with 60-70 millions ADA delegated.

If one of our pools has more than 65 million ADA delegated, the pool risks hitting reward limit. This means that the same rewards will be split between more delegators, and give the individual delegator a worse reward.

All the red pools above are over 70 million in delegations, and some are much higher than that. If you are in a red pool, you should immediately switch to a green one.

 Example

Pool A has 1% variable fee, 200 ADA fixed fee and 65 million ADA delegated.
Pool B has 1% variable fee, 0 ADA fixed fee and 90 million ADA delegated.
 
Pool A gets 32 blocks in an epoch, and hits the maximum reward of 35.000 ADA.
Pool B gets 45 blocks, and also hits the maximum reward of 35.000 ADA.
 
Pool A subtracts the fixed fee (200) from total rewards, and then 1% of the rest. 34452 ADA is left for the delegators.
Pool B subtracts the fixed fee (0) from total rewards, and then 1% of the rest. 34650 ADA is left for the delegators.
 
Pool A splits 34452 ADA to 65 million ADA delegated, which gives a yearly ROI of 19,3%
Pool B splits 34650 ADA to 90 million ADA delegated, which gives a yearly ROI of 14%
 
Even though pool A has a fixed fee of 200, it still pays much higher rewards, due to not being saturated!
 
Almost all our B pools are over saturated, and fluctuate a lot. The A pools are not saturated yet, and will pay higher rewards.

What is saturation?

Once a pool is fully saturated, you can still delegate to it, but it will not earn more rewards for it. The rewards will simply be shared between more delegators, hence giving you less rewards. Always delegate to a pool that's open for delegation in the list above!
