Fast facts about us:
Our cloud-based servers are located in three state-of-the-art datacenters spanning North America, Europe, and Asia.
Our hosting service provides a 99.99% uptime SLA with 24/7 on-site engineering support.
We operate three Cardano relay nodes, one in each datacenter, to insure our operations have failover redundancy and the very latest blockchain data. DNS resolution insures that communication with our relays always takes place with the relay having the smallest latency to the point of origin.
Our Cardano stakepools and relay nodes operate on dedicated cores of Intel Xeon Platinum 8000 series enterprise-grade server CPUs.
Our stakepools and relays each operate with 16 GB of RAM with additional swap space.
Our disk storage utilizes lightning-fast NVME SSDs to minimize latency due to disk IO operations.
Our stakepools receive a new block typically within 300 milliseconds after it is minted anywhere in the world. New Cardano blocks are minted on average every 20 seconds.
Our operations are fully ready for the upcoming "Alonzo" hardfork that will introduce smart contracts to Cardano.
We will invest all of our Cardano earnings back into our stakepool pledges for at least the first year of mainnet operation.
We have been running our stakepools since December 2019 at the start of the Shelley ITN. We have participated in the Cardano ecosystem since before that time on testnets leading up to the launch of the incentivized testnet.
