How to Delegate

***IMPORTANT***

Delegating your stake to a staking pool NEVER requires you to send your ADA to a third party.  Anyone asking you to send them your ADA so that they can “stake” it for you is attempting to scam you. You are able to delegate your stake to legitimate stake pools without your ADA ever leaving your own wallet. ARCADIA stake pool will NEVER ask you to send ADA from your wallet to any address.

Look for Arcadia's "ADAMS" or "TESLA" Stake Pools
(Tickers: ADAMS & TESLA)

Once you have your rewards wallet working, (please see below for instructions), go to the delegation section of the wallet and browse the available stake pools for our pools, ADAMS and TESLA.  You should search for our pool using the ticker ID “ADAMS” or “TESLA”. After you make your selection, please be patient as it will take the current Epoch plus the entire next Epoch for your delegation choice to go active on the blockchain. This literally means your delegation choices may not go “live” until the THIRD DAY following your selection.

You can check that your mainnet balance was accurately captured using a balance wallet, which is created as part of the wallet restoration process.
