Welcome to Odin's stakepool!

Our goal

Odin's stake pool aims to provide the very best staking experience. With reliable service and high rewards. If you are interested in staking with team Odin don't hesitate to delegate to us. We are looking forward to managing your delegation. Follow Odin on twitter to receive the latest updates.


Pool Status

The pool is operational, and you can verify that our relays are online here. You can also follow our progress over at ADApools.org, where you can see lots of statistics for the pool. In addition to the normal public statistics, we have chosen to also publish some internal performance data with ADApools showing the internal workings of our nodes. This data is updated approximately once every 30 minutes and allows you to follow our progress and see for yourself that our nodes are operational.

Message from the operator

I'm an experienced system administrator and software developer, with years of experience from managing servers and developing cutting edge code for a wide variety of research projects and academic institutions. I have extensive experience working with and administrating Linux systems and servers. Over the years I have worked on many IT-projects both professionally and for fun on my spare time.

Over the last few years I have spent considerable time working on crypto related projects, and I have experience from running and maintaining many different blockchain wallets and participating in the network consensus using both traditional mining as well as staking and masternodes.

I apologize for the web page, my frontend skills might need some work... However I know what is required to maintain a safe and reliable server infrastructure, and I'm hoping to use my skills to provide a very good staking experience for everyone using our pool.

As the leader of Asgard, I have been keeping an watchful eye on what is going on with the humans in Midgard recently. We are most impressed by your recent exploration of what you mortals call "Crypto currency". While we normally adhere to a very strict non-interference policy regarding human activities, considering recent developments the Asgards have decided to play a more active role in your efforts. Also we feel a bit embarrassed after what Loki did to Satoshi... a very sad story indeed. So, as a first step we have decided to support your Cardano network by running a stake pool.

Hardware

The pool is hosted in a professional German data center. The data center have multiple independent high-speed internet connections, and to further ensure high availability it is equipped with both batteries and a backup diesel generator.

Our block producing node is protected by several relay nodes. We have three public relays that are registered on chain, and we have some additional private relays standing by as backup for extra redundancy. Both the core node and each of our relays are running on separate VPS servers, each with a minimum of 4 CPU cores, 8GB of RAM, and equipped with SSD storage. The main block producer have 6 CPU cores and 24GB of RAM. In addition, in the unlikely case that the data center would be unavailable, we have a local bare metal server available, ready to take over as a backup solution. Overall this is a very solid setup, and using professional data centers, this is significantly more reliable than running the pool from someones home.

This setup is more than enough to provide a good and reliable service at this moment. And we are of course prepared to improve our setup as needed to keep up with the latest development of the Cardano blockchain.
