Arthur J Goldman [AJG] have set up multiple pools across different geographical locations. Our enterprise level global stakepools are now LIVE with 2 million ADA pledge. We utilise Cloud based technology with 99.99% uptime, multiple relays for disaster prevention, 24/7 security and performance monitoring to ensure your rewards are secured.
As a delegator to [AJG] brand and stake pools, you will enjoy improved security, as measures have been put in place to keep unwanted traffic from impacting the performance of the pool.
What is Cardano?
Cardano is designed to be the worlds most advanced cryptocurrency. It is a 3rd generation blockchain developing a smart contract platform to deliver more advanced features than any previous protocols including Bitcoin and Ethereum. With its groundbreaking proof-of-stake mechanism and peer-reviewed academic research, Cardano achieves scalability, interoperability and sustainability needed for real-world applications. Cardano is designed to be the choice of large-scale, mission-critical Decentralised Applications (DApps) that will underpin the economy of our future.
The Arthur J Goldman [AJG] Pools are committed to the mission of Cardano, supports it’s initiatives and contributes to decentralization and security of the network.
What is Staking?
Staking is a process by which you are rewarded financially for delegating your Ada to the Cardano network. There are two options available to you as an Ada holder. You can run your own stake pool or you can invest with an already existing stake pool.
Operating and running a private stake pool comes at a huge price. For starters, you would need operational knowledge of how to run and maintain a Cardano node, as well as system operator skills, the experience of DevOps and server administration skills. You would also be required to invest a considerable amount of time, money and effort.
Investing with an already existing stake pool removes the need for any technical expertise, as all the hard work has already been done by somebody else allowing you to participate and gain the reward. By staking your Ada to Arthur J Goldman [AJG] stake pools you earn real rewards whilst having complete access to all of your funds 24/7, and these rewards are projected to be up to 9% in the first year.
You are always in complete control on your Ada when staking because you retain 100% ownership of your private keys and mnemonic phrases, so never give this information to anyone that asks.
What is Saturation?
Once a stake pool has too many delegators and Ada staked in it the pool becomes saturated, you can still delegate to the pool, but it will not earn you more rewards. The rewards will simply be shared between more delegators, hence giving you less rewards. For Cardano decentralisation it is our recommendation to stake in pools with less delegators and less than 100 Million Ada to be profitable.

“My goal is to educate and create technical awareness on how to run a successful stake pool. Cardano has a HUGE potential to change the whole blockchain industry from which a lot of people around the world would benefit. But to succeed, we need to build this on Solid Foundation – and one of the blocks in this foundation are pool operators and their mindset. I am willing to put my time in developing the right mindset and technical knowledge and awareness about the project so Cardano would become the gold standard in the blockchain industry.By joining Arthur J Goldman we are bringing the best of 2 worlds – business and technology, which is the cornerstone for successful stake pool so our delegators can have peace of mind” Lauris
