The non-custodial Cardano Staking

Staking on Cardano is very different to other blockchains. It is non-custodial, so your ADA never leaves your wallet. On top off this you will be able to move your ADA between each delegation snapshot.

Staking in a nutshell

Staking is cryptos answer to the interest earnings of a traditional savings account. But instead of giving a bank your funds as collateral for their own investments your delegated funds provide validation power to the decentralization of a blockchain. As compensation for a successful block validation the network will reward delegators with it's tokens.

Staking on Cardano

Cardano is counting in epochs. An epoch has five days, and staking decissions are offset by 2 epochs. The following graphic illustrates the process. You will therefore be eligible for rewards 2 epochs going forward after your re-delegation from one pool to another.

At the end of each epoch, a snapshot of your staking status is being taken.

Epoch 1

You Delegate your ADA to our Pool with ticker BIRTH.

Epoch 2

Your delegation will be delegated towards BIRTH.

Epoch 3

Your active staking Period begins with BIRTH.

Epoch 4

Your Rewards from staking with BIRTH are being calulated.

Epoch 5

Your payouts from delegating with BIRTH arrive in your wallet.

For example, you want to stake 200 ADA in a small pool because you support midwives with it, 200 ADA at another pool that runs a Facebook community, and 200 ADA at a pool that has programmed a Cardano Explorer. This is how you support projects in growing and decentralization.
