JUNO is a community stake pool operation for the Cardano blockchain

We support the decentralization and security of the Cardano network by running a stake pool. Our goal is to make the staking experience for our delegators as smooth as possible by generating the best possible returns on stake. In order to achieve this we provide a high resilient infrastructure and network connectivity to guarantee 24/7 uptime.

Next to providing a professional stake pool service we will develop community and commercial grade solutions on the Cardano blockchain.

Geographically distributed

Our stake pool JUNO infrastructure is running on bare metal servers. We make use of several data centers in different geographical regions. Our servers are located on several locations in Europe to ensure an excellent network connectivity and to support the decentralization and security of the Cardano network.

Resilient

Our infrastructure is highly resilient to ensure that our stake pool can produce blocks under any circumstances.

Monitoring & Alerting

We make use of active monitoring and alerting on our infrastructure to ensure nearly 100% uptime. In the event our infrastructure is compromised we are automatically alerted on our mobile phones so that we can respond immediately to the situation.

Cloud native

We are using the latest cloud native technology. This allows us to scale and to upgrade our nodes easily with the latest software. By using this technology we are independent of the host operating system and cloud service provider.

Secure

We did implement best security practices to ensure that our stake pool pledge and rewards are as safe as possible.

Environmental friendly staking

Our stake pool JUNO runs on renewable energy and has a low environmental footprint

Low fee

We have operational costs, we need to maintain our servers. Think about software updates, improvements, security etc.
For this we are calculating a very competitive variable fee of 1.45% till 12/31/2021.

Fixed costs

Fixed pool costs are mandatory to cover the costs of our hardware infrastructure. We are maintaining the lowest cost possible which are 340 ADA per epoch.

Pledge

We pledged our stake pool initially with 350K and will increase this over time. Our pool pledge is locked for a minimum of 3 years. Our pool rewards are automatically re-staked for the same period, guaranteeing the best ROS for delegators.
