How to buy Ada

Is there a minimum or maximum amount that one can stake with Lidonation

Darlington Kofa

While we don’t have a minimum amount that one can stake with us, a lot of wallets require a minimum of 5 ADA balance to be able to start delegating if you’ve never done it before. The maximum amount to total stake that a pool can have is 64 Million ADA. We don’t have a maximum!

This is a pending comment that is awaiting approval
