Lido Staking Pool

LIDO Nation White Logo

Lido Nation is a purpose driven staking pool on the Cardano network. It is a space for people to interact, meet, learn, and teach each other. When you stake with LIDO, you are part of a team where every voice counts.

When our pool is fully funded, delegators earn rewards every five days, automatically.

Unlike other networks where pool operators are in charge of meting out rewards, the Cardano staking reward system is fully automated and trustless. Rewards come directly from Cardano into your wallet. You are in control every step of the way.

When Lido Nation mints a block on the chain, you will receive rewards in your wallet at the end of the 5-day epoch.

Rewards are expected to be about 5% annually.

Each time Lido Nation mints a block, the pool retains 340 ₳ + 4% margin.
That 4% margin stays in the pool to fund charity causes you vote for, to pay delegators like you who contribute content and code to our site, and to keep the Cardano pool engine running.

24/7 Monitoring
1 full downtime since 2016. Our LIDO deployment is one of 8 enterprise cloud environments we keep happy and healthy. It’s our day job, not a gig or a weekend project. That means you can trust Lido Nation not to miss blocks; your stake with us is our top priority.

For the tech-heads

Kubernetes Powered
Enabling a host of super powers including rolling updates (aka near zero downtime upgrades) and self healing. This also means that if something really bad happens and we have to switch cloud providers, we could be back online in under 1 hr. K8s also lets us increase our RAM, CPU and disk with less than 1 minute of downtime for the producer, zero downtime for other nodes.

About the “rig”
16G RAM 3Cpd Coffee 32Gbps Network

Because we can scale up < 1 min, we reduce waste by not over provisioning our nodes keeping our cost super low! Our network is powered by Google’s well-provisioned, low latency, highly reliable Premium Tier global network, an extensive private fiber network with over 100 points of presence.
