Unmatched Support
We provide phone and email support for all of our delegates. We understand that many of our community members are not tech or crypto nerds.

We host weekly meetups (currently online due to Covid). Visit our connect page for all the ways you can reach us.
Best in class servers
Our servers are run and managed by professionals whose only job is to manage and run servers 24/7 365/6 days a year. We run our Cardano nodes on the same servers powering other services you've come to rely on everyday, like Google and Pokemon Go. What this means for you is that our servers are always online and available to process transactions, earning you and the causes we support the optimal amount of $$$$. Visit our pool page for more technical details.
4% for community development and investment
Of all the rewards that come in, we keep 4% annually. All 4% goes towards charities you pick, paying LIDO nation community members like yourself to write code and content for the site, and grants for local community educational projects. See our financials page for full records of our spending, more details, and breakdowns.
