Powering the Cardano ecosystem since 2019



Cardano is the world's leading proof of stake blockchain solution, designed from first principles and independently peer reviewed by industry experts. This science first philosophy never seen in the cryptocurrency space before has created long lasting solid foundations for growth enabling rapid innovation.


CCardano provides a scalable, efficient, decentralised means for companies and individuals to build and govern DAPPS, systems and societies of unparallelled security in a sustainable way.


To provide a robust stakepool solution PlanetStake operates on a mixture of bare metal, VPS and cloud servers.

Through the use of failover scripts, 24/7 monitoring and alerting methods we are able to see what's going on with our nodes and respond quickly if needed.


PlanetStake supports the mission and objectives of Cardano becoming the world's most used blockchain solution.


We've been actively helping since 2019, contributing in pre-ITN testing, the ITN testnet, Haskell testnet and mainnet. By operating a stakepool we continue to help secure and decentralise the Cardano network every day.

We appreciate your support in helping us continue to help Cardano.



Stake pool fees consist of fixed cost and commission.

The fixed cost pays for computer hardware, internet, and server maintenance required for the stake pool to operate. All stake pools must charge a minimum fixed cost of at least 340 ADA per epoch. Commission is the percentage of reward per epoch each stake pool charges for the service they offer. Pool reward = (blocks created x ADA per block) - Fixed cost - Commission Individual delegator reward = Pool reward x Individual stake / Total pool stake


This pool has three high-speed relay nodes geographically distributed around the world, and so is most likely to create each block and quickly propagate each of those blocks throughout the network. This stake pool has 50K ADA pledge to ensure it provides investors with excellent ROI. Fixed cost: 340 ADA Commission: 0.8%

What is Shelley

Shelley is the long-awaited second stage of Cardano's planned evolution, adding both decentralization and proof of stake (POS) to the ecosystem. This is a very important milestone for the Cardano project, advancing forwards on the path to becoming the number one cryptocurrency in the world. The five stages of planned evolution are: 1. Byron - Third Generation Cryptocurrency with Wallet 2. Shelley - Decentralization and Staking 3. Goguen - Smart Contracts and Defi 4. Basho - Scalability and Interoperability 5. Voltaire - Governance, (Voting)

Proof of Stake (POS)

Proof of Stake is similar to the older Proof of Work, (POW) systems, only significantly more efficient. While Bitcoin uses the power of a small country to mine the blocks that protect it's network, Cardano's POS system has been designed by the world's greatest minds, then independently peer-reviewed, to deliver superior global results on the power needed to run a single home. This is millions of times more efficient than the older POW systems. This POS system uses stake pools to create blocks and protect the network. ADA owners are then required to delegate stake to these stakepools in exchange for ongoing rewards. The more equally dispersed this stake is across all stakepools, the safer the network becomes.

Staking Rewards

Staking Rewards are paid every 5 days at the beginning of each epoch in ADA and sent directly to the address of the account holder, with an expected return on investment (ROI) of 5% to 6%. This is globally equivalent to approximately 1.8 billion ADA per year distributed as compensation. To maximize your rewards, it's best to avoid staking to saturated pools. When choosing a stake pool for the best ROI the winning strategy is to fully understand the following relationships: 1. Margin % 2. Fixed Cost (340 ADA minimum) 3. Pledge 4. K Factor (currently 500) 5. Stake A pool becomes oversaturated once it's stake reaches the Total Global ADA, (over 31 Billion ADA) divided by the K factor. Once oversaturated any pool's ROI will fall significantly.

Potential Risks

Cardano gives you complete control over your funds and provides a secure platform for sending and receiving ADA. If you delegate your stake to any stake pool shown in the official Daedalus or Yoroi wallet, there is no risk involved, you maintain full control of your funds and are free to withdraw or spend your ADA at any time. IMPORTANT: Sharing your wallet seed phrase or spending password with anybody is extremely dangerous because they then have complete control over your wallet's funds. Never share this information with anybody, even if they ask for it or seem like they are trying to help! If anybody asks for this information then they are a scammer and are trying to steal your ADA.


All costs are included in the official Daedalus and Yoroi wallets and consist of both fixed and variable costs. Each stake pool has its own fee structure and must charge a minimum fixed fee. This fixed fee will be distributed to all ADA delegated to that pool. Total Cost to Delegator = (Fixed Cost + Commission) x Total ADA in Pool / ADA in Pool

Staking Options

Cardano provides free and easy tools to use, ensuring you always have full control over your ADA. Delegating to multiple stake pools: All ADA within the delegated address will be delegated to the stake pool of your choice. So if you would like to delegate to multiple stake pools, you will first need to create and divide your ADA between several addresses, before being able to delegate to each stakepool of your choice. Spending ADA: Once your ADA is delegated to a stakepool, you are still able to transfer ADA into or out of that account as often as you like. The transfer will be immediate and the remaining funds will continue to be delegated to your chosen stakepool earning you rewards. Re-delegation to another stake pool: If you want to delegate your ADA to another stake pool, simply select a new stake pool from the official Daedalus or Yoroi's wallets and choose the option to stake to your new pool. Rewards from the new stake pool will be delivered at the beginning of the epoch after next, and until these rewards are received you continue to earn rewards from your existing stakepool. Choosing not to stake: If you no longer want to stake, you have the option to undelegate using the official Daedalus and Yoroi wallets. Selecting this option prevents you from selecting another staking option until the epoch after next.

Rewards Timing

While staking rewards are paid every 5 days, (1 epoch) on the Cardano blockchain there is much more to understand about the timing of the rewards. Please carefully study the pictures below to fully understand when rewards are paid: Cardano Rewards Timing The picture above shows how when you delegate to any pool it will take 4 epochs before you receive rewards from your chosen pool. This is the same for any delegation or redelegation to any pool you choose to stake to and cannot be changed as it is a fixed part of the Cardano code. Cardano Rewards Timing The picture above shows the shortest and longest timings between delegation or redelegation and rewards from your new pool. It's important to realise you do not lose any rewards when changing pools. When you change pools you will carry on receiving rewards from your old pool until the rewards from your new pool begin to be paid.
