ArmADA Stake Pool
ArmADA Stake Pool is running on a global scale infrastructure since the Incentivized Test Net (ITN) in December 2019. It is a combination of bare metal and servers hosted in Certified Data Centers around the globe. Due to this geographical redundancy we can ensure that the pool stays online even if one data center suffers from an outage. Working closely with the Cardano community from the beginning, allowed us to fine tune and improve our servers day-by-day. With over 20 years of experience working mostly on MacOS and Linux, we are utilizing the best security, and monitoring practices to provide our delegators the best return possible.
Beaver Cardano Stake Pool has been participating in the Cardano network since December 2019 on the Incentivized Testnet. I’ve been involved in cryptocurrency since 2012, where I was mining Litecoin. Since 2017, I’ve been closely following Cardano and believe it will revolutionize blockchain technology and the world. BEAVR is solely operated by myself and I hope to help educate the masses about Cardano, the problems it solves, and the improvements it makes to blockchain technology. Help us decentralize Cardano and let’s make history!

We are a partnership of two folks living in Toronto. Mike, brings his experience as a technical lead at multiple data and analytics organizations. He designs and builds cloud-based data warehouses, largely intended to analyze big data. Vivek brings to bear more than a decade of experience in data and analytics, as well as marketing strategy and execution. With strong industry experience and a passion for cryptocurrency, we can confidently move forward with this venture and responsibly manage this Canadian Cardano stake pool.
We really got involved in cryptocurrencies in the bull market of 2017 where we were fortunate enough to make a small profit at the peak of the market. This was the point at which we discovered Cardano and have been following the project consistently for the last several years. The goal of Cardano Canucks is to build a community of like minded folks who believe in Cardano and provide them a great stake pool experience.

We at GAIA Stake Pool believe that the values, technology, and decentralization Cardano uses will play a key role in returning balance to the world. The reliable and trustless systems on the Cardano network give every person control over their own finances, personal information, and voting power. With Cardano, we can change the world. GAIA Stake Pool donates 1/3 of our profit to charities that heal the Earth, and re-invests at least 1/3 of our profit back into pledge. Join us in making a better future - one where humanity and planet Earth thrive together! GAIA Stake Pool is operated by Brian Lee, an artist and designer with 7 years of experience in the entertainment industry, and 16 years of experience working with computers (repairs, networking, website creation and maintenance).
