Cardano Stakepool Q&A

1.What is staking?

Staking is the process of actively participating in transaction validation (similar to mining) on the proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain Cardano. πŸ’»

The advantages of Cardano staking are:

πŸ’ͺ User friendly to do in the official wallet softwares Yoroi and Daedalus.

πŸ’ͺ🏽100% Safe and Secure as the ADA never leaves your wallet.

πŸ’ͺ🏿No lock up period so you are free to move your ADA in and out your wallet.

πŸ’ͺ🏻Compound interest paid in ADA.

2.Why stake my Cardano ADA with BICEP?

Reasons why staking with BICEP is the right choice:

πŸ’ͺ🏻 High Return on Stake.

πŸ’ͺ Lowest Fees on the Network.

πŸ’ͺ🏿 Enterprise grade architecture and infrastructure.

πŸ’ͺ🏽25% of owner's profit donated to charity.

3. What is the "25 Epoch Challenge"?

For the next 25 Epochs (epoch 245 - epoch 270) I will donate 25% of all the Stakepool Operators (SPO) ADA profits to the charity "The Muscle Help Foundation" (Registered Charity No. 1096716).

I hope this might catch on as a trend for SPOs (similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge).

4. Why did you choose this charity?

I chose "The Muscle Help Foundation" as they do tremendous work supporting sufferers of Muscular Dystrophy (MD).

The charity has a small tight-knit team, consisting mainly of volunteers with one full-time paid head responsible for the overall management and operational activities, including core purpose delivery and fundraising initiatives.

MD refers to a group of genetic, hereditary diseases that weaken muscles in the human body. MD is characterised by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins and the death of muscle cells and tissue. There is currently no cure for MD.

5. When did you register the pool?

BICEP is a new stakepool registered on the 8th January 2021 😊

6. What is your stakepool's goal?

To be the strongest stakepool for our delegators! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏿

7. When do you donate to Charity?

I plan to make three donations:

To get the ball rolling I donated Β£25 on 30th January 2021. This is additional to the 25 Epoch Challenge.

*Update* After 10th epoch I donated Β£50 on 27th March 2021.

Calendar for the 25 Epochs

Plan set! πŸ’ͺ

8. Will you donate in ADA or fiat?

All donations will be in fiat GBP. We are not quite there yet but one day everyone will accept ADA! I truly believe Cardano will change the World!
