Staking.rocks is a dedicated stake pool operator for the Cardano blockchain network, and a passionate supporter of the project. Join us in our journey to upgrade the world's finance infrastructure by staking with us!
what we do
We operate a cluster of servers across the globe that comprise our stake pool. Stake pools are participants of the Cardano blockchain network that produce new blocks that get added into the chain. Our pool is:
You can buy from crypto exchanges or swap services.
Transfer your ADA from the exchange and into your wallet.
Delegate to our stake pool and start earning ADA rewards!
total ADA staked
total ADA pledged
Our choice of server configuration and components has been very carefully considered. It's an application of more than a decade of experience in mission-critical server administration for commercial use.

Staking is really just holding your ADA coins and registering them in the network as being "staked". You do this by delegating your stake to a stake pool like ours. This helps in securing the network from attacks. In return, the network protocol pays out rewards to those who staked their ADA coins. For a more detailed discussion, visit this article.
This is relative to how much you stake. The annual projected returns provided by IO Global (the developers of Cardano) is somewhere between 5% to 10%. You can also get an estimate yourself by using the calculator provided by Cardano here.
After you have finished delegating your stake, it will become "live" right away but not yet "active". It will become active after the current and the next epochs have ended. An epoch is a period of 5 days in the Cardano network.
When your stake is active, you will be entitled to rewards for blocks produced by the stake pool. Supposing the pool minted blocks in that first epoch when your stake became active, you will receive your rewards for that epoch after 1 more epoch has passed.
For example, if you delegated in epoch 220, your stake becomes active in epoch 222. Supposing the pool minted blocks in epoch 222, you will receive your first rewards in epoch 224. For blocks produced in epoch 223, you will receive rewards in epoch 225 and so on, every 5 days.
Yes. The rewards you earn accrue with your original staked amount. When rewards are received, the balance of your rewards account increases; and consequently, your delegated stake also increases. It compounds automatically every epoch (5 days)!
If you don't have any other crypto coins yet — like BTC or USDT — you can buy some at crypto exchanges like Binance or Coinbase. You'll need them to buy ADA.
When you already have USDT or BTC, you can use that to buy ADA at those same exchanges also. From there, you can then withdraw your ADA into your own wallet. Make sure you use one of the supported wallets with staking functionality already available. We recommend Daedalus or Yoroi.
If you already have USDT or BTC in your existing crypto wallet, check if you can exchange them to ADA directly from your wallet. Some crypto wallet apps provide this functionality, like the Crypto.com wallet and the Atomic wallet.
