Cardano Staking

Delegate your ADA to earn rewards and build the Cardano network.

Wallets that support delegation.

About Incrypture

Incrypture is a team of mathematicians, computer scientists, software developers and investors who have collaborated over many years. We are enthralled by the wild possibilities of cryptocurrencies and excited to support the Cardano blockchain. Over the last 30 years, we have wrestled math problems, developed trading systems in traditional assets and cryptocurrencies and applied data science to pattern analysis, machine intelligence, meteorology and investment management.


Incrypture uses cloud computing infrastructure to provide high performance, high security, and around-the-clock professional node support. Initial key features of the cloud computing infrastructure are dedicated CPUs with fast memories, solid state drives, fiber optic internet and dedicated firewalls. Our cloud computing infrastructure future-proofs the implementation by allowing easy geographical dispersion, fast resource allocation and scaling.

Staking Glossary


Staking is the new way blocks are produced in the Cardano network, instead of mining as in the Bitcoin network.
It costs 2 ADA to register a wallet to stake for the first time. After that switching between stake pools is free.
Stake pools are mechanisms for ADA holders to participate in the network and earn rewards.
The Cardano network has built-in incentives for stake pool operators that ensure decentralization and high participation. These incentives are analogous to the mining rewards in bitcoin.
No, ADA remains in the delegator’s wallet and cannot be stolen or lost from the pool.
No, the owner can withdraw their pledge of ADA from the stake pool at any time.
Approximately 5% on average. The calculation of rewards in ADA = [# ADA delegated x 5%/73] per epoch.
Pool saturation is a cap on the size of a pool after which staking rewards diminish. This mechanism disincentivizes any single pool from getting too large by reducing rewards after saturation. It is always better to delegate to a pool that is not saturated.
There can be some variations between pools. Basically, until pool saturation all well-run pools earn rewards largely proportional to the ADA in the pool. Thus, the approximately 5% APY is fairly constant across all pools that are managed properly. However, the size of the pool operator pledge has a small positive effect on the rewards, and the pool margin has a negative effect on rewards.
They are paid out approximately 15-20 days after delegating rewards are allocated. Rewards are automatically re-staked unless the delegator withdraws their stake.
