Why this pool?

  • Enable Play and Improve lives of people with disabilities. ALOOP pool donates 20% of operator pool rewards from block minting. Your Delegation Matters!
  • Promote Decentralization on Cardano network.
    By running a significant number of pools, multi-pools owners can gain enough power to control the network. Decentralization can prevent this from happening. We vowed and partnered with Cardano Single Pool Alliance (CSPA) to run One Pool Only Forever.

    #SoEveryoneCanGame

    AbleGamers

    My story starts in 2019.

    "I love video games, and my daily drive is the Sci-Fi Hardcore MMORPG EVE Online.
    At the 2019 EveVegas meetup, the Eve Online developer CCP, organized a Fundraiser for the benefit of AbleGamers Foundation.
    I attended the Fundraiser and this is where I learned about AbleGamers Foundation, their mission, who they are and what they do.
    I think with Covid pandemic we all realized, the negative effects of social isolation. Now, imagine impaired people who live their entire life in isolation.
    Gaming can make their lives better and fun and I believe this is the perfect time to raise awareness and promote AbleGamers mission.
    You can join this pool and be part of its mission, or you can help by making donations on their website here: #SoEveryoneCanGame"

    I was working on my site and did a search on AdaLoop and found a website adaloop.com domain similar to mine advertising RAY Network, other links MELD, Maladex, Sundae all pointing to RAY website. Wonder how many sites like this they have?
    Wanted to warn that, I'm not affiliated with this website in any way, or Ray Network.

    PIGY Token is Here
    About PIGY Token
    PIGY Token is a Cardano based cryptocurrency that is distributed by SPO as additional rewards to delegators.
    There are around 2,600 Stake Pool Operators right now. Over 30% of these operators have never minted a single block, which translates to about 1,000 of them. Cardano Foundation and IOG are currently doing their best to ensure the operators of small pools survive, but they only have a limited amount of resources. We as a community can help these blockless stake pools by giving incentives so the delegators are willing to move around to a smaller pool and keep moving around the pools so that it will help the small pools survive.

    Cardano Single Pool Alliance

    It's official. AdaLoop is now part of Cardano Single Pool Alliance (SPA)


    Cardano SPA – About

    "Who Are the members?
    Cardano Single Pool Alliance is a loosely connected group of separate stake pool operators who have all vowed to run a single stake pool for the sole purpose of providing the Cardano ecosystem with True Decentralization. Each member has unselfishly decided to forego the potential profit of running a stake pool in the hope of making Cardano one of the most resilient blockchain against any colluding or coordinated malicious attack from national governments, hackers, or the creator of the protocol. Each member strives to make his/her single pool profitable. However, when a respective stake pool reaches saturation, its stake pool’s operator channels help another SPA pool to reach saturation. An egalitarian decentralization of stake pools directly strengthens the resiliency of the Cardano network. "

    "Who We Are as A Group?
    As a group, the Cardano Single Pool Alliance is camaraderie, not an organized entity, of single pool operators. CSPA has no central authority or leadership. As a group, we aspire to an ideal – that only an abundance of single-owner-single-pool can shield Cardano against any attack. We are bonded together by a single focus – that each stake pool operator should operate a single stake pool in the Cardano ecosystem. We are not a corporation, a bureaucratic organization, a censorship entity, a Cardano policing agency, or a non-profit. Willing and caring SPO volunteers, instead of paid leaders, runs and operates The Cardano Single Pool Alliance. We have no leadership, board members, or CEO. We are a group of SPO with mutual trust defined by our voluntarism to accomplish a goal. To achieve our goals and maintain some sense of structure, we do have a “Participation of the Willing.” If you are willing to tackle a task on behalf of the CSPA, you are part of the core volunteer structure."
