New Cardano Stake Pool Operators (SPO’s) are usually surprised when they realize that majority of their time is not taken up by the technical aspects of maintaining the pool. Instead, their time is mostly taken up marketing the pool in the hopes of attracting delegators. I’ve seen technical gurus fall by the wayside because they have difficulty talking about themselves and their pool. A lot of people especially in Asian cultures prefer not to talk about their achievements and let others do the talking.
That is why we were pleasantly surprised when WISH Pool was featured this week in not just one, but two social media postings made by other parties. Read on to know more about these two parties:
1. The Ardana Foundation
Ardana is a decentralized stablecoin hub which will bring the necessary DeFi primitives needed to bootstrap & maintain any economy to Cardano.
This week, Ardana featured WISH Pool in an article at Medium.com along with other pools that were chosen to be part of the Ardana Stake Pool Alliance (ASPA). Delegators to ASPA Pools will be incentivised when Ardana does their ISPO in the near future. Check out their article via this link:
2. Daniel’s Crypto Thoughts
Dan is a fast rising YouTuber who talks mostly about Cardano and crypto in general. In a Youtube video posted this week on Twitter, Dan talked about Cardano’s bullish fundamentals. He then proceeded to recommend his viewers to delegate to single pool operators like WISH Pool to help decentralize the network. If you want to watch Dan and his interesting views about Cardano and what he had to say about WISH Pool, take a look at this video:
WISH Pool rarely gets featured so for us to be featured twice in a week is truly special.
If you would like to see an older interview about WISH Pool when we were just starting, please take a look at this link from STAYK Pool:
Although some of the things discussed are outdated, this interview will help you to understand who we are and what are our motivations in running a Cardano stake pool.
In other news, WISH Pool just made its February donation to Akaraka:
WISH Pool is the creator of Cardano SPOT Check, an online resource for Cardano Stake Pool Operators for maintaining their nodes. We are actively helping several Cardano communities and were a recipient of the IOG delegation in 2021 and are currently a recipient of the Cardano Foundation delegation in 2022. If you like this article, we greatly appreciate if you will delegate your ADA to WISH Pool. You will be earning interest rewards while indirectly helping the lives of disadvantaged children. This is because WISH Pool pledges to give at least 10% of its own profit to educational charities so that successful students can help get their families out of poverty. Let’s help grow the community together!
