It has been a fulfilling but tiring few weeks at WISH Pool as we went about improving the pool to make it more resilient and ready for the future. If you are one of our current delegators or are deciding to join us, here is a rundown of what’s been happening at WISH Pool:
We just setup a new hidden relay for resiliency and as an additional tool for testing. This will increase our overhead but this is something we are willing to spend on to benefit the pool in the long run.

WISH Pool Stake
As of this writing, WISH Pool has 20.8 million ADA in stake including 5.8 million in organic stake on top of the CF delegation. The CF delegation may be moving soon but thankfully we have reached a level of organic stake that should help us to continue minting blocks and earning good rewards for all delegators even when the CF delegation leaves.
Educational Charity Donation
We have reverted back to donating to our adopted educational charity so as not to neglect the needs of the students they support. The war in Ukraine is still raging but we felt the urgency to give donations has passed for now as more aid from various sources have come. We will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to divert our donations to this and other causes that need urgent assistance in the future.
We’ve had some good developments with WISH Pool and will continue looking for ways to improve it and add value to our delegators. Thanks to everyone who have been supporting us throughout this journey.
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!
