THANK YOU to all delegates!
We secure the network TOGETHER.
Each node is configured using industry best practice - firewalls, offline keys, discrete hosting, and more. Most of the system is automated to prevent human mistakes.
We have redundant servers spread out all over the world. Not only does this ensure our blocks transmit fast and efficiently through the network, it also prevents any local disaster from affecting performance.
Each server is hardened against denial of service attacks. We keep some relays private as an extra precaution to prevent a targeted attacks.
The cluster is a hybrid of bare-metal and cloud servers. This allows us to utilize the strengths of each system type to provide a robust network of nodes.
Higher pledged pools pay higher rewards. OASIS is among the top 1% highest pledged pools and is self-funded.
OASIS rewards are ~0.06% higher due to pledge.
Nodes are kept above the minimum required specifications. Servers can be easily added and upgraded to follow any protocol demand. We're ready to scale with Cardano.
Standbys are used during upgrades and in the unlikely event of server failure, another automatically and immediately takes it place.
By pairing time syncronization with many distributed relays, we are able to keep communication delays to a minimum.
- The OASIS way -
The main goals of every stake pool is to be online at all times and forge every block assigned. OASIS strives to be among the best stake pools on the network. Here are some of the ways we do it.
Before each epoch we calculate our slot-leader schedule. When we know the schedule, we can plan any server maintenance around it to ensure the node is performing at its best when the time comes for it to produce a block. During upgrades, there is always a standby active to ensure no downtime.
After a block is made it needs to reach all the other nodes in the network very quickly (ms time-scale). OASIS has multiple relays distributed all over the world and each of these is communicating with different relays from other pools. We are able to reach every node in the network in just a few jumps. We do not make all of these relays public.
Each virtual server is hosted in a different data center, and some nodes are on bare metal servers. All of them are in different parts of the world. The cluster has layers of redundancy; if one server fails another one automatically takes its place. This is how we ensure, even in disaster, we are minting all our assigned blocks.
Pledge is the amount of stake the pool operator has in their own pool; you could call this their commitment to Cardano and the pool. Because the network prefers higher pledged pools, they pay better rewards than lower pledge pools. OASIS is within the top 1% highest pledged pools and is self-funded. OASIS has an effective 0% margin fee due to pledge benefit.
OASIS voluntarily reports its current block height PoolTool.io. By comparing OASIS' block height to the height other pools are reporting, you can see that we, the pool, are online, healthy, and up to date.

Frequently asked questions
When should I see rewards?
Rewards begin getting payed out four epochs after you delegate. If you delegate during epoch 200 you will not start seeing rewards until epoch 204. Be patient, your rewards are coming. Reward distribution is handled 100% by the protocol and is not controlled by the pool operator.
How do pool fees work?
Do I have to redelegate my rewards or any new ada?
Your stake includes your entire wallet and all ADA that it controls. Even if you add ADA to your wallet later on it will be added to your stake without any input from you. Your rewards are automatically delegated even if you never touch them.
What is saturation?
Saturation is the point when a pool has the amount of stake that the network finds ideal and is displayed as a percentage. Pools offer increasing rewards up to 100% saturation; then rewards decrease once it is over-saturated. There are a few apps that can notify you if your pool becomes over-saturated.
Are my ADA safe?
Why is pledge important?
Pledging provides a mechanism to encourage a healthy commercial ecosystem on the Cardano blockchain. The pledging mechanism is also necessary to protect the system against Sybil attacks. In a Sybil attack, someone with very little personal stake creates hundreds of pools with low margins and tries to attract the majority of stake to their pools. If this succeeds, they can control consensus and engage in double-spending attacks, create forks, censor blocks, and damage or even destroy the system.
