Annoucement:

ANZ pool was unable to mint blocks in epoch 256 and 257. We believe this was due to a technical issue on our end during the kes key pair renewal (an issue with the operational-certificate-issue-counter-file) which led to invalid blocks being created. We take responsibility for this and have taken steps to make sure issues like this are detected and resolved faster. This was our fault, we would like to compensate for lost rewards. Please enter your wallet address in the following anonymous form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScWDAesl4aqav7f9tw0Q1eQg0YY-fHAHJQwl7hjF3CjHiVyWA/viewform). We'll send an amount equivalent to the lost rewards.

About Us

Here at ANZ Pool we like to keep things simple.

We're committed to being your safe and reliable ADA staking partner based in the Australia and New Zealand region.

We are a group of Engineers and Scientists operating out of New Zealand.

To be specific, we are located in Auckland between Jacinda Ardern's house and Lorde's house.

We believe in redundancy. That's why, at least at the start, we are running on multiple cloud service providers. Our Cloud Service Provider 1 is Linode and Cloud Service Provider 2 is Microsoft Azure. The bare-metal backup is located in Auckland (somewhere between Jacinda Ardern's house and Lorde's house). We may modify the above setup depending on how we perform in the first month of staking going live. The above setup will make sure 24/7/365 network uptime.

We take security seriously and take multiple precausions to secure us agaist hacking. One being not telling everyone specific details on what those measures are :P Each of our relays run on independent machines and our block producing nodes are never made public.
