CrimsonPool for Cardano (ADA) Staking

Ticker: RED

Nov 6, 2022

CrimsonPool operates one stake pool in a private home in a small town in the midwest U.S.. If you would like to help decentralize the Cardano network and improve its robustness stake with us. We have room to handle more stake, a lot more stake.

Our main machine operates an AMD EPYC 7282 (32 threads) @ 2.8 GHz CPU with tons of ECC memory. Power consumption is 90 Watts.

We're connected to the internet via Comcast cable at 1.2 Gbps with backup provided by Starlink at 100 Mbps.

Backup electric power is provided by a 22 kW natural gas generator (Generac) with 8 second transfer response time. Each computer has its own local UPS for milliseconds response. There hasn't been a single grid outage ever since the generator was installed.

We have 320 Watts of solar power on site with automated sun tracking coupled to a 4.3 kWh, 24 volt LiFePO4 battery, although it isn't sufficient to power the EPYC 7282 24/7 it is sufficient to power a Topaz-2 NUC with a 12th generation Intel i5 processor (18 Watts) plus an Odroid H3+ (3 Watts). The Odroid H3+ is particularly impressive for low power consumption. The future of Cardano infrastructure is probably with these small low power computing devices.

We're currently at 6 million ADA in stake and we'd like to grow it to 10 million ADA or more. Join us.
