To delegate stake to Pumpkin’s Pool and start earning rewards, delegate to our vote account
If you’re not sure where to start, you can use one of the following wallet guides or staking websites
Pumpkin is a very vocal and incredibly friendly 3 year old domestic longhair cat.
Some of her hobbies include meeting new people and eating wet food 😃
We’re committed to doing the right thing for the environment, which is why we participate in the Community Solar program.
By staking with Pumpkin’s Pool, you keep Solana distributed and secure.
We’re powered by some of the latest and greatest server technology available.
So here’s the thing: We actually care about our mission. A lot. The planet matters, and together we can make a difference.
To that end, we’re giving 100% of staked rewards directly to our delegators. There are no fees. We operate at 0% commission.
This is subject to change, however. In 2023, we will reasses our business model and decide on a commission rate that will best accomplish our mission. If 0% still works, so be it. If not, delegators will be notified well in advance of the projected commission rate change, and given ample notice to redelegate if they wish to do so. This will be posted here on the Pumpkin’s Pool website, and also in the Pumpkin’s Pool Discord (linked above under Community).
Regardless, our promise remains exactly the same: 5% of all profits go directly to providing clean energy and improving the welfare of animals without homes.
Pumpkin’s Pool is hosted in a building with very tight physical access controls, a UPS backup, a daily automated backup system, and has 24/7 monitoring and alerting.
Validators must manage three important keypairs:
The first two keys are required for validator operation and must remain on the Validator server at all times. The third keypair is the Authorized Withdrawer Keypair, which is stored offline in cold storage in an actual vault. There is absolutely no risk of the key being compromised as it is not physically connected to a computer.
No, this is not possible. You remain in full control of your tokens at all times, even if the validator goes offline. This is because the record of your delegated stake lives on the globally distributed blockchain, and not just on any one validator.
You will always be able to reclaim your tokens no matter what.
