Automated Saturation Notification Service

Maximum rewards at all times

In order to earn maximum rewards it is best not to delegate to pools which are oversaturated or close to 100% saturation. You can see the current saturation levels of each stake pool at the pool details info cards at the top of this page or at the statistics page.

CardanoCafe's automated saturation notification service informs you automatically in the event of oversaturation.

Enter your mail address to enjoy our automated notification service for free. In the event of one of our pools is oversaturated you will get notified automatically to shift your delegation to a different pool. This way you do not need to check the saturation levels of our pools manually - you can lean back, enjoy a cup of coffee and the highest possible rewards at all times.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Do my ADA get locked when delegating?

No, you will always have full control of your Cardano assets. Your assets will remain in your wallet at all times. Also when your coins are delegated, you may withdraw or transfer them at any time. Important: It is not necessary to send ADAs to anyone for the purpose of delegating / staking!

Can I split my delegation to multiple pools?

In Daedalus and Yoroi, there is no built-in split-feature to delegate your funds to multiple pools at once. It is only possible to have one active delegation per wallet. Therefore, if you would like to delegate to two or more pools at the same time when using Daedalus and Yoroi, we recommend to create one wallet per pool you would like to delegate to. When using ADALite wallet, delegating to multiple pools is supported by default. You can read more about it here.

After Delegation: When will I receive my rewards?

A question we often get asked is, “How long does it take until rewards get paid out?” Please have a look at this chart.

If you delegate your ADA during epoch 0, CardanoCafe - or any other stake pool - will include your stake in the process of block-producing two epochs later. This is how the Cardano ecosystem works. Again, two epochs after that you will begin receiving rewards. This is the case in any epoch you begin delegating your stake in. One epoch is exactly five days long. Therefore, you will begin receiving staking rewards about 20 days after you delegated. The number of days may shift a bit depending on when exactly your delegation became active.

Does my computer need to stay online to earn staking rewards?

Once delegated, your computer does not need to stay online!
