About us


The block producing node runs on a Mac Mini 16GB and relay nodes on Raspberry Pi's 4 with 8GB Ram and 500GB SSD harddrive


We are located in a beautiful vineyard municipality in the Canton of Zurich in Switzerland


 Our pool consumes 40 Watt and is supplied with 100% renewable energy, mostly by hydropower plants from Switzerland and abroad.

Our Missions

As a small and independent single stake pool operator, our primary mission is to strenghten the decentralization and securitiy of the Cardano blockchain. At MINI Pool, we specially care about the environment and that's why we decided to run our stake pool with energy efficient hardware and renewable energy. 

Our Charity Mission


We donate 1/3 of the pools mining rewards to ATKYE, a Swiss charity organization which supports the scholarization of children in the coastal region of Kenya (Kilifi County) through its own school and partnerships with other schools.

We provide the tools and instructions to run a Cardano full node on energy efficient ARM64 devices, such as Raspberry Pi's, Mac Mini M1, etc.

Interested in running your personal Cardano Full Node? Then check out our GitHub project!


We are member of alliances that promote decentralization, sustainability as well as mutual support between smaller pools. If you want to browse around for more Stake Pools or just out of curiosity to know what is currently going on with the alliances, we recommend you to visit their pages. You can find the link here on the right.

Armada Alliance

The Armada alliance was formed in efforts to build a sustainable community of decentralized, low-cost, and energy-efficient stake pool operations on the Cardano blockchain

What is staking and why is it important?

Staking is a type of passive income generation. The idea behind staking is that you can support a stake pool (such as ours) with your Cardano ADA coins by delegating your coins to a stake pool of your choice. The higher the delegated amount of a Stake Pool, the higher the chance that the pool will produce blocks. And for each block produced, the pool and its delegators are rewarded with new ADA coins. In general, the return for each delegator is about 3-5% per year. That is, if you stake 100 ADA at a Stake Pool, you will have between 103 ADA and 105 ADA in a year.

Staking is not a purely randomly invented concept to make money easily, but it is a core feature of a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain. It is a system that ensures the security and decentralization of a PoS Blockchain. If you want to learn more about this topic, there is a lot of documentation on the web
