Assurance Pool (Ticker: ASTCH)
We are lowering our Margin to zero and pledge to keep it 0% until at least January 1, 2023.
During this time, we are also commited to re-delegating all rewards to our pool "Pledge".
Locally owned and operated by partners and employees of a small IT shop in Mobile, AL USA. We have been in business for over 20 years, specializing in open-source network support, for small to medium sized businesses along the Gulf Coast.
Our Relays and Core nodes feature redundant 1Gbps fiber feeds, Quad Core Xeon, 16GB RAM dedicated servers; hosted in our very own, small, private datacenter.
Up to date nodes (currently v1.34.1, as of 03/30/2022).
Our hardware infrastructure of privately owned, re-certified Dell & HP servers, along with free collocation services (bandwidth and unmetered power) make for a very low cost and reliable pool operation. We are techies and love what we do. Our stake pool was launced in March of 2021 (epoch 256) and our parent company just granted a 5 year lease, as of January 1, 2022. We have a solid commitment to the ASTCH pool resources and almost zero overhead, until at least 2027. You can feel confident that we are running a long term, stable and sustainable staking operation.
Securely hosted; using a privately addressed, non-routable, Core Block Producer network (private subnet, broadcast only, non-routable VLAN). We currently run 3 relay nodes in 2 separate locations (connected via IPSEC encrypted GRE tunnels), with an additional fail-over block producer and relay node located at each site.
We believe in hosting locally, as it provides unmatched flexibility and agility, while helping to keep the Cardano network truly decentralized. We are committed to only running one stake pool and keeping it totally separate from the centralized and highly concentrated cloud providers.
“We have been doing so much for so long with so little, that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.” -Except for web design. We obviously don't do much web design;)
