We are a single pool operator/owner stake pool. The owner/operator has over 22 years of professional IT experience and holds multiple certifications in system and network administration and digital forensics and incident response. We believe in the Cardano technology and want to be part of the community that makes it great.

Reasons to Stake with STAK3 Pool:

  • Although our overall pledge may seem small compared to other pools it accounts for the majority of our current Cardano holdings. As a result we have a strong incentive to run an optimized, efficient and secure pool. We are committed to reinvesting our operator rewards, after covering expenses, to increase our stake/pledge to make the pool more attractive.
  • Charity: In our personal life we all believe in using our success to benefit others and make the world a better place. As a result we are committed to sharing a portion of the operator rewards with various charitable causes that we believe in and donate to personally. We encourage you to checkout our charity page for additional information about these causes.
  • Numbers: We run our pool with a low operator fee of 1 to 2 percent to maximize the returns for those who stake with us.
  • Decentralized and Redundant: Our systems are geographically distributed and redundant so there is no single point of failure.
  • Assurance: Before operating on the mainnet we completed the Cardano Foundation Stake Pool Operator Course. We operated servers on the testnet to make sure our systems were performing optimally before configuring servers on the production mainnet. We continue to maintain a pool on the testnet to provide an environment where we can test features and upgrades to ensure stability before the changes are implemented on the production pool.


We strongly believe in improving the world we live in and providing assistance to those who need it. As a result we have personally supported a variety of charities in the past and will continue to do so in the future. We are committed to sharing a portion of the pool operator rewards with charitable organizations we believe in. We plan to publish those donations on our News page so follow along. Included below are a couple of the charities we plan to support.

Water for People

Healthy, safe drinking water is critical and Water for People aims to bring that to communities around the world.

CWS Global

When we see the type of projects CWS Global is involved in and their global outreach, it’s difficult to not be impressed and inspired. Here’s a little information on what they’re about:

“We have one goal: building a world where there is enough for all

After seven decades moving towards this goal, CWS has the faith and experience to know it’s possible. Working around the world, we’ve seen gardens flourishing in barren land. Migrants and refugees finding home even after every door has been closed. Houses standing strong against nature’s worst disasters. That’s the power of your compassion at work when it links to human resilience.”
