Globally Distributed Stake Pool

Stakeynet operates eight voting nodes around the world: Sao Paulo, San Francisco, New York, London, Frankfurt, Mumbai, Seoul, and Sydney. Hot wallets were not rolled out until the network host providers rolled out patches for the recently disclosed speculative execution vulnerabilities. Stakeynet also maintains a separate testnet pool where patches from upstream will be tested before being pushed to this production service.

Decred Stake Pool Overview

A stake pool is used to delegate your voting powers to a third party (the pool). The pool cannot steal your funds.

Participating in a stake pool is perfect for people who wish to take part in Decred's proof of stake voting but can't due to:

  • Not wanting to keep a constantly unlocked wallet
  • Lack of a realible/low latency Internet connection
