Cardano is a proof-of-stake blockchain that is secured by staking its native asset ADA.
Proof-of-Stake is exponentially more efficient than proof-of-work and has become the standard for securing blockchain networks with Cardano leading the way.
Earn between 4.5%-6.93% return-on-stake (ROS) on your staked ADA payed out in ADA!
If you are holding ADA then staking is for you. Why not make your ADA work for you and earn a passive income by staking?
Join a worldwide phenomenon.
In addition to earning a passive income, by staking your ADA with us, you will be joining a worldwide movement with the Cardano family. Cardano is going to become a gold standard in the blockchain and finance space and is committed to making a positive impact on people around the world.
"Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-kee-guy]) is a Japanese philosophy that translates into a direction or purpose in life, that which makes one's life worthwhile, and towards which an individual or group take meaningful actions giving them a sense of fulfillment.”
We are part of the Cardano community. In the spirit of Ikigai, our purpose is to establish a community trusted Cardano stake pool that will enable the world to participate in the ecosystem and share in its rewards.
Our vision is to help Cardano achieve decentralization & mass adoption around the world and amplify access to the financial instruments that people deserve.
At Cardano Ikigai, we believe in strong family and community reinforcement. Once we become an established stake pool, we will create annual scholarships for kids between the ages of 10 - 19 to pursue their dreams in education. Our scholarship program will help support the upcoming generation of leaders. We will be updating this section as we grow!
My wife and I started this pool for our two children who are five and eight (2021). We believe in encouraging them to learn and understand how the world works and how Cardano can improve it. Our hope is that they will grow up with the kindness and courage to make the world better.
My wife's experience includes public relations and marketing. Her current focus is sales enablement where she's become an executive and thought leader in the rapidly growing space.
My experience includes a deep understanding of supply chain and finance. My current focus is leading the implementation of ERPs in those fields and advancing the finance and supply chain industries as they continue to work through the pandemic and beyond.
Our pledge to start was 1,000 ADA. As of 10/12/20 our pledge has increased to 26,605 ADA. We are committed to exponentially increasing our pledge over the next year as the pool grows and investing in the community.
Fixed Fee : 340 ADA (absolute minimum)
Variable Fee : 2%

Cardano is the first blockchain ecosystem to be created through peer-reviewed research, to be secure enough to protect the data of billions, scalable enough to serve global systems, and powerful enough to forge organic change (Cardano.org, 2020)
"The Cardano roadmap is a summary of Cardano development, which has been organized into five eras: Byron, Shelley, Goguen, Basho, and Voltaire. Each era is centered around a set of functionalities that will be delivered across multiple code releases" (Cardano, 2020).
Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) was founded by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson & Jeremy Wood in 2015 and is the organization behind Cardano's development. Their vision is to provide a fair and exponentially more efficient financial system for the world's population (IOHK.io, 2020).
