— Nimuë will bestow upon you the gift of freedom. Secure and reliable Belgium based stake pool perpetuating the Cardano vision.

Thank you for checking out our stake pool. We deliver maximum returns for our delegators with minimal fees. To aid decentralization we run our pool from home with a secure setup and a fast robust internet connection, accompanied by a second relay in the cloud.

As it is always warm, always sunny, Nimuë welcomes the shadow of the trees after becoming one with the water. Therefore, she’ll donate 5% of pool fees to #TeamTrees. We must revitalize the green lungs of Mother Nature, one epoch at a time. 🌴🌲🌳 Nimuë likes animals too and will therefore donate another 5% to Vétérinaires Sans Frontières. 🐐🐃🐫 You can track all donations.

Stake your ADA and delegate to Nimuë Lady of the Lake Pool. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

What is staking and why should you do it?

Cardano uses PoS (Proof-of-Stake) as consensus protocol, where the stake distribution (i.e. the amount of ADA everyone holds) determines who can add new blocks to the blockchain. This forms an alternative to PoW (Proof-of-Work) that is used in e.g. Bitcoin, and where the amount of hashpower (i.e. electricity spent) is used instead.

Blocks are created (also known as minted or forged) by stake pools in Cardano. There’re about 2,000 stake pools actively minting blocks. Nimuë Lady of the Lake Pool is one of them. Everyone who owns ADA can delegate their coins or stake to a pool of their choice. This means that their ADA counts towards the total stake delegated to the pool that is used to determine how many blocks the pool may mint. In return, you get a part of the rewards that the pool earns for minting the blocks.

Staking in Cardano is very safe and worthwhile:

How to stake your ADA and delegate to us?

You have to hold your ADA in a wallet to be able to stake it. If your ADA still rests on an exchange, you’ll need to install one first and transfer your ADA to it. As a bonus, your coins are much safer in your own wallet. Nimuë recommends Eternl or Nami Wallet. If you’ve got bigger holdings, a hardware wallet like a Ledger is advised.

Please be aware that fake versions of wallets are circulating, so make sure you’re installing an authentic one.

Eternl is a light wallet developed by some members of the Cardano community. Light means that it isn’t necessary to download the whole blockchain, so it’s fast and simple. You can install its browser extension for Chrome, Edge, Brave or Opera (recommended) or use it directly through the web app (not recommended). There’s also a mobile app for iOS and Android. It can visualize NFTs and the browser extension and web app have a DApp connector and can be paired with a hardware wallet.

Go to the staking tab, enter NIMUE in the filter field, click the delegate button next to our pool and sign the transaction.

Nami Wallet was the first wallet that could visualize NFTs and had a DApp connector. It’s a light wallet that exists as a browser extension for Chrome, Edge or Brave, but doesn’t have a mobile version. Nami uses only one payment address, which is against best practices, but it’s very easy to use and might be less overwhelming for beginners.

Open this delegation widget, click the connect button in step 1, give the widget access to the wallet, click the delegate button in step 2 and sign the transaction.

Yoroi is a light wallet developed by Emurgo. It can be installed as a browser extension (Chrome, Firefox or Edge) or as a mobile app (iOS or Android). The interface can be a bit buggy and cumbersome and doesn’t visualize NFTs nicely, but it’s a great choice if you want to use a hardware wallet on mobile. On iOS only Ledgers with bluetooth are supported however. The browser extension also has a DApp connector.

Go to the delegation list (browser extension) or staking tab and then staking center (mobile), search for NIMUE, click the delegate button and follow the instructions on screen.

Daedalus is the first and official Cardano wallet and is developed by IOG. There’re versions for Windows, macOS and Linux. A mobile version doesn’t exist. Because it’s a full node wallet, it validates all blocks and transactions and keeps a local copy of the entire blockchain on your computer. Therefore it syncs very slowly (especially if you haven’t opened it in a while), needs lots of disk space and is not recommended for most users. It’s a great choice however if you also want to interact directly with a cardano node. It can also be paired with a hardware wallet, but it doesn’t have a DApp connector or visualize NFTs nicely.

Go to delegation center and then the stake pools tab, search for NIMUE, hover, click the delegate button and follow the instructions on screen.

Other known Cardano wallets are AdaLite, Flint, Typhon, etc… You can find an overview of available wallets on CardanoCube.

Look for a staking or delegation section, search for our pool by ticker NIMUE or poold id 68d8505aea5a000e630f904f8741c1deec9135a729e5df770fe3b659 and follow the instructions on screen.
