It’s worth noting that each pool involved has a stake of 62 million ADC. Also, the percentage of ADC coins that have been staked is more than 73%, representing an excellent performance in terms of decentralized finance (DeFi) development.

Pool.pm tweeted, “23 new Cardano pools with more than 62M₳ stake each have been created during the last 12 hours, increasing by about 1.5 billion ADA the total staked, now close to 74%,” tweeted poo.pm.”

In a follow-up tweet, Pool.pm pointed out that the 23 new Cardano pools are likely from Bison Trails, a company acquired by the leading crypto exchange Coinbase

What Is Cardano Stake Pool?

Stake pools may be either public or private. A public stake pool is a Cardano network node with a public address that other users can delegate to, and receive rewards. Private stake pools only deliver rewards to their owners.

Stake pools are run by a reliable operator: an individual or business with the knowledge and resources to run the node on a consistent basis. ADA holders can delegate to public stake pools if they wish to participate in the protocol and receive rewards, but do not wish to operate a Cardano network node themselves.

The more stake that is delegated to a stake pool, the greater chance it has of being selected as a slot leader. Each time it is selected and produces a block that is accepted onto the blockchain, it is rewarded, and these rewards are shared between the stake pool operator and stake pool delegators.
