 What is a Stake Pool Operator (S.P.O.)? 
In P.O.W. (proof of work) blockchains ....Miners (hardware/node providers) spend their rewards on short term hardware and Power.  This dumps on price without contributing to software development or creators.
BTC Miners are in it for their own self interest and profit, and owe nothing to the users and holders.  They control the network and upgrades.

In contrast, Cardanos Proof of Stake (POS) blockchain is secured through the consensus of public stakepool operators, that validate transactions and facilitate throughput and computes on both a Cardano Service Layer (computes) and the Cardano Transactional Layer.          They receive rewards based on "popularity", this can be measured by free market "Delegation or User Staking".

SPOs actually promote and finance network development or nonprofit/charity work.  As SPOs gather more delegations they produce more frequent blocks

If SPOs dont serve stakeholders....their delegators will dwindle and the SPO will fail, ensuring only productive SPOs reach the top.
  This benefits the network as a whole.

Delegating is much like "voting" for a team.  Rewards are based on the amount you delegate and the pool performance over time.

How Should You choose a pool?

1. choose a Baremetal Pool to significantly reduce centralization and censorship
2. choose a pool that appeals to your fundamental values plus ability to buildout network.
3. redelegate often.....and diversify your support!
 4.  Choose ferociously.  Choose LION  :)

Dentralization...starts with you. 

Please consider single pool and Bare Metal operators for all of your delegations!
Bare Metal Single SPOs reduce the risk of L1 censorship on big data centers such as Amazon AWS, Digital Ocean, OVH, Azure, Hetzner...and more!

See graph below....37% of Cardano relays reside on AWS alone!

Cardano Network Relay Nodes

Our Mission

To provide the best value possible to ALL of our delegators.  We will independently support Devs and Innovators working on the Cardano Ecosystem, funding a variety of needed hardware,  tools,  code and utility!

Our BareMetal 

AMD Threadripper Pro 5975wx, Air cooled
8 channels of 256GB of ECC memory
BareMetal relays : Intel 13800 / M.2 Raid 10/ 5800Mhz DDR5 ECC
2.5GB Fiber trunk.
UPS and backup power generator.
Experienced DevOps with multiple co-locations.
Globally Distributed Baremetal.

At LION,  there is no chance of shared resources throtting, memory leaks or cross compute hacks.  All cpus are Cardano-node dedicated with low overhead, fast RAM and RAIDED Enterprise M.2 SSDs, on hardened OS.

Our respect goes to all of the builders and contributors of the CARDANO Ecosystem.
Our mission is to provide reliable block production, maximize delegator REWARDS and pay devs to build cool stuff!

Mulitdelgation is a new feature for 2024, supported by most wallets. It allows you to stake to mulitple pools from one wallet!  Please consider [LION] as one of your Multidelegation options!

You are ALWAYS in custody of your ADA, you will never be asked to send ADA. Never give your secret seed words to ANYONE.

Your funds are never at risk and always remain in your control on Layer 1.

Not having to time lock your coins is called Liquid Staking.....a great Cardano innovation. :)  Move them any time.
