Welcome to Chicando

Chicando is an independent stakepool. Supporting a decentralized world.

About this pool

In the spirit of a healthy decentralized cryptocurrency ecosystem I am not using any centralized "cloud" resources to run this stake pool.

Despite being 100% self hosted; I've taken numerous measures to ensure 99.9% uptime and 0 missed leader elections. This includes redundant hardware, automated deployments, monitoring and alerting, backup power, test systems, infrastructure as code, etc...
