What is Vantica Trading Stake Pool (VTRA)?


A stake pool is an Internet node that holds the ADA stake of various stakeholders (delegators) in a single entity. A Stake Pool processes transactions and produces new Blocks. Cardano uses a proof-of-stake consensus protocol known as Ouroboros for the processing transaction, reward distribution, and block production.
Ouroboros demands several nodes online to maintain a well-distributed network at any moment. This is why is very important that keep online Stake Pools on a 365 24/7 basis. With this service level, the Stake pool: 1 Contributes to the Cardano network health.

2 Guarantees the production of blocks to distribute the rewards among ints stakeholders.




What is Stake Delegation?


Cardano holders can delegate their ADA to a Stake Pool. It allows ADA holders to participate in the health of the network, and also get rewards in the form of ADA, proportional to their stake in the pool. Delegators never lose control over their ADA. Delegation does not mean the transfer of funds to the Stake Pool or anyone else.




Can you spend or transfer your delegated ADA?


Of course. Delegated ADA is not locked. You can withdraw your ADA and spend it as needed. The only ADA that is locked is the ADA inside the Stake Pool Pledge account. This account is used and maintained by the Stake Pool owners and operators. Delegating to a Stake Pool has no conditions or time commitments.




What is Stake Pool saturation?


To favor the even distribution of ADA stakes between Stake Pools, when a single pool gets too large, the protocol penalizes its rewards making that specific pool less attractive to delegators. The saturation mechanism is implemented in the consensus protocol (Ouroboros) to prevent network centralization. The more numerous and geographically diverse the network’s Stake Pools, the better. Daedalus wallet shows each pool’s saturation percentage.




What happens to my ADA rewards?


When you receive ADA rewards they become part of your original stake and, accordingly, your rewards account raises by the same amount.
