Cardano on the Rocks – an Energy efficient Staking Pool


Introduction (Video)

A short movie says more than a thousand words about what awaits you in this course.


  • This guide requires experience with the Linux CLI and some general technical know-how. You’ll get step-by-step instructions, but bear in mind this won’t be a book-length guide packed with page-long explanations for the various intricacies of all of the pieces of the whole puzzle.
  • This project was started in early 2019 and developed together with the Cardano RUST implementation (Jormungandr) The Incentivised testnet started in December 2019 has multiple nodes running on RockPi hardware.
  • The Haskell implementation is still work in progress. The engineers at the moment fully focus on a MVP running on x86 64bit hardware and Linux operating system. Some test builds for aarch64 are up and online, but there is no official support given so far.

Credits: This project could only come into being with the support of several people, whom I would like to thank here in particular: Robert Kornacki, Franz Erlacher, Tim Harrison, RobJF

So, let’s get started!
