Cardano: The base layer.
Networks, the combination is greater than the sum of the parts.
Helping run the base layer.
Highly Cost Efficient and Environmentally Sound
Running a node takes only a small investment in equipment (usually less than $400 USD), and isn't burdensome technically, so an engaged group of students with some guidance should have little trouble running and maintaining a stake pool. The community is very engaged and helpful, so there is always assistance to be had if it is needed. The network has been running since inception with no down-time, and no assets have been compromised. It is considered one of the most robust and secure networks in the world in large part due to its measure twice/cut once approach.
If you are interested in running a node for your community or you are a current node operator interested in helping others create a node for their community please inquire below and we will introduce you to the School Stake Pool Incubator Program.
