Cardano Blockchain Stake Pool Operator

Ticker: BHMT

What is Behemothpool?

Behemothpool is a staking pool dedicated to promoting true decentralization of the Cardano blockchain. Our mission is to participate in the Cardano community and run the blockchain node with sustainable energy. In practice this means utilization of wind and solar energy to power the node hardware and ultimately build our own solar energy system.

Behemothpool is part of the Armada Alliance aiming to minimize the node energy consumption.

Single pool operator.

Dedicated to run only a single stake pool to promote the decentralization of the Cardano network. We want to see the blockchain healthy and secure in all aspects. Thus the Behemothpool fully shares the vision of the original developers.

Behemothpool is a proud member of the Single Pool Operator group at Adapools.

Forever low fees.

Because Behemoth stake pool does not utilize cloud computing services and only runs on Raspberry Pi hardware the running costs can be kept minimal. And the margin should never rise beyond 1.5 %.

Rewards for delegators.

NEW!!! Behemothpool is a PigyToken distributor! Delegators are rewarded $PIGY based on their amount delegated. To receive $PIGY the delegation must be maintained at least 4 epochs (more details on the Delagate page).

It is only fair that those who support the node most are also benefiting from their efforts and trust. While the pledge to begin with is very modest the plan is to keep increasing the pledge through block production milestones. This will also increase the total reward per block (as explained in Cardano documentation) thus enabling the delegators to earn more in the upcoming epochs.

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”

Robert Swan, Author

Sustainability is a key-word to remember. Everybody should get involved and contribute to brighter future by small day-to-day action.

With collaborative effort the task is not impossible, as it is true that from small streams form great rivers.

Node architecture

The Behemoth staking pool is built on single board Raspberry Pi computers. This is one feature allowing lower fees on our node.

Block producer node:

  • Raspberry Pi 4 B 8Gb
  • RAM: 8 Gb
  • SDD: Samsung SDD 1 Tb
  • Kernel: Linux Ubuntu 21.04

Relay node1:

  • Raspberry Pi 4 B 8Gb
  • RAM: 8 Gb
  • SDD: Scandisc SDD 250 Gb
  • Kernel: Linux Ubuntu 21.04

Second relay node coming soon…

Monitoring of the nodes is done through Prometheus/Grafana dashboards.
