Is there anything of significance beyond Shelley is required for staking?

  • I think that the upcoming Vasil fork will bring us into the Basho era that introduce scalability to the current Goguen. Commented Jun 27, 2022 at 10:37

With the Shelley upgrade, Cardano became a fully decentralized and dynamic ecosystem. In the Byron era there were no stake pools (and therefore no staking) and the blockchain was run by the creators alone.


I believe number of slots reserved in a single epoch is also increased in Shelley. In DBSync, syncing Shelley takes way too much time to sync compare to Byron era.
