As explained in the docs, rewards come from: Transaction fees (increases in time if adoption and network traffic increases) Monetary expansion (decreases in time) The sum of these is denoted by R and the share of rewards that a given pool gets is given by: where: R - total available rewards for this epoch a0 - pledge influence factor (can be between 0 and ...

In ADA all coins are already minted. The total supply is 45 billion tokens. About 13 billion coins are not used and are "locked" in the treasury. It is used to be able to pay out the rewards for every block created by the stakepool and from where you will get delegators' awards. Because there not so many transactions to pay for, all the block ...

The only risks associated with sharing any kind of public/verification keys or addresses have to do with de-anonymization. If you are concerned with Maladex, your ISP, a traffic sniffer, or any other entity possibly linking your rewards address with your IP address, then you might have something to worry about. However, assuming you aren't massively evading ...

To start, all ADA does already exist and is accounted for, as seen in the Introduction section on page 4 of the Cardano ledger spec. The spec states that, from genesis, there was about 13,000,000,000 ADA locked up in reserves (monetary expansion), which are to be slowly released on a per epoch basis at a rate of decay that is defined by a network parameter, ...

No, you do not need to withdraw rewards before moving stake pools. Cardano wallets use two accounts: one for spending ADA and one for collecting rewards. While this may sound strange, it actually has many benefits (which I won't get into here). In order for earned rewards to be spent, they must be moved from the rewards account to the spending account (...

Rewards for a given epoch X are paid out at the end of the next epoch, X+1. This is because the calculation of which stake keys get rewards is done during epoch X+1. Applying this to your example, the order of events would be: April 25th - epoch 261 ends April 30th - epoch 262 ends - rewards from epoch 261 are paid April 30th - epoch 263 starts - CSV report ...

Update 12/13/2021: My first question on Cardano Stack Exchange was What is the Penalty for Running 2 Block Producer Nodes? Which I was told, "Network can penalize." But I never received an answer as to what that penalty was, which I believe is because there is not a penalty. With that said, I believe your question is a result of a pool running 2 ...

Yes, and to the same pool. You don't need to do anything.

Normally, (UTxO + stake rewards) constitute the total stake. So the rewards are part of the pledge. One confirmation would be nice !

Your rewards are not on the pool, they are in an address owned by you. You don't need to withdraw them before redelegating.

New ADAs will be added to the pool automatically but they will not be considered for 1 epoch, because snapshot need to be submitted. You can check here how the staking timeline works. Rewards are automatically added to your wallet, you only need to withdraw if you want to spend them

You were onto the right idea, try the blackfrost approach again. After calling /accounts/{stake-address}/addresses endpoint you will see a list of addresses linked to the stake address. Pick any address from that list. Another approach that should work is using cardano-address. First get all stake addresses: cardano-address address inspect [ADDRESS] Then ...

What I do is query & grab all the data I need from: https://cardanoscan.io/pool/f8e64037e3917cd7cb94969a5374e11b9e6c939b4b69118a8eb4509f?tab=delegators And then send whatever I want using cardano-cli. Works like a charm!

You do not need a smart contract. Rewards from staking/delegating are never "locked" on Cardano, you can send immediately at any time.

The process of moving your rewards (account balance system) to your payment address (UTXO balance system) is called reward withdrawal. As per withdraw-rewards.md: Check the balance of the rewards address: cardano-cli query stake-address-info \ --mainnet \ --address $(cat stake.addr) [ { "address": "...

I found a similar question on reddit & an answer references the shelley specification which could be interesting

The vCA's have a google doc (bear with us for now) that we share amongst ourselves for tracking review the reviewers. The CAs remain anonymous while the vCA's do not. There has been some talk about in the future having a way for CAs to anonymously receive feedback for their reviews that were flagged in order to help guide CAs in the right direction. I think ...
