Our Cardano Pool
We operate The Cardano Forge pool with the ticker TCF1
It is our goal to be a major contributor to the Cardano ecosystem and to use our resources to assist those who are less able to take advantage of the opportunities offered to many of us.
We have set our fee at zero, yes we mean 0% so when you delegate to us, you will receive the full rewards for your stake. You cannot get better than that!

Cardano Forge is operated by a team of IT professionals with specialist skills in large scale software development and deployment using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Combined IT experience of the team is in excess of 80 years!
Our pools run on AWS EC2 instances using spot fleets to ensure both high availability and lower costs. The EC2 instances (2 relays and a single block producer node) use a common cardano-node image built from a hardened base AMI ensuring that security is built directly into the instance and supplemented by Virtual Private Cloud network security. Each instance sits behind an Auto Scaling Group that ensures a replacement is deployed immediately in the event of an underlying hardware failure. And all of this is deployed using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to ensure repeatability, and thus minimising the risk of human error.
We are proud that our AWS infrastructure and the cardano pools it supports adhere to AWS best practices ensuring a highly available, robust, and secure cardano pool in the cloud.
