LATIN - LATINO STAKING POOL
Latino Staking Pool is identified by the ticker LATIN. We are a competitive staking pool infrastructure, deployed in the Cardano ecosystem. The Pool is operated by our company Cardano Latino LLC, which has been established in the state of Wyoming, USA. We are a family business that originated from the time of the Incentivized Testnet (ITN), continued during the Haskell Testnet (HTN) and now throughout the Shelley era and beyond, all with the purpose of offering our delegates an efficient and lucrative Staking Pool. We guarantee the effectiveness of our operation through the four components outlined below.

Why delegate to LATIN?
We are as transparent as possible
Staking pool operators can choose to report their performance statistics to PoolTool.io. As of February 2021, 18% of pool operators have reported their data.
We are amongst the few who provide this transparency to our delegators and potential future delegators. Height is an important indicator to monitor because it displays whether or not the pool is synchronized with the Cardano network. Only synchronized pools can produce the blocks assigned by the protocol. On pooltool.io when the Height field displays green, it means that pool is synchronized.
This can be confirmed by referencing the Assigned Performance percentage. LATIN has been able to maintain a 100% Assigned Performance. (90% or better is preferable)
We are competitive
We have configured a quality network of 4 servers, in a world-class virtual server provider (in Europe), with block producer backup redundancy. We utilize monitoring and alarm systems (Grafana and Prometheus), while following bestcommunication and security recommendations from the Cardano Staking Pool operator community and IOG. We have IT professionals working full time to ensure absolute maintenance of our pool. We are truly committed to running a competitive Staking Pool within the Cardano ecosystem.
Our fixed fee is the minimum possible of 340.
Our variable fee is 3.8% from launch, but as of epoch 271 it is reduced to 1.98% which will allow us to position ourselves in a select list of pools with lower rates.
We are a team
During the ITN (Incentivized Testnet) LAT1 now LATIN was launched by CEO, Jose Castro. The ITN experience drove the mission to offer redundancy in every way possible. Cardano Latino guarantees an effective and permanent service backed by IT professionals dedicated full time to support, maintain, and grow our Latino Staking Pool (LATIN).
