Access to books is critical to end illiteracy worldwide. Education is key to give underprivileged children the tools to forge their own fortune. With your stake on [BOOKS] pool you will save children from poverty by giving them a chance to evolve from their predestined fate. Your 1% are everything for them.
Books pool charges only 1% margin, which is an acceptable fee for a privileged "first worlder" but can make a huge change for children in developing countries.
100% of the margin are directly donated to partner organizations or partially reinvested to the pools pledge. We secure the stability of the Cardano network and the future of [BOOKS].
Besides the charitable concept, our stakepool is run by crypto enthusiasts to ensure 24/7 uptime. We aim for the average staking reward of approx 5% per year for our delegators.
