We are honored to be entrusted with your Cardano stake
When it comes to trusting your Cardano stake to others, you need to know that the organization and those running the pool are technology veterans. We are seasoned in not only principles of blockchain, but security principles, networking/availability principles, and most importantly, how to apply those principles. The KARMA pool is owned/operated by Bluegill Technologies LLC, an early pioneer in blockchain node development, including a founder with a 20-year history in the network security industry, whose technology roots began in earnest in Cambridge, MA in 1996 as part of the early days of the Internet revolution.
Though a seasoned veteran of the cybersecurity industry and active witness throughout my career to the further and further commercialization of the Internet, it has become clear to me that the original ideals of international equality, real connectedness, human benefit and egalitarianism have been left on the side of the road as it were. Before any of you gets your panties in a bunch, you should know this about me - I do not take the stand that Internet commercialization is bad, anymore than I believe that this 'network of networks' was brought about to allow all of us to hold hands and simultaneously stream Kumbaya. Over my career, in life and work, there is maybe one thing that I've come to believe about this 'rage' that began for me in 1996 in a small dark room in Cambridge MA - we together, all of us, if we're being honest, have largely sat back and watched as large corporate entities and large media conglomerates define our use and perceived value in the digital age. It's pretty easy to see how this happened, but that doesn't mean it's to be ignored.
Fast forward to today, and for me, blockchain technology, at its core, is an opportunity to change the story a bit - to alter the path we've been on for the last 25 years - truly distributed computing, combined with digitalization of the 'ledger', has the potential to disrupt nearly every established commercial relationship that I can think of - to say nothing of what it could ultimately mean to government transparency, recorded history, financial independence, accountability and human memory. Blockchain, implemented well, has the ability to round out the story, to even the odds, to produce some real network benefits where frankly far too few have been seen.
I believe as time goes on, that Cardano and other advanced blockchains will provide a foundation that accelerates financial inclusion, representative government equality, and untethered monetary strength across the globe. These ideals are exciting, and I think it's important to exhale from time to time and remember how we got here. It was not through bad intention as some would say, or through the evil deeds of wealthy and powerful individuals and corporations. In my view, it is simply a case of the work not being done - we have 'miles to go before we sleep', and so let's rededicate ourselves to some ideals that have been lost, and let's grab hold of this opportunity for what it is - an opportunity to do more for more, not more for less.
With this in mind, it is increasingly important to me to give back to the communities that have given me so much, who have quite literally shaped my career and made it possible. To that end, the KARMA pool is committed to giving 20% of all earnings to charity. Specifically, I have been greatly impacted by the plight of children with special needs, and to the 2 cities that have meant so much to me in my personal and professional development over the years - Boston MA and Milwaukee WI. With these 2 great urban areas in mind, and the children that in so many ways make their heartbeat possible, I will be dividing the donations between Penfield Children's Center in Milwaukee and Horizons for Homeless Children in Boston. I have personal connection to both, and can vouch for their transparency, deep commitment to those in need, and the most incredible professionals and children I've ever met. Please join me in taking Cardano to a truly new level, and to sowing the seeds of our future by committing to children who need our support. Thank you so much for joining me on this journey.
First and foremost, security is quite simply the most important aspect of any distributed computing model. Blockchain nodes/pools and the code upon which they're built must follow strict layered security principles, with attention to every component - from the network, the servers, the software and everything in-between. We take these matters very seriously, with 20-plus years of experience building and securing highly visible systems.
Founded in 2014, Bluegill Technologies LLC has been at the forefront of research into distributed computing models, securitized code design, and groupware re-design. We apply our experience in node/pool design and experience building highly available networks and applications to benefit you the staking public.
We're here to help with any questions you might have on our pool, or underlying technologies and principles. We are stewards of a large Cardano stake ourselves, and treat every customer's stake as if it were our own. Let's grow Cardano together, and truly reap what we sow!
