Stakepools allow you to participate in Decred's proof-of-stake (PoS) system without the need to worry about losses due to computer downtime, flaky internet connectivity, or inconsistent power.
Notice: Missed tickets can be caused by a poorly connected proof-of-work (PoW) miner and may not necessarily be the fault of the pool.
Warning: To encourage decentralization of the network, it is recommended to avoid pools that have over 5% of network votes.
