Above all others, BSP is a guardian of the Cardano Network.
To prevent a 51% attack on the Cardano network all precautions have been taken to secure BSP and its private keys. The server is a bare metal system assembled and configured from scratch with all security best practices applied.
No virtualization or cloud services used!
The Status of the Pools and Nodes Displayed is in real time and unfiltered. Daily reports are published on twitter and facebook, with exact numbers for the current and next epoch. All fee changes are announced
in advance over all communication channels of BSP (Email, Twitter, Telegram, Facebook).
To maximize ROI, the most important factor is not missing the chance to create a block. To achieve this several nodes have been deployed and a control system has been created for them that ensures a 99.9% availability rating that is
reflected in the pools performance.
BSP is committed to price-match the current market.
Currently, Market Average ranges from 1% to 5%. 1% is expected to be the standard as soon as fee changes are allowed by the protocol.
BSP is located on the Island of Cyprus. And actively plays a large role on the Geographical decentralization of the Cardano network.
With BSP you will get a stress free and comfortable staking experience, with long term peak performance and fees dropping in line with the market. You will never need to move to another pool.
Our mission was clear, to protect and serve the cardano network. An oath was given and Security was defined as the most important ideal.
The First infrastructure created for BSP was the monitoring system.
Having no experience in web technologies, I spent the holidays learning several technologies. The result is a real time unedited monitoring system.
Since the first priority is Security, bare metal is the only acceptable configuration for BSP. To ensure BSP will be sustainable long term, a 12 core Thread Ripper System was created that offers huge margins for improvements
and upgrades, no matter what the network requirements may become.
With all these incredible systems, it was ime to put the BSP systems to the test. A new staking pool was created with 0% fees as an introduction gift to the Cardano community and was given the name “The
Scout Regiment”! Its goal clear, scout ahead and pave the way for the brothership!
After getting some slots it was finally time to test and refine the Commander system.
It was a rough start getting only 33% performance on day 1, and then 66% performance on day 2. Since Day 3 the commander has given BSP a near 100% performance.
Running all these awesome hardware and software is worth nothing, if delegators see an antiquated website that looks like it belongs in 1999. So I learned Bootstrap and this new page was created.
Hello, my name is Leandros Holleman and I am the operator of BSP.
I was born and raised in Cyprus. I studied electrical and computer engineering in Athens where due to the financial crisis I had to drop out and return to Cyprus where I completed my studies while working full time as a delivery boy.
I believe in Cardano because, after seeing the destruction caused by
outdated and corrupt systems in Greece, I know the world needs a powerful, reliable, scalable and trustworthy general purpose blockchain.
The kingdom of God is within man not one man nor a group of men, but in all
men! In you! You, the people, have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful.
(Charles Chaplin and 'The Great Dictator')
Only important updates will be sent using the mail list, like pools activating/deactivating or fee changes.
A new world rises, and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death.
I shall take no risk, hold no keys, expose no vulnerabilities.
I shall not host on the cloud. I shall always encrypt.
I am the guard on the port. I am the watcher on the node.
I am the shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Brothership Pool, for this night and all the nights to come.
