You receive an average 5% APY on your staked ADA. Once your ADA is staked in the Upstream pool you receive your rewards directly to your wallet every 5 days. It’s totally safe and secure, because only you know your wallet keys, as always only you have access to your ADA.
Charity donations from our profits
Our aim is to use Upstreams staking pool profits to help charities and individuals that support environmental causes, and financial education.
“Cardano is a blockchain platform for change makers, innovators, and visionaries, with the tools and technologies required to create possibility for the many, as well as the few, and bring about positive global change”
Our strategy is two fold, firstly to introduce as many people into the Cardano community as possible, and secondly do something that is important to us at Upstream, and that is giving back.
By donating 30% of our staking pool profits to charities and community driven projects, we aim to take as many people on our journey as possible.
