The Node

Mataka1 is set up as a highly protected core block producing node. Security is our priority.

Cardano Blockchain

The relay producing nodes connect with the rest of the Cardano eco-system around the world to sync with the ever growing blockchain.


Mataka1's setup ensures that the keys that protect the core block producing node are always inaccessible.

Relay Nodes

The block producing node is only accessible to two relay relay producing nodes hosted in Poland and Singapore to ensure redundancy in the event of any disaster recovery incident.


Mataka1 is located on a server hosted behind a highly secure firewall and is only accessible to

Always On

All three nodes are constantly monitored to ensure constant operation.


Cardano & ADA

Cardano is a blockchain platform for changemakers, 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. 

ADA Is The Native Token Of Cardano. Any user, located anywhere in the world, can use ADA as a secure exchange of value – without requiring a third party to mediate the exchange. Every transaction is permanently, securely, and transparently recorded on the Cardano blockchain. 

Every ADA holder also holds a stake in the Cardano network. ADA stored in a wallet can be delegated to a stake pool to earn rewards – to participate in the successful running of the network – or pledged to a stake pool to increase the pool’s likelihood of receiving rewards. In time, ADA will also be usable for a variety of applications and services on the Cardano platform. 


Staking ADA on the Cardano Blockchain

ADA held on the Cardano network represents a stake in the network, with the size of the stake proportional to the amount of ADA held. The ability to delegate or pledge a stake is fundamental to how Cardano works. 

There are two ways an ADA holder can earn rewards: by delegating their stake to a stake pool run by someone else, like Mataka1 pool operated by us here at, or by running their own stake pool. The amount of stake delegated to a given stake pool is the primary way the Ouroboros protocol chooses who should add the next block to the blockchain, and receive a monetary reward for doing so. 

The more stake is delegated to a stake pool (up to a certain point), the more likely it is to make the next block – and the rewards are shared between everyone who delegated their stake to that stake pool. 

To delegate to Mataka1 pool, use the Pool Address at the top of this page, or Ticker MATAK on your Yoroi or Daedalus wallet.
