Our operators acquired valuable experience in managing and operating Cardno stake pools during the ITN. We were one of the first 80 stake pools created two days before the ITN went live on 12/15/2019. Since then, we successfully ran several stake pools before migrating to the Shelly mainnet.
The DApp360 team is incredibly passionate about the Cardano ecosystem. As a vibrant, hip, scientific, and extremely innovative blockchain, Cardano is the blockchain ecosystem that is ushering in the new financial operating system. Our passion translates into sleepless nights and countless hours of self-motivated, hard work. It's a LABOR OF LOVE. This passion motivates us to be extremely committed, dedicated, tuned in onto the evolution and incremental growth in the Cardano ecosystem.
