Redelegation commences on Cardano
The Cardano Foundation has just wrapped up its redelegation process, which significantly shifted its delegation strategy. The updated approach emphasized stake pool contributions to the community, promoting the creation of open-source solutions and offering support for the broader ecosystem.
This new initiative is designed to nurture the growth of the ecosystem by recognizing the exceptional efforts of stake pool operators (SPOs) and encouraging their participation.
As per the Foundation’s post on 21 April, more than 250 pools applied for the redelegation of the Cardano Wallets. Nevertheless, out of these, just 45 pools were chosen randomly and granted delegation.
