Due to many reasons ADA North Pool will reduce its pledge to 50K and will also reduce costs by removing redundant relays that are costing us as much as we are getting in rewards. By doing these drastic moves I hope to continue supporting the Cardano network with ADA North Pool for a long time coming and the reduced cost will now mean I only have electricty bills, 1 hetzner server, 2x internets at home, web server in cloud and maintainance of 4 computers to take care of. I am also likely to put my energy into coding and look into contributing to the growth of the network through this way hopefully. I still believe having a solid hardware foundation is the way to go for more advanced pool operators and would pave the way for more interesting network operations and code in the future so I am not abandoning the bare metal home server approach anytime soon.
