Shakti Pool
Supporting Women & the
LGBT Community through Cardano

Happy Couple



Shakti translates from Hindi most directly as “power”, and is described as divine feminine energy.


To honor this, we aim to harness the power of Cardano to support causes related to women and the LGBT community, with a focus on intersectionality.


For our delegators, we also commit to running a professional and reliable operation to contribute and invest in the Cardano network

Mission Driven Pools (MDP) is a collective of charitable Cardano stake pool operators. Their goal is to encourage pools to donate a part of their profits to organizations around the world.


Cardano Single Pool Alliance is a group of separate stake pool operators who have all vowed to run a single stake pool for the purpose of maintaining decentralization in the Cardano ecosystem.


Women in Blockchain is a portfolio of united women run Cardano stake pools. 





As a delegator to Shakti, we want you to feel confident about your decision to stake with us. Our pool is hosted on Microsoft Azure, and is geographically distributed across the U.S. to ensure maximal availability and resilience. Our servers are backed up regularly to ensure any unlikely disruptions can be quickly resolved.

As our pool expands, we will invest in global relays for additional availability.
