As a funding mechanism ADA holders can delegate their tokens to new projects’ stake pools.

They are rewarded with the projects’ tokens instead of ADA or sometimes both.


In the early days the team is in control of the project.

Once governance is activated:

  • Tokenholders can delegate voting power.
  • Any address with 0.01% of MELD supply delegated can create a proposal.
  • Quorum 50% of total voting power.


Will feature several different stake pools with 100% MELD rewards and 50/50 MELD and ADA.

  • 32 EPOCHS – 29 JUN – 6 DEC.
  • 0.065 MELD / ADA staked.
  • 32 * 0.065 = 2.08

If staked for 32 Epochs a user receives 2.08 MELD per ADA on Dec 8.
