Cardano staking calculator: Estimate Proof of Stake ADA ReturnsNote: This staking calculator used the earliest known staking rewards formula as published by IOHK. With the Shelley testnet launched in 2019, the numbers here no longer match those obtained by testnet pools, since the staking formula has changed. Left here for historical reasons.
Cardano Staking Formula and Methodology: Formula obtained from the official Cardano monetary policy document. You can find a complete (and uncomplicated) technical explanation at our Cardano ADA staking rewards article. The above numbers were derived using the minimum rewards formula and should be taken as a worst case scenario. Some experts have hinted at higher rewards, though no official information is available at this time. Crypto.BI will update the calculator as newer official information becomes available.
* Percentage of Stakeholders: The percentage of all ADA in circulation which is staked for the purpose of this simulation. The higher the percentage, the lower the returns (more competitors = akin to higher network difficulty).
