What is the function of a StakePool in Cardano?

  • Node
  • Command line interface (CLI)
  • Daedalus wallet
  • Cardano db-sync
  • GraphQL API server (Apollo)
  • SMASH server
  • Forge new blocks
  • Verify new blocks
  • Confirm transactions
  • the stakepool uses the VRF to check if it is chosen as slot leader for each slot, and if it has not been,
  • it receives a new block signed by a node, paired with theirs,
  • the stakepool verifies the VRF proof of the block, using the VRF public key of the stake pool that signed it, and if it is valid, it is added to the local blockchain.
