I have been a contributor to Stacks since 2018, and am based out of Europe.
I worked on the Android SDK back in 2018. Since then, I have submitted many patches, test libraries and tools as they have become available. I have developed Stacks apps, have mined Stacks earlier this year, and even deployed the first user contract on mainnet.
I am inspired by all work that helps to bring back a user-owned internet. I offer this stacking pool as a stepping stone to achieving that vision.
You can reach me on discord (friedger.btc#0185) to provide feedback and ask questions.
As delegatee, I cannot make any APY promises about the payouts. It depends on how much the miners transfer. We do not know in advance, but you can view stacking.club to get an idea.
This pool is run for the community, there are no fees.
THE POOL CLOSES 200 BLOCKS BEFORE the beginning of the next cycle.
If you are late, we will include you in the next cycle. The Pool re-opens immediately after the beginning of the next cycle.
When we know more about the upcoming hardfork for Stacks 2.1 we might update our stacking strategy to provide you the best stacking service.
You can use one of the Friedger Pool delegatee addresses here:
Do not send any Stacks token to this address, follow the delegated stacking flow in your preferred wallet
Locking for 1 cycle:
Locking for 3 cycles:
Locking for 6 cycles:
Locking for 12 cycles (even beyond block #700000):
The more cycles you choose, the less cool down cycles you have. After each locking period, there is one cycle where you can’t receive any rewards on your address. You can create a new address and delegate from there.
Please do not stack less than 40 STX. Small payouts are hard to manage.
We start locking your STX around 1000 blocks before the start of the next cycle. You can join until 200 blocks before the start. The pool will be closed around 50 blocks before the start.
Also, Friedger Pool will re-stack your STXs for the next cycles without any action from you when you chose to delegate for indefinite duration. If you want to leave the pool, just revoke in Stacks Wallet.
You can track Bitcoin earnings here, which gets converted to STX and paid to you within 2 days after the last reward was received:
The deprecated address SPCKCVQ6FTZJQYJ42FGE0FCJ1Y1QMTAK0P2WMGX7 has reached end of use and Stacks on this address won’t be re-stacked. Also the old Bitcoin address 1AJm7XWhbPTFqgtJT6oS9wQ3XThk7rA2yF won’t receive any rewards anymore.

You have the option to lock your stacks for one cycle, for three cycles or for 6 cycles. Use the corresponding address. Your stacks will go in one pool independent of the locked cycles.
Rewards are sent to us in Bitcoins. We are using the BTC address corresponding to our STX address that deployed the first user contract on mainnet.
We only stack your stacks when the expected minimum is met using our best effort. Note, that the protocol requires that your stacks cool down for one cycle after your locking period.
We will payout rewards in STX within 2 days after the last reward was received. It will be proportional to your contribution to the pool. We use the coingecko value of BTC/STX at the time of payout.
