This site is part of the Decred governance process, Proof-of-Stake (PoS). We do not hold, manage, or transfer any of your DCR/decred ("funds"); we watch for your tickets, and cast a vote on your behalf when the ticket is called to vote. Facilitating the ability of all Decred users to collectively determine the evolution of the coin is the primary mission of Stake Pool Bravo. Please read Jake Yocom-Piatt's exciting post, "Upgrading Consensus", on the official Decred project blog. We'll be ready to help you vote, as you specify, or using the pool's default.
The global Decred network and it's consensus rules are entirely responsible for the generation and distribution of vote subsidy, fees, etc. As such, this pool and it's servers do not handle any of the funds — that is the job of your own wallet (on your machine) and the consensus rules of the network. No amount of decred even "go through" the pool or it's machines in order to cast the vote; the pool merely broadcasts an "SSGen", a type of transaction that signals your vote to the network and assigns the generated coins to the user and the pool in proportion to the Pool Fees specified below. As one of the outputs in this coinbase transaction, the fees are just a portion of the mined coins, not a payment from the user. Note that the vote is thus collaborative stake mining where 95% of the generated coins are received by the user's address and 5% (the pool fee) goes to support the pool's operation.
We just stay online, waiting to vote, quickly and reliably. Stated again, no user funds are transferred or managed by the pool, only votes are placed as part of the PoS mechanism of Decred. Please send any questions to the address listed below.
A stake pool is used to delegate your voting powers to a third party (the pool). The pool cannot steal your funds.
