Cardano surpasses older PoS competitors by the number of staking pools and rewards

Though still upcoming, the Shelley period of Cardano can overtake its older and more established PoS competitors. Going by the tweets for the Cardano community, the Shelley incentivized testnet brags 10 times higher staking pools than EOS and Tron. According to the tweet, Ethereum and Bitcoin have about 10 pools that are 28 times less than what Shelley gained in just two days.

According to the calculator, running a whole stake pool is more lucrative. Allotting the same amount of ADA, while holding onto 1% of the whole stake in the pool and taking 10% of the rewards as an operator could earn the pool more than 90% of its stake yearly. As the testnet advances, the ranking of the staking pools will not be judged on performance only. This means that it would not be long before it would be judged by other things like a combination of cost, margin, pledged stake, and performance.
