Many epochs ago, three powerful druids pledged loyalty to the almighty Cardano.
They swore an oath to use their sorcerous skills to establish and maintain a portal between the world of mere mortals and the realm of Cardano which holds the source of all truth.
By paying a tithe to the mighty king Hetzner of the southern lands, they ensured his everlasting support of their epic quest. During the course of this quest, they built two mighty fortresses: the first one lies next to the enchanted village of Nuremberg, Germany. The other one is hidden deeply in the vast forests of Finland.
Deep in the root of the primary fortress, they ingrained the heart of their heroic endeavor: a mystical forge of blocks miraculously interacting with the source of all truth.

Implementation of gamification for delegation across the nation
We are a team of three shy and modest druids who also happen to be IT-Professionals working in the software industry, therefore we know how to operate software and servers reliably. It is our belief that professionalism does not exclude cracking jokes. To the contrary, fun is essential to raise interest in new technology and to make it more comprehensible.
Rewards are heavily influenced by the size of a stake pool. The higher the stake the more likely it is to generate blocks and therefore get rewards. Currently we’re a quite small pool as we have just recently started our operations. Thus the percentage to become slot leader/create a block is low (currently ~8%), but potential rewards (~1000 ADA per block) are shared among less delegators. Our fee is set to minimal (340ADA) and the operations cost factor is set to 2%. We try to balance the low chance to generate a block with an above-average share.
Pool size = 100.000 ADA
Personal stake = 10.000 ADA
Personal share = 10.000/100.000 = 0,1 (10%)
Pool reward in current epoch (when block is generated) = 1.000 ADA
Fee = 340 ADA
Relative costs = 20 ADA (2% from pool reward)
Number of generated blocks in this epoch = 1
Personal reward = (1.000 (pool reward) x 1 (# of blocks) – 340 (pool fee) – 20 (relative costs)) x 0,1 (personal share) = 64 ADA per epoch
