At banderini, we've always believed in the power of the blockchain to change the world.  This promise is no better encapsulated than with Cardano, a decentralised, trustless system built on years of rigorous scientific research and experimentation.  From the finance industry to supply chains, from personal information sovereignty to voting - Cardano has the means and the potential to revolutionise how we do things and bring about a new era of cheaper, safer and fairer access to the services we all need - globally.

As a holder of ADA, the native cryptocurrency of Cardano, you can help secure the network and get paid for doing it.  This is done by staking - simply select BANDA stake pool to delegate your ADA to from within your favourite wallet and enjoy compounded returns on your ADA holdings.  Your assets never leave your control and you are free to spend or move them at any time.

Core node is not exposed to the internet. Management layers are only accessible via private VPN, there are no SSH endpoints exposed to the internet on any nodes.  Block producing node is configured to only receive traffic from banderini relays.  Nodes are regularly patched and scanned for vulnerabilities


Nodes are containerised.  This mobility enables us to use orchestration tools like Kubernetes to reschedule a node somewhere else if the underlying hardware were to fail.  Docker also allows us to perform zero downtime upgrades and patching of block producing and relay nodes, so no blocks are missed.


Regional relay nodes are connected over fast private links so blocks are propagated in the quickest time possible.  8gb of RAM on each node and redundant 1 Gbps links
