Our philosophy

As bobatea and I were brainstorming our mission, vision, and purpose for the Cardano SUSHI stake pool, we quickly realized that this project would be much greater than a mere passive income vehicle. We had hoped to earn profit, of course, what entrepreneur wouldn’t want that? However, after looking into the Cardano project further, we believed that blockchain technology, and specifically the Cardano blockchain, was poised to make a paradigm shift similar to the paradigm shift of the internet in the dot-com era boom. It’s quite the mind boggle to think that we were part of one technological revolution, but to be part of a second one in the same lifetime? Why that’s truly a marvel of human evolution and honestly we’re fully strapped in and here for the ride.

We believe that social impact is the way to real world adoption. That’s why early on, we decided we would donate 20% of our margin from the stake pool to a charity initiative. We feel passionately about food, more passionately than some, because we’re die hard foodies. But did you know, not everyone has the luxury of this basic physiological need? According to World Vision, “Globally, about 8.9% of the world’s population — 690 million people — go to bed on an empty stomach each night.” The Food and Agriculture Organization, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, UNICEF, the World Food Programme, and the World Health Organization reports that the number of people affected by hunger in the world continues to increase.

That’s why we felt it important to create our mission around this initiative because everyone should have access to a nourishing meal. We hope that you’ll help us achieve our goal of raising 1200 ₳ by the end of the year and beyond. We vow to continue contributing as long as we’re running.

We will partner with The Giving Block and publish our donations each quarter with evidence of the donation. Each quarter we will rotate our donations with the following verified non-profits:

We recently launched our first–yes–first of many giveaways to our amazing community of SUSHI pool delegators. We wouldn’t be here without our community, truly. So here’s to putting more skin in the game and reinvesting back into the community. As a small SPO, we’re learning the ups and downs and challenges of running a stake pool. It’s not easy but we believe what we’re attempting to do is valuable to Cardano and because of that, we’re in it for the long haul. Our number one goal is to scale in the short term so we can become self-sustaining in order for us to be a long-term contributor to the Cardano blockhain. As Cardano grows and evolves, we hope to grow right along with it. We have a few other projects brewing behind the scenes right now, including our entry into the NFT space and greater engagement with the Cardano community. Get excited! We’ll announce more on our twitter page so give us a follow @CardanoSushi! In the meantime, we invite you to be a part of the growth of the SUSHI pool by participating in the giveaway below.

Good luck, everyone!
