It is important to know that your baker has the appropriate hardware in place, as well as the knowledge to maintain and troubleshoot this as required (for example applying Tezos patches, sever management, etc). This minimises the risk of lower than expected baking rewards for delegees due to downtime or other issues.  Below we set out our offering in more detail including our current set-up and the service you can expect from us. If you still have any questions after reading this page, please don’t hesitate to Contact us.
