Variable fee: 1%
Epoch fee: 340₳
ROCA is a mission driven pool determined to provide reliability and security to the Cardano ecosystem but also to fight against deforestation in Romania.
The fixed epoch fee(340₳) will be used for nodes maintenance and the variable fee(1%) will be donated to plant new trees in affected area from Romania.
So, in two words, the pool’s mission is about decentralization and reforestation.
It refers to the transfer of control and decision-making from a centralized entity (individual, organization, or group thereof) to a distributed network. Decentralized networks (like Cardano) strive to reduce the level of trust that participants must place in one another, and deter their ability to exert authority or control over one another in ways that degrade the functionality of the network.

From 2013 to 2019, 88% of tree cover loss in Romania occurred within natural forest. The total loss within natural forest was equivalent to 31.7Mt of CO2 emissions.
What Is Staking
Staking ADA is a way to earn passive income. You can view it as earning interest on your crypto holdings.
By staking your ADA, you actively support the Cardano network by allocating resources to it and contribute to the stability of the network. In return for your support, you earn ADA tokens as a reward.
Staking is done in a non-custodial way so it’s perfectly safe; if the stake pool stops functioning then your holdings are still belonging to you so you can delegate to another pool.
