Retiring AEON

2 min readJan 8, 2021


Hi all,

After giving it a lot of thought over the past few weeks, I’ve decided to retire the pool.

I’ve recently received a promotion at work, am studying after work / on weekends, volunteering time as an Ambassador and am operating the pool, all while trying to make enough time to spend with my son and fiancée. As you can likely imagine, I don’t get much sleep! 🤣

Additionally, while our stake has fluctuated fairly significantly over the life of the pool, I do not believe I have sufficient pledge to remain competitive long term.

I want to give my most sincere thank you to all of you who have supported me, through some of the most challenging periods (ITN flashbacks) and in some of the decisions I’ve made (rebranding the pool, fees etc). It really means a lot to me to know we have such amazing members in the community and I’ve been blessed to have you all on the team! 🙏🏻

A number of delegators have been asking for suggestions regarding who recommend they delegate to. Here is a short list (by no means comprehensive) of pools I believe warrant your support:

I hope you consider supporting them also!

While I know this decision will come as a surprise to you and that some of you will be disappointed, I just want to communicate how incredibly grateful I am for your support.

Cheers!! 🍻
