Stakepools are the backbone of Cardano's Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism and process the transactions that occur on the the Cardano blockchain in a decentralized manner. Through Cardano's 2nd layer scaling solution "Hydra" stakepools will also be responsible  to scale the transactions per seconds capability of the network. Taking such a crucial role pool operators need to ensure their nodes are online 24/7 and technically able to fullfill their duties.
