Cardano’s Shelley Testnet Staking Calculator: a deep dive with Lars Brünjes
Want to see what ada rewards you could earn when staking arrives on mainnet later this summer? IOHK has released a staking calculator for the Shelley Testnet, so you can estimate what your rewards could be on mainnet.
(See short explanatory video on IOHK’s Twitter here:
While you can try out delegation and staking features, there are currently no rewards on the Shelley testnet. ada rewards come with Shelley on the Cardano mainnet. Currently, we estimate rewards of around 4.6% annualized on your staked ada. *****
Factors like stake pool performance total staking volume will affect the exact % (percentage) rewards you should expect. Here’s the calculator. So you can do the math. Use the sliders to understand how various parameters will affect your rewards:
For a deeper dive, check out our full walkthrough with Dr. Lars Brünjes, one of the core team behind #Cardano incentive design and implementation. He’ll take you through the core features and help explain some of the theory.
Lars will take you through the full calculator functionality, explaining parameters and options for both ada holders and stake pools, and covering both basic and advanced modes, in an extensive explanatory video.
Exciting times ahead, with staking coming soon. But a final note of caution. Scammers will try to take advantage and catch the unwary. Remember: to earn rewards, you delegate securely from your wallet.
You’ll NEVER need to send your #ADA anywhere, whatever you may be promised!
*(Please note that the Shelley Testnet rewards calculator is based on what comes out of the Treasury, and doesn’t include any Transaction Fees.)
