Last week, we successfully spun up the the Incentivized Testnet network and opened it up for stake pools to join and connect. It’s only been three days but we are thrilled to report that we already have over 300 established stake pools, ready for you to delegate to!
For anyone who participated in the 29th November snapshot, we invite you to download the dedicated testnet Daedalus Rewards wallet. You’ll be able to use this wallet to restore your testnet ada balance, browse through all the available stake pools and delegate your ada to start earning real ada rewards! Yoroi’s testnet wallet will follow shortly and expected to be available later this week.
Download the Daedalus Rewards on the official Incentivized Testnet website here.
Please remember that this is a testnet, designed to help us improve the platform and test the Cardano protocols on the way to the Shelley mainnet release. We anticipate there may be outstanding bugs or minor issues. Note that there will also be subsequent releases of Daedalus Rewards with enhanced usability, added features and functionalities. Your feedback is invaluable to us - if you experience any issues or anomalies with this early wallet release, please submit a support ticket directly through the help menu in Daedalus or log them at the IOHK Support Portal.
And for those of you interested in running a stake pool, it’s not too late! Please check out the newest documentation that lays out all the necessary steps for getting your pool running and registered on the Incentivized Testnet. We have also created a multi-part video series that goes through this process.
