She has B.A in English and Literature from a reputable University and currently studying for her M.A in the same field. She recently became a contributor at Herald Sheets in order to fulfill her thirst in reporting crypto and blockchain occurrences, the interest she built over the years.




    Cardano Foundation focuses on realizing the full decentralization of Cardano blockchain. This resulted in the launch of Shelley testnet, which awaits integration into mainnet by the coming year. As promised, Shelley’s incentivized testnet is now set to go live.

    As Cardano community members look forward to leveraging on the recently launched incentivized testnet, Herald Sheets thereby decides to unravel the details about the subject matter.

    What is Shelley Testnet

    Cardano’s Shelley testnet opens an avenue for stakeholders to operate a stake pool in order to earn the digital token ADA as reward. According to the information inferred from IOHK official website, users that possess ADA in either Yoroi mainnet or Daedalus wallet during the snapshot that was conducted on 29th November 2019 will be enabled to take part in the incentivized testnet as a delegator or stake pool operator or both by the end of this year.

    The major objective of the Shelley incentivized testnet is to test the theory in the Ouroborous incentives whitepaper in a real-world setting.

    The necessity of Testnet Incentives

    Incentives are necessary to stimulate the success of a system. To get a team to push for success in an organization, incentives would have a big role to play.

    So, Cardano as a decentralized network with a large number of users around the world needs to incentivize its users for the expected result. Each of the tons of participants has the right to incentives so as to perform their roles adequately.

    Testing the Cardano’s Shelley Incentive Model

    As reported, the earlier incentive model introduced to the incentivized testnet will still be preceded by another model subsequently. This phase is only meant for the verification of assumptions, coupled with testing the incentives model stage by stage.

    Achieving the above facts step by step, the network and the responses of participants will be easily explored to know whether the outcome is as expected. Cardano will also seize the medium to test both theory and technology.

    In the inception of the incentivized testnet, several factors of rewards calculation will not be included, but the information relayed on IOHK.io has it that various factors will be incorporated as the process of the incentivized testnet advances.

    Rewards of the Incentivized

    The level of participation of each user will determine the rewards for delegating stake or operating a stake pool on the incentivized testnet. The report aired that relatively 3.8 million ADA has been allocated as an award per era.

    The system has made a reward calculator available on the incentivized testnet website. It also includes functions to calculate other variables of rewards.
