Network Support

The incentivized testnet has completed - there are no more challenges to earn rewards from.

Thank you for your interest; stay tuned for more opportunities to participate in the future!

While validators and other network components are not necessarily targeted in this testnet, they are of course essential to maintaining a healthy DeCloud.

Leverage this testnet to practice your operations, or try new ones.

To earn rewards for this challenge, you should be actively participating — keep your component(s) up-to-date and respond to any network proposals that may come up.

Qualification Criteria:

Although we do not limit anyone from participating, to claim AKT rewards:

  • You must not be a resident of any of the OFAC sanctioned countries.

  • You must pass KYC/AML verification when collecting the reward. The details for which will be posted at a later time.
