Stage 1

July 21 21:00 (UTC+8) - July 28 21:00 (UTC+8)

Validators will need to complete some basic tasks during this stage, such as node synchronization, on-chain identity registration, validator nomination, rewards claiming and transferring, etc. The main purpose of this stage is to test the basic functions of the Stafi chain and make validators familiarize with Stafi. After all basic tests are completed, Stafi will conduct an upgrade to the testnet that requires the assistance of validators. It is to test the smoothness of the responses and collaboration of the community.

Rewards will only be given to participants who have completed the tasks. Some tasks will have a limit to the rewards. Meanwhile, we have a mentor program — validators who help others will also be rewarded. Please note that the Stafi team has the ultimate discretion on which validators shall be given the mentor rewards based on our assessment.
