Qtum Stake-A-Thon Update #4
The Testnet Stake-A-Thon finished on August 24; here is a wrap-up. Don’t worry if you didn’t get a Testnet Stake-A-Thon prize because the mainnet version is right around the corner (after the hard fork). Bring your testnet offline staking experience to the mainnet Stake-A-Thon with many more prizes over more time. This will not be a test, like on testnet. On mainnet, the coins and the prizes are real!
The Testnet Stake-A-Thon gave a way to exercise the Qtum offline staking protocol and thanks to everyone that joined in! The offline staking protocol is coming to mainnet with the hard fork at block 680,000, approximately 6:15 pm GMT on August 28. Mainnet Qtum Core wallets must update now to version 0.19.1: don’t be left behind by the hard fork!
Prizes and Registrations
For the Stake-A-Thon a total of 30 QTUM were offered in prizes every day for registered participants in the address delegation, pool delegation, and super staker divisions. A total of 820 QTUM in prizes were awarded.
During the Stake-A-Thon 224 delegation addresses were registered along with 59 super stakers. The “official” pool received 91 address delegations. The Test Team sent out approximately 200,000 Test QTUM for participants to use for delegation and staking. Now that the Testnet Stake-A-Thon is over, participants should please send the Test QTUM back to qTESTgKakJre3muEYTNEtUUJugeHMJ9Lmi
Super Staker Block Rewards
For the days August 17 to August 24 (blocks 657,584– 662,970), addresses delegated to super stakers won 50% of testnet block rewards, same as the previous week. The chart below shows the number of super staker block rewards for every 225 blocks (approximately 8-hour period) for these days.
