USD 300,000 worth of validator incentives are up for grabs

Crossfire, the Mainnet Dry-Run, commences today after opening for registration last month. The Dry-Run aims to stress test the network in a practical, real-world setting before its public release. This event marks an important milestone and is the final step in preparation for our Mainnet launch.

The registration saw more than 3,000 sign-ups, which included forces in the industry, such as Allnodes, Bison Trails, Figment and Forbole. The selection process to determine the final 220 validators is based on a few criteria, namely the validators’ experience in other incentivised testnets and previous participation in our Discord channel, among others. The number of validators correlates to the way that the block is being created in the current protocol.

Participating validators have the opportunity to compete with one another while completing tasks. Winning validators will share a prize pool of USD 300,000 in CRO rewards.

Competition Period
Starts: 04:00 UTC, 18 January 2021
Ends: 03:59 UTC, 15 February 2021

We have set up a Chain Discord channel to facilitate technical communications with our community as we prepare for the Mainnet launch. Join the discussion here.
