Desmos Network launching Desmos Primer Program. To help improving the well-being of users on social networks through blockchain technology.
Since we started coding our chain back in December, we wanted to make sure we have a continuously growing community of validators, developers and users around our testnets. That’s exactly why we introduced the Desmos Primer Program. With it, we wanted to achieve the following objectives.
The Primer program ran for 5 months, from February to July, starting from Phase 1 till Phase 5. Each phase consisted of a set of challenges for the users, and one specific challenge for validators.
Although this program helped us in discovering bugs and enlarging our community, we decided that from now on we will create separate programs for users and validators.
Desmos Validating Summer is our new incentivised program only for validators.
Unlike the the Primer program, it doesn’t consist of many challenges. Instead, validators will only have to care about one single thing: running a validator node as long as possible.
The Validating Summer program has started on August 16, 2020 and will last until September 16, 2020. During this period, we will count all the blocks that each validator signs and all the validators that have validated 80% or more blocks will receive up to 6,000 DSM as a reward.
