If you joined the testnet during this phase please follow the steps bellow, you can also consult our documentation for explicit tutorials. If you are already a participant from the previous phases skip to Step 7
Once your node has been registered, it will be continuously monitored for performance and data integrity. Please keep an eye on your node status within the Blast platform and on your own monitoring so that you'll be able to spot any misalignments. What we check: 1. Data integrity - we verify that the data returned by your node is correct and not corrupted in any way. Keep in mind that there is a zero-tolerance policy for data integrity breaches and nodes that do that will immediately be jailed 2. Latency checks 1. Light requests: 500ms 2. Heavy requests (eth_getLogs): <5s - only applicable for EVM compatible chains 3. Up-time: 99.95% 4. Sync state check: 99.99%
If any of the evaluations fail, the Node will be jailed and will stop receiving rewards for the jailing period
Nodes are automatically taken out of jail if the issues get fixed based on the following schedule:
If the problems persist after 72 hours the node will be Deactivated and its slot will be released. If you want to learn more about how the integrity protocol works you can find more in our documentation
A staking pool can be created if your node has passed the onboarding and is in an Active state, also you will be required to stake a minimum of 3000 BWR (testnet tokens). The tokens will be sent to you on the address you supplied in your registration form.
The staking mechanism and reward system is described in our documentation, please read it carefully and let us know if your claimable rewards don't seem right.
New rewards should be available every 24 hours but it would be helpful if you'd vary your claiming interval from each epoch to waiting several epochs.
You also have to option to restake your tokens instead of claiming and we would like you to test it at least once during this phase and specify it in the Phase Submission Form.
Withdraw self-staked tokens by clicking Unstake. There is a minimum of 3000 BWR, for maintaining your Staking Pool active. Once the unstaking begins, there is a waiting period until the end of the epoch for the BWR to be withdrawn.
Once the unstaking begins, there is a waiting period until the end of the epoch for the BWR to be withdrawn.
The Staking Pool can be terminated and a new one can be created on the same node.
Please fill in the Phase Completion Form so that your contribution will be taken into account. Please keep in mind that in order to receive any rewards during this testnet all the Phase submission forms are mandatory and will be the main indicator of your performance. Here are some aspects you should keep in mind while submitting your form to get a maximum number of points for this phase:
