Validators Campaign

Klever testnet is a series of competitive challenges where validators can learn, prepare, and earn points in order to prepare for the upcoming mainnet. The testnet will be divided into 4 phases, each testing a different aspect of validating and securing the Klever blockchain network.

Phase One - Onboarding

  • Initial setup of your node on reliable hardware of your choice
  • Node is in sync with the network
  • Node is registered as a validator and able to produce blocks when it is your validators turn

 

Setup your node according to the documentation provided on https://docs.klever.finance/klever-blockchain/how-to-run-a-node

We will check that the address you submitted has produced blocks. Full points if the node is up, running and producing blocks when it is your validators turn

The objective of this task is for validators to demonstrate they have monitoring enabled. The validators are free to use any monitoring of their choice but should be detailed enough to help monitor the node’s health.

You are free to set up your node monitoring any way you prefer.

You will be judged according to the following criteria

  • Half the points if you only provide evidence (screen grabs) of your monitoring on your node
  • Full points if you provide a open blog or gitub repo that shows other validators how to install your monitoring setup

The objective of this task is for validators to share a positive experience around setting up their Klever Testnet node.

A public written post should be made around your experience and shared via social media platforms like Twitter. The post should be detailed enough that others can follow how to create a node.

Will be judged according to the following criteria

  • Half points if only a post is written
  • Full points if a post is written and shared via Twitter using our Klever_io handle 


Should the post not be clear or to short you may be penalized on points

Phase Two - Infrastructure

Phase two of the incentivized testnet is all about the infrastructure and load testing.
After the testnet has been reset, you will have 24 hours to set up your node for Phase 2.

Task

Setup your node and sign within 2 days

To complete this task, validators are required to reset their nodes in a timely manner within 2 days.

Upon resetting the Testnet, validators must recreate their nodes and resync. In addition, they must get reelected. Validators who restore their previously used wallets will be the first to receive testnet tokens, and they will be able to freeze, self-delegate, and receive the remaining delegations to be elected.

Points will be calculated with on-chain data and with wallet addresses from Phase 1.

Nodes that have elected and successfully validated 

  • In the first 2 days of the Testnet reset, you will be awarded full points
  • On the 3rd day of the Testnet reset, you will be awarded half the points 
  • After the 4th day of the Testnet reset will be awarded quarter of the points 
Next Step

Task

Keep 80% uptime during load burst

Type

Network

Points

The objective of this task is for validators to have reliable nodes and keep above 80% uptime.

The Klever team will create load bursts to test the network during peak loads. Validators that are unable to keep uptime will be jailed at protocol level.

Ensure that your node is able to keep 80% uptime. If the validator has sufficient monitoring on their node with reliable infrastructure this should be relatively easy. 

Points will be calculated with on-chain data and with wallet addresses from Phase 1.

Uptime is above 80% and was not jailed. Will receive full points.

To complete this task, validators are required to reset their nodes in a timely manner within 4 days. This should be done after each reset.

Directions:

Upon resetting the TestNet, validators must recreate their nodes and resync. In addition, they must get reelected. Validators who restore their previously used wallets will be the first to receive testnet tokens, and they will be able to freeze, self-delegate, and receive the remaining delegations to be elected. 

 

Nodes that have elected and successfully validated 

  • In the first 4 days of the Testnet reset, you will be awarded full points


Submission

Points will be calculated with on-chain data and with wallet addresses from phase 1.

The objective of this task is for validators to have reliable nodes and keep the nodes online without getting jailed. 

Directions

Ensure that your node is able to run under stable conditions and not be jailed. If the validator has sufficient monitoring on their node with reliable infrastructure this should be relatively easy. 

Due to testnet being a learning space we will allow for 1 jail.  Will receive full points for 0 or 1 jail. This excludes jails from any network consensus challenges on testnet 

Submission

Points will be calculated with on-chain data and with wallet addresses from phase 1.

You will be judged according to the following criteria

  • Half points for 2 delegations to two other validators
  • Full points for over 10 delegations to multiple other validators
