Cardano Heartbeat



Time in Cardano is divided into epochs. Every epoch is divided into slots. Every 20 seconds there's a slot and an epoch contains 21,600 slots. That's exactly 5 days.

Currently we are in the slot of the epoch.

twitter-shelley-calculator@2x4096×2048 712 KB We are excited to announce that we have released a Rewards Calculator on the official Incentivized Testnet website today! You can use to estimate the approximate rewards for delegating your stake or running a stake pool. It is important to note that the actual amount of ada received in rewards may vary, and will depend on a number of factors, including stake pool performance, network participation and changes to network parameters, which are part of the testing process. And in case you missed it, we also published a Stake Pool Operator Guide for those interested in reading up on the process and necessary steps to run a pool on the Incentivized Testnet. This is now available on the testnet website in English and Japanese, with Korean and Chinese to follow soon! In the guide, you’ll read about stake pool registration, which you can get started on with the launch of the CF Stake Pool registration GitHub.

Dear Cardano Community, Ahead of the upcoming Shelley Incentivized Testnet, we have received a number of questions about the Cardano Foundation’s position: whether we are going to participate in it or if we are planning to run any stake pools. The Cardano Foundation, hereby, wishes to clarify its position on the participation in the upcoming Shelley Incentivized Testnet: The Cardano Foundation will not run any stake pools during the incentivized testnet. It will, however, delegate to stake pools being run by the community and ecosystem. The Foundation aims to manage its delegation preferences by allocating to pools to achieve optimal rewards and to support the best-run pools in the community. This is in line with promoting optimal decentralization and stability of the network. The Cardano Foundation may change and adjust its delegation preferences over time to reach this objective. We hope this answers some of the questions.
